SOURCE: how to change alternator in a porsche boxter

2 hours needed to change alternator:
- disconnect battery.
- remove top covers of engine - behind front seats
- remove 4 plastic bolts to remove side cover.
- remove all of the bolts to remove metal cover
- losen belt by putting a 24mm wrench on tensioner and turing CCW. You should also consider changing the belt ($18)
- remove the alternator screw and the flywheel screw beside alternator.
- move the alternator up on the flywheel screw side. If stuck use a hammer and wedge to move it up until it losens.
- remove wire and plug.

Rebuilding the alternator. Only 4 things can be wrong:
1- bearing worn out - turn rotor to test.
2- coils short - smell and check for burning in side.
3- Rectifier - take plastic cap off and test with an ohm meet from the heat sink to each of the 3 diodes, then reverse the testing points. If both resistances are the same on any of the 3 diodes, replace rectifier.
4- If the top 3 are fine, then it is the regulator. This is a hard part to find retail. Ebay and other sellers will try and get over $100 for it. Porche claims they don't sell. I found it a wholesaler, who I begged to sell it to me. Cost C$17. 2 bolts and one screw and 5 minutes later and it was replaced.

To reinstall follow the reverse. Remember the flywheel part of the alternator goes in on the to of the backet. you may have to use a hammer and wedge to get it down. Install the flywheel before it goes all the way down, or it will be difficult to slide in.

Enjoy.

SOURCE: 2001 porsche boxter engine running hot

My 2000 Boxster developed a pin hole leak in the coolant reserve tank in the rear trunk. The trunk floor is actually raised, which allowed the coolant to go unnoticed, since the carpet never got wet. I would pull back the carpet on the side and see if there is coolant in the trunk area. If so, the plastic reserve tank will run you about $300 for the part. It is a bit of a pain to replace, but something the average home mechanic can do. Only real hassle was the hose clamps in the engine bay were installed before the engine, hence the engine was in the way of the screw head.

2000 Porsche boxter windows work top won't go down


Good Day,
I just looked at my wiring diagram and see that a fuse from fuse Holder D, Fuse D3,it is a 30amp fuse. I would start here. I may also be a good idea to have a test light if you plan on doing your electrical repairs.

I also see that another fuse connects to your top control unit; it will be fuse B6, 15amp located in fuse Holder B.

Thanks and good luck.

I have a dead battery on my 2002 Porsche Boxter and can't open the hood to jump it. How do I open the hood with a run down battery?


Hello there

In your right front fender is an "emergency operating cable" to open the front hood.
To get to it you need to remove the fender lining and there next to the rear of headlight is the cable.

I have a porsche boxter 986 year 2000 and can not open the bonet


you need to pull the C3 fuse and insert a wire and then put the fuse back in.
connect the neg ground to the metal steering column and the positive to the wire. close the car door and turn the door key on and off three times. open the door and now the hood latch will work.

2002 porches boxter -dead battery and trunk wont open to jump...help outside in the freezing chicago cold


You will have to go to the fuse panel and "jump" the hood open. There is a little nub that pulls out with a copper band. You will need to hook the positive side of the jumper cables to the nub and the negative to something metal. The hood will immediately open. Hope this helps someone else.
