  1. Update on this fix. All is perfect no leaks and power steering is working like a champ. I needed a win on this pig. Lol
  2. Sorry for the double post. Another line of thought is the pressue sensor or MAF sensors. You can clean your maf sensors really easily with maf cleaner or I just used pure alcohol. When you replace the solenoid n75 valves did you make a the pipes was the correct way round?
  3. If you pull out the dip stick when engine is running what is the result? Lumpy idle, drop in rpm? I tried it on mine and nothing happens. ? !

  5. I've continued to snag and fix pretty much all the issues on my ctt, im left with a stutter at 2k 3k & 4k rpm. Seems to get better the longer I drive ie after 500km was smoother but then I disconnected the battery and was back to a very lumpy low rpm up to 4k then it flies. I decided to pull out my dip stick whilist running expecting a dip in rpm and some lumpy idle but nothing happens. The idle is fine and stable at 500rpm, I know a lot of people with vac pvc leaks have bad idle but not me. So the question is should the pcv system be affected by sip stick out or do I have a leak I d
  6. The AC gas volume is 700grams for non 4 zone and 1050grams for 4 zone AC systems on all cayenne 955. The gauge won't tell you how much gas you have filled and by looking at you low pressure gas gauge it's go too much in it I think. Best to drain the whole gas out and only add the exact amount when recharging. An AC machine would such out the old gas check for vacuum pressure hence any leaks and then re-gas the correct set amount you tell it. Many places do AC repair except the stealer, I would also recommend you take it to one for peace of mind and safety, the gas is not healthy fo

  8. I don't have the original tail lights from the 2008 face lift. I did get some warnings directional light and licence plate too when I did a lot of on off engine trips during a night shift at site. I left the engine running the rest of the night after that. I'm on holiday now so can't try the suggestions you made until July. But I'm leaning towards revision 4 ccm and coding to solve once and for all. On another running related theme, I pulled my dip stick out with engine running and idle did not even bat an eye lid. I was expecting to see a cough and idle dip but absolutely nothing. Could
  9. Sorry that link didn't work but its the solenoid to the left of your throttle body with three pipes attached to it and one electrical connector.
  10. Yes DB Diverter valves, the one mentioned in the link are aftermarket but essentially the same.
  11. Hi guys, My CTT 06 with servotronic rack starting leaking well more like gushing, I felt the steering go weird and knew straight away the fluid was leaking, I nursed it home just before the rack packed up without fluid. Long story short the passenger side seal was pissing fluid out, and the depression set in almost immediately that another huge bill was coming my way after just spending $4000 on head Gasket and other maintenance tlc. So as not to be defeated I check around for a seal kit locally and no body here in UAE would sell me one, only they want to recondition my rack or Porsch
  12. Hi all, My kessy was not working for entry/exit or the Dummy key. I replaced the mosfet and resistors in my kessy and works a treat now. I found only one mosfet was damaged but changed both anyway and 3 resistors which obviously was for the blown mosfet. The key is the drain ie the back of the mosfet soldered onto the pcb, this must be a solid solder sandwich or the mosfet won't work well or sometime at all. I did it 3 times to get it good. You can hear a sound like a crack when the solder is going to liquid and the pressure applied to the mosfet pushing it down with a screw driver to make

  14. It seems this is as good as it gets for the cayenne rear camera l, predominately looks down at the bumper and not a lot else. But now has fixed it's self and pop opens and shut just fine so I'm to leave it alone.
  15. Apparently the mechanism is prone to dirt ingress especially if a grease was used which got dirt in it and makes gummy sticky mess. Try some electrical cleaner around the mechanism and see if it runs freely. If that works then apply a little silicon spray grease to keep it smooth. If the motor windings are causing the heat you may be out of luck and looking for a second hand spare.
  16. Thanks for the reply, the car is due back from the garage after head Gasket job so looking forward to get these other little problems ironed out. I will post what I find and fix. Just out of interest can you take a picture of how far your camera moves out and what picture you see? I see a lot of bumper and alittle tarmac only. Maybe it supposed to be that way? So the only thing not correct is the flap cover is unclipped from the camera surround. Appreciate any pics or info. Thanks
  17. This conversion was done in 2008 by Porsche in Qatar. The full 2008 facelift was performed. They installed a rear courtesy light in pararelle with each tail light to act as resistance. This worked for many years so I'm head scratching where the fault is located.
  18. Hi All Loren if you reading pls reply :) Still having tail light fault warning message, I have the 2008 led tail/brake lights and despite working when I hit the brake pedal the tail light will turn of after depressing and give the warning. Piwis shows short circuit on left tail light, I have stripped and bench test both tail lights and found no issues. I need to check the wiring back along the left side under seat and drivers floor but no idea which wires are for what. I did pull the carpet drivers side and found some previous fiddling evidence. Any body got any diagrams and any ad
  19. FYI the aux pump in inside the drivers side wheel arch mounted the the A pillar so unlike you damaged this on the Engine swap I wouldn't have thought.
  20. I just bought a ctt and had Coolant usage, over heating at idle only, cold heater at idle until revs above 1500rpm and could here water sloshing around the car pipes that run to the back heater. First I changed the expansion cap as it's the cheapest item, then replaced the water pump as this can wear out causing low flow. After this work was done I was topping up Coolant thinking air was bleeding but after a few cold system top ups it was clear I had bigger issues. Suspected head Gasket was confirmed. Now spending a pretty penny on the repair. To help you on this one, first I sugge
  21. Having a problem with rear camera seems to point down at bumper mostly and the cover won't fit or attached to camera which I assume it was supposed to? Occasionally they get stuck against each other and it won't pop open. Anybody have some advise how the rear camera is supposed to look fully open extended and how the cover fixes to it? Appreciate any reply.
  22. 110k km on my ctt replaced with new and plugs (of plugs had seen 80k if the receipts were all true), didn't really notice much change. The old Coils look fairly good so have kept as emergency spare for future. As you will see from my other post I have head Gasket failure hence my hesitation problem is now diagnosed.
  23. Hi guys back again. My 2006 ctt has the 2008 face lift done by Porsche in Qatar for the first owner. The issue is have is lights on no problem but press the brake and the warning comes up "check rear tail light" or sometimes "check rear break ligts". Some background info is the 2006 cluster had all incandescent bulbs but this 2008 has a led tail/brake light combo and a side light led. The others are incandescent for reverse, fog and indicator. Now here come the brain teaser, Porsche charge the customer for two interior courtesy lights which they installed in series or parallel with the
  24. Hi clarksongli Update is head Gasket failure, I'm buying all the parts now from USA and having them shipped over to uae. Quote is $6000 parts and labour but I can get that down to 3500 if I buy the parts. Will also be doing some other PM tasks like transmission service and mountings including the auxiliary water pump. Should be like new after hopefully.
