Hi I have a 2002 boxster 986 with a window drop problem . When open and shut passenger door window catches. When I use roof switch or window rocker switches window operates up and down however I can manually push the passenger window down about 1-2 inches by hand but can't budge the driver window . Also when I pull the roof lever both windows drop but by different amounts ?

 

is this a regulator issue ?

 

i would like some help before spending money out on parts

You are likely going to have to open the door panel and inspect it find out.

There is a microswitch in the door handle that tells the window to drop as you open the door. But a bad regulator can also cause the window not drop properly.

The microswitch can be easily tested with an ohm meter once it is out of the circuit and most bad regulators show signs of wear or shredding of the cable.

You won't know for sure until you remove the door panel and do the inspection.

I have had the panel off my concern is that I can manually push the window down 2 inches by hand on that side yet the other side that works fine is solid and it won't move by hand. 

I have had the panel off and can't see any issues visually

      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.
