  1. Hi, No I don't have a short shift installed - all standard.
  2. In normal driving , everyday motoring , my gear selection is fine if a little notchy when cold (normal) However when the car Is hot and I've come to a standstill (traffic, parking etc) if I go from neutral to get another gear (usually first second or reverse) if wont go in.. Feels smooth not stiff but feels like there is a flex right at the point of engaging the gear and it won't go.. Sometimes I can 'slam' it in, and others if I turn off the car it will then go in ok.. Pumping the pedal does nothing.. I've narrowed it down in my mind to three possibilities: 1) air in system - it had a new clutch a few thousand miles ago when I bought the car so think there maybe a poor bleed in there , or one of the cylinders is going? 2) gear linkage ? 3) gearbox mount - I occasionally do get a clunk so I think even if this isn't the issue - my mount may still need to be swapped.. Should say the car is 996 3.6 02 model with 72k on the clock Any thoughts would be most welcome!
  3. The metal "clam/plate" section that moves to accommodate the roof when it lowers - whatever that section is called??Well anyway - that section, it moves into it's "out of the way" position without any problems, however as it's coming back down onto the car - as it's getting pulled flush into it's final resting position, it "judders" and isn't smooth in operation.Anyone got any pointers as to what is likely to be causing this and anything I can do to resolve it?Thanks for any replies
  4. thanks for the reply.. Any ideas where to look to trace this wire? I have to conclude that there is a break in the wire somewhere. My car locks fine. I don't get an horn beeps etc and all windows close etc, but the fuel flap actuator does not fire... When I had the actuator out, I tested the wiring clip for power and found none to it when I was locking the car, and sure enough the actuator itself fires manually when off the car and tested with an old battery.. When I got the car I noticed there was just a hold on the inside of the flap where the actuator should have had it's pin sticking out, so I assumed mine was missing. However when I'd bought a replacement and went to fit it, I found that the old one was still in place, but the pin was miles out of position pushing into fresh air inside the wing. I moved it back into position and thought that would be it.. but it wouldn't fire... replaced it with a new one and it's still the same.. very odd.....
  5. My fuel flap actuator didn't work from purchase on my 2001 boxster s. Fixing it today I found the 'pin' had pushed itself totally out of alignment into a space in the wing. I'd already bought a replacement but that isn't firing either. I've manually tested the original and it works ok. Where does the wiring terminate so I can check it for snags etc?
