    1997 Boxster
  1. My windows have started dropping as though the release for the top has been opened when I go over a curb or rail road tracks (and in some cases normal Louisiana roads). Is there a sensor that needs to be cleaned or replaced to remedy this malady? Cheers, Vernon
  2. I trailer my boxster from Louisiana to Sports Car Repair 5711 Star Lane in Houston. Call Cliff there. They are honest, and the labor rates are very reasonable.
  3. Well my issues are resolved. To make myself feel better I am just going to assume that the pump needed to be replaced anyway, but the thing that made the biggest difference in the end was to correct my mistake. I replaced the fuse for the fuel pump, but did not re-insert the new fuse into the proper slot. Once the fuse was in the correct position the care worked beautifully. Happy motoring Vernon
  4. Well it is still not starting. I have added the DME relay in the trunk to the list of things I replaced. As best I can tell there is fuel coming to the engine. I disconnected the line going into the fuel filter and tried to start the car with a pan to catch the gas. Never got any in the pan. Is that a valid test? About to save up for the tow plus mechanic fees. Ouch!
  5. Thanks so much for your feedback. I got the panels off the bottom of the car this afternoon and didn't break any clips. I just tried a little harder after I figured out how easy they would be to replace. I do have to confess that I didn't really need to remove the panel with the 6 clips in it to get to the fuel filter. All you need to remove to get to that is the panel with about 10 10mm plastic nuts. I really appreciate the support from the forums. Cheers
  6. I'm looking for advice. I have a 1997 boxster that isnt starting anymore. The engine turns over but it sounds like it isn't getting fuel. I have replaced the fuse and the relay even though I couldn't determine the orignal ones were bad. (that part was cheap) I then bought a fuel pump and installed it my self. Getting the plastic ring off the gas tank to remove the fuel sender was a serious pain, but I made it through. I have a fuel filter, but have no idea how to get the clips off the large plastic sheet hiding it under my car. I have heard this refered to as a splash guard, under plate, and I have made up a few names for it myself. If anyone has advice on how to get the clips out without breaking them, or a cheap place to go buy the clips, I would much appreciate it. If there are any other ideas you might have about what is causing the problem, that would be appreciated as well. I have been through the guides on Pedro's http://www.pedrosgarage.com/Site_3/Replace_the_Fuel_Filter.html and Pelican's http://www.pelicanparts.com/techarticles/Boxster_Tech/04-BASICS-Fuel_Filter/04-BASICS-Fuel_Filter.htm Both sites are great, but i am just no skilled enough to close the gap between myself and the information they put together. Cheers Vernon
