RFM replied to fruit678's topic in 9PA, 9PA1 (Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo, Cayenne Turbo S)This is the dryer element of the airconditioning, the cooling water radiator is placed last of the package of radiators and has no filling cap.
PDCC reservoir also has a built-in filter, that's the reason.
RFM replied to 9552T500's topic in 9PA, 9PA1 (Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo, Cayenne Turbo S)It seems that the collector, where the brushes run on, is completely worn out. Just replace the brushes will not have much effect.
RFM replied to Goldlake80's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)You will need a PIWIS or similar diagnostic tool to reset the code, airbag codes and other safety items, can't reset manually.
RFM replied to Raylev911's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)If the car is equipped with a Tiptronic gearbox, check the vacuum operated cooling watervalve to the Tiptronic heat exchanger. The membrane wants to leak vacuum after a while, such that the gearbox is always cooled instead of periodically when necessary, therefore the engine temperature remains too low. Follow the water pipes, from and to the exchanger, and you will come across the valve.
RFM replied to leonidasb22's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)The bolts are pressed in, you have to burn them red hot with a welding torch, and than tap with a hammer if you do not have hydraulic press. When using a hammer you have to remove the lambda probes, they can easily fail by the vibrations of the hammer.
RFM replied to USMC9953's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Defective engine mounts can also cause annoying vibrations and noise, it is worth checking that too.
RFM replied to rlg4675's topic in 9PA, 9PA1 (Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo, Cayenne Turbo S)The fluid line runs along the right-hand side in the roof covering to the rear, then to the middle, in line with the nozzle. The most rear part of the roof covering must be removed to fix the problem, the fluid line jumps off from the connector to the nozzle, usually due to excessive pressure caused by partial or complete blockage of the nozzle. Beware of possible water damage to the electronics inside the lower rear space.
RFM replied to dphatch's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)Usually it is the return spring that operates the rod between the inside door handle and the lock mechanism that has been broken. You will have to remove the door lining to restore it.
RFM replied to sprocket's topic in 9PA, 9PA1 (Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo, Cayenne Turbo S)It may be that the wiper mechanism is stiff, try manually with disassembled wiper motor.
RFM replied to mocohead's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)This is difficult to define without audio clip, but if the vibration noise is barely audible outside the car and well audible inside the car, are the engine mounts suspicious.
RFM replied to spooltime's topic in 9PA, 9PA1 (Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo, Cayenne Turbo S)In full agreement with "ekstroemj" prices in general are also higher as well.
RFM replied to ekstroemtj's topic in 9PA, 9PA1 (Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo, Cayenne Turbo S)That's more than double in consumption, in this case the engine should run badly and smoke like an old school diesel. Are you shure there is no leak or the fuel disappeared, by circumstances, in an other vehicle? With M.S. in the background i would pay attention.
