    They, and the con rod bolts should both be replaced.

    Hi Fixxxer, Save your files as PNGs. Images need not be larger than 1280x720 at 72dpi. Photoshop will allow you to save "small" PNGs. If you don't have Photoshop, there are a ton of free small stand-alone 3rd party applications that will truncate PNGs. Looking forward to seeing your tutorial!

    Resolved - I accidentally installed the flap backwards.

    Probably the battery vent tube. They often get forgotten about when batteries are changed.

    You will need to find a salvage yard for internal light parts as Porsche only sells the whole assembly.

    The diagnosis detects pulsations in the intake air tract from the boost pressure sensor reading. When the overrun recirculating air valve is stuck in closed position, these are produced by the exhaust turbocharger (pumping in the direction of the closed throttle valve). This fault can also occur in extremely cold conditions when the membranes of the overrun recirculating air valves can be frozen solid for a short time just after you start the engine.

    You are probably going to get several opinions on this one. However, since you have to meet the stringent CA emissions requirements, and the cat pipe you are referring to has the pre/post O2 sensors, I would say that you need an OE or CARB certified cat as a replacement. You might be able to find a low mileage used one at a junk yard...DC Autos.

    I agree with Pierre; a large expense with little benefit.

    Hi All, Gona upgrade to a short shifter 99 Boxster. The new shifter has the bend in the shifter leaning towards the driver (L) side. In some pix and videos it looks like it should be leaning to the R side. Which is it.... or is it a matter of preference? Read some threads where you just un bolt it and turn it around. Thanks V

    I am puzzled by your comment - this site has been here for 16.5 years. Or, were you thinking I should be dead by now? Try 9169

    No, you can't switch them. Once the immobiliser code has been programmed into a KESSY/PAS control unit, it can't be over-written with a PIWIS tester. You might want to try an automotive electronics repairer, to see if they can write the immobiliser code directly to the eeprom. I have heard of that being done, but have no experience.

    It is normal to hear more air flow noises with aftermarket filters. You could always test by putting the OEM filters back in.

    I just installed a Pioneer AVH-2440NEX, Metra 99-9604b dash kit and Scosche LPPE15 wiring interface from Crutchfield in my 2005 Cayenne. Absolutely terrific sound. Existing amplifier and subwoofer work great. I highly recommend using their $25 ReadyHarness Service tp pre-wire everything. Like others in this forum, I needed to trim the dash plate to get a nice flush mount. The USB AUX adapter from Amazon fits perfectly in an unused dash hole. Total installation was was less than $700. $350 for the radio and about the same for the harnesses. The Axxess ASWC-1 steering wheel control adapter is not needed. A 3.5m plug on the adapter fits in the back of the radio and gives steering wheel volume and track control.

    You may want to checkout: https://rennlist.com/forums/cayenne-958-2011/1079182-958-gts-transfer-case-rebuild-wish-me-luck.html#post15148042 and: https://rennlist.com/forums/cayenne-958-2011/1080636-transfer-case-teardown-pictures.html We're (Rennlist) hoping for a good DIY with photos. There is another chap there doing his case and he's promised to video it. I would imagine any competent shop would be able to handle it. The failure really appears to be caused by rust in the clutch pack, giving some credence to Porsche's modification of the case vent.. and to change the oil at semi-regular intervals (pretty much settled at 20,000 miles for mine.. the oil is cheap. It's easy to do.) Although this chap did change the chain - he didn't offer photos of the new vs old chain side by side to see if there is any significant stretch.. so I'd be less concerned with that. What it does show is the transfer case is not undersized - there appears to be no notching of the clutch pack teeth or housing which could be expected if it was undersized.

    Just thought I'd come back in and share, the Cayenne is up and running and just started today. I was given the car in February totally free from a property transaction I did with a dealer, they couldn't get it started so they figured it was junk. I posted a list of errors and it gave like 8 pages of errors with durametric which is attached in this thread somewhere, my pit bull nature the fact that as a Christian, the word impossible is foreign to me, I went for it. After reading up on threads about wiring harnesses frying up because of some leakages found in these cars, I accidentally bidded for a complete main wiring harness and had to pay $350 for it, its sitting there and I didn't need it, I thought it had the main unit I needed which was the relay box and harness in the engine pay, so I had to buy that one, not much, under $100 if I recall. While stripping the old one, I noticed that the two front drains had been blocked with gunk, this was the start of the issue. The drains blocked, water filled the compartment till it entered the relay tray and the ECU on the other side and fried some modules in the car. So after replacing the relay tray and harness, fault code drops to 3 pages, showing the engine control module, kessy module and tiptronic module were fried, so since I knew where we were going, I gave the car to my mechanic to finish up. I bought an ECU for £45 it didn't work, so we bought a paired ECU, Kessy Module and Tiptronic module installed tested it a couple of days ago and the engine started right up (See attached video) without a hickup, that's like 5 years or more ago since it started last. Total Spend so far $1000 out of which about $400 spent on parts not needed (going back on ebay). For me it's been the joy of getting another P-Car up to spec from zero another successful project, I'm looking forward to getting everything up and running, thought I'd share this as it may be useful to someone someday.

    The cooler for a Boxster tip is on the transmission. On a 996 tip it is in the front. Your profile says you have a Boxster S. So you would use a 996 tip cover because you have a third coolant radiator in the front.
