  1. Thank you for the follow up JFP. It happened again at Sebring this past weekend - the amount of grease was quite small. I am replacing my rear wheel bearings so while I have the axle off I will repack the joints and install new boots. I am thinking of using the Redline CV-2 grease. Thanks! Steve
  2. To bump up this older thread, I just noticed the same thing earlier this week when I took my wheels off to clean them and do a brake bleed and noticed some grease on my wheel behind the center cap. Interestingly, the wheel with the grease was from the passenger side of the car, but the grease on the end of the axle was on the driver side. That wheel was bone dry, as was the rear wheels from the 2 other sets of wheels I run from time to time. The wheel that had the grease got moved to the passenger side after a track weekend last October at Roebling Road when I flipped my Hankook R-S3 tires on the rim and moved them to the other side. So if the grease was ejected from the axle, it appeared to have happened before I moved the wheels, presumably at that track day? Factors that may have caused that wheel area to heat up more than normal could be that I picked up a fair amount of speed since my last time there, running laps in the 1:29.x range which was 2 seconds faster than my previous best, and I also had a huge spin that weekend that may have caused things to heat up? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ZVgcA7ui7c I also have TC on my Boxster (2000 S) and I wonder if the TC was going off and braking that left rear wheel and heating it up? Any follow up on this issue - Eric was your car OK and /or did this issue happen again? Thanks, Steve Edit: I have not crawled under there to see if there is any grease coming out of the back side - I will do it this weekend and inspect the CV Boot and see if I can determine whether it is low on grease and needs some added.
  3. I have been fighting with a hard to open front trunk on my 2000 Boxster S. Last week the Bowden cable snapped about an inch from the lever when I pulled the handle to open the front trunk. I have got a new cable assembly, and I have got the hood latch off and the handles inside the cockpit off, but I have been unable to find a procedure on how to replace the whole Bowden cable (part #11 on this diagram: http://www.autoatlanta.com/porsche-parts/hardparts.php?dir=986-97-04&section=803-00 on the "up to year 00" line, part # 99651101701) I have got the Bentley manual, the 101Projects book, and even a CD I bought with a bunch of service manuals in PDF format, but I have been unable to find a procedure to replace this cable. Does anyone know what all I have to take off in order to gain access, and from what side I install the cable? Thanks! Steve
  4. What settings do you pick in durametric to track these oxygen sensor value? There are a couple of categories of O2 values and I'm not sure which one. Also did you have to take screenshots or does the tool automatically save logs of your values? I am troubleshooting a P430 and this would be very helpful. Thanks! Steve Eidt: oh wow this is an old thread :)
  5. Thank you JFP, sounds like I need to get under my car to see which configuration I have. I am kind of hoping I have the sensor after the big cat, because I have a line on one of those at a good price :)
  6. I am troubleshooting a P0430 right now on a 2000 Boxster S. From the Bentley manual I thought that 2000-2004 had the O2 sensors before and after the header cat (26 & 27 in the pic above), with no sensor after the main big cat that is closer to the tailpipe. I have seen several vendors that state that you can remove the big cat with no CEL because there is no monitoring after that cat. I thought that the 97-99 were the only ones that had an O2 sensor after the big cat (since that was the only cat they had, they would have 25 & 27 in the pic above). I had a line on a replacement big cat but I told that person never mind because I thought I needed the header cat. I have never looked under the car so I am only basing from what I have read, but I feel like Papa Klump: I'm confused.
