What would the procedure be for removing the sensor? It appears to be on the upper right hand side, just above the blower assembly. The problem is, it looks like it's right up against the kick panel with no way to get at it, short of pulling the whole heater-a/c assembly out. I pulled the airbag out, so I can get a finger on it, but that's about it. I hope there's some easy trick I'm missing. Thanks!
I just pulled a fault code with my Durametric. It says " Porsche Fault Code #23 Footwell Blow-Off Sensor Fault Part #12". Does anyone know what this is, or where it's located? I've had heating issues on and off for a couple of years now and maybe this is why. Any help you might be able to offer would be appreciated!
Hello all. I have an issue that just recently popped up. I noticed that at my usual 71 degree wintertime temp setting, I stopped getting heat. If I crank it up to 78 or so, I can hear the actuator open and then I have heat, for a while. If I go to 80, same thing. The Interior Sensor Fan at the side vent is working fine, but can the sensor itself go bad? Is it possibly one of the other temp sensors somewhere in the system? All the actuators are operating, so it's got to be somewhere else. I'd be grateful for any ideas.
As you look at the cluster, there is a screw on the right behind the microphone, and another behind the emergency flasher switch. It's easy to remove these two screws, then lift the entire cluster/surround straight up. You'll se that there are several "pegs" that fit into holes with sleeves in them. Not sure if the sleves are replacable, but i'd try a layer of heat shink or tape around the pegs, then re-install and try it. You should also see any wear marks where the noise is coming from. Thanks, I'll try that. I may have stumbled upon the problem. I removed the left dash speaker assembly and noticed the screw that goes through the speaker bottom into the clip was just hanging on by a couple of threads. I've tightened it up, and hopefully it eliminates the noise. Thanks again.]

I recently aquired a '97 Boxster with a std. black interior. There is excessive rattling coming from around the instrument cluster. It's especially noticable when going over a rough road. I've tried to isolate the noise, but I can't seem to track it down. I've wedged foam rubber around in spots, business cards, etc. and still no luck. I've noticed this on several other Boxster's with a black interior. Maybe just a coincidence. Does the cluster have to come out? Any suggestions would be most appreciated. Thanks. John
