  1. has not set their status

  2. I need to replace the clip for my windscreen between the roll bars. in order to do this i need to remove the roll bar lining. Does anyone know where i can find instructions on how to do this? thanks ibnole
  3. I have a 2000 Boxster with a CDR-220 Type 4462 where the radio display is not working. The radio works fine but just cant see the display. When i start the car sometimes you can see the display starting to come on then it goes blank. Any one tell me what the problem is and how to fix? Thanks
  4. Thanks someone else recommended the Hankook Ventus V4. Think you can get them at Sears. It would be nice to compare sometime. can contact at ibnole@comcast.net Thanks.
  5. Need recommendation on what kind of tires I should purchase. I currently have a lot of road noise coming from the rear of car. I have a 2000 Boxster 75,000 miles. Bought the car with Goodyear Eagle GT 255/40zR17. i think the noise is from tires not from bearings but not sure how to tell. Front tires are 205/50R17 so don't think i can rotate. Can anyone recommend tires that have low road noise?
  6. I just changed my plugs and my check engine light came on says P301 Misfire, Cylinder 1. Can anyone tell me which plug is cylinder 1? I have a 2000 boxster 2.7 ltr Thanks
  7. Sorry, but you need to fix the problem and then have the airbag reset. If you order the buckles and do the under seat soldering you can save a bunch of money. Many folks here have done it (try our search). Whenever you remove the steering wheel or either seat you should always disconnect the battery first AND keep the key out of the ignition. When the key is in the ignition (even off) the airbag circuit is armed. Thanks for the tip!
  8. I am a new Boxster owner. i have a 2000. can someone explaine the 986 / 987 differences? How do i tell what kind i have?
  9. I took my 2000 Boxster in to the dealer because the Airbag light was on. The dealer told me i would need to replace the belt buckle and wiring kit. The estimate for the repairs was $377. I decided not to do the repairs and asked him to reset the light. He reset it so the airbag light went off. This past weekend i was working on a horn problem and now the light is back on. Is thier a way to reset it to turn the light off without having to pay the dealer $60 to hook up the machine? Any help with be appreciated.
  10. Thanks for the hlep i will try the 5 mm socket
  11. Does anyone know where i can buy the Headlight Hex socket tool to remove my headlights for my 2000 Boxster?
  12. Thanks for the info! The web site was a big help.
  13. I have a 2000 Boxster and my driver side window has been giving me problems. When I have the top up, windows rolled up and I get out of the car the window should lower slightly when I pull the door handle however this is not happing anymore. My window still goes up and down when I am inside the car. When I close the door with windows still up the window hits the top of the window track. Any help would be appreciated.
  14. Ibnole: Once you get your hands on a micrometer, these are the specifications for the thickness of brake rotors on a Boxster (Boxter S dimensions are different): Brake rotor wear limit Front: 22 mm (0.866 in.) Rear: 18 mm (0.709 in.) By contrast, new brake rotor dimensions are: Front: 24 mm (0.944 in) Rear: 20 mm (0.787 in.) Regards, Maurice. Thanks so much!
