  1. Good day, I took the assembly off yesterday and cleaned up using CRC electronic spray cleaner , reassembled and map light works fine. I set the switch to low and noticed it does not turn off. Is this normal? Thanks Phil
  2. One thing I failed to mention was when I put my hand in the area of the light it does'nt come on. Or if it does its more of a flicker on off type of light. Could it be the sensor that could be causing this? Thanks
  3. I took a quick look at the light itself in the daylight and realized how complicated it was. I took off the black covers and blew air in through it with a type of keyboard cleaner, no differance. I have a Durametric tool, when things slow down I will hook up and see about the regulator. Thanks
  4. Last night my Wife and I noticed the overhead lamp at the rear view mirror would give off a stobe of light every once in a while, say ten or fifteen seconds apart . There was no timing about it at all. I figure I will take it apart and clean it up but wanted to get any input first. Thanks Phil
  5. Good day, I removed my seats to recover them and unhooked the positive battery cable first thing then without thinking closed my hood all the way down. I have a 2001 boxster base model. I tried taking the small cover off and applying positive to the little clip you pull out and nothing. I am afraid this will not work because the positive cable is off the battery. Any help would be great. Thanks Phil in Ohio.
  6. Good day, I own a 2001 boxster base model which I am in the middle of recovering the seats.I have noticed the backs have heating elements in them with the wire hook ups, the bottoms of the seats do not. That is all as far as anything concerning heated seats. How hard would it be to make the backs operationable? Thanks
  7. Good day, I own a 2001 Boxster base model with 18 inch wheels. I am looking for snow tires and rims. I found a person on E-Bay selling a set of 16 inch tires on rims off a 2002 Boxster. Are the rims compatable even though there is a year differance? Thank you for your help.Phil in Ohio
  8. Thanks for the quick response Loren, I am going to track down a rebuilt pump. Seems they have the same warranty as a new pump with a much cheaper price tag. The pump now is original with only 57000 miles on it so how much worse could a rebuilt one be.
  9. Another thing I should add is the pump itself seems to work fine with no whining or grinding sound, just a fant bearing sound going bad. No leaks and the shaft seems tight. Thanks
  10. Good day, after about a week of listening to a noise get louder I tracked it down to the power steering pulley. Not a very loud noise but for someone who prefers to listen to the engine instead of the radio I knew something was going bad. The pulley has no wabble play at all, instead when you start to spin it feels like there is small a gap at the start of the spin. Hope this makes sense. Please tell me I can pull the hub and replace the bearing and be done with it. Oh ya , not to long ago I had a tiny creek noise coming from the front right when I turned the wheel. Upper Strut bearing needed lubed. Anyhow getting back to the new project, 2001 Boxster with 57000 miles. If I need to replace this should I go rebuilt or new? Where is the best place to give my business ? I plan to do this myself, any help is appreciated.
  11. Thanks for input guys, looks like a project in the making.
  12. Good day, I believe my upper strut tower bearing is creaking when I turn the steering wheel. It is not very loud but is happening all the time now. My question is can I some how lube this thing since it is a sealed bearing and if so what type of lube would be best ? Thanks
  13. I have lloyds carpet mats that have little female clips attached to them that meet up with the male clip which is attached to the seat mount. Problem is there is only one male clip per matt. Where can I get two more male clips? Thank you
  14. Just to get back I talked to Owen at Durametric and he nailed the problem down to my 2001 Boxster has the 5.7 version ABS/DSC/PSM instead of the 5.3 version. The year the 5.3 changed to 5.7 was 2002. Thanks to everyone.
