Rear wing will not deploy with switch

Rear wing will not deploy using switch
The rear wing on my 2007 987 Boxster deploys at speed but  will not extend by operating the dash mounted switch.  The fact that it operates at all seems to  eliminate a fuse as the issue. Might it be the switch, or some other cause ?

Tow bolt thread size for 2000 boxster basic. The bolt that came with the car will not thread in. Do they have different size bolts for 2000.

The tow bolt that came with the car will not thread into the frame. The bolt threads are to big. The one in the frame are small. Did Porsche make different ones for 2000? Do I have the wrong bolt for a 2000? The bolt is a knuckle thread. Please advise.

How to remove the convertible top on the 2011 Boxster (987.2)

I need to install a new hardtop for my 2011 Boxster S. Will I need to remove the convertible top (temporarily) to acess the attachment site for the new bolts for the Spinlocks? I have searched many forums but can't find this information, or how to actually do it. I am an average home auto mechanic (and do a lot of the maintenace for my 1990 C2). Would I be wise to tackle this myself (there is some satisfaction in doing so)?

Convertible top will not shut down when reaches fully open or closed

I have a 98 Boxster and the convertible top rod ends broke. Common problem and I put new ends on, and discovered the top does not stop trying to operate when it reaches fully open or closed. As long as you hold the switch it keeps running. The micro switches at the b pillar and the clamshell both work, good ground connections under the seat. Have not seen one do this before. Leaning towards the double relay, but wondered if anyone has seen this before.



How do I remove the spoiler? Looking to replace with an aftermarket "duck" tail

I am looking to replace my current, stock spoiler with an aftermarket carbon fiber duck tail type spoiler. However, I do not see how to remove the stock spoiler! I see there are holes beneath the spoiler on the backside, but I dont feel/see a screw.
