Just found out there Is Not a bleeder valve for the 2008 boxter..... After wasting a whole day looking for it buying a new floor jack and the coolant... this is not a job for the DIY mechanic.. you need a special tool to suck all the old coolant out and and an air compressor.  Pissed at pelican parts lol.

and yes, you will need an air compressor.

Lot more you can do in the DIY world with a small air compressor...

There is most definitely a coolant valve on the 2008 Boxsters. It is located under the top engine cover on the passanger side just in front of the coolant overflow tank. 


[Only resurrecting this because it is one of the first google results for "987 bleeder valve" and contains incorrect information]
