The Boxster 987 is now into its third year of production. Has anyone seen service manuals or other technical manuals available?

Hi elt38,

Congratulations on being the first poster on this 987 board! I was wondering if anyone would ever post here.

Parts catalogs are available for free at https://techinfo.porsche.com/techinfo/index.jsp

You may find more info on the Porsche forums -- check them out.

Regards,

Check out WWW.RENNTECH.ORG and you can find out how to get workshop manuals for the 987 and 987C.

Thanks for the hint. The parts catalogs are a good step in the right direction. The exploded views give you some hints on how things fit together and how things might get disassembled/reassembled. I'll continue to keep an eye out for the first manuals.

The 987/987C workshop manual from Porsche is over 5,000 pages. I know you can also get the wiring diagrams, OBDII manuals, TSBs and more. The PDF parts file you found on the internet is a good start but not as good as the dealer version PET 7.0 which includes updates and model cross references that the dealer uses. I don't know how to email or PM here so PM me from www.renntech.org and I can set you up with a complete set.

I went to the renntech.org site and can't find the 987/987C workshop manuals or how to get them. Can you provide more specific directions as to where on the site to look?

Thanks!

Search for me at RENNTECH.ORG I am a member there known as porschelibrarian. I can email or PM you there I can't here. And while the PDF version of the parts is better than nothing the actual dealer PET is much better. You can search by VIN, part name, part number, get updated part numbers, and more.

Read "porschelibrarian's" post above. You need to go to the renntech forum and send him a PM for info.

When I start the car after it is in the garage overnite(cold), there is a puff of blue smoke. Does anyone know why this happens, the car has 3000 miles on it.

Does anyone know how to get a set of service manuals on cd(service dept says that all manuals are in the computer) from porshe for the 2009 boxster?
