Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Can anyone help me,

i have 2003 facelift boxster with the glass heated rear screen,

i have recently purchased a original porsche hartop from ebay in fantastic like new condition,

i have fitted a genuine porsche fitting kit to my car and now have to hardtop on which looks great, the only problem i have is the rear heated scrren, i dont know how to get it working, is there a wire that should be connected to the hardtop if so i cant see any plug in points on the top,

Any help and advice would be most grateful

You have to plug the dangling connector that is hanging from the underside of the driver's side rear of the hardtop to the receptacle that is located near where the rollbar goes past the level of the convertible top well.

Here's a photo of the driver's side convertible top base and well to show you where it's located (click on the photo to blow it up):

Pull up on that little tab indicated by the red arrow and you will thus lift the little cover that protects the receptacle. You can then plug in the connector into the receptacle, it will only fit one way. Make sure you route the wire from the connector in such a way that it does not get pinched or have excessive tension on it.

Maurice

many thanks for your post,

i think there may be the lead from the hardtop missing , there is nothing hanging from the top and no wires that i can see, i will take the top off again and have a look if there are any hidden anywhere.

cheers

I just realized you are in the UK. Where I refer to driver's side in the above post, I am talking about the left side of the car.

Maybe the previous owner of the hardtop tied up the wire and connector so that it would not get damaged during installation.

Regards, Maurice.
