    1998 Boxster
  1. I have a 98 Boxster. When I removed my steering wheel to install a 4-stalk (for Cruise control and OBC) the airbag clock spring went "sproing" and unwound. I tried to follow the instructions printed on in, which basicaly said to wind it all the way one way, and then back off some number of turns and align the arrows. My problem is that I could never get the thing to stop winding. It didn't move very smoothly. I ended up putting it in the middle somewhere and reinstalling. All was find for a week, but last night it suddently started clicking and this morning the steering wheel bound up backing out of the driveway. I continued the turn, and it must have broken inside. The steering is great now, but no horn and the airbag light is on. I ordered a new part, but wanted to get some advice on installation. Has anyone installed a new one? Will it come already in the centered position? After last time I don't really want to break it, this was a $245 mistake for me. I've heard people tape them to keep it from moving, but how can you get the tape off when the steering wheel is installed? The little tabs on the old unit were half gone - but I'm not sure what they do anyway. Those little tabs can't be what moves the spring? They have little "forks" on the ends - why? Here are the forks: Thanks for any help, dave
  2. I'm looking to add a 6 channel Haes amp (not DSP) to my 1998 Boxster and I'm looking for the mating connector.
  3. THANKS! What a great document. Someone should post it in the DIY section. YAY I'm gonna have Cruise Control :)
  4. I am gathering parts to add OEM cruise control to my MY98 Boxster. I found this old post which is helpful. The OP described writing a DIY guide but it doesn't look like it was ever completed? If anyone can add anything to help I'd appreciate it!
