How to raise rear window in Cab when top is down

Recommended Posts

I may be the last person on earth to find this out, but just in case.... If you want the little rear windows up along with the front ones when the top is down, just press your finger in the hole where the latch fits on top of the windshield while pressing the rear window buttons. DUH! (Looks a lot "cooler" that way.) Someone please tell me they didn't know this before :rolleyes:

Also a FYI for you guys our car has a motion detector.. when the top is down and you lock the car with the remote the motion detector inside is diabled. If you get out of the car reach over and hold that same switch up as you arm the alarm it will trick into thinking the top is closed and it will arm the motion detector. I dont understand why they would disable this feature when the top is down.. probably don't want to deal with people bringing there cars in for false alarms...

PS The windows still hold up at 120mph :)

Hey this is why you have to own both a Boxster S and a 911...



Genuine Boxster Red Clip

The "red clip" fits on top of the windscreen where the cabrio top hook latches. The clip disables the cabrio top to prevent damages if you activate the cabrio top when the cover is installed. Finally, the clip turns the alarm's internal motion sensor on when the top is down. Fits all Boxsters.

How very strange.

Here in the UK, the motion detector, imobiliser and the alarm are

all turned on when the car is locked with the key fob. At least it

is in my car. This is true regardless of the tops up or down position.

Oh yes, and the key fob also allows us to put the top up or down remotely too.

Why do you guys in the states always have to break everything ;)
