  1. All these years, finally lost my radio card and a radio key set! The Becker 1 is Type 4462, Ser. No. 15063894, 24/99. Where might I get a new key set, too?
  2. Thanks, Loren. I have too many numbers dancing in my head! I looked at my invoice and it has the correct number for the base, but they had pulled the S kit, marked properly, which I returned.
  3. I want to replace the retaining clips and pins on my 2001's front rotors. The rotors and pads were recently changed out, but the retainer kit I got from Sunset (very nice to deal with) had "996-352-959-01" on the invoice and package. (The clips are too big.) Pelican and AutoAtlanta have this number only. Thanks. I'm in the US, btw.
  4. ... I noticed when switching from low to high beam and back neither Litronic relevels as it should. I bounced the front end up and down thinking I might cause the leveling to act, but nothing happened. Earlier in the evening, I got flashed by an SUV of all things, so that was a clue. I pushed and wiggled the front and rear suspensions' electrical connectors and mechanical linkages, and they seem OK. They DO move with "ignition on" leveling test. (I hear the motors operating in any case.)
  5. I've gathered opinions (all reasonable) that the noise could be the sway bar drop links (retorque or replace -- they were replaced and torqued properly,) upper strut bushings/bearings/plates, lower control arms (whole assembly only, no replaceable bushings,) radiators (the noise is heat-dependent; only occurs after car is fully warmed.) Checked/damped/removed as many trunk panels as possible, checked and shimmed underbody/wheelwell panels, checked under dashboard/removed one passenger side cover panel, removed headlamp units. Damped the trunk lid and latch mechanism. Went to a good local
  6. Tomorrow I'll be having the anti-sway bar bolts retorqued. What I've noticed is the noise seems to occur when the car (2001 base Boxster, no mods) is fully warmed up. Ambient temperature doesn't seem to be a factor. Example: Took a 50 mile drive and parked on a grassy field. Lots of plonking from up front. Left a few hours later, air temperature still about the same, but the front end was quiet. Based on this, are there any other possibilities? (I also suspect the larger, central underbody panel, as I've damped/removed most everything else to no avail: Hood, panels inside trunk, battery an
  7. How does one access the swaybar bolts? I just lifted my Boxster and did not readily see them. Are they behind the plastic shielding? I did not remove the wheels. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> Thank you, Lemmy. How're things in Alphaville?
  8. 2001 base Boxster. I imagine there are up to 8: 2 pairs for the chassis brackets, 2 pairs for the links. Thanks.
  9. At approximately 10mph, over small, sharp irregularities, such as rough asphalt, or concrete slab gaps there's a noise like a Frisbee being knuckle rapped. Seems to happen after car is warmed up. Have already tapped/damped various plastic underbody panels, trunk lid, trunk panels and a cover panel under the passenger side dash to no avail. Had a very similar noise from the rear years ago. A dealer changed many suspension components (under warranty), which fixed the problem, but couldn't say what the actual cause was. I'm hoping it had to do more with tightening something, even some panel, e
  10. Thanks for the conjectures. I found in the back recess. Threads are on the outside. It's a very light gray, and it's not one of the flip-up fasteners on the carpeted engine panel. Sorry about no picture, but I'm still using a beautiful Canon F1 from way back.
