Be very careful guys, this is the exact type of behavior that Porsche has frowned upon in the past, and have gone ballistic on the perpetrators of to protect what they see as their intellectual property....................

I've always wondered how they would tolerate the information being disseminated for so long.

Why wouldn't Porsche go after the source that distribute this info (grey market or otherwise)?

Certainly the manuals are a source of income for them and they would want to control that aspect, but they can't prevent an owner or business from dissecting their vehicles and writing about them on their own.

Example: http://www.pelicanpa..._MANUAL_pg2.htm $1500 for a set of manuals.

There is somewhat of a void currently for aftermarket literature on the newer models and I think Bentley and Pelican are about the only few who have written step by step pictorials other than the official manuals (and do a much better job of it than the OE docs).

Additionally, you look at this board and other places and they are littered with quotes, images, or snips of figures from manuals or otherwise (sanctioned by the people who run the various forums).

And there are loads of info "declassified" available for download here and elsewhere.

JMO, but I would see them being more concerned these days with sharing information about their software and protecting information about newer models, but I'm certainly not condoning piracy or distributing this information without Porsche's consent.

(thread closure imminent! :))

      I'm new to the Porsche family.... Just over a month and the proud owner of a 1999 Boxster.  It's a project car but still on the road and my point to point ride.  Must say, LOVE to drive this car....This one has  been lowered some, well alot... and does it hug the road..... Just doesn't miss much being that low....  My question is, I am having an issue with the rear lights on this car...  I know I had a problem with the left rear brake light.  I tried tracing back the wire but found no problem... I then switched the lamp holder from the right side to the left and all the lights worked... So I thought I had an equipment issue.  I bought a (Porsche) replacement bulb holder.  Came in last night.  Changed out today...Guess what????  Turn indicators work, Backup lights work,  Brake light works on the Right Side ONLY, (still) Now no rear tail lights what so ever......I have checked ALL the fuses, only had to replace one and it had nothing to do with the lights.  NOTHING has changed....Where did my tail lights go??????  Can't figure this out.......Please help.......Just FYI,  ALL the LIGHTS were working as of last Wed. when I did the bulb holder swap and checking the lights.  Power is to both wire harnesses.   Everything else works except the left brake light and the drive lights.  Go figure.......

      Hello-
       
      I'm new to this website. Here is a  question:
       
      I have a 1998 Boxster 2.5 Tiptronic. I just had a new key programmed at dealership ( the old key fob newer worked). With new key fob, all doors  (including gas) lock and unlock appropriately. However, when pressing the button to open the rear trunk lid, the lid doesn't move and the rear lock actuator/solenoid is silent.   I disconnected the actuator from the car (separating the plastic connector) and using a 9v battery, made the actuator ( and lock) open and close. So I believe the problem is not the actuator. I also connected a volt meter to the two wires that connect from the car to the actuator,  then pressed the fob button, and no voltage was recorded. However, the red light on the fob and the red light on the dash near the windshield did light up 
       
      So i believe the problem lies in the electrical system somewhere between the actuator and the fob. Any ideas on how to test the wiring running from the trunk lock actuator to the CLU? immobilizer? or wherever it goes?   Or should I be spending my time evaluating the CLU? immobilizer? ??
       
      Thanks for any advise!

      I am missing the shift knob insert to my Boxster S 6 speed and cannot find a replacement anywhere without having to buy a whole new shifter... Does anyone
      have one they would like to donate or sale? Or does anyone have any ideas on how to get one. Its just the insert that fits on top of the shifter Reverse through 6th...
      Or does anyone have any ideas on how to make one? I am at a loss and it looks raty without the insert..... 
       
      Thanks in Advance!

      Boxster 2003 window on passenger side will not drop to open the door with either inside or outside handle.  I replaced the micro switch from the outside handle to no effect.  Windows drop with unlocking top.  Driver door works normally.  Inside window switch works with no noises from regulator.

      Hi all,I know that there has been a lot of talk regarding fitting rear speakers to a 981 Boxster . I have a 2014 GTS with sound system plus and I am very keen to add speakers behind the seats to fill in the sound. Is there a way of either enabling the fader on the PCM and then wiring the rear speakers to the amplifier under the seat ? Alternatively,connecting the rear speakers with a resistor of 16 ohms in parallel with the front speakers?
