I caught a branch down a country lane and cracked the lower mirror housing. I have the work proceedure for the removal and refitting but has anyone else attempted this? I have a new one on order and it is being painted as we speak.
No Macan 'Diesel S' for you guys then.
If you are refering to a 'welcome home' type of light (removing the key or unlocking the car) these can only be changed by a dealer using PIWIS
A long shot but once the headlight is removed you can access the fog/drving lamp. If you can remove this perhaps you can get access the screw from the opening with a long extension.
Where's Gundo with all the talk of oil burning 'Smoking' cars
The test of fuel pressure is done either static ie engine not running with the fuel pump activated using the PIWIS or at idle (no need for PIWIS) either way for an 2005 Boxster S you should get 3.8 bar +/- 0.2 bar.
Not the best diagram but here goes: Assuming your car is LHD: It is under the plastic cowl above the pollen filter, there is a foam flap over the pollen filter, it is above that, slightly towards the centre of the car.
Under the plastic trim in front of the windscreen ie the one the wiper arms go through. The GPS aerial is just above the pollen filter (right hand side of car looking forward), you will have to remove the battery cover and plastic trim next to it to gain access.
The failure of the 'Clutch Interlock Switch' is becoming a more common fault. I also had this fail on my 2008 Boxster S. The good news it is a simple switch replacement and the switch went intermittent rather than totally failing so I was able to get to a dealer.
