  1. So a note, always spend the little bit extra to replace the wear sensors. I could not figure out a way to remove them from the old pads without them cracking.
  2. Thank you very much, looks like I will be buying a new torque wrench today. I have one that goes to 150 and another that is for large equipment.
  3. What is correct torque for front and rear calipers on a 2012 Cayenne S with silver calipers which has 360mm up front and 330mm in the rear? I have looked and see specs for the earlier 955 Cayenne and the 2011, but I think something changed in 2012. I see various info, and it looks like maybe it is 200 ft lbs up front and 133 in the rear but that seems high so I was wondering if someone has the repair manual to confirm?
  4. Good thing you found it. I knew someone that screwed up the bolts (was not a cayenne) and narrowly avoided a disaster. I also encountered a truck rim rolling across the interstate directly towards me, just down the road was the truck of course with no rim or tire. He said he had just had new tires put on, guess they didn't tighten them.
  5. I plan to put on a front and rear set of TRW ceramic pads and will post my results here. The reviews for other applications seemed very good overall.
  6. Moving forward since you have an 06 you would want to post in the 9PA section, this is for the 92A model years. Just FYI in case you do not get a response next time. I also agree on testing the battery and connections especially if they have never been replaced.
  7. I got the factory kit installed and they look and function perfectly as they should. Although not cheap I highly recommend them.
  8. Thanks. That is what I arrived at so I decided to suck it up and buy the factory kit. I thought a bulb was a bulb as long as it was not can-bus, but not so fast. So as a warning to anyone else thinking of it, be advised to not mess with anything other than factory no matter how high the quality.
  9. I think I will just buy the factory kit and install them, looks like they have some type of circuit resister in them, probably for this very issue.
  10. I just noticed that one of my door edge lights does it too, just one. I am wondering if it is because they are not drawing enough current?
  11. So I replaced all my bulbs with Philips LED, this is on my 2012 Cayenne S. All of the w5w bulbs (194) went great and are the same white color as the original LEDs that came with the "comfort package". That being said I also replaced the rear hatch ceiling light which is a consumer replaceable standard 43mm festoon bulb. I also used the Philips vision line but for some reason that one light will emit a very dim glow after all other lights have dimmed to nothing. LED lights do not by nature emit a glow after shutting off and I have not ran into this before. Here is what it looks like and another shot at the end showing it on full blast so you can see it is far from on. It never gets any more dim, so I removed it in the meantime. And here it is on regular brightness for reference.
  12. I guess I don't need to know as it must not have blown and only timed out at what seemed like the perfect time. I would like to know where that fuse is, but it is not pressing. I do have a weird phenomenon going on where a bulb is staying ever so dim even when all is off. I will start a different thread.
  13. They all seem to be on the same fuse, but I cannot find it in the manual and I tried testing each one and they all seem good. What is the obvious thing I am missing? I definitely blew a fuse, when I was changing the bulb (don't ask) I just cannot find the sucker.
  14. I bought directly from Duratech so it is authentic. They are also trying to help troubleshoot but to no avail.
  15. Still not working, deleted and reinstalled to make sure most recent version. Just gonna have to get my money back I guess, just stinks because at an almost 5 hr round trip to the closest dealer my resets will just have to wait. Any other tools that anyone has found to reset service and oil reminders?
  16. Since ebc does not make red stuff pads for it as they confirmed, and nobody has any feedback on these I guess I will keep looking or wait it out.
  17. EBC confirmed they do not make red stuff for the 12 Cayenne, only the yellow line and they were not certain the numbers they gave me were an exact match. Guess I will keep looking for another brand.
  18. Now it is past due and it is acting the same, stating it reset on the computer but it did nothing and shows due in 0 miles still.
  19. The interim service is not past due and it says it is resetting it but it does not. I still get the message at startup and shows 0 miles to service.
  20. That was one of the first I considered but I do not see an application for my 2012. Plus oddly enough it states not for trucks or SUVs yet I see the first gen Cayenne listed. I will call them but I cannot find a set for it.
  21. In my search for ceramic brake pads for my 2012 Cayenne S with regular rotors I can only find one brand that sells both front and rear, well two I guess which I will explain. The main one I am looking at is a ceramic set from R1 concepts I found on Amazon. Here is a picture, has anyone used this brand either on a Cayenne or even in general? Also I found a set on brakeworld.com, a brand called Disc Italia and they have mixed reviews for the brand itself. They seem popular with Range Rover owners but not good experience with BMW if I recall. If anyone has bought this brand ceramic pads I would also be interested.
  22. That's a resounding no. I am going to post another thread asking for more specific feedback on what I actually found.
  23. I would like to switch to ceramic brake pads and am fine keeping my stock rotors, this is on my 2012 Cayenne S. I am having trouble finding a brand that sells both front and rear. I see a brand or two that will list a set for one or the other which I think I strange. So has anyone found a good brand for front and rear specifically on the 958 S? I know the names of all the top brands, but what I am interested in is what is available for the 958s specifically as I am coming up with very little with no real prospects.
