That's okay. I usually check my blind spots when I change lanes. But somehow, someone manages to be on my left side after I look. Looking in the mirror will be a secondary precaution. I've had them in my BMWs. Check this site http://www.toolworks.com/bilofsky/boxster/mirrors.html. It talks about aspheric mirrors for boxsters though, but, they all do the same thing.
Hello, Does anybody have instructions on how to remove the Driverside Outside Rear View Mirror?:help: I just came back from Europe and bought one of those aspheric mirrors. I've had four near misses when changing lanes (left) :( since owning the car in June and this mirror should be a big help. Thanks for you help. I have an 06 997S Coupe.
beamer replied to mbkisler's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)I prefer all-weather mats. I ordered a set from Lloyds called rubbertite http://www.lloydmats.com/rubbertite.htm. They're custom cut and fit perfectly. :thumbup:
Well, I kept trying the process on and off between last Friday and this past Monday morning. Lo and behold, by noon on Monday, the driver side window was acting properly. No matter how I played with it, the window closed or opended all the way using the one-touch click. I guess you have to reinforce the training... :jump: Ha. My driver's side window appears to be working now. I'll keep 'reinforcing' the passenger window and see if I can get it properly trained! Good to hear that. Just keep training it until it gets it...

Got it. WIll try it again this evening... :unsure:
Okay, but do you hold the switch on the first stage (first click) or second stage (second click - on-touch operation)? Thanks
Sorry I didn't. :( But will do this afternoon when I get home. However, I will not remove the door panel and mess things up. The car is almost two months old and I would rather have the dealer do that, if necessary. I will let you know what happens. Thanks for you help... :) Hi Loren, The window (driver side) acted up again; this time I tired your process. I held (10 sec) the switch both up and down from the second stage. This didn't work; the window would go up with one touch then come right back down just as it reaches the top. So this time I held the switch for 10 sec from the first stage. This seemed to work. Do you hold the switch for 10 seconds on the first stage or second stage? If I can't fix this for good, then a trip to my trusty dealer may be coming. Thanks again for your help.

Thanks Loren, but I think this is different from what is happening to my diver side window. As a matter of fact, it happened again this afternoon. I pressed the rocker switch up to the second stage to activate the one touch close. The window started to travel to the closed position, but about over half way, it decided to reverse its travel to the open position. After the window stopped, I pressed the rocker switch up again to the second stage but this time it did not move automatically up. I had to hold the rocker switch up to the second stage in order too close the window. The strange thing is the window now closes and opens fine with the one-touch operation after driving a few miles... :drive:
Hi All,:) Does anyone think this is normal? On occasions, my driverside window will reverse its movement, usually half way of the travel, for no reason at all.:( This happens when when I flip the window switch to its second notch to activate the auto open or close. As for the passenger side, have not seen it happened. Thanks for your input... 2006 997 C2S Coupe Manual stick
