  1. Thanks for the quick and helpful replay. Saraf
  2. Another inquiry. How does one get to the air blower fan situated behind the dash board (Boxster 2005) by the glove box. A fluttering sound occurs when the heater is activated either on auto or manual. Not a problem but more an annoyance. Just wondering? Saraf
  3. Thanks for the quick reply and help. Saraf
  4. How do I replace the front left parking light on my Boxster 2005 . Do I need any special tools? Thanks Saraf
  5. Thanks for the help. I will give it a try tonight. S
  6. Any suggestions on how to replace burnt out orange front side light. Do not really want to take it to the dealer for something this minor. Boxster 2005 Thanks
  7. I'm curious to know how this turns out...kindly update as the situation develops. good luck... Just an update. Happily I have my ride back on the highway and running perfect. I have collected the hard data on paper with the requisites written statements backing up the data from qualified personnel and am proceeding in discussion with a lawyer to move forward in small claims court. Dealership responded to the Better Business Bureau investigation by saying that I got angry for no reason and removed the car before the had a chance to fully investigate the situation. Justice moves slowly but I am confident the "black box" data proves them incorrect. Take care Relaxed motoring good evening to all this is an update to the problem that occured as per the above information. The Porsche dealership and Porsche North America took over 2 1/2 years dragging out this situation before we reached a settlement in my favor. Happy motoring Take care
  8. Just an update. Dispute is now moving toward the courts with company Lawyers using all legal methods to delay the meeting in a court room. First date has been postponed since the said the did not have enough information. Happy cruising.
  9. Hi Chris Just noticed your question that is similar to the sound that I am hearing in my 2006 Boxster. A Canadian car. Have you come up with any solutions to locating and removing the sound producer? Saraf
  10. Thanks for the info Shawn Most of the time I can start the car, parked in a warm garage, drive around outside in the cold weather, activate the heater by pushing the auto button with no strange "flutter" sound coming from behind the glove box. (the sound is not a rough bearing sound). Occasionaly the "flutter" sound will start immediately when the fan starts. Is there anyway of looking at the interior workings of these units without to much work. Just some thoughts Saraf
  11. Happy New year I have a puzzling situation. When I turn the heat on to automatic in cool weather, a small flutter sound occurs behind the dash glove box. The sound stops when the fan is off. The car motor can be running or off, makes no difference. The sound does not seem to increase when the fan is sped up using the manual feature, although the sound may be drowned out by the sound the fan and air. The most puzzling part is that this does not happen all the time. I cannot get a constant set of parameters to this situation. This sound is not affecting the car in any way. I have thought of removing the interior panels of the car but have decided against such a foolish activity since I am not mechanically inclined. Perhaps this is just my way of having a customized Porsche. LOL I thought perhaps someone else has experienced this situation.
  12. Merry Christmas Just an update to situation. Porsche Corp and local dealership were deaf, dumb and blind with no response until I filled a claim with the courts on this matter through a lawyer. Received a very strange reply from them. Waiting for further movement or comment from them. Car is still running superbly in this Canadian winter. Take care.
  13. Sorry, summertime and the top is down and am cruising in the sunshine. A qualified garage in the city that does work on Porsche, BMW, Ferrari and Lamborghini dropped a new Porsche motor in. They pulled the DME information and will swear that the motor did not break because of any over rev. So we are off to small claims court or an arbitration panel that if binding. Thanks for the continued interest in this event. I will keep you informed as best I can. Saraf

  15. An update to this issue. I had the motor replaced by a qualified, competent and professional garage and the Porsche runs sweet. They dumped the information from the computer and they found the information that it contained. Contrary to the statement that the Porsche dealership made that it could not find the time date stamp when the motor over revved and it must have been the moment before the motor broke; this new information dump said something totally different. The car has 891.4 operating hours on it when the motor damage occured. The revs at range 1, 7300-7500 rpm and range 2, 7500-7700 rpm, happened before and up to operating hour 828. The four ignition hits in range 3 to 6 happened up to or on operating hour 164, 727 operating hours before the motor broke. The mechanic will attest that 4 ignition hits is not enough to make a motor break. I have a feeling that the Porsche dealership had the time date information but would not share this with me so they get me to pay for the motor and then claim warranty costs from Porsche. I am a happy camper since this is hard evidence that Porsche will have to address. Happy, top down motoring in the city today.
