  1. Sorry I was not clear. The drain tube (usually a rubber hose) should be right under the firewall or just a little further back towards the center of the car. Yeah, I meant passenger side of the battery.
  2. Two things to try... 1. Find the A/C condensation drain tube under the car and pass a stiff wire through it to make sure it is not plugged. Also, have a look at the drain just the left of the battery (in the front trunk) and make sure it is not blocked either. 2. To get rid of the current odor... get the car fully warmed up (or hot even) then open all the windows and turn the heater up all the way (blower as low as it will go). This heat will kill the stuff growing in there. I tried this on my wife's Jeep when the A/C condensation drain on it plugged and it worked pretty well. If you
  3. Yes. 996 511 011 02 has been the same front hood on Boxster and Carrera from the first production through today.
  4. Yes. The rear has drop links also. Unlike the GT3 they are not adjustable.
  5. 996 512 988 00 Spoiler It is held in place with double stick tape so you only get one try to get it right. My Nov 2003 price list says (are you sitting down?) - $364.86 (retail).
  6. No not really. The industry wide OBD II codes are supported by many generic scan tools... but the Porsche proprietary specialized codes and programming interface in the PST2 can only had in that device. BTW... a PST2 can be purchased by independent shops for about $8000 plus a yearly subscription to software updates for another $2500/year. Also, Gert wrote a message a few weeks ago about Porsche switching over to a new device. Gert's message
  7. The price includes the connecting cable.
  8. This is what I use on my laptop. Nothing fancy - nothing expensive. $122 Car Code OBD-II
  9. Is this the standard cap? If so try 996 361 505 11 9A1.
  10. PST2 is the Porsche Diagnostic and Programming tool.
  11. Yes, just ask your dealer to turn on the OBC using his PST2. Temperature display is the default so even if you don't have the stalk to control the other OBC functions you will still get the temperature.
  12. Yes. I have installed these on a friends car and they work fine. PSE does not change any of the geometry, if they fit your current muffler/rear bumper then they will mount the same way on the PSE.
  13. Can you tell me a little more about what it would include?
  14. 986 552 995 09 designates a rear center console painted to an external color... so you would need to specify color (this is the same as factory option XME). Likewise the 000 044 802 25 kit (I believe) specifies ash tray etc. in arctic silver as it is a Tequment package.
  15. It's the prewired phone connector. Brown = Ground Red / Green = Switched 12 volts Green / Black = Unswitched 12 volts Yellow / Black = Telephone Mute (Jeff's pic)
  16. A little more info.... The MY03 Cayenne's (until April 28th, 2003) all had Auxilary Batteries and TSB 1/03 2706 describes how to install it. After that Porsche moved the Auxilary Battery to an option status (Option J2C) for MY04 cars (TSB 2/03 2706). So the good news/bad news is that if you have a MY03 you likely got the 2nd battery included and the MY04's will only have it (and the wiring harness) if it was ordered as an option.
  17. 1. Lever off locking button with an a hard plastic tool (to prevent scratches). The locking button must be pressed so that the pipe section can be inserted between the shift lever and the locking button. To do this, turn the ignition key to "1" position. 2. Remove the compression spring (1) and spring clip (2)and pull off the selector knob. Install is the reverse. Make sure you fit the conical compression spring with the small diameter facing the guide peg.
  18. Yes. You use the complete tailpipe from where it attaches to the muffler pipe. See my PSE install here
  19. Sounds like MAF sensor to me but it would be nice to know what the codes were.
  20. No, not for the new GT3 at this time. You could go the route that rockitman did (Europipe muffler/race cat) here
  21. Parts are $1558.80 (see Porsche Parts at Dealer Cost above). If you just install the mufflers (open all the time) you are looking at about 1 hour labor. If you install all the electronics and vacuum stuff then it is an additional 5 to 9 hours. Porsche quotes 10 hours total in the their install TSB. Here in Calif we (unfortunately) expect to pay $80 - $100 (USD) per hour for labor.
  22. Umm... I think they want the speedometer A wire which is used by all Porsche Nav systems. I don't know the color code on the Cayenne but it comes directly off the instrument cluster.
  23. With all due respect I really don't think you want to take the dash out... (Jeff's pic)
  24. You care to share any of that info? While my own troubleshooting would lead me to agree with the technicians diagnosis that the bleeder seat is damaged, it would be interesting to know if the TSB pertains to the slave cylinder componet or elsewhere in the system. While I believe the dealership will now be resolve my problem, a TSB that affects the slave cylinder might help him cover it under warranty and lessen the possibility of hard feelings towards me for making such a big deal over my situation. Depending on the model year there are several "clutch squeaks". Most are pedal or pedal
