  1. 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
  2. I've had to replace the reservoir on my 05 CTT because it was cracked and leaked out antifreeze behind the front passenger tire. It's not a difficult job, and it can be done in about and hour or two. If there's not much fluid left then your fine, if there's alot then either get a big bag or kitty litter or siphon it out. Remove the plastic covers on the passenger side, remove the passenger headlight (you'll need to take out the neck for the washer fluid, and there's a 16mm bolt to remove for the torque strut mount right under the tank), unscrew (at the engine) and take out the torque strut assembly, remove the torx screw that holds the tank on in the bottom, then remove the hoses that surround it and the main hose at the bottom. Install in reverse order. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. You can use the right knob to scroll through the settings and push it to select what's highlighted. After that just push any of the buttons on the bottom to get back to where you want to be. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Best bet is to remove the manifold, I've had to remove mine a couple of times for the coolant pipes and coolant tee in the back. Even with my small hands it was a pain to get back there. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. If you have a scope then you should be able to view it without even taking off the water pump. I remember changing the pipes and I saw a gap in between the intake manifold and valve cover on the drivers side towards the front where I could have snaked my scope in. I'll go back to it tonight and verify but I'm pretty sure there is a gap. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Solved! For anyone who might be wondering the same thing, the headrests fit any cayenne from 2002/3-2010. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Hey guys, I just had a quick question. I have an 09 Cayenne but the rear headrests are missing. However! There are some on eBay for 03-06 models. Are these interchangeable or do I have to get a second generation cayenne headrests? Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I had that problem a few months back, swaped it out and it was fine too. Until now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Dang. How hard was it to replace them? I think I may have found my leak, the adapter piece thats part of the upgrade had antifreeze baked around the seal of it. Granted it doesn't look like that now because i sprayed WD-40 to try to get it out. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. For about a month now my cayenne would leave some antifreeze on the ground, at first it was a little bit but now it's more like a small puddle. Parked it on a hill with the splash guard off and saw that it was leaking from the drivers side rear of the engine. Automatically fearing the infamous "plastic coolant pipes" fault in these, I went ahead and removed everything to see if it has been replaced or not(owned the car for 10 months). To my surprise (and relief) it has been. My question is this, is there any more common spots that it can leak out other than the coolant pipes in the middle of the engine? My car is a 2005 Cayenne Turbo with about 134,000 miles. Thanks in advance! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Yeah it was an easy job. All I did was remove the plastic covers on the passenger side of the engine bay, the exhaust shield is held with one bolt that, once removed, will pull off the clips it holds onto in the bottom. From there I just felt the two bolts (one on top one on bottom) of the plastic flange, if I'm not mistaken they are both either 12mm or 13mm.
  12. I thought so too but when I pulled up the diagram it was listed under : Porsche Cayenne M55.01 Water Pump Thermostat Housing Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I've had the same problem in my 2008 v6. After removing the 2 bolts I saw it had a rubber gasket. Waiting for the dealership to call me when it comes in. (Was the cheapest there) It's technically for the thermostat. It's called a flange socket and sealing ring.

  14. It's an online repair manual. I'm going to try to upload the images here. I apologize of it is not in order, the first 8 pictures are for the heater server motor
