  1. it's the micro switch on the lock mechanism, the bottom of the part that acctually laches and hold the door closed, it wears out and prevents it from pressing the micro switch when the door is open. let me know if you need pictures i can take some if you want i have a lock from a previos swap. no need for replacement just take the lock mechanism out, locate the switch at the bottom take it out. make the mounting holes a bit biger towards the top so the switch is closer to the actuating part of the mechanism and add some JB Weld let it set for 24 hrs and you are good to go.
  2. http://www.jcwhitney.com/r-134a-super-seal-kit/p2002857.jcwx?filterid=c2288u0j1 try this one i had an evap leak about two years ago just follow the instructions, still works. They sell it at Autozone too!!
  3. Right on the money!!! Replaced CPS and it now starts every time. Thank You JFP.
  4. 2001 Boxster 39,478 miles weekend car only. Boxster will start right up, no puff of smoke, no idel problems. COMPLETELY NORMAL. Drives fine no rattle missfire. Go to store come out. WON'T START.... Crank it once. (ENGINE TURNS NO START).. Crank it again..(ENGINE TURNS NO START) THIRD TIME ( STRUGGLES A LITTLE BIT, BUT STARTS AND RUNS FINE) ..... Go home and park it. Next Sunday ALL OVER AGAIN but this time when I when I get home try to start and it won't start until the 3rd time. Had to go out of town for 2 weeks come back. AGAIN SAME THING. NO CHECK ENGINE CODES, THE WEIRD THING IS THAT
  5. Let me start by saying that tomorrow morning will be a sad sad day, as I will be parting from my first Porsche that I bought when i was just 17 years old. Never thought this day would come. with that said here is a link to the manual that has help me so much and hope that someone will use and help out. Thank YOU!!! You will be miss......
  6. if you are doing it to clear an ECL make sure there are no other issues with the car.
  7. Check out Pedrosgarage.com very helpful for bleeding the cooling system.
  8. The crack in the oil filler hose was causing the CEL to show a rich condition, found the whole patch it up with air conditioning insulation tape similar to this http://shop.corvettecentral.com/1963-96-Corvette-Air/C2-1963-1967/HeatingAir-Conditioning/-p7265745.html and then aluminum tape on top of that for heat protection ( make sure to overlap). The insulation tape worked great since it is stiky and flexible you can really work it between the ridges on the elbow of the oil filler house. It's not an expensive part but I had all the materials left over from an other project. The important thi
  9. Yes, I remeber getting that letter from Porsche. I think I still have it!!! jajajajaja
  10. There is a wire lach under the passager headlight, accessed throught the wheel well cover. This happend to me a few months ago, I called the dealership and told me that the lach was under the drivers side (your might be) and after not finding one i decided to take a look under the passager side. Sure it was there just pull it with a pair of pliers and that's it
  12. I'm happy to inform you that I was right. The door lock mechanism for 97 boxster and 00 01 Passat are the same. Just finished the installation and I saved $$$$. I was able to pick up a used one for $45 bucks. If you want it new it's 150 from VW. any questions on the Tumbler feel free to ask.
  13. I think that the door lock mechanism for the 97 Boxster interchanges with one from the VW Passat PN. 3B1837015E I'll keep everyone posted on this one specially since Porsche wants $400 and VW wants $150
