Porsche Water Pump Replacement
Here's the water pump replacement on a 1999 Porsche 911 996. The Boxster
986 uses the same water pump but has a somewhat different layout and
procedure. Sorry for the shakiness. I didn't have a tripod short enough for
under-car shots, so I was one-handing it while working. I also apologize
for kind of skipping over the entire reassembly process, but we're limited
to 10 minutes, and it's just the reverse of the disassembly. I backed my
car onto ramps for this to give myself additional camera clearance, but
I've also done it with the car on the ground. Visit renntech.org for great
DIY instructions and tips to complement this video.

2005 Boxster IMS Bearing Install
Installation of the LN Engineering IMS Bearing in a 2005 Boxster 2.7. Note
that the installation tool is white. That is frost from the tool and
bearing after it emerged from the freezer. It is chilled in order to
shrink the steel to allow easier installation.
The IMS Solution
The IMS Solution is the only permanent solution to catastrophic IMS bearing
failures by the complete omission of the problematic single row ball
bearing. The IMS Solution fits model year 2000 through model year 2005
engines with the single row bearing IMS. The IMS Solution does not fit
models with a dual row IMS bearing or the model year 2006 or later type IMS
bearing. For more information visit http://www.theimssolution.com

The Direct Oil Feed (DOF) for IMS Bearings was designed and developed by
The patent-pending IMS Bearing Direct Oil Feed (DOF) kit for all MY97-08
Porsche water cooled engines (excluding GT2, GT3 and turbo models). The IMS Bearing problem that is
existent in these engines is due to the lack of proper lubrication to the
IMS Bearing. This kit is not a DIY installation, please consult with your
local Porsche shop for installation.
