  1. 2006 Base model


    In December when I changed spark plugs and ignition coils, there was oil on both. I figured I'd go ahead and replace the valve cover gasket and spark plug gaskets. Now that the parts have arrived, I'm ready to tackle the project. Instructions are from ALLDATAdiy.com. I'm attempting to remove the intake manifold to gain access to the cylinder head cover. Their diagram on the left side of the attachment shows an Item #3 that needs to be disconnected. To me, it looks like the item in the picture on the right. (This line seems to go around the back of the engine to the driver's side and terminates somewhere near the brake booster.) I tried several different ways to get this to detach, but only succeeded in cracking the white plastic collar. Two questions: is this the part in the diagram AND, if so, how does it detach?


  2. To remove the white plastic part on the headlight harness (#19 left side), you have to pinch the tops of the connector toward the center and wiggle it free from the plastic tray. It is also connected to the wiring on the other side via a socket (#19 right side). I removed beauty covers from under the hood and opened the air filter housing on mine to gain more access to the space, but mine is a 955 Base V-6, so yours may have a different layout. I also had to use a file to shave some of the plastic tab on the underside of the headlight to gain the leverage needed to seat it all the way back into the newly installed headlight harness using the headlight tool.

  3. Pelican Parts has a really good write up on this (Rear Window Switch Replacement). It was the first repair I ever did on my Cayenne. You can remove the trim pieces off of the inside of the rear hatch and gain access to the guts of the hatch release. This should let you know the scope of the work. It sounds like you may be able to get away with splicing wires, but replacing the entire switch is not too difficult. The part runs in the mid-to-high $60 range.
