SOURCE: 1999 porsche boxster windows wont go up all the way

That problem appears to be in the top release. this is the thing at the top of the windshield that you release. Press the button inside of it to see if that may be the problem. it is the only thing that wouldn't let your windows go all the way up. The switch inside may have gone bad.

SOURCE: Water leaking into 2005 Camry 6 cyl under carpet drivers side.

I think that I can help you. It sounds like your drain-tube is plugged up. Get in the passenger side, and pull the carpet back from under the glove box. Look for a black rubber pipe that goes from a black box, and pokes thru the firewall, on the passenger side. Remove the hose from the box, and have a container ready to catch water. If water comes out of the black box, your drain hose is plugged up. Clean out the clog, and you will be golden.

My 99 boxster is making noise while turned off it stops when i pull the power window fuse what can i do

Check under the LH seat that the car ECU isn't sitting in water or the carpet is wet. If it is dry it out and make a hole in the floor to let the water out. Then try and cure the leak. Other than that it could be a sticking relay.

I have a 1999 Porsche Boxster; it want start. My carpet is wet behind the seat. I am being told that the control box is out or something about the immobilizer. Also my windows are came down even though the...

Possible water entry came from the rear cabrio area membranes under the roof drive units, which will allow for water entry into the cabin and will soak the floor. The alarm CU lives under the seat. Normally when they get wet, they have to be replaced. Sometimes your key remotes will also need to be replaced with the alarm CU. Also make sure that your front plenum drains, near your car battery, are clean of leaves and debris. PS; If water is entering from the rear roof membranes, don't do the rest of the work and NOT replace these, as this fault WILL happen again.

Seat Alhambra 1996 1.9L water leak drivers footwell

the water can travel along surfaces or beams in the car so you cannot tell where it is actually leaking. in my ford windstar water leaked in right over the fuse box. it ran along a cross beam from the passenger side. if it has those plastic strips they use to go in between small gaps in the metal... like along the roof where the roof is and the metal of the sides joins it is likely they are leaking. best to take a garden hose and have someone inside the car with a flashlight on the floor looking for leaks
