    To be honest, I made myself a promise I would do as much of the work as I could because at $150 Hour I cant afford to pay someone. I am quite handy and honestly I haven't been very impressed with the "experts" ability to diagnose and fix the car and they have the "machine" to help them. If I am going to pay through the nose I expect the "experts" to do a better job than me and know more than me. I have found more knowledge trolling this and other forums and talking to enthusiasts like you!

    Hi Kevin, Have you replaced inner cv joint? I have a 99 and my right inner cv joint is toast. I am considering replacing it without removing the axle. I am thinking that if I remove the bolts holding the joint to the transmission then the circlip then the joint should slide off?

    Hi Kevin, Me again still working on the cluster upgrade/rear spoiler switch hack/intermittent wiper hack/4 stalk hack. question is I found your posting of Double din upgrade and your rearview camera. Does your rearview camera adjust as you turn the wheel? I wired up my rearview camera power to the backup lights and that works fine. But the "aiming" does not move with the wheel does your "aiming" of the rearview camera work?

    Hi Kevin,
    A question on the code for the 996 cluster.... Do you know where there is gas gauge calibration code? My 996 cluster is off about a 1/4 tank of gas.. It fills fine.. but goes down too slowly. Like I'll go 250 miles on a half tank of gas.... I'm wondering if my fuel gauge is bad. I looked up the part number of the cluster and it's a C2 one... Not a turbo.. Can't tell if it's a c4 though.

    Thanks!
    ...Joe

    Hi Kevin,
    I've installed a nice 996 cluster in my 04 Boxster S. All works except my radio is in protect mode. I've love to learn how to reprogram the VIN in the 996 cluster. jag94040@att.net
    Thanks!

    Hi Kevin, I have a EPROM programmer on its way and printed off the instructions you sent me. Basically I connect the soic wire to the eprom chip and the programmer, connect the programmer to my laptop, copy the "code" from the existing 986 cluster and new 996 cluster and save both files as current state. Then I copy mileage, vin from 986 file to New copy of 996 file and also change 996 to 986 in a couple of places. Then copy the New 996 file to the eprom chip on the 996 cluster and I should be ok? did you use notpad or wordpad to edit the files? to cut and paste?

    Hi Kevin, got a question for you. Did you install 996 guages in your Boxster? Does one need to have the vin of the car the 996 guages came out of? I am thinking about doing this at some point but the clusters can be very expensive. I found one on ebay starting bid $150. I have a tip car a 99 Boxster. I probably won't do this right away but keep scrounging for a decent low cost cluster and dont want to waste my money.
