Really easy but you need a couple of tools but they're cheap. The drain plug requires a 10mm hex allen head socket and the filter is the cartridge style that is easier to remove if you have a strap style filter wrench. Once you have these, all you need to do is remove the plug, have a big tray, 9 quarts in the engine. Then remove the housing that holds the filter, pull out the old filter, stick the new one in and replace the housing, hand tight. Everything is easily accessible underneath the engine, it may help to jack the back up a little.

    Somewhat of a correction here, I've noticed lately that most I do have a 8mm hex socket in the drain plug, funny because my friends' car has the 10 mm. Be prepared for either size.

Smoke iside and coming through both vents on my 2002 porsche boxter, plus oil leak.


it picks up air for all vents from the passenger side footwell if im not mistaken, also if im not mistaken that is close the 'ash tray' area in these trucks, if you have a cigarette sitting in the ashtray smoldering that could be what you are seeing being pulled threw and blown back out, or maybe you dropped a cigarette and its just smoldering near there . . .

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.
