  1. The most important thing is to ensure it not wet under the left seat Will try and find my Wiring Diagrams Good Luck Richard
  2. Is this a 986 or early 997.1 - Pressure release valve under Oil and Coolant filler in Boot Leter 997.1 have valve in Engine Compatment When it all done jack up the back of the car it makes it much eassier OPen the release valve and just run the car I have never had to use special tools BUT do check the coolant regularly and carry at least 2 litres with you If you jack the car up from behind when you have the hose off it will help get rid of the old coolant Halfords do a great deal on COMMA G40 Extreme Concentrate buy in 5 litres (or 20 on line) You will need 10 lites of Con

    Ac removal

    I would agree with RickS7 But drop the front Bumper and get rid of any cr*p between the Condensor and Radiator Perhaps remove the Condensors if they are damaged I use my AC when its very hot but that me
  4. permanently attach the lead to the battery then attach to the charger through the top of the bonnet under the windscreen you can then leave it there permanently ready to connect if required JOB DONE!
  5. Thats the one You might not need it but
  6. Most important is how you do the oil change Make sure you leave the Sump Plug of for at least half an hour to drain properly Once you have done this Fill the filter with Oil (5W 40) and replace. Replace and tighten the Sump Plug Drop the car and fill with 85% of the required Oil. Leave about 20 minutes before checking the level If its over 1/2 on the dip stick OR ReadOut start the engine and turn off Leave another 20 minutes and slowly top it up DO NOT OVERFILL as this can cause seals to blow Ater Boxsters need the engine running to check the level THESE ARE DIFFERENT
  7. Not done a starter motor But its basically the same engine I think the covers underneath are slightly different
  8. Look under you passenger seat Is it wet. The main Control Unit is here MAYBE the problem If its wet Get it completely dry And check under the palce where the roof drops into to make sure the Drain holes are not blocked Hope its not this as it can cost a fortune
  9. Sorry its no something I have done before Don't frget the wheel will cover many of the blemishes
  10. Not as easy as you would think It does POP of but if you don't want to damage it!

    Doors frozen

    Most Important BEFORE you try and open it spray windscreen antifreeze around the windows. Locking mechanism should not freeze in this country Heat key slightly if lock is frozen REgards
  12. If either of the keys don't work Put it in the ignition turn 1 turn Press the main button and hold it in a few seconds later it will al start working Impressed by quality of kets
  13. He great Post You forget no 4 - Change the Car!! Pretty certain there is a similar switch on the Brake for an Auto DO NOT short this out as starting in gear could be fatal
  14. So its the spindle that is broken NOT the knob Is the knob OK. AS a last resort I think I would buy a new knob and use epoxy glue to fix it. I know its a bit drastic but if it works it would save a new/s/h unit Good luck
  15. No idea on the Rof colour but it is imperative that you seal the roof as soon as possible or not let the car get wt until you die AND seal it Good luck and enjoy the car Richard
