  1. Upon further investigation found replacemnt part on line. Looks like an easy fix. https://www.amazon.com/Boxster-Convertible-Soft-Joint-Repair/dp/B07ZG2VV2F/ref=sr_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=Porsche+986+987+Boxster+Convertible+Soft+Top+Push+Rod+Ball+Joint+OEM+Repair+Kit&qid=1589230397&sr=8-2
  2. 2011 Boxster S Yesterday as I was opening my top I heard a pop. Now the top does not close properly. Further investigation shows the threaded nylon bushing at the end of the pushrod that raises the top on the driver side snapped. Has anyone every replaced this and is there any info on the procedure to do this? I looked at Sunset website and don’t know if I’m looking for the push rod or control rod which are different part numbers.
  3. On my 2011 Boxster S the clock and speedo stay on for a few minutes before turning off. Also the entire electrical system goes to sleep (meaning the remote of the trunk and hood release are inoperative) if I don't use the car after about 5 days. To wake up the electrical system I just open the door. I understand this is to prevent battery drain.
  4. I really get a sense of reward when I do things in my garage rather than just pay a shop to do it. However I'm curious as to what a typical shop would charge for this service?
  5. For those of you following this email string and want to be more informed on the failure issues and fixes for the IMS bearing I found the attached video by Pedro very informative:
  6. I have a 2011 Boxster S and below is what I use.

  7. Thank you. Picture is worth a thousand words. Is it ok to reconnect without replacing O ring when flushing system?
  8. 2011 Boxster S Does anyone have experience removing and replacing the attached hose clamp shown below. This type of clamp is not shown in the Bentley Service Manual or the one from Pelican. Was getting ready to flush coolant system and never saw this type of clamp for the radiator hose. Is it easy to remove and replace?
  9. Thanks for the feedback. I learned something new. After a little research I learned that there is a difference between a Float and Trickle Charger. I have a Ctek model charger which is classified as a Float charger.
  10. If I also convert to an AGM battery will my existing Trickle Charger work? I thought I read in the past that charging this type of battery is different. Am I correct?
  11. http://www.porscheatlantaperimeterparts.com/productSearch.aspx?searchTerm=99761310950 Don't know if this is your problem but had a similar problem with a 2011 Boxster and it tuned out to be the clutch safety switch. Sometimes I could start and sometime I couldn't. There is a lot of threads on the internet about this problem for the 2009 Boxster.
  12. 2011 Boxster S Thought I would pass around that Interstate MTP-94R/H7 is an exact replacement for Porsche Battery 999.611.080.20. See photo below. I purchase the battery at local parts store. List price is $210.95. Initially quoted $169 but purchased at $148.90 after asking parts person if that is the best price he could give me. It has a 3 year free replacement warranty anywhere in the US. I plugged in a battery maintainer while changing and I kept all settings. When first started I had a PCM failure but everything reset after a few feet of driving.
  13. Thanks I purchased the airlift and I now feel comfortable to proceed.
  14. Thank you JFP for your detailed reply. Looking at the Bentley Service Manual I should be able to remove the splash shield, remove the drain plug and drain the coolant by supporting the car on jack stands in my garage. However, I'm not sure my compressor is going to have enough capacity to maintain 90 psi. Was wondering if anyone could comment if they used a 6 gallon compressor like mine to change the antifreeze?
  15. 2011 Boxster S https://www.ecstuning.com/News/Schwaben_Cooling_Maintenance_Tools/?utm_source=emailcampaign&utm_medium=email&utm_content=retail&utm_campaign=Schwaben_Cooling_Tools_0127201 In the above video it states to first drain all coolant from the system before proceeding. A few questions are below. What is the best way to drain the coolant on a Boxster? Can I do this with a 6 gallon Porter Cable Pancake Compressor? What should I set the pressure to? Or turn the compressor off and just use 6 gallon air volume in tank? How much anti freeze should i mix up in a 5 gallon bucket?
