  3. Good day. I have a 2005 Boxster CDR24 model - BE 6645 serial - 55010603
  4. Had codes read and it pointed to low voltage issues, as I said previously battery was replaced by Porsche last July. Put the battery on charge for 3hrs, starting voltage 11.4 volts and when charge was complete it was 14.4 volts. Started the engine and hey presto no 4 wheel drive system warning alarm which would confirm that it's voltage driven. This only started a week ago during the cold nights, I don't use the car every day and when I do it's only for short journeys. What's the way forward with this, should I buy a maintenance charger like a CTEK for example to use when the car is sat idle or is their another way?
  5. Reminds me of a neighbor I had as a kid, he was always yelling at us and we kinda hated the guy,, He would work on a Old Jaguar in his driveway,, when he went in the house we'd toss a bolt or nut under the car.. Yep we were kinda evil brats back then.. 😄
  6. The fact that the noise goes away when you move the pedal does indicate the Throwout bearing could be involved,, YOu probably need to get it in the air and use a stethoscope on it.

  8. Hi. I drive a 2007 3.6 base model with a black and awkward yellow LCD instrument panel model. (Non - US ) I desperately would like to convert this part to the one that you can see in the pic- the one with the huge color display in the middle. As I googled them they come from 955s. Would this color lcd fit to my Cayenne? Any programming or something required? What should I look for if it does fit - like a year or part no etc? Should it be from the same year Cayenne? There is the only one available in my country that I can find this part online on a website like eBay and the guy selling this claims that it would fit my vehicle. I would really appreciate some help. Tapatalk kullanarak iPad aracılığıyla gönderildi
  9. I'm getting the codes read tomorrow, I will report back afterwards.
  10. Hi guys, I am really in a need of help from you guys on the issue that I have with my 2004 Cayenne Turbo. I really love the car and it drives like a dream...until suddenly: Noise from front RHS (driver's side) developed. Clicking noise could be heard and felt vibrations for all speeds, regardless of RPM...the vibrations is like riding the car on railroad tracks when reach 40mph. What has been done: 1. Replaced Lower Control Arms (RHS & LHS) 2. Reconditioned front CV joints (RHS & LHS). 3. Replaced front final drive bushes 4. Drained and replaced front final drive oil 5. Tyres are balanced and aligned. Checked the following: 1. Cardan shaft - carrier center bearing still good with rubber bushing intact (no cracks) 2. Sway bars bushings are good, gave it a good wiggle to check on conditions. Solid pieces Please see my video on the car's noise and symptoms Thanks a lot for your time and hope you guys could advise me. https://youtu.be/6miCEEuV-Xg

  12. The booster should have a check valve ,,, now ON my jeep when it died it made a guinea pig whistling noise..
  13. "Can you give me a code for my PCM? These units are manufactured jointly by Siemens and Becker, and the only place where you can get the codes required is from the dealer/ OPC. The PCM’s require two codes, the ICS/Siemens code, and a Becker code. The ICS is the first code requested. Sorry, the only place you can get a PCM code is from a dealer/ OPC."
  14. kbrandsma...is the car a tip? If so, any work done on the tranny? joe...the bolt shown now for that application is threaded halfway. OP has one with only first quarter threaded, but...
  15. Last week
  16. I would stay away from the single mass flywheel for several reasons. Noise and chatter are problematic on the street, and both Porsche an a renowned Porsche engine builder had recommended against using them unless the engine's rotating mass and the single mass are dynamically balanced together. People tend to forget the dual mass is the ONLY harmonic dampening device in the rotating mass, removing capability that can take you to places you don't want to be. The upgraded clutch is also a toss up. For heavy track use, it may have the advantage, on the street, not so much. We have had customers run factory and replacement factory units with excellent street drivability and very long lives. The BBI slave is another questionable. Yes it changes the clutch pedal feel, but installations have be problem prone, including premature failures which the manufacturer continues to write off as due to the wrong fluid being used. But multiple cases have shown that to not be correct. As for your IMS bearing, while they are inspecting it, have them remove the rear seal so it can mist lubricate. We have many running this way with no problems.
  17. Hello all, I've got a 2008 997 C4 w/ 56k miles on it. It was cold this morning (30 degrees F) and I noticed clutch slip for the first time since I bought the car in higher gears under full throttle. The clutch pedal feels very mushy and lost alot of its spring on the return. I stopped by my local shop and he confirmed its the clutch. The car is my daily driver but I do autocross about once a month and intend to track in the future. I told myself I'd get the light weight flywheel when its time to replace the clutch, and so it seems that time has come. I'm not adverse to the extra noise of the LWFW, but I've heard that you shouldn't do this mod on a C4. I see sharkwerks has a C4 project car with the LWFW so I assume it worked out, but who knows. Aside from the flywheel obviously I need a clutch. I've been looking at the Sachs stage 2.5 performance clutch kit, and it seems like a good option. I've also heard that the BBI clutch slave cylinder is an upgrade that would be helpful for clutch performance and feel. Questions: -Anyone have any experience with a LWFW on a C4? -Anyone have any experience with the Sach's stage 2.5 kit on a C4? -Any other clutch kit recommendations? -Anyone have any experience with replacing the clutch slave cylinder? Note: I'm going to get my IMS bearing inspected but if its not leaking I think I'm going to pass, seeing how I have 56k miles on it with no issues. Perhaps its past the infant mortality stage? Thanks, Jim
  18. Welcome to RennTech! Beautiful looking car...….good luck with it.
  19. How about #3 here Brake Master Cylinder Brake Booster Pre-charge Pump WWW.AUTOATLANTA.COM
  20. There is a vacuum line to the brake booster right behind the firewall. Have you checked that? Might be a bad seal or something. See #10 here Brake Master Cylinder Brake Booster Pre-charge Pump WWW.AUTOATLANTA.COM
  21. Hi..I live in rainy Ireland and this has been a real problem in my 996 Cab. I brought your water drain diagramme to my garage and they removed the interior side panel to find an easy solution. A number of drain tubes collate into a collection point like a mini funnel which had built up a pot of sludge and water could no longer flow through same and out of the car...so diverted to the back foot wells. Who thinks up the stupid systems??
