Side Vents - Please Help


Recommended Posts

I picked up my "new" '02 Boxster today. When I arrived home after a long drive, I noticed the driver's-side vent appears different than the passenger side.

I'm hoping that it was just installed incorrectly. Can someone confirm this? If so, how do I fix it?

Thanks,

-Mark

Thanks for the reply. However, I think you are referring to the louvres (sp). My issue is with the way the housing itself is mounted. The passenger-side housing is nice and flush with the body. The driver side housing is actually raised a bit above the body.

Were the housing ever redesigned? I initially thought it needed to be pushed in, but on further inspection they almost look like to different housings.

As far as repainting, I really hope not. I just took delivery today.

Does anyone have more detailed pictures regarding housing removal? I looked at the link above, and although it is helpful, it is not detailed enough to make me comfortable to attempt this.

The two housings do look different now that I look at it again. The flush one is the same as the ones on my 98 Boxster. The other one doesn't seem to have a lip on the outer edge. Did you buy you car from a dealer? Maybe the previous owner have some explaining to do.

Hi-I also have an 02 in guards red--i am putting on carbon fiber side vents and have had the louvers painted guards red.--so i have really looked at my vents. Yours look just like mine. Even though I also am new to this,I pretty sure yours vents are just fine. I will post pictures after the switch.

Your passenger and driver side housings look just like mine? That is, one is flush and one has a lip?

Thanks.

Dave:

Thanks. I would still be interested in pictures when you change yours out.

Steve:

Perhaps you were referring to the housings. I had read that the louvres had been redesigned at some point, but I didn't realize the housings were different.'

All:

Anyone know why they are different? That is, why Porsche designed them this way? Also, out of curiosity, when (what MY) did this change occur?

Thanks,
