  1. I have a 97 Boxster and have changed the trans cables and top goes up and down ok but the top light stays on on the dash. Any suggestions? Maybe a switch is not closing somewhere?
  2. I'm not sure of the offsets buy thats what the seller told me. If they are the stock 996 17 in wheels they all should be the same standard offset, shouldn't they? Thanks for the info. Steve
  3. I'm looking at a set of factory 996 wheels for my 97 boxster, will they fit? They are 17x7, 17x9, offset 55mm, bolt pattern 5x130, tires 205/50, 255/40. Will I need spacers or make room in wheel well? Can they just bolt on and go? Any info will help Thanks Steve
  4. Thanks ToolPants, I will invest in a service and maint. manual as well as a parts manual. Thanks again Steve
  5. I need another part number to buy replacements to repair my 97 Boxster conv top. I need the part numbers for both(drivers side and Passengers side) transmissions. I know that the replacement transmissions for the conv top drives have different part numbers. Which number goes on which side? I want to upgrade from the original half gear trannys. Anybody with info will help. Thanks Steve
  6. Tool Pants, Whats the name of the Parts dealer in Cal? I couldn't find Porsche parts in Ontario, Cal. when I did a search. Thanks
  7. I need to synchronize my transmissions for my Boxster top. I had fixed one cable but can't get both sides if the top to be the same. I then snapped the Transmission lever that pushes the arms to raise the top. Tool Pants helped me with a part number and I bought the replacement today. The Porsche dealer said that the only way to Synchronize the two top transmissions is by the Computer. I guess there are about 7 points the computer looks at during the up and down of the top. Has anyone tried to do this at home without the computer. I tried spinning the cables by a drill to line up the by sight but not good enough. Any one who knows about this let me know. Thanks Steve
  8. :clapping: Thanks for the part number.....Is there a web site I can access all Boxster parts for numbers and picture? Thanks again Steve
  9. I don't have a Boxster parts cat. and need a part number. Does anyone know what the part number is for a 97 boxster conv top transmission lever arm that rotates and pushes the top up and down. This lever is bolted to the transmission and is approx 7 in long. it has mounting points at each end and pushes the arms up and down when operating he top. It is on the passengers side and it broke in half under pressure during operation. If anyone has this part number, I need it to order another. Thanks Steve Cape Cod, Ma.
  10. 1997 Boxster with 72,000 mi. Always serviced at dealer. Had 60k service, Do I still have to worry about the Engine failure that some older Boxsters had? The car runs great, no leaks. With this millage am I past the failure time? Can I just expect the normal engine wear? I had a 911 3.0 SC and it was bullet proof. Drove the hell out of it (150kmi) with no major problems. I hope the Boxster can match or even get close. Please let me know what to look for.....
