Use a flat bladed screwdriver or you hands to lift the bottom of the boot away from the console. It has small clips that hold it down on the console. They just pop out. Once the boot is free all around and if you have the standard shifter, you can then pull the shifter off. The amount of force may vary depending on your car. Some have found it very easy to remove, other have found it more difficult. If it is difficult to remove, sit in the passengers seat, put the shifter in reverse and using the floor for leverage, pull on the shifter while pressing into the floor with your feet. I should come off. If not, try applying some heat to the neck of the shifter just below the knob, being careful not to damage the leather, and try again. If you have a shifter other than the base shifter, you will need to use a T30 Torx screwdriver to loosen a screw under the boot in the front of the shaft of the shifter just below the knob.

My 1998 Porsche Boxster automatic gear console face light doesn't turn on . Why does stay without light?


You probably have a loose wire to the gear console switch, or a bad board somewhere. Check to see that you have voltage going to the lights in the console.

To close the top, the parking brake must be engaged and the ignition in the ON position. Assuming that these conditions are met, you can close the top manually if needed. The procedure involves (1) removing key, (2) removing convertible top link covers, (3) gently prying conv top lid links on both side, (4) lifting the conv top lid to open position, (5) gently prying the red links off, and (6) finally manually lifting the top to the closed position.

Before taking such measures, if you do not hear the motors, check the B6 and D3 relays. You might also want to check the microswitch on the top/center windshield frame.

How to install a cabin air filter in a 2001 Porsche Boxster S


Porsche offers option an option called the Active Carbon Filter (M571) for $458. However, you can purchase the same part at your dealer parts counter for under $70. The part number for the active carbon filter is 996.571.219.01. The active carbon filter reduces the air pollution by using charcoal in the filter.
To replace the existing filter with the new one you must open the front trunk, remove the battery cover. It is in the middle at the top and has two knobs that you turn to remove. Once it is off you remove the black plastic cover to the left of the battery. It requires that you remove a single Torx screw so you will need a Torx screwdriver. Once you remove the cover you will see the filter to the left rear. It is about 10X6 or so. Simply remove the old filter and replace it with the new one. Then reverse the process on the covers and you are done. It will take less than five minutes start to finish.

1 st gear ok 2nd gear loses power rpm goes high


Check engine light on?

Is it a manual or auto? Assuming its a manual, is there an ABS light on? If so or if you hace changed the brake pads recently or even had the tires off or rotated, there could be a problem in the brake pad sensor or abs wheel speed sensor.

Check with Porsche service (your closest dealer) for recalls or TSB (Technical Service Bulletins) related to your concern and check the cayman/boxster owners clubs for similar posts and resolutions.

Hope that helps.
