It's covered pretty well in the Porsche Boxster Service Manual by Bentley Publishers. If you don't already own a copy it's pretty handy to have if you do your own maintenance. For only $63 it's a pretty good investment. Plus, there's a direct link to buy one via Amazon on the Sponsors page

Heres an update folks.I did buy the Bentley manual and it is a great source on info. But, tool pants from rentech provided me with link from their forum that really saved me the big bucks! I was able to basically replace my voltage regulator (that porsche does not provide you part numbers for because they want you to spend at least 3 to 400 bucks (dealer price about 900) to buy a new alternator that you can fix for about 50 to 60 bucks) I hope someelse can benefit from this info:

Having learned the hard way [the Porsche Dealer charged me the 900.00 with a strqaight face] I agree with you that the savings is great in doing some of the repairs. Being able to share info on these sites is great. Glad you were able to get it done without loosing money and "face".
