Couple of things

Hello people, I just purchased a 97 boxster,it runs really good updated ims 88k
1 family car since new. couple things need attention the first when I put the top up
the windows dont come up, you have to play with the convertable lock then they will
come up, also the airbag light is stuck on,and there is on the driver side rear
a knocking when I go over bumps. any thoughts,any help would be great.
Thank You
Bob in Burbank

Windows: likely the latch micro switch. Try cleaning first, then replacement if that doesn’t work.

Rear clunk: may be the track arms.

Welcome, and post pics!

An owner of one of Sr. Bulto's fine machines? The clunk might be a transmission mount.

Usually when the air bag lite stays on it's the seat belt receptacle failing connection. It's all part of the Supplemental Restraint System. SRS

That's most likely a worn trailing arm bushing. An easy repair and reasonably proiced with TRW arms. You will NOW be able to detect any slop in the bushing by manifupating it by hand. Reralize that this bushing takes the full acelleration load from the suspension and a good part of the braking load.
