2010 (987.2) Boxster Coolant Flush

Hi, I'm looking for step-by-step instructions to flush & fill my coolant. I've seen instructions for earlier boxsters but not the 987.2 and since this is an upgraded engine then there must be changes/tricks to this task as well. I'm looking at you Pelican!! You have how-to videos for just about every Porsche, but nothing for 987.2's.

and how about fuel filter change, that would be great also!! Thanks

Not really, very much the same as the M96. And your car does not have a serviceable fuel filter....

Well, I'm looking for the EXACT steps for my car. Not something "very much the same". I don't want to have to guess at some step or miss something.

Well, we do both systems in the shop on a regular basis, and don't really see much difference between them. But as you seem to want to be a smart-ass about it, I'll just wish you luck.......

What i wanted was a straight answer not a generalization, since "I don't work in a shop" and I DON'T "do these on a regular basis". Your comments did not help at ALL and didn't tell anything of value.

Thanks Brian, but i'm looking for instructions for the 2009-2012, 987.2 engine. Those instructions show that they only cover up to the 2008, 987 engines.
