I have searched and searched this forum and the Internet but can't seem to find anyone else with my issue. Last week, I got in the car and the A/C came on full blast, but no air came out of the vents.  I turned it off and then back on a few minutes later and it worked.  It kept working the next several days and then it did it again.

Now it has died completely.  When I turn the fan speed to max, a tiny bit of cool air comes out, but I can barely feel it.  The 2 A/C & Heat fuses are fine and there are no codes in the CEL.  I have the classic foam in the duct issue and worry that it's clogged the fan, but I can't hear the fan starting at all, but I do hear the A/C turn on and some other electronic/mechanical noises when I turn the fan on or off with the controls.

Does anyone have any idea what might be wrong?  As a Floridian with 90+ degree days, your help is much appreciated!

Sounds like the blower fan motor or the power transistor is gone. If there are any error codes on the climate control unit, it will not show up as CEL. You need Durametric or alike to query the climate control computer for error codes.

Without scannng it, you can check the fuses, unplug the motor and hotwire it to see if it spins.

      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?

      Cabriolet side/mud flaps are actuated by this lead screw which is attached to the shaft of the drive motor.
      If your tops gets out of synch as mine did when the bolt that holds a side arm casting to the hydraulic piston fell out, then it creates a cascading nightmare of fragile part failures.
      First that spindly potentiometer arm with the lightening holes to save a hundredth of gram of plastic breaks off, now these. 
       
      This tiny molded soft plastic nut runs on what I measure as a M8 x 1.5 pitch lead screw, which is apparently less common than the M8 x 2 pitch lead screw used in 3D printers.
      It is ridiculous to replace the entire side flap assembly because this soft plastic lead screw nut gets run to the end and stripped/cracked so it runs too slow and the computer times out.
       
      Has anyone sourced this lead screw nut or a replacement M8 x 1.5 pitch lead screw nut with a triangular or round flange that could be cut down square to insert into the carrier that operates the flap?

      List Mates, I have a 2002 996 c4. When my Air conditioner compressor is activated the volume of air coming out of the vents is decreased dramatically.  It still blows cold but just very very low volume or amount. I have had it recharged , checked leaks , replaced condensors etc but nothing changes. As soon as you switch the ac off ( snowflake button) the volume of air through the vents goes right back up.  Volume of air is fine on heat , defrost etc.  I have never had this issue with any other vehicle. Any ideas as to what the problem may be?

      Hey yall! I'm new here, long time lurker but now that I've come to a bunch of problems I cannot get resolve with the DIY or tutorial I was able to find on here or youtube I decided to open a post with my issues and see what you guys think! I have some (prolly) simple ones and some really weird ones. A little bit of context: I just bought my cayenne turbo (2004) 2 months ago from its 1st owner that neglected it for the last 3-5 years of ownership. I have done a lot of mechanical work on the car ( I can list everything if needed). These issues are mainly cosmetic and quality of life ones.
       
      1st: The side view mirror shells. Are they suppose to be this flimsy ? the half shell does a plastic rattling noise when I close the door (mainly on the driver side)

      2nd: Steering column adjustment. Now this one I read a lot about resetting the seat control by tilting it and stuff, done it, did not work. It did clear my memory settings for the seats but not reset the motor for the steering wheel. As you can see, it can go in and out, not up and down....

      3rd: The PoS that is called the PCM Radio. I think the previous owner finger f*ck the hell out of the radio system because, well... It's not working great. Main issue it that the time keeps resetting and does not fallow the real clock, it just gets stuck and the date is now missing but used to be stuck in year 2000 (for a 2004 model) It's asking me to insert the GPS disk to get it to update I think now...

      4th: The worst. Hopefully the video explains it....well, it's completely lost at where to throw the air...

      I have another major one when I drive that it kick between gears (only some gears, only some times) mechanic told me it's the transfercase/module, interweb tells me it's the transmission valve body..., i'll make a video about that one later. Thank for the help in advance !

      has anyone ever recharged their AC? I have a 2005 Cayenne Turbo. I noticed the other day the AC is not as cold as it used to be. Has anyone used AC Pro to recharge their AC? I believe the refrigerant is the same as what Porsche uses. Is this something that a novice can attempt, or will this damage the AC system by using an after market refrigerant that is not from Porsche?
