  1. My center LCD display's bulb went out and I'm looking to replace the bulb. Does anyone know where I can get the bulb ? BTw, the LCD works, its just not iluminated. I see whe forcing my eyes hardly to focus the digital speedo. The car is a 98 boxster.
  2. What illuminates the center LCD isn't doing so now. Is this a bulb that needs to be replaced ?
  3. Does anyone know the part # for the LEDs or where I can find the same ones ??? Also, how difficult is this to replace other than knowing how to solder ??? Thanks and have a great Thanksgiving DAY!!!!
  4. I just changed my ignition lock and happened to lose the digital speedo in the middle. Also, there are a few other things I want to fix. First, I have a bird in my window, its squeaks, clutch pedal sounds like a wooden door, and the unlocking and locking of the car sound like my car has loaded twin AK-47 and is ready to shoot. Attached are the pictures and videos of the problems mentioned. Can anyone help me resolve this issues? Windows Squeak, Door Lock, and the clutch pedal,
  5. I'm no certified mechanic but when I changed my engine mount, the engine dropped or inclined downward. Unbolt the main engine mount and hold the engine with a hydraulic jack. Make sure it well supported, you don't want it falling on you and not enjoy your S/C !!!!
  6. Thanks, I replaced the battery(actually my dad did) with a crappy -3000watt I guess from pepboys but he insists its ok. I have never aligned the car since I got it, and the cold start, I forgot to mention, I cleaned the throttle body. The sound the car makes is the same as the one it does when the throttle body is disconected and doesn't start. Hope fixing them resolves it for ever.
  7. First of all, I own a 1998 Boxster Blue metallic or whatever it is blue green and purple. Second, I changed the engine mount, brake pads, serpentine belt, brake pads, and rwl tires. Third the cars pedals vibrate a bit, sometimes and sometimes it doesn't. Fourth, I hear a ticking sound coming from the passenger dash side stationary or on the move. Fifth, The steering wheel vibrates a bit. Sixth, There is a ballish sound coming from the soft top area, not the rear control arms. And finally the most recent prob. When starting cold, the car hesitates to start. I also noticed, that when accelerati
  8. It does sound like its coming from the exhaust
  9. I als owant to add that I cleane dthe throttle body
  10. I own a 98 Box and just replaced the engine mount, serpentine belt, spark plugs and brakes. Before I did all of this I had this anoyinh little noise coming from the back everytime I went through rough roads, speed bump, or hole(small ones). I highly doubt its the rear control arm, when I turn it makes no noise at all, its not spead dependant and I can hear it everyt ime I go through something rough as I mentioned before. This weekend I'll jack the car from the end, remove the rear wheels and tap the suspension with a rubber mallet. Any suggestions as to what is happening? Also, my dad decided
  11. Video or sound clip PLEASEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  12. PLATINUM IR FUSION Part Number 4503 Its says on the bosch site that they will fit my box but I want to know the benefits of irtridirudirudifium plugs vs oem other than what says on the site.
  13. Good to know, almost everyone I asked after the post said the same thing, it messes up their electrical stuff. I don't plan on using the car for extreme racing but would like some street/track improvements. Thanks for the info!!!
  14. I really don't know much about this so this is why I'm asking!!! What does a MSD CD or digital, which ever model do to the engine? And how does it benefit it ? I've read the claims made by the manufacturer but want other opinions on the matter. Is this a worthy investment? What purpose does it have? Can it be used with my Boxster and would I need this (Tach Adapter (Cars with Magnetic Pickup Distributor))? Just want to get informed
