  1. Sorry to hear this, it doesnt sound good and I wouldnt run any more just in case its something like an intermediate shaft bearing. i presume there are no water leaks. If it is the bearing and it hasnt completely collapsed you might be lucky, in a manner of speaking, in that it could be replaced rather more cheaply than if it fails completely . Good luck, hope it doesnt turn out to be too costly.



    Actually, there is an intermittent water leak from the water pump (barely noticeable) but I was told it was a sign the pump was on its way.


    The temperature light did not come on which would indicate a failed water pump or low water level so I didn't think it was that at first.



    Hopefully the plastic hasn't broken off the pump and caused grief somewhere else now...

  2. Hi Renntech Experts,



    Please pepper my situation with your wisdom...

    2001 Boxster S

    118,000 Kms
    LN ENGINEERING double row bearing installed 1 year ago

    last service: 105,000 kms

    minor mods e.g. pod filter and cold air intake



    A grinding noise started coming from the engine bay this morning while parking the car (warm engine, low rpm)


    I turned the car off just after it happened hoping it was nothing



    I came back 8 hours later, started the car and the noise was there from the start (recording is from inside)






    The noise changes sometimes (in a bad way), it gets higher pitched for a few rotations then goes back to normal, so maybe its a bearing.


    No noticeable change when I turn on the AC




    Please share the love if you can
