  1. Coolant expansion tank replacement I recently had the opportunity (read need) to replace the coolant expansion tank on my '06 CS Titanium due to the seal leaking. While the DIY write-up on Pelican Parts is certainly adequate I think they have you do more than necessary. So, below are the steps I took to replace mine. Tools needed (may not be all inclusive as I'm doing this from memory): 12mm triple square driver, T30 & T15 torx bits, 16mm (or 5/8") socket, couple of extensions, blade screwdriver 1. Remove the beauty covers over the CET, in front of the passenger side MAF, and passenger side air pump. This gains you access to all the parts you need to remove to get to the CET. 2. Siphon any coolant from the tank. I used a clear plastic tube pushed down into the tank as far as it would go and sucked on it to get it started. Just like siphoning a gas tank (not that I ever did that...). 2. remove the air filter box. a. remove the filter cover and filter. This requires disconnecting the cover from the MAF b. remove the air box. This is held in by one bolt at the top front and two pins on the bottom. It takes a little effort to disconnect it from the air inlet and maneuver it out of the space. 3. Disconnect the torque arm at the frame mounting bracket and loosen it at the engine mount. This has a 16mm bolt and the 12mm triple square bolt. With it disconnected at the frame mount and loosened at the engine you can swing it out of the way. 4. Remove the torque arm frame mount bracket. This has two 16mm bolts. One near the engine, one at the back that is reachable with a socket and rachet. Pelican calls for removing the lamp assy, but this is not necessary at all. 5. With the torque mount bracket out of the way you can now remove the CET. Remove the hoses attached making sure to catch any additional coolant that may come out of the main hose and maneuver the lower (main) hose up and out of the way. 6. Remove the CET by pulling it forward and up. It has a mounting channel on the bottom that you have to pull it out of. 7. Assy is the reverse. Once I was done with the installation I put in about 2 quarts of coolant to top it off. After driving it for a day I rechecked and added just a bit to bring it up to max as it had bled down to min during this time, which I expected it to do. Here's a link to pics. http://s1172.photobucket.com/user/tjrobinson2000/library/Porsche Cayenne Unfortunately the pics I took are all 4mb or larger so I can't upload them directly.

  2. The jack points under the covers on your side valances are for the jack supplied with the car. They are not for using a floor jack on, if that is what you are thinking. I've used them for brake pad replacements or anything else requiring wheel removal.
  3. Thanks for the input. I'll try to remember this if I have to do it again. I ended up towing it to an indy german car shop that has done it before. Couple of hours of their labor to finish my work and a reman starter and now it finally starts like it always should have. Too bad the dealer that did the coolant pipes couldn't be bothered to go ahead with the starter (or the owner chose not to which is also foolish). Only $476 total. Not bad IMO.
  4. I need some help. I started replacing the starter (intermittent no/weak cranking) and have everything apart, but cannot see a way to get the starter out past the coolant pipes (they are the metal upgrade). I'd really prefer not to open the system since there are currently no leaks and I don't want to induce any leaks or have problems with air in the system.
  5. Sorry for not replying sooner. The car is running as it always have, which is to say fine. I'm keeping the old coils since they all look fine. Will toss the plugs.
  6. 2006 CS Ti. Approx 130,000 miles Recently the CEL came on. My OBDII reader showed misfire for all cylinders (this was on a cold start, so not warmed up yet). Previously it had shown misfire in the ready list so I figured this has been intermittent for a while although the car has been driving fine. No issues with power, hesitation, fuel mileage, etc. So, I went ahead and ordered the coils and plugs and changed them today. Every coil looks perfect. No signs of cracking anywhere. The plugs also looked absolutely fine. What I'm figuring (hoping?) at this point is the coils themselves are failing. See the link for pics. The service history I have shows these were changed at 102,000 miles with the 002 part. The coils I installed are 012. Not sure this is going to make any difference but time will tell. See coils and plugs here.
  7. Does this fix apply to the '06 CS as well? I've been having intermittent problems with the passenger seat airbag not being on with someone in the seat and recently the airbag fault light comes on everytime. I don't have a durametric, but do have an OBDII reader yet no codes come up.

  9. Good to know. I'd think then you'd be able to tap into the output of the front sensors for your AFM meter.
  10. Can you post a picture of your camshaft tool? It would make it easier for anyone that may need it to copy it. And interesting thread. I think I would have removed the oil cooler right away as that is the easiest and least invasive task (I'm a big believer in going for the simplest possibility first).
  11. I suspect you have to install a separate wideband sensor. Although I'm not an expert I expect these cars use narrowband sensors.
  12. Where is the tutorial? I don't see any write-up. Am I missing something?
  13. Hi, New member and new Cayenne owner. Came across this thread while searching differential and transfer case fluid options. In case you didn't know, there are short head allen key sets. Just FYI
