    2005 Porsche Boxster S
  1. I was able to get the left drivers side fan to spin slowly by applying 12 volts continuously with a 10 amp battery charger connected, and spinning the fan blades by hand, but it turns very slowly, stops often, and there is some play in the bearing. Wondering if I can get it out without too much work, if it can be rebuilt.
  2. After fixing a coolant leak in my '05 Boxster S, (see my thread on replacing the Coolant Guide Housing), I discovered that both of the radiator fans had stopped working. The passenger right side was a quick fix- there was a small piece of gravel between the fan blades and the housing. Spinning the fan by hand got it going again, and it runs full speed with the AC on. I understand that the 987/997 models have an intelligent fan control unit which varies the fan speed based on demand, instead of the two speed feature using a ballast resistor in the earlier 986/996 models. The driver's side,
  3. Sorry for not posting for a while. Anyway, the coolant guide housing was replaced, and there is no coolant loss now, opening the bleed valve seems to have removed any air bubbles, and the car runs great.

  4. Progress! I removed the front engine mount to be able to remove the Water Guide Housing. Access to the top engine mount bolts is very tight, so I used a 15mm crow's foot on a 3/8" breaker bar to break them loose from above. The mount is slotted for those top bolts, and the mount slips down with the top bolts in place, but you have to remove the studs for the lower mount to do so. Also had to remove the oil pressure relief valve to provide clearance to remove the Water Guide Housing. The seam is broken on the plastic housing about 3 inches long. I filled it with water, and it drips out. Thi
  5. Flanders- Thanks very much for your reply regarding supporting the engine, and removing the front central engine mount. That's encouraging. I'll try it as soon as I have a few hours, and report back. Regards, Gary
  6. At first I thought the water pump was leaking, but with careful examination, discovered the plastic "Water Guide Housing" (P/N 987-106-508-04) used to route coolant from the front of the engine to the front radiators, sprung a rather large leak at the mold seam on the bottom of the part near where it makes a 90 degree bend and joins the "Henn" fitting on the large rubber hose. I removed the 9 screws attaching the housing to the engine, and have a new replacement part, but can't figure out how to get it out, because it snakes around the front engine mount, which looks very difficult to remove.
  7. Does anyone know where I can get a Porsche factory workshop repair manual on CD for the 997.2 series?
