how is the plastic rivet holding the gas cap tether best removed?

The tether to the gas cap broke; I have the replacement as well as the small plastic rivet that secures the tether to the door bracket. How is this best removed without damage to the surounding paint area?

Owner's Manual needed

Hello everyone,

Does anyone know where I can get a pdf owner's manual for my 2000 Boxster S? All the replacement hard copies I've found are ridiculously expensive.


Suggested Porsche Maintenance

I have a 2016 Boxster Spyder with less than 6,000 miles.  The car was delivered to me, new, in Fall, 2015 - so, now 5 years old.  For most of the year, the car sits in my garage on a battery tender.

My dealer is recommended that, notwithstanding the low mileage, they perform the first major service, which includes, among other things, replacing spark plugs.  Cost for this service is about $1,700.00

Ever solved this creaking noise in 2013 Boxster?

A creaking noise forward of the driver generally comes and goes when it wants, but seems to be affected by changes in the pitch of a car - e.g. going uphill over downhill.   I think it sounds like something sliding against something else.  A well respected Porsche mechanic could hear it but after 7 hours gave up the search.  Any ideas

Looking to replace headlamp rubber seals on 2003 Boxster

Recently replaced bulbs in Boxster headlamps. Rubber seals are dry and looking to replace just the seals.  Was told only option would be to purchase new headlamps.  Any suggestions

Can somebody tell me why my 2001 Boxster S makes a howling noise by the passenger side? It happens mostly at slow speeds, but can happen at high speeds as well. I am in Northern NJ.

I bought this car last year with 46000 miles.  It has that howling sound at low speeds as well as sometimes on high speed.  Also, I need to check my air conditioner, the vents show moisture and the glass exhibits condensation.  Would like to avoid the dealership, way too expensive.  Thanks!

Air bag retaining frame

Hi Pedro. Recently the horn on my 99 Boxster started blowing during breaking and at random times. I found this to be a common problem with the Boxster and replacment of the air bag retaining frame is required. I ordered one from Pelican parts. When I recieved it I iinspected it to find that the 4 rubber bushings had small holes thru the rubber portion of the bushing. Thinking this was a defect I contacted Pelican and they said this is normal. It doesn't seem right to me. I would expect that the rubber be intact without holes like swiss cheese.

91 octane fuel OK in California?

Any issues with using 91 octane gas, since 93 octane is not available in California?  Does it work to mix 100 octane racing gas with 91 to get something close to 93? Thank you

Boxster top

The top has developed bilateral identical horzontal linear 2-3 inches long abrasions mid level and mid position front to back in the areas rearward to the windows.  The dealer states that they have seen this in other Boxsters of the same iteration. Any thoughts?
