02 Speedster Humps
 
I have order Speedster Humps as a Dealer installed option (not a factory build option). Does any know if the Dealer needs to install the mount adapter kit on the iconvertible top frame rail on the 2002 Boxster?

If you don't already have spinlocks installed then either the dealer or you will need to install them for the humps to work. It's an easy thing to do so you can save some $$$ by doing it yourself or with a little help.

I do not think the spinlock are there, but could not see. So I sould follow up this question. Does the factory install the new spinlocks adaptor on all models wo this bulid option? I had read posting on the early model about the spinlocks but nothing on the newer models.

I believe that the factory only installs the spinlocks if the car is ordered with the hardtop or the humps.

Here's the TSB on how to install the spinlocks.

Do you know how the speedster strap attaches to the part 986-563-713-02?

Yoseif,

Thank's for the attachment. I have fabricated the part that I needed and purchased the two bolts 999 219 041 00. I am writing a paper on this for a later posting. I have tried every angle to insert the bolt, but the mechanisum of the soft top seems to prevent this. Do you have any recommendations, or guidelines on how to install the bolts? :)

There are a few more tips in this thread. While all the pictures are gone due to the demise of Photopoint I think there are enough clues to get things done. The biggest hint is to make sure you raise the top when trying to put the bolts in.

I wish the photo's were still there, I am a very visual person. With the top up, the plastic closure for the top prevents any access to installing or tourquing down the bolt. Do you remove this cover, if so how?

Don't know for sure. There are a couple of pictures here though they don't seem to be of much help. One of the experts is over on renntech.org so you could also try over there.

On the surface it's a simple task but takes about an hour or so. To me this says there's a bit of tinkering that gets done so everything will fit right. Plus any upgrade that recommends the use of a hammer means it may be more difficult than it would seem on the surface :eek:
