Boxster Spark Plugs, Drive Belt
Had this little Boxster come in the other day to finish it’s 60k service which required changing the spark plugs and the accessory drive belt. Pretty straight forward repair.
Opening the front up to get to the belt.
Oil change with the obligatory magnetic drain plug installed. This will help us monitor the intermediate shaft bearing for debris.
Pretty common issue with the 996/986/997/987 are the coilpack connector clip becoming brittle and breaking off. This one had a broken clip on #6. I keep these in stock just for this reason. Plastic just isn’t impervious to repeated heat stresses. A very quick repair while you are in there doing plugs. Using a special tool, the old pins are removed from the plug and installed into the new plug.
