  2. I wish I knew more about cars!

  3. Cool, I will give the car a check over tomorrow. I will put a bottle of fuel system cleaner through it too. Any ideas on which fault code readers are worth buying? I have seen some on ebay but am unsure what to look for? Thanks, Dave.
  4. Hi, I was out in my boxster (1998 2.5 manual) today for the first time in a few weeks. When I started the car it ran fine, however once I got on to the motorway and put the foot down a bit, the car had a kind of hiccup (maybe a misfire) at around 3500-4000 rpm and 70mph. It then ran fine for the rest of my journey (around 2 miles). On the return journey home, the same thing happened and once I was back on the normal roads driving about 40mph it kept doing this hiccup. After a further mile the car kept dropping below 500rpm and cutting out (pulling up at junctions etc). I had the MAF changed a
  5. Hi, can any one tell me how I know if my car has the hard top fitting kit installed? I want to get a hard top and collect it with the boxster! Any pics would be a help too! Cheers, Dave.
  6. If you are just looking for options - any OPC can give you printout of that. Thanks, I will check that out this weekend.
  7. Does anyone know if these are available for U.K. cars?
  8. Maurice, Thanks very much for your advice, today I lifted the rear clam and found that it was not clipped onto the runners correctly. I re-fitted these and lubricated them well. I also replaced the 2 red plastic ball-cup clips with new white ones. After I had done all this I tested the roof and found the problem was still there. I then removed the B pillar micro switch and checked it with my multi meter, I found it to be working fine, however after re-fitting the microswitch, I notice that when the hood goes up it is not making the switch. It looks as though part of the switch is missing. (
  9. Hi guys, I'm new to this site but have been trawling through all the posts and looks like a great forum! Anyway, I have a 1997 Boxster 2.5 manual (U.K. car). The problem I'm having is that my roof will not go down. I open the roof catch and the windows drop about 4" so I assume the microswitches are operating there. When I push the button on the dash I can hear the motor try to move then it almost dies out. If i pop off the joints at the back which hold the rear clam in place, then operate the rocker switch the roof will go down, and it will come back up again. It just seems to be when the
