  2. I also went with the roller bearing. RND retrofit in my case. Time will tell if we made a good decision, but I think a car with a lot of miles on it and the original IMS bearing will likely do fine with pretty much any new bearing you use. The LN "Solution" is clearly the superior approach. It was not well advertised (or, in my case, understood) when I did my retrofit.

    Hi, I got a Porsche Boxster 2002 recently and disconnected the radio to try to test an after market radio, and need help with the radio code. Type : CDR 220 Model No : BE 4462 Serial No : Y5047237 Any help would be appreciated
  11. Welcome to RennTech The Durametric software (enthusiast version) will allow you to reset your transmission adaptation values once the problem is corrected. To reset the transmission adaptation, it would be listed under the "transmission" section in the main selection tree on the left, then either under "commands" or "reset". To my knowledge, disconnection of the battery will not reset this.
  12. Hi, Hello all, I am new to this forum and Porsches all together. I recently acquired a 2004 Cayenne S that had a paid-for warranty and later found invalid when I took the vehicle in for transmission problems. Warranty company said 'after further research' we discovered this car to be a (roll-back) vehicle. Nonetheless I now have to either replace the trans or rebuild the valve body and possibly replace the TCU myself. The needed work comes from the Porsche's dealer's service evaluation. Luckily, I can personnally do a valve job with no issues however I do not have the scanner/software that Porsche would use to tell the TCU to 'relearn.' Porsche will gladly hook me up for $200+ the cost of towing (45 miles). It's close to the same cost with other non-dealer service shops. So I have come to the forums to learn and seek help. After joining and search this forum for topics specific to mine I found this post. Otherwise, I have not found a forum discussion that speaks to this specific subject. Hoping not to get flamed for posting too soon, I offer up a couple questions for the gurus. Please feel free to email me or post with your responses regarding my inquiry. Question 1: Is there a aftermarket software/scanner that can reset my 2004 Cayenne S. transmission's TCU once I have completed my valve body rebuilt? Or, am I stuck taking the vehicle to a dealer or service center with the proper Question 2: In hopes of skipping all of the above, is it possible to manually make the TCU relearn; such as battery disconnection? I would be very grateful for any information you have on this from anyone in the know. Looking forward to your input. Respectfully, 4CYNNES.
  13. Let me give it a try. Was under the impression that both the amp and the CDC required removal of panels and is not fun.
  14. The info shown above by Joe is good. Since you have an '03, there's a fuel line quick connect around the top of the coolant reservoir. Just squeeze the grey tab in (you may not see it since it's behind facing the front of the car) and disconnect. Then you can measure the flow. You can also make an adapter to measure the pressure. There are also two brass caps on the fuel rail that you can remove to do the same but I do not recommend removing those as I had a bad experience getting them resealed when reinstalled.

    Hi Guys, new to this site and the Porsche life just got a Porsche Boxster 2002 with the radio requiring a 4 digit code serial number is 15005907 type 4462 Can anyone please assist as it would be appreciated thanks
  19. You will need to get to the primary cable on the starter; depending upon how the vehicle is equipped, that can sometimes be done without pulling the intake. You are going to need to do a visual to see if you can get access.
  20. Your lobe wear does not look out of the ordinary. Cams are made from cast iron, and develop a shine or wear pattern over time; as long as there is not a ton of ferrous grit in the sump or oil filter, you are good to go.
  21. On yours is it just back in the right rear cubby hole? If it is should just be a 10mm socket to get 2 nuts off and take the whole bracket out or tilt it down enough. There should be a power connector and a MOST connector to it.
  22. I finally replaced it with the NSK cylindrical bearing. After ~500kms, not problem so far. The original bearing was dual roll and they are still in great shape after 160K kms.
  23. Hello All, I changed out the old dried out valve cover gasket on my 2006 Cayenne S. I took some pictures of the cam, and noticed some interesting wear around the tip of the cam lobe. Would like some input or comments regarding the wear. Does this seem normal for a 2006 Cayenne with 195K miles? Thanks in advanced...
  24. Can i check voltage at starter without taking intake manifold off ? batreries are proper voltage amd CCA i am getting a loud click from batrery discharge relay which is at the second battery in cargo area beneath the sub woofer . That battery is new as well.
  25. Last week
