Was a lovely day. Came out of the coffee shop with my son. Popped the release lever/handle in the roof and hit the button. Managed to not pop the lever/handle enough and the roof didn't seem to want to move much. Stupidly I persevered and next there was a loud snap. Turns out I've snapped both of the push rod ends. I heard that Porsche only sell the full arm with the end, so ordered some new ends off eBay. Couldn't find metal ones, so have just gone plastic again. Managed to get the old ends off ok. Access to the arms/ends is a bit fiddly but doable. Anyone had this problem? Anything else I should look out for?
Glovebox Removal - Performed on 2006 987 Boxster (Gen 1 or 987.1)NebulaOdyssey on BoXa.net BoXa profile Tools: 5/32” Allen Key (Hex)Torx T-25Torx T-20Old credit/debit/loyalty type card Steps: First you will need to remove the left side panel of the centre console. Use this guide if you need help with this step http://www.planet-9....removal-29.html Next, remove the cup holder. This has two hex screws visible from underneath when the glovebox is in the open position. I used an Allen Key as there is not much vertical height to fit a tool. Behind the cup holder there are two torx screws. Then down the right hand edge of the glovebox there are three more torx screws. Underneath the glovebox remove the black foam type covering, which has five plastic screw fittings (flat head or use a plastic card). Then while underneath, on the right hand side of the glovebox there is another torx screw. On the left hand side of the glove box, open the car door and pull off the black door seal near the glovebox section. Now remove the plastic insert by placing a card underneath and pulling away from the car, i.e. towards the open door. Once loose it pivots out. Here are the two clips holding it on, It pivots on the other end. Then you will be able to see and remove the two torx screws. One last screw is hiding behind the dash panel to the left of the glovebox. Looking straight on, wrap your fingers underneath the bottom and give it a tug straight out towards the back of the car. Once the bottom is loose give the top a little pull away from the front and it should come off easily. Behind here is the last torx screw to remove. Finally, with the glovebox door open pull the whole thing towards the back of the car, it may drop so support it. Now the glovebox can be lowered while being careful of any wires from the light and OBD II socket as I think these are attached. DONE! Reinstallation: Installation is the reverse of removal. The glovebox does need a little wiggling to locate it back into position. There are a few lugs to locate it all properly. Here is a PDF download, Click Here
