  2. Just need a clarification please. Did the trans operate normally prior to fluid service? The only LED that is flashing is the one for "D"? Will it still select Reverse and move in Reverse?

  4. I'll try and make a very long story as short as possible. I'm three mechanics in and still haven't solved it yet. I've searched extensively and come across many similar issues but not the same combo of issues I'm having. 2006 CTS w/110,000 miles, no major issues before this. I'll start with this: is there any related wiring, control modules, fuses, etc/whatever, between the headlamps and the rear upper center brake light? Also possible the driver side horn, which also isn't working? All these things seemed to start failing around the same time. I'm getting the dipped beam warning on the driver headlamp and the brake light warning for the center upper rear brake light. They always seem to happen around the same time. Mechanics have ruled out bulbs and plug/outlet contacts, those seem to be fine. New battery and alternator is good- both tested and no issues. I replaced both headlamp mount trays with new ones myself, that stopped the headlamps from coming loose over bumps or potholes. That used to happen and I thought that was the only reason I would get dipped beam errors. I would go over a bump, I'd get the dipped beam warning, one or both headlamps would stop working and sometimes I could get them working again just by turning the headlight switch off and back on, but usually I would have to stop, get out of the car and physically push them back into place, and then they'd work again. Now, only the driver side headlamp will stop working but no correlation to rough road or bumps, and pushing it back in doesn't fix the problem, only turning the lights off and back on again will do it. Anyone have any experience with this combination of issues? Really appreciate any help.. Thanks!

    Homelink LED Not Working?

    I was never successful in removing the fuse - It is a difficult thing to accomplish without moving the airbox. Good luck
  10. Welcome to RennTech More than likely, the grey fluid is the give away. You had a lot of metal debris in the old fluid, so you probably have something more serious going on inside.
  11. Hi I am new here. I recently bought a 1998 2.5 Tiptronic Boxter, 80k fsh with a gearbox fault.It has no forward drive in "D" but it will select and move the wheels in reverse. I have correctly replaced pan filter and gearbox oil to temperature and topped up. It was dark grey when drained. I have used a Mac tools diagnostic scanner to check and clear codes, but none were present. It flashes red in "D" on the dash and no gear selection light is moving up or down on dash using tiptronic steering wheel shifter? Any suggestions greatly appreciated. Thank you Update, just been selecting gears while on diagnostics and sometimes it now does go in gear but still flashes red and no gear selection light on tiptroninc. I am thinking its a micro switch in the gear shifter gate? Also scanner says its in gear while in N {but no forward momentum} and 2nd in D with temperamental movement in gear?

    Power Seat Issue

    I'll look this weekend and see what I can find. Any tips on getting the seat out without motor operation if needed?
  24. Note: Part numbers sometimes change without notice. Always double check with your supplier that you have the latest part numbers. Parts you will need: 1 ea 948 107 222 00 60 Oil Filter 1 ea 946 107 322 75 Oil Filter Housing O-Ring 1 ea 900 123 152 30 Drain Plug Seal 9 ea Mobil 1 0W-40 or equal Tools you will need: Tire ramps or jack T20 Torx driver Trim, panel tool 8 mm Allen wrench or Allen hex socket Oil filter wrench with 36 mm cap socket Socket wrench 9-quart oil catch pan Torque wrench Note: If your car has Air Suspension and Level Control - then before jacking the car switch it OFF. 1. Raise the front of the car (both sides) using a jack and supporting with jack stands. 2. Remove the engine cover. 3. Remove the oil cap and inspect the o-ring on the cap (replace if torn or damaged). 4. Remove the underbody engine cover. 15 - T20 Torx screws (items 1 and 2) and remove the 2 - expansion rivets (items 3) (using a trim tool is the easiest for these). 5. Remove the drain plug and drain the oil. 6. Remove the oil filter canister using the 36mm cap socket. Then remove the old oil filter. 7. Clean the filter housing with shop towels, as well clean the drain plug put the new crush washer in place. Clean the filter canister and install the new o-ring (use a small amount of new oil to lube the new o-ring). 8. Re-install the oil filter canister with the new oil filter inside (some pressure may be needed to push the new filter over the engine mount). Tighten the canister to 19 ft-lb. Re-install the drain plug with the new sealing washer and tighten to 33 ft-lb. 9. Add 8.45 quarts of new oil. Refit the oil filler cap. Re-install the engine cover. 10. Start the engine and let it idle for a few minutes while checking for leaks. If no leaks then shut off the engine and re-install the underbody cover (yes, all 17 fasteners again). Lower the car and remove the jack stands. 11. Use a PIWIS 2 (or PIWIS 3) to reset the oil change reminder. A few other Porsche specialty scan tools may be able to do this now (or in the future). Note: If your car has Air Suspension and Level Control - then switch it back ON. That's it you are done.

  26. SOMETHING I FORGOT TO POST, the way we figured out the inner bushing was bad was the exaggerated wear where the seal goes, even though our converter had some wear where the seal rides, we polished it and with the torque converter being held steady again it hasn't leaked in 35K miles (this was about 5 years ago).
  27. Hi, I have run into this issue, we had a local aerospace machine shop bore out the torque converter and press in a bronze sleeve. Then honed sleeve out to original size, and off you go. The reason this one failed, someone replaced the transaxle and didn't notice one of the locating dowels stayed in the old transaxle, the result was a repeated failure of the torque converter seal and damage to the bushing. This repair worked well for us, but we did fab a custom plug to keep all those nasty machine shop bits out of the torque converter, autos are VERY cranky when filled with lots of small, hard debris! Good luck
