  1. DIY: Wiper rubber replacement

    981 DIY Discussion
    I recently replaced the wiper rubbers on my car. Replacing the wiper blade is an expensive process when all that needs replacing is the rubber. I buy the rubbers in bulk on ebay for next to nothing and then replace when required. Link below for video on how to do it. Simple and only takes a few...
  2. Clutch ping

    718 Chat
    My 2018 CS manual transmission makes a ping sound when depressing the clutch. There is no sound when the clutch is released. The sound appears to come from below the pedal like a spring is rubbing. The sound is louder when the ambient temperature is colder. I took it to the dealer and they said...
  3. Question for manual drivers

    718 Chat
    Hi all, Sort of an embarrassing question, but does anyone have trouble rev matching on downshifting from 3rd to 2nd smoothly? In all other gears, a small blip of the throttle does the trick, but for whatever reason, the throttle response seems diminished when I am pulling out of 3rd gear into...
  4. Cracked pressure plate - 981 2.7

    981 Cayman and Boxster Problems and Complaints
    My 2016 981c 2.7 all of a sudden wouldn't go into gear easily. This happened at a stop light. I had to yank it into the gear to get it moving. The clutch pedal became light and the bite point dropped way down as well. The car would shift easily when the engine is turned off but wouldn't when its...
  5. What's this noise?

    981 Cayman and Boxster Problems and Complaints
    Hi all -- I have recently started noticing this random clicking noise on my 981PBS PDK, typically when maneuvering at low speeds. Doesn't need to involve steering -- it sometimes sounds once when moving from standstill at a red light, or when reversing. It's some sort of metallic click, not...

  7. TPMS alert feature idea

    Porsche Tires & Wheels
    I had a puncture and slow leak today (on a fun run, in the middle of nowhere, rats.). The TPMS warned when it was down to like 29psi, below the norm of 34 cold, about 38+ warmed up at the time. Somebody should send P some software folks and give me an alarm when it's trending down, not just...
  8. Spoiler Issue

    981 Cayman and Boxster Problems and Complaints
    I've been having an annoying problem for a few months now. My spoiler extends and retracts at seemingly random times. When I'm driving down the highway and hit 75 mph I get a "Spoiler Loss, Reduce Speed" message that I can't dismiss. Goes away when I slow down. Thing is my spoiler will...
  9. Strange oil leak

    981 Cayman and Boxster Problems and Complaints
    Got my oil changed on my 15 BB 2 weeks ago. When the car is in the garage on level floor,no oil leak. But when I park it in my driveway which has a 20-30 degree incline I get a little oil leakage. I’ve parked it in the driveway twice and got the leak twice. Guess I’ll be going to the dealer next...
  10. Knocking sound from transmission area.

    987 Cayman and Boxster Chat
    I have a 2007 Cayman S with about 46,000 miles on it. This evening it developed a very strange knocking sound. I jacked the car up and it appears to be coming from the transmission area. It goes away when I depress the clutch. If I put it in gear and let the rear tires spin while they are...
  11. Horrible Scraping Noise

    987 Cayman and Boxster Problems and Complaints
    Last week, my car suddenly started making a horrible scraping noise form the left rear wheel area. It is speed dependent, and it gets louder when you turn right, and much quieter when you turn left. It also refuses to make any noise when it is up on a lift, which is maddening. My first thought...

  13. Window Drop To Open Door

    Pistol Petes Boxster Board
    My 2003 Box S passenger side window will not dip with either inside handle nor outside handle. I replaced the outside micro switch, no effect. Checked continuity of inside handle and checked good. Windows dip when unlocking top and go back up when re-locking. I can push down on window a bit...

  19. Hold function a bit clunky

    981 Cayman and Boxster Problems and Complaints
    I've had a few occasions where the hold function was a bit clunky. In both cases it happened in my driveway which has a 5% or so grade. The hold function will often go on while I wait for the garage door to open. Upon releasing the brake and pressing the gas, the car has jerked a bit as if...
  20. Coilover top hat mount question.

    987 Cayman and Boxster Chat
    My car came with KW coilovers. They were never installed properly. The purple mount does not spin when the wheels are turned. So the spring binds then clangs when it does spin. So what exactly is supposed to happen here. I would think the purple mount would sit on the OEM bearing? If i take...
