    Hey guys, 2015 981 boxster s, 33k miles, upgrades include Porsche dealer installed plenum, pse, throttle body. Recently had door panel adhesive because they were departing, and installed k&n filters myself. The other day I opened the trunk and the alarm activated. Nothing heavy inside. When I...

    Looking for help. Parked my 2005 Boxster S for two weeks, and now the rear trunk will not release (with key or interior switch) and getting a Failure Spoiler Control at 75mph or when I press the spoiler button. Any advice? I’ve only seen one other post but it didn’t seem to have a solution...

    Renting a 718 Boxster with Hertz at the Ft. Lauderdale Airport next week, then driving to the Keys for a week. Need to know if the 718 Boxster will accommodate: - Away Aluminum Edition "Bigger Carryon" in Frunk or rear trunk (...

    Hello, Like many owners my 718 Cayman has had an annoying amount of rattles and squeaks. Most of them I have now tracked down and removed entirely or greatly reduced. So here is a little guide I've made to help fellow owners. Please feel free to add your own experiences. Let's start with an...

    I am trying to pass a single RCA type cable from the passenger side seat belt area through to the trunk. I purchased the Maxxspeed Motorsports rearview camera. All is good except for the final leg into the trunk area. Lots of moving parts around the top mechanism. I need some guidance on a...

    I have a 2007 base cayman with no bose system or amp. I am getting ready to install a JL 5 channel amp into the car. I found the location that it will fit nicely in and that is up against the back panel wall of the front trunk (frunk). But I am at a loss as to where to run the wires from that...

    Believe me I searched all over this forum and the internet and now I just have to ask the question. Where in the heck is the cayman stereo amp located. From all of the research it is supposed to be in the trunk. I just purchased a 2007 base cayman and the car has a front and reck trunk. There...

    I have a new-to-me 2008 Boxster and having trouble with the remote trunk release. I have two keys and both will release the frunk but neither will operate the rear trunk. The manual release works though. It appears that the rear bumper has been painted so I'm assuming there was rear end damage...

    My battery won't last a week without driving the car (new battery replaced a few months ago) and I am trying to track down any parasitic draw. When I test the current through the battery I am getting 3.5 amps but with the trunk open to reach the battery the front trunk light is on which will...

    The trunk releases just fine when the trunk button on the door sill is actuated. I can open the frunk fine with my fob. Is there a fuse or something I can look at, or do I just need to replace the switch assembly? Thanks! Mike
  11. 987 Cayman and Boxster Problems and Complaints
    My '11 Cayman base (without PASM and no dash speakers) is at almost 100k miles. During a long trip through Nevada on Hwy 50 Monday it suddenly developed a loud rattle/vibration/buzz in the upper left driver-side dashboard, kinda near the left speaker grill. It went away after a little while...

    I have a just-just delivered Cayman S with Comfort Access. Has anyone discovered a trick to reliably have the rear trunk open when placing your hand underneath the spoiler? I end up waving my hand there a couple of times before it opens. I have tried to notice if there is a specific spot to...

    I was browsing 981 Boxster trunk capacities and found a reference to the removal of the forward panel in the rear trunk to access more storage space. The poster said the panel was easy to remove and one then had 43 inches of depth by 10 inches high, the added space being underneath the folded...
  14. 981 Cayman and Boxster Electronics
    The manual seems to imply that if you open the trunk (or frunk) without the key, i.e. by waving your hand below the trunk, the doors also unlock. To play it safe, I'm locking the car using the button on the door handle only after getting my bag out of the trunk, but this basically means I have...

    The front trunk release switch (visible when you open the driver's door) doesn't work anymore, but the equivalent button on the ignition key still works. Does anyone know how to get access to this switch? - you never know, it might just be a loose connector. And if I need to replace the switch...

    so I will have to hook-up a battery tender directly to the battery from a external power source by running an extension cord under front trunk lid. My question is when the front trunk hood-latch is released allowing the hood to pop open slightly with the safety latch still engaged, does the...

    When I was walking to my car today, I popped the trunk so I could place my gym bag in there, and I noticed how the rear of the 981 with the trunk lid popped, looks quite similar to the back of the 718. I wonder if 718 owners are going to be continually told, "Hey buddy, I think your trunk may...
