  1. Dealer took care of recalls and stated further diagnosis would be needed for the headlamp alignment issue. At first the service writer stated I had to replace the headlamp, when I balked he said he would ask the technician doing the recalls. I asked if the headlamp couldn’t just be put into proper alignment using the hex screws on the side of the light, but they are looking to hit me up just for Connecting the PIWIS to the car- probably because In 14 years I’ve only gone to them for recalls and an occasional part.
  2. I bought a used spindle off flea bay, had a new wheel bearing pressed in it, had it installed, and had an alignment all by an indie. Had the dealer pick it up from where my wife works, they left her a 2018 Macan, they did the airbag and fuel filter flange, and they delivered it to her the next day. Clayed, compounded, polished, and waxed the car, followed by an hour of cleaning the interior and conditioning the leather, runs and looks great. 100, 758 miles on her, going to swap out the head unit with a Pioneer w/ navigation and put in a backup camera.
  3. When I start the car I get the headlamp adjustment error, and when I shut the car off the headlights make noise like electric gears having trouble adjusting the headlamps. I have the lights delayed 15 seconds after locking the car. I pulled the headlamps because I needed to replace my cornering bulbs and inspected the wiring inside the housings. Everything looked fine in one housing, and the other looks has a broken wire with white material insulation. 2006 V6 Cayenne Bi-Xenon headlamps Help?
  4. Unfortunately, brake caliper bolt repairs use the largest heli coil and time sert, so no can do.
  5. Doing the front brakes on my 2006 V6 Cayenne with 205k mi. the caliper bolts on the driver side took a lot of strength to lean on a breaker bar to get them out. Both holes needed to be re-tapped. On the top hole the threads came out with the bolt. On the bottom hole I was able to re-thread the hole with a tap and it holds the full torque of 200 ft. lbs. On the top Hole I couldn’t re-thread it so I went with a time set kit. Unfortunately, the time sent is a little loose in the hole. Obviously, I screwed up. What can I do other than replacing the whole knuckle? I don’t know how to weld. I was thinking of cleaning everything up with denatured alcohol and trying JB Weld to hold/weld in the time sert, but I am unsure if that will work. I can pick up a knuckle off flea bay, but that means I need access to a press, which I don’t have. I can’t drive anymore due to medical reasons, but my son could use the car for the winter instead of his GTI which is a sled in the snow. My son can’t wrench to save his life. Yes I know about anti-seize, and I thought I used it. The caliper bolts on the other side of the car came out without damaging the threads, maybe I forgot yo put anti-seize on the caliper bolts on this side. Either way, I need help. The stealer will want around $500 for the knuckle, and probably another $800-$1000 for labor. Then there are the parts they will say that they have to replace to do the job to their specifications. I expect them to do press in a new wheel bearing as they should. That’s a lot of money to put into a car that’s almost 14 years old considering that if it gets into an accident the insurance company will total it and give me next to nothing, and I just put new front discs and rotors on the car. Suggestions?
  6. Ok, I started squeezing it like a teet on a cow and water broke through. Now anyone readiy this post knows where it is.
  7. My passenger/right side sunroof drain is filled with water. I’ve tried the Weedwhacker line twisting spinning with the Terrel etc. have gotten past depends into the connector but then hit a wall. I’d like to go from the firewall up to the top with the sunroof training starts but I can’t find out where it is in the firewall. It looks like it should be that nipple in the bottom photo, but there is no hole in it for the water to exit. I really need to find this and be done with it already. I tracked it from the bottom of the eight pill or two behind the fuse box but after that my fat hands can’t reach it to follow it anymore.
  8. ... and if I start running short of wire what kind of wire do I solder in to replace it?
  9. Checked all the fuses, but will look at thise other spliced wires. The strands of the black wires in the picture when cut back are very grey.
  10. ... and how do you remove the 433 relay under the seat? I want to test it without breaking it.
  11. 2006 V6 Cayenne 100k mi. My car died at the train station but my son was able to jump start me. I drove the car home and it hasn’t started since. That was May. I did a lot of reading on the forum and I pulled up the drivers carpet and the padding was wet, so I unwrapped the wire bundle, opened all the doors and windows, disconnected the battery, hung the carpet from the steering wheel and let Mother Nature dry the car out. The ends of the spliced wires were heavily corroded so I cut them back a little and rejoined them. After doing the wires my brake proportioning and lock fault messages disappeared. The lights, radio, a/c all work, but I hear nothing else- silence from my dead car. I checked all the fuses- right and left sides, and under the hood. The ground connection is fine. The 5A fuse under the driver seat is fine as well. The car didn’t start so I hooked up the Durametric: Vehicle Electrical System- 907 fault. Gateway- 532, 1314, 1321 So, I pulled the battery and the parts store exchanged it because it had a dead cell. It was getting dark out, and dinner was getting cold, but I put the battery in place and connected the cables. Lights, radio, a/c all work, but car still doesn’t start. No bad starter sounds, nothing. I can shift into neutral like normal. I cleaned up the cowl area and the drains are now clearer, checked my A/C drain and it’s clear. The passenger front sunroof drain has some water in it and I cannot pass a line from my weed trimmer/whacked all the way through- I took off the wheel and removed the wheel liner for full access. I tried sucking out any blockage with my shop vac to no avail. 2006 V6 Cayenne
  12. What do you have to do for the mute and scan? I don’t have Bose or a PCM and I am the original owner so it wasn’t changed. How does the Scosche dah kit look? I’m also looking at the AVIC-8201NEX. Which backup camera did you get? Where did you mount it? Does it have dynamic lines for parking? Do you have a picture(s) of the install of the head unit and camera mount? I’d appreciate seeing it. Thanks!
  13. I’m going to start by Isolating the left from the right and take it from there. I will post when I solve the problem.
  14. i went to go figure out why the button on the rear glass doesn’t work, and once I took the cover off I saw both wires broken. Rear hatch does open with key fob. Remove wiper and unit and then what? It looks like the wire broke really short, but I can’t tell for sure untilI get the rear wiper off the shaft and then remove the nuts on the unit inside? Am I close? What if the wire is broken at the actuator? And how the heck do you get that particular wire connector apart??? thanks.
  15. Has anyone come up with a solution? I just started getting this message myself- except it goes away immediately and doesn’t show up on the information menu . I have 0 warnings, yet each day it is now doing this. Dealer said I probably need a new headlight assembly for $1300 (part only) because the motor for the headlight alignment is in the headlight assembly. He was shooting from the hip- too busy to check it with the tester. Only problem is that my Xenon headlight assembly isn’t $1300.
  16. Contrary to advertising BS, just pumping freon into your system is not a good idea! You need to have your system evacuated, oiled, and then recharged. Return the junk kit and get it done right. I don't want to pay either, but I'm bringing my car to the stealer for this exact service in a couple of days.
  17. Interesting. I am hearing what sounds like an old diesel sound which sounded like it is coming from the transaxle, but my car has been doing it for a while and when it was checked on PIWIS at the dealer there were no faults found. I just changed engine oil and transfer case oil, along with fluids in both differentials, and am at a bit of a loss.
  18. I called Hawk and they offered to give me LTS or Ceramics to replace these lousy HPS pads
  19. You state that you headlight has a hole in it, but we're the electronics actually damaged? Is it possible you only need the housing? If so, you can get off cheaper.
  20. I went to the Hawk HPS and now regret it. I am thinking of taking them off and going back to stock.
