  1. Hi, old post but did you to route any wire from the back of the car up to the radio in the dash? Also, I take it that the XM retrofit was a relatively plug and play experience for you and everything is working?
  2. ere is my 955 Cayenne Turbo Coolant Tees (or Ts) DIY Tutorial to help those tackle this in the future. First, you need to remove the intake manifold. There are several DIYs on this. It also helps to remove the secondary air injector pump on the driver side. You will see why below. You can remove the entire Tee assembly in one piece--only 4 points need to be unclamped. I labeled these points A,B,C, and D. All 4 points required me to razor the rubber hoses to remove them. Cable operated hose clamp plier is definitely required to do this job. It is also a good idea to remove

  4. Clarksongli, I am pretty impressed that you were able to figure out how to remove the turbo without dropping the engine. Kudos to that. What was going on with your turbo that prompted you to undertake the removal? Now if SpawnyWhippet can get a DIY together.
  5. I don't think the waterpump's impeller actually split off from the shaft, but rather the composite material of the impeller wears down overtime, thus reducing the flow of coolant moving through the system. Typically a tell tale sign of this is coolant temperature pegging past middle of gauge. (could also mean thermostat is stuck closed) The next time you have your belt off, spin the idlers and feel for smoothness. If you have what feels like sand in the bearing, then it's time to replace them. All pulleys should spin with buttery smoothness and be silent as a whisper. The belt tensi
  6. Yikes, hope it's just a cracked ducting. I can't imagine how the turbo would crack, and would probably be the 1st time I heard about this on a Cayenne if it was the case. But with today's Cayenne's racking up mileage, I guess anything is possible.
  7. Typically, new expansion tank will come with a new radiator cap. If you plan to keep the car for a little longer, I would consider changing the expansion tank and thermostat. I may looking into a starter rebuild if you are having starting issues. Might not be necessary to do anything with starter if you have no problems with it, and since you are well-versed in removing the intake manifold in 1 hr, then it shouldn't be an issue when it needs maintenance. I would probably change the coolant vent pipes (948 106 026 04) since you are already in the area. When I did both of my tees,
  8. why did your air injection impeller break apart? Was it due to the deteriorating foam filter in the air injector?
  9. gbratk, can you hit the highlights on the procedure you went through to DIY your motor mounts? What did you have to remove? Any tips? Thanks
  10. Is this a tell-tale sign of anything? When I insert a cd into the dash of my 05 CTT, the PCM acts as if there is no CD in the unit. I can't even eject the CD unless I do a car restart and hit eject before the PCM loads. Anyone had this problem? Maybe it needs lens cleaning? CD changer and everything else on PCM works fine.
  11. Climate control is turned off before shutting the car off, but every time I restart the car after work, it turns back on automatically. I observed this after the car has been off for several hours. The interesting part is that if I turn off the climate control and turn the car off for a brief period of time (less than 10 minute), say for example, for filling gas or running into convenience store, the climate control stays off when restarting the car. Is there a way to permanently keep the climate control off instead of always having to manually turn it off after startup?
  12. Thanks for checking. I have that clip too, but it does not work. I'll just fabricate something to get the cover to hold.
  13. not 13. I am trying to attach 11 to 15. Appears there needs to be a special clip of some sort.
