I had this problem and saw all the lists of possible issues. Turns out there is a more common issue that doesn't seem to show up on all the responses. It's a $70 part and easy to swap. So I'm...

Macster was right. Something blocking it.

It was a metal sleeve/tube in the end of the cable housing that slid forward and blocked the cable from full motion. I was able to slide the sleeve...

Fixed! Well, sort of. This was my exact problem. That metal sleeve/tube had slid forward. I was able to slide it back. I first tried a small hose clamp just forward of the metal sleeve/tube. ...

I just had this happen to me on my 2000 Boxster S. Glad to have found this thread. I will try the clamp method. Any other solutions since then? And does the brass piece serve a significant...

I found a post that someone had what sounds like a similar issue and it was the cable that had popped off or broke.

I will investigate that on the weekend. But, I don't think that would explain...

Boxster Won't Go Beyond 2nd

My 2000 Boxster S with 6 speed all of a sudden will not go beyond 2nd. It will do R, 1 and 2. But it physically will not move to the right to get to 3-6. Thoughts?!

Yeah, I found that B&M lousy too. Terrible to find it out AFTER the white bushings are destroyed. But, I couldn't be happier now. I went to my local dealer and bought the stock 997 shifter - the...

This same thread is running on the 964 list on this site. I came across that thread first, since I was in the 964 area since I'm looking for one now. That thread certainly has a 964 bias to it, and...

1973 Muffler question (any early 911 could help)

Anyone know what the tip on the 1973 911 is supposed to be like? In particular, the 1973.5 CIS 911?

On my 1973.5 911, I had to replace the muffler about 18 years ago. At the time, they told me...

996 Engine sound in Boxster

I'm curious. On the Boxsters with 996 engines in them, do they sound like 996s or Boxsters? I guess the real question is what makes the distinctive difference between the 996 and Boxster? Is it...

No additives. Just drove it 2 days before, and drive it daily about 15 miles each way. (Then I take the train the rest of the way).

No, don't use Henry. He's the best Porsche mechanic that has ever worked on my 911, and finally fixed a problem that three other mechanics couldn't. So, please don't use him. My Boxster just...

"Porsche" watch my dad got from Porsche with his '58

The other day, my dad gave me a wristwatch he said he got from Porsche in 1958 when he bought a new 356. (The 356 is long gone). The watch is silver, with "PORSCHE" in red across the top of the face,...
