I resolved my rattling headrest windguards with a small piece of double sided tape right in the bottom middle of the piece. A piece of foam tape would be as effective.

My 2k boxster needed a water pump around then, and the clutch around 105k. If it still has the original suspension, don't bother trying to compete on the track. LOL

Sorry to bump an old topic, but do you guys think it's worthwhile to (have a shop) replace the opposite bearing when one goes?

I had noticed something similar on my 2000 Boxster with about 90,000 on it. I had it checked out, and the only thing wrong was that one or more baffles inside the rear cats was coming adrift.

I usually pop the AC on when it starts to push into the zero, that helps keep the temp down in traffic. I was worried that perhaps my fans were malfunctioning, but that is not the case.

If you are hearing rattle noises, I think an earlier poster was correct - your old mufflers are more likely the source of the offensive noise. Old cats and old mufflers can start to come apart...

The loose white switch like thing that looks like an adjustment knob inside pushes in and twists to lock. I had that squared away.

The third adjustment hex on the side seems to adjust the tab that protrudes through the inner lense. Thought I'd mention it.

I had considered that; however, I inserted and removed the assembly several times. I will check it again just in case.
