ttocs replied to dammad's topic in 997-2 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S, Carrera GTS, 911 Speedster)Looks to me that the brake light is misaligned as well. It looks to be a smidgeon "forward" at the top in relation to the quarter panel, as well as the engine cover being a tad "aft". Smidgeon and tad are both very technical terms, whereas forward and aft are simply nautical.
Thanks a99C4tip for posting the link to Eriksson Industries. Good to know another source for Tip parts. I didn't see anything listed for trans fluid so here's what I did when I changed my fluid. I bought Pentosin's ATF1 for my 2004. The data sheet for ATF1 says that G052162A2 is the VW/Audi OE number and the fluid is listed as being Amber & Clear in color. I purchased Pentosin ATF1 in 5 liter containers from a local CarQuest auto parts that always has some in stock, they sell quite a bit at this location. Buying from a Porsche dealer will cost a bit more even when you use your PCA Member discount, but then there's the peace of mind thing if there's any doubt in your mind.
ttocs replied to ILCUL8R's topic in 9PA, 9PA1 (Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo, Cayenne Turbo S)Excellent news! Earlier this year I had a noise that wasn't always repeatable. It only happened on very hard right bends, like on on-ramps to highways. Mine might be a lesser version of what yours was. I had concluded that my noise was just reflected sound. But now . . . . might be worth checking into further. Thanks for posting this!
I got the following numbers from a 2004 Porsche Katalog. When I searched using one of them it came up with a part number and shifter linkage kit which superseded the number I searched. The part number that came up is: 986-424-041-10 In the Katalog it's called "joint rod adjustable". 986 424 931 05 986 424 931 06 986 424 931 07 See also: 986.424.041.07 986.424.913.06
ttocs replied to Jerry609's topic in 9PA, 9PA1 (Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo, Cayenne Turbo S)I see. Good luck with the new one!
ttocs replied to Jerry609's topic in 9PA, 9PA1 (Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo, Cayenne Turbo S)Have you tried more than one CD?
ttocs replied to ILCUL8R's topic in 9PA, 9PA1 (Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo, Cayenne Turbo S)Along with what wizard is suggesting, do you use the hand brake? It's worth operating it - gently - at low speed as just a "what if" to see if it produces the noise. Otherwise, maybe check the wheel bearings.
ttocs replied to ChrisTsangaris's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)JFP is very wise and has provided sound advice. Frankly, from my own experience and of those I know personally, JFP's advice is conservative - in every sense of the word - as it relates to Tiptronic maintenance. And please be sure the service is done by someone with Porsche Tiptronic experience and using Porsche recommended fluid, not something that is "like" the recommended fluid.
ttocs replied to ChrisTsangaris's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)How many miles on the car? How many miles since last trans fluid/filter change?
ttocs replied to TheSavea911Project's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)The term "worth it" is determined by each individual taking the time to decide. From a purely educational point of view, your project can be considered the ultimate opportunity in Porsche related learning. Then there's the monetary side which is tightly wound together with how much DIY and donor parts with which you're willing to work. From the photos above it looks like you are really making some great progress!
ttocs replied to gti16vtech's topic in 9PA, 9PA1 (Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo, Cayenne Turbo S)himbinboe, just to clarify a little, does the car start and can the shifter select a drive/reverse gear? If not, then it's got to be linkage. If yes, then the path you're on seems correct.
ttocs replied to gti16vtech's topic in 9PA, 9PA1 (Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo, Cayenne Turbo S)himbinboe, have you checked your battery voltage? If you review the 3rd post above you will find that the battery was a likely fault. Low voltage can cause weird problems. On my car a slightly undervolt battery caused my Tiptronic to go into limp mode while driving.
ttocs replied to E. DM.'s topic in 9PA, 9PA1 (Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo, Cayenne Turbo S)My guess is windshield washer related. edit: the 7L5971204 is a part number for 2007-2010 Cayenne.
ttocs replied to Johnny-5's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)I've done a lot of work on cars way back when, and I do most of the work on my 986, but I had the IMS done by an independent shop. The labor was about 2-1/2 to 3 times the amount of what the tools would've cost. For this operation having a warranty was a major deciding factor, especially when weighed against the possible savings available. The "might as wells" included the AOS, RMS, and Trans Fluid/Filter. Also, when a LN Engineering approved shop does the work, they check first to see if the engine is "qualified" for a Retrofit bearing, thus securing the warranty. Lastly, the bearing choices from LN at the time I had mine done were the Single Row Retrofit or the IMS Solution, and I went with the Retrofit since it was about $1,000 less. Anything other than a plain bearing is a maintenance part - it'll need to be done again in the future. Knowing what I know now, I would've gone with the Solution.
