  1. I just got a Durametric, enthusiast version (which I confirmed will do coding on the 955) and was looking at the Tiptronic coding. Mine is currently 12328 and the options given are xx0xx RoW/US or xx2xx for Asia. Has anyone else here checked this on their cars and seen something different? I did a search and google found one for a user here, but it takes me to their profile and I can't find the post. User is stutzchris, iirc. There seem to be some other issues that I'll have to take up with Durametric like not being able to communicate with certain modules and no backup/restore option und
  2. 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
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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 th
  8. 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.

  10. Good to know. I'd think then you'd be able to tap into the output of the front sensors for your AFM meter.
  11. 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).
  12. I suspect you have to install a separate wideband sensor. Although I'm not an expert I expect these cars use narrowband sensors.
  13. Where is the tutorial? I don't see any write-up. Am I missing something?
  14. 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
