Welcome to RennTech.org Community, Guest
Hi Guys, I am a new member of this community and I am very happy to be here.
My name is Mathias and I just bought my very first car. I am university student so I wanted a cool, sports car and as I live in Dubai, the weather is warm so a convertible was ideal. I have therefore just bought my first car, the Porsche Boxster, 2006. As this is my first car, and I have bought it as the 3rd owner. I have a lot of questions about how I should maintain the car, and hope you guys can help😎🏎
So first of all, it’s a Porsche Boxster in a beautiful red, with a black soft top, from 2006 that has driven approx. 80,000 km.
it has a beige interior.
1) the paint inside the car has scratches and shows the black color under the beige coating. How can I fix this?
2) the speakers and radio signal is very poor and I want to be able to play music via Bluetooth and aux, is this possible?
3) is it possible to set up Cameras in the car, for parking?
4) there are scratches on the exterior, and I took it to the Porsche center, and they said they do not have a perfect match to this color as they don’t make it in this specific red anymore. Is there anything I can do?
5) the leather inside is looking a little bit worn, is it possible to fix this up?
6) lastly, is there any mods, DIY upgrades or accessories you recommend I to add to this 2006 Boxster?
X-posting from other forums as this seems to be a rare issue?
Car is 2010, C2, PDK
Has anyone had this issue?
I have read a post or two where people were just leaving things be.
Would appreciate getting any feedback on what could be the cause. I have checked the power steering fluid, and it was full.
The video is of the rack itself.
I have a big issue with my roof and windows at my 2007 2.7 987 Boxster
unfortunately most information I can find is for 986.
The roof is mecanical closed but electronic say "open" and the windows remain in "roof operation position" 4cm down
Roof is not moving anymore...
The relays S3 and S5 are already checked...so next step in the root cause analysis...
The roof motor has 2 wires. green and black.
How many sensors /microswitches are in the 987?
I can only find one, at the top.
Can anybody support with wiring diagram?
My 2002 996 coupe has a squeaking passenger seat when I push/pull the top or back part of the seat, including driving over bumps. I have half powered seats,,, the top/back is powered while the lower seat assembly is manual. The squeak happens when the top/back is in any position including up so you can access the back seats.
Something must be loose, but my question is if there are any DIY instructions that I could focus on instead of trying to tighten every bolt and hex screw that I can access. It's pretty compact down there...
Thank you in advance
Am I unlucky.. :huh: Seems that after fixing my oil level sensor, I've found that the coolant pump squeaks when the car warms up. I've localized the noise to the pump rather than the idler pulley so it is looking like I'm going to have to get it replaced. 56k miles seems awfully early for the water pump to die. :censored: Has anyone seen Porsche fix these outside of warranty (or discount?)?
Alternatively, does anyone have any experience with the DIY replacement? I've done it on my 996 (1999) so am wondering if it is more or less difficult? I've read that it is supposed to be more accessible, but the workshop manual seems to indicate removing the entire engine carrier plate on the rear of the engine.
