i have an issue with my turn signals flashing fast when the turn Signal stalk is either right or left position. However my hazard lights flash at a normal pace? Does this mean I have an issue with the turn Signal stalk? I've read that the Hazard Flasher button on these cars is on the same circuit. All my turn signals and bulbs are working. Car is a 2001 Turbo.

2001 Boxster S, 3 spoke Steering Wheel.
I'm trying to remove the Airbag to fix a Horn problem. To do the OBC mod you might also need to remove the wheel for some methods.So this issue may have a broader appeal?
The removal Procedure seems simple - Bentley Sect 69-10 has details
I slackened the two T30 x m6, 10,5 ( # 99907318302 ) screws at the back of the Steering Wheel.They were very stiff to start with ,then became easier.I did not use a soldering iron to soften the Loctite on these two T30 screws.Despite many rotations, the screws are still firmly attached to the plate/Retaining Frame with no indication of "letting go".
According to Pelican and at least 1 video there is no need to totally remove either of the two screws - just slacken them. The 2 screws seem to be held captive in the Retaining Frame when they have disconnected from the Airbag assy.
But both screws just spin endlessly and still seem firmly connected to the plate. I assume they are cross threaded in the large plate behind the Steering Wheel(the one held by 4 bolts).
I have tried a wedge between the airbag and the Steering wheel while spinning the screw with a cordless drill. No result.
The remaining option to extract the 2 screws is to drill off the screw heads. This is very difficult because both are recessed and obstructed by the wheel and instrument binnacle !
Does anyone have a less brutal method of removing the airbag with 2 cross-threaded screws ?It is too late to try softening the Loctite now !
I checked lots of other Posts on the airbag/Steering Wheel removal subject but did not find any other examples of this problem. Some have stripped the internal flutes of the Torx head but no cross-threading that I found.
Thank you for any suggestions.
BTW, this was an interesting related link that I seldom see quoted- great photos:
I am wiring indicators, horn and brights (for flash) to an OMP steering wheel hub with buttons to my 2012 997.2 GTS. I need the wire diagram of the indicators and brights on the steering column so I know which wires to tap (horn is done already).
Does anyone have this diagram or know where I can find it?
Edit: Looks like i need the wire diagram for these two specific parts,1 and 3 in the embedded image. 3 is the switch would probably be the one I want. 1 is the control unit and would be helpful to have but redundant if I have 3 and I probably need 3 anyway in order to test any wiring done on 1.

I want to add the OBC functionality to my MY1999 manual C2 and have been gathering information in preparation, mainly from this great forum. I still have a couple of queries..
I'm aware that I need the OBC enabled at a dealer or similar first, which ever route I go.
I understand the 'one-button' hack and how to install that, probably in a spare dash position.
I was though thinking of replacing my two-stalk indicator assembly with a suitable three-stalk one. If I do this, is it simply plug'n'play, or do I still have to hack into the dash connectors?
On a recent visit to my OPC, I asked them to enable the OBC, so I could at least have the temperature displayed. They said that this was only possible on certain cars, and even then only on certain instrument clusters, looked at my car and said it wasn't possible..
Anyone heard of this? I thought it was possible on all pre-2001 cars with air-con (external temp sensor fitted)...
Thanks as always.
