  1. If you don't see any grease on the hinges that could help in make it difficult. It only needs a little grease but definitely needs it to help open and close easier. Some silicone spray would help in the longer run, wd-40 is good but doesn't last as long. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. It's tough for a moment but then they spring open Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Yes it is. Since your parked it is reading very little fuel consumption, therefore showing very good fuel economy. If you have the navigation option, you can also see it there when you hit the trip button on it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I thought the same thing when I first used mine. As long as they are properly in the locking slot on the tracks then your good. Make sure the key tumbler is in the right position (unlocked if I'm not mistaken) and push it closed. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Yeah, if your car does that intermittently then it could mean it's on its way out. Possibly meaning the valve is getting stuck every so often and about to crap out all together. But if it were to fail fully it just means the hesitation will happen more often and maybe a little worse as well. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Sometimes with that code it's the purge valve/vent valve under the hood right next to the throttle body on the drivers side. By the fuel rail. Those are somewhat know to fail. That and pcv diaphragm on drivers valve cover Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Any check engine light on? Any vacuum leaking noise? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Under the drivers and passenger footwell. Under the carpet it tends to collect water from the drain pipe if it's clogged. My friends 09 cayenne would start intermittently and after buying a new battery we checked under the carpet to find out there was alot of wiring submerged in water. Drained,dried, and dielectric greased it and started no problem. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Water intrusion could be the culprit as well especially if you run the A/C quite a bit. And it wouldn't hurt to get your battery and alternator tested since these vehicles rely so much on the electrical system. Any auto parts store should be able to test them for free Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Doing that every couple of months helps to keep it properly adjusted since it's fully electronic Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Turn the key all the way on without starting it, wait about 30 seconds and if you have your hood open youll hear some noise coming from the throttle body, it's self adjusting at that moment. Turn the key back, take it out and then back in, start it and your done. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Also never hurts to clean the throttle body and do a throttle body reset as well. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. It's a common thing that really sucks. The antenna for the remote transmitter can't pick up the signal from far away, sometimes not even 5-10' away from the car. If you do a search on the forum you can find more info about it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Mr.Flip

    The 2018 Challenge!

    1. About the mirrors, if you can get a small dab of silicone adhesive on the inside of it, that should hold it nicely and won't harden up too hard to where it'll break if it needs to be taken apart again. 2. It's possible that the motor that controls the up/down movement has gone, but sounds more like a blown fuse somewhere that is preventing it from getting power. 3. There's plenty of good aftermarket stereos : Kenwood Excelon DNX893S, Pioneer 5201 NEX, Alpine W960. All of those have GPS Navigation as well. 4. Sounds to me like the ducts have been removed or broken behind the dash, by the center console area, it could be something simple that the previous owner forgot to do maybe when they were changing the cabin air filter. And there is a recall on the transfer case computer/motor. Give the dealership a call and see if yours qualifies as one of the cars with the recall. Mine doesn't unfortunately so I have to fix it myself. Good luck! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I had a similar problem with my 02 boxster, turned out to be the O ring in the bleeder valve on the reseviour. I found out when I took the cover of the reseviour off, drove around, and parked it. When it started dripping on the ground I looked and saw it was from there. Dealership had the 2 o rings (one big, one small) for less than $4. Took it apart and turns out that the big O ring was tightened so much it ripped. Replaced and drove fine for a year. Leak happened again and it was the same o ring. This time I put a thin layer of silicone on it and it's been fine ever since! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
