  1. I am looking into installing a 5 point harness on a tuner seat in my 2003. I would like to leave the OEM seatbelt intact. I have a Sparco Fighter seat. I am looking for lessons learned on lap and front attach point. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  2. I am thinking of changing out the clutch master cylinder? Any thoughts.

  4. I followed Bentley's recommendation and press the clutch pedal all the way down prior to start of bleeding.
  5. Looking for your help? I just did a complete clutch replacement on my 2003 Boxster. After getting the engine and transmission in and completely bleeding the clutch hydraulics 3 time, my clutch pedal sticks after depressing especially at higher rpms. Did something else break in the process? Thank you for your responses.
  6. I have a similar issue on my 2003 Boxster. The spoiler operates normally (up and down) at speed but the rear spoiler light comes on instrument cluster around 77 and does not turn off until the car is off. When I turn the car back on the rear spoiler light in the instrument cluster no longer comes on until I get to speed again. I also am not able to raise the spoiler manually using the footwell switch. Fuses and relays are all good. If this is a microswitch problem, where are these located on the Boxster?
  7. I was reading through this forum string and was not able to find answers to a few specific questions I have below. I hope you can help. I have 2003 Boxter (manual tranny) and recently experienced the instrument cluster warning light about spoiler not operating as I was hitting spoiler up speeds. I am also not able to raise or lower the speed using the manual switch in the fuse box in the foot well. Here is what I have checked. 1. D7 (15amp) fuse is good. Replaced with another fuse and no action 2. Swapped relays 3 and 9 in rear trunk and still no action 3. Replaced relays 3 and 9 in rear trunk with new and still no action. I will not be able to check the spoiler motor since I cannot get the spoiler cover off for removal of the assembly in the trunk. Are there any other checks that I should do? How do I get access to the motor if I cannot remove the cover (spoiler cannot be raised to loosen the cover)? Your help and input is appreciated.
  8. If you have a recommendation for an experienced Porsche mechanic (non dealer) or shop in Houston, Texas, please pass it on. I am looking for shop to take my 2003 Boxster for Service and repairs. Thank you.
  9. Loren, Excuse my ignorance but where is the tow hook in a boxster? I have been afraid of a breakdown and not knowing where the tow hook is for the tow truck driver to not destroy my car. Mark.
  10. Maurice, I would also be interested in your instructions on lubricating the mechanisms for the 986 convertible top. Your adjustment tips were right on. Thanks for your help, Mark
  11. Mark: If there is nothing wrong with your seals, you can reposition the leading edge of the convertible top a little further forward by making adjustments to the length of the front pushrods at the V-levers. Fine adjustment can be made by unscrewing (one turn at a time) the plastic ball cup on the forward end of each pushrod, and gross adjustment can be made by loosening the 10mm bolt with fat washer and then lengthening the pushrod by pulling the two sections of it slightly apart and then re-tightening the bolt. Locating the final position of the leading edge of the top a little further forward and thus getting a "snugger" fit may stop the leaks. Regards, Maurice. Maurice, Thank you very much for taking the time to reply. So that I know exactly what parts you are referring to I have attached a diagram of the top mechanism from the Bentley Boxster Manual. Please if you would put in the part numbers in your reply above so I know what to look for when I make the adjustments. I believe this will help others who may also want to make this adjustment in the future. Best Regards, Mark Maurice, Thank you very much for your detailed and insightful answers. I will be trying some of them out this weekend. Will let you know what I find. Thanks again, Mark

  13. I own a 2003 Boxster, manual transmission. In recent heavy rains in the Houston area, I have notices a leak around my dome light next to the windshield frame. I have checked the seals around the top of the windshield frame and the corresponding one on the convertible top front. They all look good with no cracks or tears. They are still pliable and soft. The latch closes properly and the top opens and closes with no problems. When the car is standing or moving in rain it leaks drops from the front interface of the windshield frame and the convertible top. I appreciate your ideas or suggestions. Thanks, Mark.
  14. I am also getting DTC P1101 + P0455 together. Any relationship. Car (2003 986) is running fine. I checked the gas cap and is on tight. Any ideas or suggestions?
