My Boxster 987 (2006) Leaked coolant the first time last month, but stopped after that for a good 4 weeks before it happened again. This time all the coolant leaked out after an hour of drive. I thought it could be some hose or radiator leak, but after thourough check, none of these showed any signs of stress or leakage. I inspected the area of leak and found that it leaked mainly at the rear wheel where the coolant expansion tank directly lies. I also found the area of the rear bonnet where the coolant cap and oil caps are, wet with vapour. I suspected it could be the expansion cap that was faulty. Is there any release/ relief valve on the cap that causes excess pressure to purge coolant out from the expansion cap? If I have to buy a new expansion cap, is this cap the same for all year of manufacture? (97-08) another question - there is a metal lever behind the plastic cover where the oil and coolant caps are, do I have to release this valve if I refill the coolant with water to remove air from the system, since the coolant all leaked out bone dry, I needed to remove excess air from the system. thanks.
thanks loren and ericinboca, the broken clip looks like it's at the position of #21 , but from the diagram, the shape doesn't seem the same. I have attached a photo of the broken clip. it is rounded with an extension on one end. Any part number for this? Is this the clip that attaches the lever that controls the angle of the headlights? Thanks guys.
Is there a part number to this clip? Does it matter if this clip is not replaced? What is this thing anyway? It seems like there is a connecting rod that moves a lever everytime the control arm link moves. I am confused.
My Mechanic broke a black plastic clip supposedly link to a sensor lever that was hooked to the rounded end of the control arm link. What sensor is that and it was attached to only one side of the arm. I am trying to replace this piece before he completes the fixing, but I just couldn't figure out what part is it and what does it serve. Anyone that can enlighten? Thanks
thanks Loren i just needed some figures from anyone who has a similar set up so that it could serve me as a guide as to what I can expect from the alignment to give my car the optimum handling and minimum uneven wear on the tires.
thanks for your advice. given that the guy at the alignment shop doesn't have any clue on what specifications for my car with the modified parts, could you or anyone give me an idea of what the specifications should be roughly like? could I take it from the specifications for Cayman instead? Our cars drive with the steering wheel on the right hand side, will it be of any difference from the left hand ones ? thanks
Hi, Is there anywhere I can find out the factory specifications for the standard Boxster 987 (2006) Wheel Alignment? I need to do an alignment for my car, however my car is no longer the factory standard as I had the following items changed - - Eibach Pro Kit - 19" Carrera S Wheels - H&R 7mm/14mm Spacers Will it be possible to get my car to the factory standard specs without having to change any of my items? How do I let the guy at the alignment shop know since he does not have the software details of my car alignemnt specs? One more thing, I heard from some guys that it's better to sit in the car whilst doing the alignment, and if possible fill up the tank too. How does that affect the alignment, if it affects at all. Thanks.
Anyone knows the amount of brake fluid that needs to be flushed for both the Manual and the Tiptronic Boxsters? What the manual states is that the car needs only 0.39L for the brake fluid. Then how about the Clutch? Does the Tiptronic works the same as the Manual ones? Thanks.
I recently changed my engine oil and oil filter at 4000km / 8month interval from the previous change. Now total mileage 33000km, March 2006 Old. My mechanic, during the oil change, removed my oil filter and took my oil filter casing to wash with water. To his surprise, he showed me that during the washing of the filter case, the water turn red. I checked the used oil filter, however didn't find any part of the filter contain red ink parts or prints (it was Mahle filter). My previous oil change was Mobil One. We were totally confused and didn't know what it could have been, any one? (Just a wild idea, could it be that my previous mechanic filled my coolant into the wrong inlet? (My coolant is red!) Could it have caused white smoke or anything that I might have noticed if so?)
