986 Paint Code and Wiper Washer

Darn glad I found this forum, you guys have answered so many questions before I even had to ask them. I just bought my first Boxster (98 2.5l tip) and still getting used to all its intricacies. I have two questions, the windshield wiper washer is not working. It worked intermittently for a couple weeks and then just stopped working altogether. Has anyone experienced this problem? Also, I need to get some touch-up paint but don't know where to get the paint code and where I can buy the paint itself online. Can anyone help?

I have the same question for the paint.

Should I ask a color pen at the dealer or go in a specialised shop and get a color match?

The paint code should be on a sticker on the underside of the front hood. That sticker also has all the options that the car has.

Try expresspaint.com for touch-up paint.

I looked online for the paint for my speed yellow car and it was outrageously priced. I went down to O'Rielly's which is an auto parts store here and told them the color and they matched the paint. I didn't even have to have the paint code. Not to mention it was less than half the cost of the stuff I found online.

Thanks for the help, it was interesting to find out the paint on my car is actually called Ocean Blue and not Lapis Blue as the registration says (and person I bought it from) - unless these two paints are the same? I also found the paint on europaints.com. Any help on the wiper washer?
