Just going off of the factory service manual... obviously the block of wood being the most "special" lol
If I was still turning wrenches all the time I'd probably pick up the Snap-on but to be honest I don't do much wrenching anymore. Do you guys happen to know which if any of the special tools are actually necessary for doing the R&R on the transmission and torque converter?
DGeee replied to robo308's topic in 9PA, 9PA1 (Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo, Cayenne Turbo S)While I've never seen a Cayenne with them I have seen a customers car with them on and Audi and they were complete junk and the ride was horrible from day one. Don't waste your time or money, when it comes to suspension you get what you pay for. I do know a few people who have used kits from this company on other cars with a solid ride and good long term success. Cayenne - Porsche - Street coilovers Kits PBBRAKES.COM
Harbor Freight is great for cheap throw away tools, I also keep a full tool kit in my boat that gets replaced every two years or so since they eventually end up rusty from the moisture. Doesn't hurt tossing a $40 tool kit considering I've spent more on a single tool from Snap-On or Mac in my main box. I got a little worried when I saw this wacky angled ratchet and thought that I might actually need it and the closest thing I could find was a $250 snap on adjustable ratchet. Both of which I'm sure I'd never use again lol
Thank you! I searched all over the place but could't find a direct answer to that question and really didn't want to have to buy a $350 ratchet that I'd more than likely never use again!
I recently picked up another 05 CTT as a (project) you could say, beautiful exterior and interior but it appears to have some neglected maintenance so I'm going through everything to get it back to perfect working order. Of course as luck would have it, it's puking fluid from what I can only guess is the torque converter seal so the transmission needs to come out. I've got it over at a friends shop who has a lift and a large transmission jack which is the only way I'd even consider doing this job. However... I was looking through the factory service manual and it lists a few special tools. For those of you who've pulled the trans how many of those (special tools) are really necessary? A few of them made sense and aren't TOO expensive. My main concern is the extremely overpriced ratchet that attaches to the triple square for removing the torque converter bolts. Is that tool really necessary or will a ratchet with an extended 12mm triple square do the trick? Any other tips would be greatly appreciated!
DGeee replied to DGeee's topic in 9PA, 9PA1 (Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo, Cayenne Turbo S)I've tried it in auto and manual settings, doesn't seem to make a difference. Interesting, I just bought a Durametric tool so maybe I'll see if I can see anything weird going on with that. My guess is it's a sensor of some sort... This is my first P car with computers, my 79 911SC takes about 2 min to diagnose any problem, I definitely prefer the days of manual systems lol.
I've done some searching and can't seem to figure out what's causing the issue with the new to me 05 CTT. The fan motor in my HVAC has a mind of own and I can't control it and it seems to progressively get worse over the last few days. The fan ramps up and down on it's own, full blast back to where its set, in the middle... There's nothing consistent and then it'll work perfectly fine then randomly decide to start moving all over the place on it's own. Any ideas on which components I should be looking at before I just start throwing parts at it?
