  1. A short but very intense rain storm a week ago was a painful but important lesson for me and all other cab owners out there. The 997 is every bit as at risk as old boxsters were to severe and expensive water damage from clogged drains. And i'm not talking about the easy to clean cowl drains adjacent the battery in the front, i'm talking about a set of completely hidden, all but unknown drains for the rear. For the 997, porsche devised a system of drip trays which run against the inner walls of the car, down into a 15mm x 250mmx400mm tray behind the driver and passenger seats (below the c
  2. I parked my 06 997 cab outside today, and we had a serious downpour. Friends came in and told me that my lights were on, but i hadn't left them on. Shortly thereafter My car started completely losing it, honking, spoiler going up and down. Brought it to the dealer, the drivers side rear carpet is soaked and there is quite a bit of water under the carpet. I've looked extensively for a cleaning proceedure for rear drains, but not found anything. I would argue that the cpo warranty is responsible to pay for the damage. Does anyone have experience with this?
  3. Its the actuator for the front trunk. My car had the exact same problem and the service manager claimed they'd never heard of such a thing. They thought it was a noisy fuel pump at first. If you need the part numbers from the RO i can get that for you.
  4. I think my dealer is just confused. They've been pretty good in general. There is no second dealer within an hour's drive. They just replaced the valve control for the driver's lumbar...which would seem to cause the problem, not sure...could just be a loose wire in that driver's side switch that is failing to activate the pump for the upper bag.. It is 3 bags, correct? Not 2?
  5. Guys; I have an 06 997 cab with memory full power and lumbar support. I had an issue with the driver's side lumbar and brought it to the dealer, who replaced the valve body under the certified warranty. However, the problem still seems to be there. When i press the four way switch forward, it inflates the main bag, when i press the back button it deflates. When i press the up, it does nothing except delflate the main bag (no compressor running) but on the passenger side, the up button slightly inflates the upper bag, and slightly deflates the lower bag (compressor does run). The dealer as
  6. Maurice; Still a work in progress. I'll go backwards 3) I followed this procedure, and it resolved the issue that i had with the windscreen and the rollbar. That said, it renewed the problem of the leading edge not coming down low enough to close properly 2) Let me say one thing first, when the top is up, the clamshell has closed properly. I tried your method, and indeed the right side was higher at 3 inches. So i used the drill to synchronize the transmissions, to two results a:i got them where they were even at 3 inches, however when the top is DOWN, the right side still doesn't
  7. Three weeks ago we broke 50f here in austin, and my back window finally gave up. I looked into stitching in a new window, but didn't think my canvas was perfect enough to justify going that route. Luckily, a local boxster lover had a gaah/robbins style replacement glass windowed top already installed on a frame that he pulled from his track car. We installed the top in his driveway the sunday before last and found it to be nothing but trouble. After getting everything installed, the top wouldn't close in the front, leaving a several inch gap. We adjusted the arm position (we'd unbolted th
