  1. No, the seal for AOS to the block was leaking. I removed it to change the seal. Replaced the o rings in the j tube and decided to change the bellows as well.
  2. I removed my 2 year old AOS from my 1997 Boxster to replace the seal that goes between the AOS and the engine block. Also ordered a new bellows, and 2 new clamps for the bellows, I ordered 1 top and 1 bottom clamp. The bottom clamp comes with a small plastic appauratus the holds the clamp open until removed. Makes changing the AOS much easier. The last time I changed my AOS and the bellows and clamps I did not get one of these. I clamped a small pair of vise grips to the clamp to hold it open...maybe they have been around for years...? anyway here's a picture.
  3. Sounds like a good idea. I curently have the hack that prohovie is referring to. Where did you make the connection for the washer heater circuit? Mine is a 1997...Thanks
  4. Thanks, I did...it was well maintained and working in a small Foreign Car specialist in Vancouver. The garage owner was 8 when his father had the lifts installed...he made sure he sold it to someone who would use it and not scrap it. Here's a picture of how I unloaded it.
  5. I did the same thing on a Dodge Ram 5.2L front cover. Put wrong bolt in front cover after swapping the engine. Actaully broke the timing chain when I tried to start the engine. Of course engine would not start...had to remove cover and replace the timing chain. Now I take a piece of cardboard and sketch the shape of what I am removing. then put X's where the bolts are are punch a hole. As I remove the bolts, they get put in the same spot on the diagram and it makes for trouble free re-assembly.
  6. Part number on my AOS is 996.107.023.04 Here is a picture of the port in the block that the AOS fits into. Looks like some leftover gasket material? I thought maybe the oil pump or cam cover was leaking but after I got it in the air I could see the oil was coming from somewhere higher on the block. Very small amount but it drips on the exhaust occasionally. Should I be using sealant on the red rubber seal?
  7. 4" of concrete, has only 1 hydraulic cylinder and 2 sets of cables for the other posts. 220v 3phase motor that I am running on 220v single via an inverter. built a set of lift bars that match the the lift holes of the car. I have seen 4 post and 2 post Bradbury's but never a 3 post...
  8. Currently have my foglights hacked as daytime running lights. (DRL required in Canada) Instead of the foglights i want to use the small lights inside the headlight that go on when you turn car off with the headlights on...I don't know what these small lights are called. Has anyone done this?
  9. Thanks Maurice. What about a 1997? I know there is different models of the AOS...maybe I got the wrong one?
  10. Installed this hoist in my 2nd garage for my boxster. It is an oldie but a goodie. Easy to get at engine and transmission. Paid $400...1977 Bradbury 3 post.
  11. Need part number for small red seal on bottom of the AOS that seals AOS to block. Changed AOS about a year ago and now it is leaking from the bottom port. Don't really want to buy whole AOS if I do not need to. Thanks
  12. 1997 Boxster windows drop when unlatched, top goes about 6 inches down then stops, then top goes up and down about 3 inches but will not go all the way down or all the way up. Pushing the down button or up button makes no difference. I have had problems with the latch micro switches in the past and have a new switch coming from Sunset. Any ideas?
  13. Replacing the carpet in my 1997 Boxster. Previous owner was a serious smoker and did not believe in ashtrays apparently. Found this wire pinched inside the spring under the passenger seat. At first i thought it was just caught in the spring but after I removed the seat it became clear that this wire is enclosed in the spring...Any ideas how it got this way?
  14. Removed the frost plug, Obviously it has been leaking. Replaced it with an 18mm frost plug from Napa. Resealed cover with Napa copper permatex. It seems to be considerably thicker than the Loctite 5900. This time I removed both blowers from the passenger side and dropped the engine a bit. Made it easier to get the cover back on. Just waiting on parts from Auto Atlanta...o ring's and spark plug tubes. Next time will use Sunset...much faster shipping and cheaper.
