  1. Maurice, enormous thanks to you for taking the time to write such a comprehensive reply, it's much appreciated. I shall attack the issue today and post the results. Simon
  2. Hi Guys, My 1999 Boxster has had it's hardtop on all winter, and now that Spring has sprung and the sun is shining I naturally took it off.... and found a problem: When the soft top is closed and the clamp fastened, the windows stay open a few inches and refuse to close. They will go fully down, but not fully up. When the soft top is fully retracted (or the hard top is in place) the windows function correctly. When the hard top is on and I undo the clamp, the windows drop a few inches correctly... so the microswitch above the rear view mirror seems to be working. I proved this by pressing it with my finger then trying to retract the soft top- the soft top stays put as it should. So what is the cause of the problem? Is there more than one microswitch in the system (probably yes, there must be something that tells the soft top when it's reached the fully retracted position)? And / or is there some logic board controlling everything that's blown? If I can't figure this out then I'll have to live with the hard top on all summer (and summers only last a few days in the UK so the situation is desperate!)
  3. Guys, I'm going to attempt a DIY re-charge on my '99 Boxster... wish me luck. I know the process isn't complicated but so far I haven't found a how-to, and I don't have a workshop manual. Could someone kindly write down the steps. The correct pressures and photos would be really helpful too. This'll be a great resource for everyone. Cheers, Simon
  4. Hi Guys, my first post here, sorry if it's in the wrong place.... I can't find anywhere Hi-Fi specific. I want to add a line-in to my CR22 stereo. I don't have a CD changer or phone kit installed. Does anyone know which connector pins would work as line-in? I will wire up a plug to a 3.5mm jack and flush mount the 3.5mm jack in the glove box. Would this approach work? Anyone tried it? I really don't need to control my iPod from the head unit via an expensive adaptor! Thanks :)
