    2002 Boxster
  1. that would be the extension used on what appears to be a ford F250 used to lower the spare tire. There is an adapter that looks similar to the socket used for security lug bolts that would go on the end. it gets inserted in the rear bumper of the truck and you crank it to lower or raise the spare tire winched up underneath
  2. I had this problem on my 02 boxster. had to replace the driver side door latch mechanism. There are 2 switches that trigger the window to go down about 1/4 inch when you open the door. one on the inside door handle, and one on the outside. if you pull the handle a bit, and the window goes down, then they are working fine. Inside the door latch mechanism there are several other switches. One senses the condition of the door latch, letting the computer know if the door is open or closed. What you are describing is a failure of the door latch switch, which unfortunately, is not servica
  3. ok, so after trying a bunch of different search words, it appears to be a broken switch mechanism in the door locking assembly itself. i see there are some good tech documents on replacement. thanks renntech!
  4. Hello, Thanks in advance for your help. my driver window is not staying down when i open the door from either inside or outside handle. I mean, it lowers when i open the door with either handle, but as soon as i let go the window moves back up even if the door is open. I have not been able to find the exact problem by searching so thought I'd ask for help. can you help me diagnose / troubleshoot the problem please? thanks ABE
  5. Update on the leak. Local independant mechanic has replaced the 1/2 shaft differential seal. I think that's what he called it. Anyway a seal with a spring around the inside where the spring holds the seal tight around the shaft. I wish i had kept the old one to show. it looked like it had gotten hot and melted just a bit. maybe a dry startup at one point? anyway, leak fixed and didn't cost too much.
  6. thanks for the input, it's definitely a brownish color oil. i'll see what I can do with the DIY you've posted. Thanks again!
  7. i checked and no tear in the CV boot. there is some spray where it has been thrown around. it's definitely an oil and not a grease like i think you'd find in the cv boot. So i'm guessing transmission seal? Anybody have any $$ estimates or DIY on repair? Thanks again
  8. Hey renntech viewers, i need your help. I noticed a very small quantity of oil on the floor of my garage under the back of my 02 base boxster with tiptronic. Upon further investigation i noticed what appears to be oil dripping from the passenger rear boot where it connects to the transmission. Please see the attached photo. I took to top off and looked at the AOS and it does NOT appear to be leaking, so any thoughts? Thanks
  9. Hello, I'm wondering if anybody has done the mod to add 3 blink control relay to a porsche. My wife's Touareg has this feature where if activate the blinker just a little, it will blink 3 times. This way it doesn't stay on all the time. I have found a VW part 000-998-229-A that I am not sure if it would work on a boxster. I tried several searches for comfort signal, three blinker, etc. but no luck. If anybody knows how to do this mod I would appreciate a link. Thanks
  10. mine squeaks a bit too, and I tried all the adjustments I've read here. So Before I install every fall, I spray some food grade silicone spray onto a rag and wipe all the seals / gaskets thoroughly. this seems to take care of them. no need to remove the top, just release the front latch and lift up slightly. Hope this helps.
  11. sorry about that, i posted the year etc. in the DIY forum. 2002 boxster base, 2.7 with tiptronic
  12. Hi there, was in process of cleaning my TB when I broke this Y connector on the air lines. Anybody have any idea what it is, where to get, and how to replace? Thanks
  13. OK, so I took my TB apart to clean this morning. when reassembling I broke this Y fitting for the air lines between what I think goes between the supply of the TB and the intake manifolds right above the heads maybe? The air lines are pretty old and tough. Any ideas as to how to get these air lines apart and replace this part? I've also posted a request for the part on the other forum. Thanks all.
