it is just so the grease oil and water won't get splash into the interior... tape along this area... and use some type of plastic sheeting for painting like what you can get from Home Depot... Tape that back so when water hits it it will not allow water into the interior.
What a clean motor! Do you first protect electrical part (ie alternator)? If so which one and how? Tks Chris No special precautions needed. Just spray and rinse. I'd plastic, and tape off the passenger compartment. Make sure the motor is not hot (don't want cold water on hot alternator diodes as they will be damaged) before after... sorry for the crappy cell pics
I understand not everyone is comfortable working on their cars with certain tools. I actually used the torch a lot when at the dealer. Customers hate it when their car smells of burning oil after a service. On some cars the oil filter leaks oil onto the the exhaust when the filter is removed. I clean off as much as possible then use a torch to burn off the rest. No need for the customer to wait days for the oil to burn off the exhaust. Oh and if the oil is crusted on the exhaust use a wire brush to take off what you can, I just torch the exhaust, no engine pieces.
healthservices replied to natzee's topic in DIY Articles - Boxster (986) - Common Fixes and Repairsok the connection is on the back of the airbag itself and it pulls straight back. Do not try to disconnect at the cable reel.
healthservices replied to natzee's topic in DIY Articles - Boxster (986) - Common Fixes and RepairsOk sorry to ask a stupid question but how do you unplug the airbag? is the connector at the airbag or the cable reel? How does it unclip? And yes disconnecting it is not a requirement (I just did the horn fix on my black 2000) but I need to get to the combo switch on my Silver car and the bag needs to be removed to do so....
