The only fault picked up (which I knew about anyway), whe Autofarm serviced my car last week, was a malfunctioning interior temp sensor - reading too hot, so cabin blower always running cooler than should be.
I did see that someone had managed to remove and repair/replace the sponsor.
Could someone pint me in the right direction to who could help/advise?

Cheers

I'm interested to hear about this since when I set my internal temp at 22 deg C and its cooler outside, it doesn't particularly blow warm air until I turn it up to 26C or more......could this be the same sensor problem?
And if so is it easily fixed? Question

Yep, sounds like the same symptoms, put the heater on high and it will blow hot air.
I hope it's a relatively easy fix, no dash out job!

ill start by saying im not sure on this , cant remember the last time i looked at a fault like this but ill say what i can ..

i thought the sensor was in the heater control panel and behind the grills there , there should be a fan behind it to draw air over it which can stop working i guess .. they do on a 996 anyways .

design 911 lists it as this part but in a different place ..

https://www.design911.co.uk/fu/prod12459/Cabin-Temperature-Sensor-Porsche-Boxster---Cayman---996---997-1H0907543A/

i think i would ( in your shoes ) remove the heater panel and have a look .. are the sensors similar .. its yours full of dust or is the fan not working .

Untill i get one in to have a play with then theres little i can say for certain im afraid.

It's definitely that, Autofarm checked all flaps and fans are working.

Did you get this part changed? was it an easy job....e.g. could the interior centre grill be taken out? It would be nice to know f I need to do mine , thanks.

If I remember right one of my other cars had a similar issue and when they looked at the temp sensor it was chocked with fluff and crud that it had drawn in which obviously acts as a bit of a blanket so the sensor thinks it's warmer than it is. If it's any consolation my Gen 2 is exactly the same, set it at 22/23 to get what I normally get in another car at 19, if the sensor is part of the heating control unit then it should be just a case of removing it and in the first instance seeing if it can be cleaned of it's fluff.
After that I think it would have to be removed and sent off to someone for repair (winter lay up job), if it's a gen 1 you could get new heater controls if the others are worn.
On the Gen 1 it's the little grill between your two sets of buttons.

Thanks guys,

No, not done anything yet, off to classic Le Mans and the first couple of stages of the TdF next week, it can wait as I don't think I'll be needing any heat!
Thanks for the thought about the dust & crap around the sensor, when I get back, I'm going to give that a go.

I'll report back then
