2010 Boxster S side vents

Recommended Posts

Howdy all,

I noticed the the vents on my 2010 Boxster S look different on each side, is this normal? On one side it has a plastic plate covering the whole thing. On the other Side it appears that the plastic covering only goes about halfway up the vent and you can visibly see what appears to be a fan. Bus this normal or has thus been modified?

Thanks all,

Scott

The two vents serve different purposes on a Boxster, one is an air intake, the other is an engine compartment heat vent with a fan in it that blows air out when the engine bay reaches certain temps.

Question though.......

On my previous Boxsters the intake on the driver's side, looking in you could see the "runner".

On my 09 this "intake" appears to be closed off so there's been some change.

Anyone know what?

Also I don't think (could be wrong?) the cooling fan blows "out" but draws air in. Be kind of hard to blow air out at any kind of speed.

I don't think this is 100% correct. The driver's side vent is the engine air intake, yes. But the passenger's side vent pulls cool air INTO the engine compartment, not "blows air out". This fan kicks on when the engine compartment reaches a specific temp.

Right, pulls cool air into the engine bay. Not out.
