  1. yikes, how sketchy. In the event of a rear end collision, the rear seat back is very likely going to fly back snapping that tiny little metal bracket, possibly sending the rear seat occupants out the back and into the grill of the vehicle behind. To put it bluntly, if you do this you could cause the death of your loved one or passenger.
  2. View this tutorial 955/957 rear seat latch replacement I believe it's a fairly common issue, but granted that I've only been around these Cayennes for a short while. Failure modes: 1-Unable to release latch to tilt seat-back forward, failure to unlatch. 2-Seat latch fails to secure seat-back in the upright position, failure to latch For me, I was running into failure mode #2. When pushing the seat-back up it would not latch no matter how hard I tried. I sourced a new-used replacement from ebay. The parts be

  4. I've started looking into a small lift of my '09 CS that does not have air suspension. So far the only info I've found is from our friends on the VW side of things. People are either installing a spring spacer (reducing shock compression as it is pre-loaded all the time) or some had experimented with a spacer on top of the strut assembly. I say "had" because as far as I can tell there's nobody doing this anymore. I'm looking for maybe 1-1.5" so that the CV's stay happy, nothing crazy. That paired with some slightly bigger A/T's will do it for me I think. Anyone here
  5. If this were a Honda Civic, sure, paint them while still on the car... For a Porsche? Do it right please. Take it apart properly, disassemble the calipers down to their bare components, powder coat instead of paint, and reassemble with new seals. Install with new bolts. This, of course, means that you will need to bleed the brake system after reassembly. If you're not going to do it right, please don't do it at all.
  6. Just wanted to share with the group, hopefully it will help someone. I had been getting a warning on my dash "Check dynamic cornering lights" with no specification as to right or left. Both bulbs worked fine. On inspection, it looked like one had it's little reflector cage intact (sits in front of/around the bulb) while the other, at first glance, didn't have one. Once I looked a bit more I saw that it did have one, but it had dislodged on the last bulb change and had apparently wedged itself in one of the cracks that opens up when the auto leveling headlights move aro
  7. Hi all, new here. Great page and I'm happy to contribute some funds to help keep it going. Hoping that the rest of you do too. My apologies if it's a stupid question... I found the TSB page on here for my 2009 Cayenne S, but can't see how to actually view the TSB's. I can view a general name or title, and the TSB number, but that's it. Am I missing a button somewhere?
