  1. Hello does somebody knows where is vin number located in the porsche boxster s 981 ? Thank you very much
  2. Hi. I am new to this group, and new to Porsche. I would like to buy a "summer runaround" car for fun to celebrate my "big" birthday.... I'm going to be 30 for the second time! I have a budget of £5000, and there are quite a few good cars available, but I would like some advice, please: I have found a 1998 R Boxster which has had lots of work done on it, with FSH. I have found a 2001 "51" plate Boxster S, which also has lots of service history. I have found a 1999 Boxster which has history also, but has a few more signs of age, but is over £1000 cheaper. I am not a m
  3. Recommendations for good quality after market oil filter for 1997 boxster? I have ready access to: Fram, Mann, Purelator, Do I need to get any additional parts for the DIY oil change? (asside from the oil) e.g. orings, brass washers, etc... Thanks John
  4. Hello everyone, As some of you may already know, we talked about designing a waterproof case for the Alarm Immobilizer Unit in Boxsters and 996s. These units get water damaged easily if the convertible top is left open during rain, or just by the accumulation of water by the car's water drains, because Porsche installed them right on the floor of the car. The costs entailed to repair this problem can reach $1,000's easily, that's why it would be more cost effectuve to protect the CLU to begin with. Therefore, after many months of revisions and working with vendors to compl
  5. 1999 Porsche Boxster 986 shows check engine light (CEL). Code read at autozone as P0112 Error Code (Intake Air Temperature Circuit Low Input). According to <http://repairpal.com/obd-ii-code-p0112>, the error code causes could be Defective Intake Air Temperature Sensor (IAT) Dirty air filter Defective Mass Air Flow Sensor (MAF) Faulty or corroded Intake Air Temperature wiring or connection MAF: Bosch 996 606 123 00​ (serial number?:0 260 217 007) DME: Bosch 996.618.601.04 (serial number?:0 261 204 605). Lots of other numbers on DME. Can post image if required. After doing some researc
  6. 2012 Base boxster with Bose sound. Had the passenger side drain clog, with resultant water under the passenger side seat. Part of the collateral damage is now no sound from any source, i.e Radio, Aux, CD or Phone. The radio works as far as I can tell. I understand that the amp in this MY is located under the passenger seat. When I moved the seat forward to squeegee out the water, I noticed what appeared to be a slight burn mark on the carpet near the rear right hand seat rail. So, is this possibly a fuse on the stock Bose amp? If so, what type? I imagine I will have to pull the seat
  7. So I go to put the passenger window down the other day and it emits a screeching sound, both going up and down. Sounds like 'nails on a chalk board'... I haven't had the time to tear the door apart to check it out, but, am wondering if there are any 'well known' problems with the regulator or window mechanism? Would appreciate any insight... Thanks john
  8. Hey everyone, it's been a while since I've been on here. I'd like to thank everyone for their help thus far with my current Boxster fixes and issues. I am now looking at (upgrading?) to a '70 911t. I love the older styles and have wanted to get my hands on one. The one I am looking at is matching numbers, has been rebuilt, just needs a paint job. Let me know what you all think, what to be aware of/scared of, any input is great! Thanks so much
  9. I'm getting ready to put my engine back in after rebuilding it and I was wondering if I am going to need to have a rear wheel alignment done afterward. You have to take off so many brackets, braces, and supports that I'm feel like the whole procedure would throw the alignment out of whack. My problem is that my nearest Porsche shop is 50 miles away and I wouldn't want to have to drive it there with the alignment out badly. Any thoughts or advice?? Tom
  10. hello just bought a 2002 boxster 73k miles top chatters or drags while going up or down... can only operate if I keep pushing the switch and releasing it... it opens and or closes in spurts.. I have checked fuses changed top relays (twice) changed motor (three times) parking brake light is on so switch seems to be working- have greased or oiled all tracks and hinges I have not changed cables or transmissions any ideas on what to try would be greatly appreciated (ps also changed micro switch at mirror) thank you
  11. How can I identify if my 1998 Boxster head lights are LHD or RHD? The car originally is a LHD car imported to the UK. I do not know if the headlamps were changed or adjusted to work in the UK. I am shipping the car to France and before I have it MOT'd in France I need to check the headlamps so that I can avoid a failiure. Anybody know if their is a part no. or some way to idetify? You would not believe what a pain it is to sort things out in France!!!
