    04 Porsche Boxster S
  1. 04 Boxster S hit and run :angry: ! Can someone help me to understand what is needed to remove the front bumper cover and what clips or fasteners I may need to replace when it is reinstalled. Do you have a break-out view of the front bumper that may show what needs to be removed? I have good DIY skills but the more details I can get the better I will be. Thanks
  2. 04 Boxster S with a CDR-23. I need to identify the speedometer sensor wire color? Can you please help?
  3. Warranty ended this Sept. Do you have the instructions for the door panel removal and part # for any clips that may become damaged during the process?
  4. After looking over the wiring diagram for a Targa shade (blinds) switch, its internals appear to be identical to the diagram for a 996TT spoiler control switch which I've attached. BTW, if you find some other switch which has more desirable graphics on it, you should be able to transfer its toggle (cap) over to the body of a Targa shade switch, or 996TT spoiler switch, and use that combination. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> Thanks, I'll order the Targa switch today.
  5. I would like to thank all the folks that provide the information on this site. I would be in the dark without you. After review of the wiring digram (provided by this site!) of the power window switch I conclude that it can't be used to control two garage door openers and have the illumination lights hooked up too. Can be forced to work if you want to power your garage remote with a battery (not connected to your car in anyway). Can not share the ground of the car or it will short out. I would not recommend trying it. Reviewing the other posts it is concluded that the Targa Switch is the best looking candidate anyway for a garage door hack. Part #:996.613.211.910.A05 Before I order one I was hoping to see a wiring diagram. Any one have one. Another choice I have seen is the spoiler control switch. This one will work very well to control two garage door openers and dash-illumination, but doesn't look as good for a garage door. Thanks
  6. I figured out the switch except for what two spades would be used for the light (internal to the switch, lights when you turn on your dash lights). If I use an adjacent switch for the "light" power what are the wire colors. (2004 Boxster S) Also what color is/are the wires to the powered cell phone connector. Is this wire always hot?
  7. Thanks for the info. What color wire is the "cell phone connector", and is it powered all the time? or is it so obvious I should not ask. I am using a power window switch for the hack, I have figured out the switch wiring except for the internal switch light connectors. I figure to take the power from an adjacent switch. What color wires would this be on a 2004 boxster.
  8. Anyone have a similar problem? When I first put down either window I hear a click/pop sound when the window reaches the bottom. Typically it will not do it twice in a row, which will make it hard to figure out what the cause is or how to fix it. Any ideas?
  9. Getting ready for a couple of DYI hacks on my 04 Boxster S. 1st one is the garage door opener hack. I am replacing one of the blanks in the center console and would like to mount the opener under the hood in case I need to get to it. Two questions. Any recommendations as to where I should take the power from for the remote, and how to run wires through the front “firewall” into the front trunk. The garage remote uses 9V battery, do I need to convert the 12V to 9V? I understand the easiest place to get power for the light in the switch is from an adjacent switch. Any other suggestions would be appreciated.
  10. thanks, I did a search and found the bad news. I'll keep in touch if I hear any thing new
  11. 2004 Boxster S with Bose Amp and Speakers and 6 CD changer (P73 option, Sound Pkg, Bose (Digital) Are there any additional inputs available on the back of the radio unit? Trying to hardwire an aux input to the radio unit (ie. my iPod) Don't like the i-Tunes option of transmitting through the FM
  12. Just order some Porsche parts from Sunset Imports. Very helpful and knowledgeable people!
  13. Saw this on a hack. Is this the right part to use with this switch or should I use a Porsche part. VW/Audi Part # 443-972-995 socket on the switch
