  1. Assuming your 2004 S is a LHD car the order code is 986320 if however it is a RHD car the correct order code would be 986321
  2. 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.
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. The OP has done this, ie disconnect the battery, reconnect, ignition on but don't start for 30 seconds then start, but it wasn't successful.
  6. Just revisited the workshop manual says 3.8 for both static and idle.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. If memory serves me correctly, on a 987 it is centrally mounted below the plastic cowl in front of the windscreen.
  11. 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.
  12. Another source of the 'rattle' and sometimes put down to the heat shields is the parking brake cable being loose. This causes the brake shoes to rattle when passing over bumps at low speeds. It's very simple to confirm and fix; To confirm drive slowly over bumps and pull up the hand brake lever by a very small amount (not enough to engage the ratchet. If the rattle disappears it is the cable. To fix; the adjuster is under the tray in the centre console storage box. Park on a flat surface, release the parking brake; The are two nuts, one being a lock nut, release that; now adjust the cable so that the slack in the cable is just removed. The handbrake should still be able to be pulled up 3 clicks. Re-tighten the lock nut. The car should still moved when pushed on a single click
  13. Was there meant to be a photo? Sorry. Here goes.... http://www.photoshop.com/users/westladog/assets/5427b30749bd4499b888ba7b2a2e1787 1999 Boxster The part number is 986 504 862 01 G2X - Cover ® at $31.68 plus tax. Comes painted in primer, sorry no pre-colored options.
  14. Crazy the radio presets controlled by the seat ..... next you will be telling us the seat settings are done by the radio.;)
  15. .... and the calibration can only be done by a Porsche dealer with a PIWIS computer.
  16. It was possible to order the calipers painted red as an option under the exclusive program. You may still therefore have stock (C4) sized discs and pads on your car.
  17. Having recently exported my cars to the UK, for export purposes you will need a certificate of origin. You get this from the Porsche HQ for the receiving country. Porsche UK required the emailing of the VIN plus a scanned copy of the title document. There was also fee of around $100. The certificate was posted back to me and included: Month and year of manufacture Specification the car was manufactured to, including whether it is left or right-hand drive Which country the car was first delivered to Model year of the vehicle Original engine number Original exterior colour The US guys will say this is pretty much what is included in the US certificate of authenticity, less the build options but the format is totally different and what is expected by the import authorities.
  18. The guy who has been selling kits to Porsche owners for years (Harvey Peck) still has an ebay store, he will also send you the instructions to connect it to the amp in the front trunk: Ebay Link to Speaker Kit
  19. If you are after just the 'silver tabs' without buttons (and assuming a manual car otherwise parts different): 997 347 837 00 V04 - Left 997 347 838 00 V04 - Right
