  1. Hey jcraw, The car is great! frankly it is far better than my 997s! Unfortunately my motor blew up, but the good thing about Boxsters is there are many relatively cheap motors floating around... The new motor is in the car and it's ready for my next event. I have posted some more photos... Talk Soon...

  2. Hey jcraw, I have been to 6 track days this year thus far and I am loving it. We just stripped the car down again, in order to paint the interior and the cage. I have to say, it's looking really good! Talk Soon...

  3. Went for an awesome drive yesterday!!

  4. Life is good! Looking forward to next Friday! It’s supposed to stop raining and get into the mid 60's. So, I’m going to be taking my son for his first ride…

  5. How is it going up there?

  6. Just got home from the doctors office. My broken foot isn't healing. Need to stay off of it for 4-6 more weeks. I've only driven my car 4 times this year. Sure sucks....

  7. Car is looking good...

    I like that color!!

  8. Loren, The code worked!! Thanks again for all your HELP!! jlaw Each code is specific to your serial number. It would be pure luck if any of the other codes here worked for your radio. Try 8262 or 8260
  9. Loren, Can you please help me with a radio code? I was able to pull the serial number and model number following your directions. But, over the last month, I've tried the codes below that I gathered from this 53 page thread. The radio reads "code". After I've tried 3 incorrect codes, it reads "wait" for about an hour. 1234 1235 5650 5648 8967 8965 2835 2837 6401 6403 1130 4582 4584 2897 2899 6472 6470 7199 CDR210 Model: R2896 Serial Number: T5003208 Thanks, jlaw

  11. Hello, would this diagram be the same Boxster? I'm having the same issue and want to try switching my coils on 2 and 3 cyl. Thanks!!
  12. Hello, I've been searching the site on information on radio code. I've realized I need to get the serial number and go through the dealer, since it is not on any of my paperwork or the car (hood, truck, and door jams). Anyway, I read on the site that you can 1) Turn on Radio Power 2) Hold down TP button 30 sec radio will beep... I've done this and when I press the TP button, it just rotates thru the radio stations. The radio doesn't beep and then stops at a local radio station. Any clues on how I can get the serial number and radio code. I have a 97 Boxster with a CDR-210 radio. THe face plate comes off and there is an 18 digit number on the back. I'm having a problem with my drivers side window not lowering when the door handle is lifted. The key remote only opens the passenger door. The drivers door has to be opened with the key. Anyway, I need to remove the door panel and want to disconnect the battery before removing the panel because of he airbag.
  13. Thanks! I'll be doing the work myself. I'll get back with you after this weekend. I'm planning on taking the door panel off then.
  14. Hello, First, I would like to say THANK YOU!!! I love this site!!! It has been a great resource! I had the dreaded convertible / clam shell / cable issue and have learned how to do my own maintenance!!! Looking forward to trying to repair the screeches on my rims! Anyway, I have a 1997 Boxster and was wondering if anybody else has had theses problems. Problem 1 When using my key remote it makes a terrible buzzing noise in the drivers door by the door handle. The drivers door will not unlock by the key remote. I have to lock the door manually with the key. The remote will unlock the passages door. Also, when turning the key in the door lock, sometimes it feels as if the key will not turn. It feels like there is something inside blocking. Problem 2 I’m having issues with the drivers door window. Intermittently, when I lift up on the handle the window does not drop down. So, the window is stuck in the weather-stripping. Also, it happens when opening the door from inside the vehicle. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!
