  1. Reviving an old thread here. My power liftgate gradually sags after opening. Does anyone have a diagram of the parts for the power liftgate? I looked in PET, but it doesn't show the system in it's entirety, only the power part or the non-powered system. I suspect that the hydraulic motor and piston ( which is on the driver's side) acts as a helper to the primary lifting struts... I have no noise from the hydraulic motor and I am hoping that the primary struts are just worn out. Anyone have experience with this? Incidentally, I am not throwing any codes on the Durametric. Cheers, TomF
  2. Thanks for your reply. Yes, if you wouldn't mind digging for it, that would be great. I need to be able to tell the dealer or indy just where to look. Best, Tom
  3. This is a cross-post for the Panmera forum as there is very little activity over there... I am in the hunt for a Panamera Turbo and I am wondering if there is a way to read from the ECU the number of launch control events that have occured. I would like to find a vehicle that has had none at all if possible. Can the dealer read this or is it not even recorded? I know that there is a record of the number of launches on Mercedes launch-controlled vehicles. TIA Cheers, Tom F

  5. Thanks. I will check for the code again today and see what comes up. IIRC, if the sensor goes bad, the CEL will come on and that hasn't happened. Cheers, TomF
  6. Trying again. Forum was having issues this morning...triple posting and no pic... Anyway, this is the error code that I got this morning... any thoughts? Cheers, TomF
  7. Thanks all. I just had to use the procedure above and was able to push over the solenoid. It is really hard to see, and it requires the screwdriver to be very small with at least 3" inches of length. Go in from the center into the u-shaped slot and then move the solenoid shaft towards the passenger side. Now that I have done it once, I could do it again in 30 seconds. Cheers, TomF
  8. I replaced my center bearing with the Vertex solution. About 90 mins to do, including repacking the bearing and my guibo and shaft looked new. I am very impressed with the engineering. This was at 67k miles on my '08 CTT. Nearly 3k later and I have no complaints at all. The CTTs seem to fail earlier because of the increased loads on the drivetrain. Cheers, TomF
  9. Resurrecting an older thread here. Keep in mind that the many of the bluetooth mObridge units can also stream audio via BT. Just because there is no cable doesn't mean you don't have one installed. Turn on your BT phone and see if a mObridge unit comes up as discoverable. Cheers, TomF
  10. Does anyone know if this procedure can be used on an '08 Turbo as well? Great write-up BTW! Cheers, TomF
  11. 2008 CTT. Thanks Loren! Best, TomF
  12. Thanks for this! That is exactly what I need. The part is only about $5 in Germany, but pricey here... Best, Tom
