1st let the top 1/2 the way down and then while it is in that position release the 2 cables that are holding the back part of the top to the body.it is hard to pull off but they do come loose. then take out your storage bonnet behind your seats. then remove the carpet from top shelf there. then there are 4 twist unlocking mechanisms. twist them and then there is your engine.

I cant find were the power steering going on a 1999 porsche boxster


The power steering fluid reservoir is located near the top center in the engine compartment (see this thread for a picture: http://www.renntech.org/forums/topic/41098-where-to-top-up-power-steering-fluid/). Your owners manual will show you how to gain access to the engine compartment.

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.

HOW DO I REPLACE MY ENGINE AIR FILTER ON MY 05 PORSCHE BOXTER


Hello there
it is very easy .You need to get to the engine first .You need to lift the top half way up so you can remove the storage compartment behind your seats.Then unhoock 2 rod on each side of the cabrio.
Lift the soft part up.Remove the sound isolation away from the car .Then remove the engine cover 5 screw-bolts.
How you will see the engine and on the left is the air filter .Just pull for the top cover and you will see the filter itself.

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.
