That heat shield is there to prevent radiant heating of the shift linkage by the muffler. Although at speed the turbulent air under the car eliminates convective heating, it does nothing about...

YES.
The problem is not in the clutch, the slave or master cylinder, or in the pedal bushings. The problem is in the 'clutch assist spring' device.
This little device consists of a fairly stiff...

That's the way I do it, too. I eventually got tired of having to rig up the strap and the ratchet and fitted my Boxsters with the rear suspension brace from Pedro. The bar was a bit of a pain to fit...

damaged immobilizer circuit board

Welcome to the forum!
See my post of April 7 2018.

I have three '97 Boxsters, mileage at acquisition ranging from 17,000 to 165,000. My suggestion, for a car under 200,000 miles, largely LEAVE IT ALONE! That is, mostly I would address issues only as...

Wet Box

After I lost an immobilizer in my red Boxster I fitted the ECUDOCTORs plastic case to all three off mine, and also (God forbid!) drilled holes in the floorboards to allow water to drain out. No...

Yup, highly likely a damaged immobilizer box. These evil devices should have been located on the rear compartment wall, where the engine control unit is. The immobilizer is encoded to match the ECU...

It doesn't take much to fill the floorboards an inch deep in water and short out the immobilizer box; that happened to one of my Boxsters the first time it came a heavy rain. The drain holes in the...

Remember, in the oil viscosity rating, the first number relates to the oil's behavior when cold, the second number to it's behavior when hot. Think of a 0W40 oil as a somewhat-thick oil that doesn't...
