  2. Looks like you are missing some pieces. What year? Also, can you zoom out in your picture? What does the other side look like? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  3. Today
  4. I sent you a PM.
  5. Hi! What is required to open TSB 9679? Homelink. Thanks
  6. I would say that is one of those plastic rivet fasteners rather than a screw.
  7. I've been scouring all the parts diagrams I can find, but I can't figure out what the appropriate screw / mounting hardware is for the front splitter/spoiler/lip (http://www.sonnenporscheoemparts.com/auto-parts/2002/porsche/911/turbo-trim/3-6l-h6-gas-engine/body-cat/bumper-and-components-front-scat #12). There are two screws in the wheel liner and I'm missing one (see pic) Is it this? http://www.sonnenporscheoemparts.com/porsche/911/99907306102/2002-year/turbo-trim/3-6l-h6-gas-engine/body-cat/structural-components-and-rails-scat/?part_name=rubber-strip-screw&recommended=1
  8. hi; i assume you have resolved the above related issue; i had the same issue what chassis failure light coming on; would turn it off and the light would go out yet maybe a month later come back on; did it for about a year; i did have a lowering module in it; took it to dealer and they said that i had blown out both front air bags; spent $5500 repairing to two; week later the same issue again; went back and they figure out maybe the lowering module was bad; sent module out and tested and no issue; had another place install the module again and found a loose wire/pin so seems that something was coming loose causing the light; havent had the issue since.
  9. I have read that after flushing coolant system or losing and replacing all the coolant the 996 engine can develop air pockets which result in overheating in those areas of the engine. The 3.6 apparently doesn't likke being run hot. Sent from my SM-G925V using Tapatalk

  12. There is a TSB about the transfer motor going out. Maybe it's what happened with yours: 3 19/10 ENU 3978 Mar 26, 2010 Transfer Gear: Servo Motor and Control Unit (19/10) Model year: as of 2003 up to 2010 Vehicle Type: Cayenne/Cayenne S/Cayenne GTS/Cayenne Turbo/Cayenne Turbo S Equipment: Porsche Traction Management (PTM) Concerns: Servo motor and control unit for transfer gear. Information: - Display in instrument cluster: "All-wheel drive system defective", - Fault code 2033, 2039, 2041, 2042 in transfer gear control unit. This is caused by overheating of the servo motor in the "Low Range" driving program afier driving long distances due to a fault in the transfer gear control unit. As a result, the fault codes specified above are entered in the control unit. A modified transfer gear control unit is installed since October 30, 2009. Date of Introduction: October 30, 2009 Action Required: In the event of a complaint, replace the servo motor and install a new control unit.

  13. Lift up the driver side carpet check the wiring harness bundle for broken, corroded wires and bad joints both soldered and crimped. If the carpet is wet you will need to find the culprit for that as well to prevent further issues. Sunroof channel holes front left and right alway block on mine with sand from Desert climate but also evaporator drain can block and drip AC water into foot well. Loads of threads about this ...........
  14. Hi all, My 2004 Cayenne 9PA 3.2 has suddenly developed a fault. It started by saying "four wheel drive error" on the dashboard and shortly after "ABS failure" followed by "PSM" failure. The centre console four wheel drive system switch (behind the gear change) is also not working (LED light not going on if the dial is moved). I changed the battery with a brand new one, top of the range and went to my local friendly Porsche mechanic who run it through diagnostics, cleared codes and they popped up back again which he then attributed to an electrical fault in one of the cables. As he is a mechanic and does not cover electrics he suggested I find a specialist that covers electrics. I checked all the fuses and they look ok. The car drives ok but when started it seems like it is trying to lock the wheels (like when in the past the PSM would engage). Any help? I have a tester so would not mind checking continuity of ground points etc, but rather than taking the whole thing apart it would be great if any of you has a suggestion - which would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance, Alex
  15. Thanks for the info. I'm trying to access your photos from your previous post but cannot see it. Do you know how I can see those pictures? Thanks.
  16. Try 9216
  17. Try 8680
  18. Hi; I have a 1997 bagged and slammed Boxster. I removed the battery for winter storage and now I can't find the radio code. Can someone help? CDR210 Model R2896 s/n V5007619 Thanks for your time
  19. Please try to check this thread and decode the reason behind the blinking warning light. If the reservoir is full, the radiators should be full too, unless you got air trapped in the system. Any recent work on the engine?
  20. Sorry. Uh, a 996. Convertible. Manual box. 2001. Are not all 996s not the same in terms of those two wiring connectors?
  21. Second Owner of a 1999 Porsche Carrera 4 and after having it painted found that they unplugged the battery and now the radio won't work and I do not have the radio code. Porsche CDR-220 Type-4462 Serial Number- X5023520 CD-CDP2065 48/98 Please Help
  22. Thank you Ahsai, coolant level in the reservoir is showing full, but i dont think its full all the way to the radiator, and the rads fan is working, I think needs to be pressure test
  23. Thanks JFP, I will do that this weekend i hope--
  24. Try 5675
  25. It is always helpful if you tell us the exact year and model of the car.
  26. CDR 220 serial # X5029097. Need a radio code please . Thank You, Howard
  27. Yes, the servos can be replaced without removing the dash. You will have to go from underneath the driver's side dashboard and remove all the electronics in the way. Not bad, just time-consuming. VW/Audi parts should work but I'd recommend ordering a set of 958 motors and doing all of them. It's cheap enough (<$100) and not something you want to do again.