  12. hey guys, this is my first post in hopes of coming to a conclusion, i currently have a 1998 porsche boxster with tiptronic transmission, the following problems are as follows. 1.when in parking the car doesnt stop 2.when in automatic drive car doesnt go to 3rd gear it jumps from 2nd to safe mode with a big kick 3.when left on first gear in manual mode car exhaust sound gets louder, and when letting of the gas does big kick to safe mode 4.when the car is turned on and switched to manual the tiptronic controls only lets me move up to 2nd gear. i was thinking it was the transmission ecu but
  13. need help, it is a 98 Boxster 2.5 as you see in the picture the red lined tube is the one not in diagram, the blue and green circles i dont know where they go, neither the purple, now the yellow line leads to the back and that too i dont know where it goes, thank-you :)
  14. Hey all, New the forum so hello there! Rebuilding a Carrera two and pulling some mangled-a$$ control arms off the front. They are stamped with "996.341.341.05" When I google this number all I get is european eBay listings and some random russian website. Anybody have any idea what this is? Cheap chinese knockoff control arms? I have a 99634105316 to replace it which is clearly a slightly different casting but appears dimensionally similar. I would share a photo but I am in the shop (read- my garage) right now. Cheers! Gabe J

  16. Dear Forum Users, firstly thank you in advance for any contributions, they are much appreciated. The Background; I'm coming from a low knowledge-base, though am fairly good at following instructions, I don't have enough experience to diagnose problems. I have a '99 Boxster, owned for nearly 2 years. Unitl recently this was my primary car in everyday use and worked pretty much perfectly (though I'm sure it could do with a little TLC). I recently moved to a new job with company car provided, meaning the Boxster is used much less. I've endevoured to drive it every couple of days to keep thi
  17. Hey guys, I think it's time to replace my clutch. Its been slipping pretty bad and I'm doing my best to drive it very gently or not at all. Its a 986 2.5L manual transmission. I've read up on pelican the whole DIY and parts list. I just wanted to see what clutch kit you all would suggest? Also, should I plan on replacing my flywheel? Any suggestions or words of advice would be VERY much appreciated. First time doing a clutch replacement 8)
  18. I am planning on changing my bumpers on a Porsche boxster 987 first generation. would it be possible to install second generation bumpers. are the bolts in the same position are the lines for tail lights and headlights the same???.
  19. My 1998 Boxster will not sttart. New Battery.The strarter is okay. The car would turn on.However it will not start. It does not even crank..My normal non Porsche mechanic has been piulling his hear out trying to figure things out. Any suggestions??
  20. The convertible top on my Boxster has a verticle tear close to the seam. I'd like to replace it with a Porsche part, but my local dealer quoted $3200 just for the part (labor not included). That seems outrageous, since the OEM part seems to be available on-line for less than $1000. I don't want to attempt the labor myself. Any advice is appreciated.
  21. Hi, I hope you can help. I have a 2004 (986) standard 2.7L Boxster. The last couple of days There is a loud noise when the air conditioning is running. Seems way more loud than usual - especially at idle (probably because of less engine/road noise). I think the issue is that the fan behind the front bumber is coming on when I turn the air con on. The fan seems to be on anytime the a/c is on. Is this normal. It just seems very loud and I dont think it was there a few days ago. I looked at the radiator through the vents in the bumper and there seems to be a slight layer of dust on the
  22. My convertible top stopped working on my 2004 Boxster S. After researching the possible causes I discovered that the driver-side pushrod attached to the V-lever was bent and the plastic tip broken. The passenger side pushrod appeared intact. I replaced both sides with new pushrods and tips and made sure that the length of both were exact and the same as the pushrod on the passengers side. All seemed well and the mechanism attempted to raise and lower the top but the leading edge of the top would catch on the back of the driver-side rollbar during the raise operation. I can manually free t
  23. Please help, After thoroughly searching for someone who has had this issue, I am still lost. Vehicle is a 2000 Boxster 2.7, 5 speed manual. Vehicle has factory Becker radio with tape deck. CDR 220 I believe. I have replaced the ignition switch as recommended for similar problems, but there were no changes First, the vehicle will sometimes not crank when turned to the starter position. It takes multiple turns and sometimes even locking and unlocking the vehicle before it will start (acts like clutch is not depressed when trying to start). It seems to be happening more often and I am
  24. hi any member know where i can download a workshop manual for my 2.5 2000 boxster cheers all dave [not owners man]
  25. My Water Pump was leaking coolant on my 1998 Boxster, so I decided to replace the water pump gasket. After removing all the components described in Wayne's Technical Article of Water Pump and Thermostat Replacement, I came across one unforgiving bolt on the Water Pump that would not budge. The 10mm flexhead would not grip the very top bolt. I noticed that the pulley for the water pump was almost touching the bolt. On further inspection I found that the pulley had actually shirred the bolt head and and rubbed off 3 of the points of the bolt head making it impossible to take off with the requi
