  1. I have started to tackle some PM tasks on the Cayenne which leads me to the question above. Going to be cleaning the sunroof rails (not seals) and re-lubricating them to keep the sunroof operating smoothly for as long as possible , so what are people using to re-grease the clean rails as the proper Porsche part number is discontinued and a Google search returned allsorts of various snakeoil lotions and potions. Some say grease / some say PTFE spray / some say leave them dry - the workshop manual states to use grease and where to use it. Was looking at the V
  2. Never considered seal restorers , dont think it would have helped with my leaks as the sump is sealed with gasket silicon and the drain plug needed a new crush washer. From what i have read the leak from the bellhousing is caused by a fault during engine assembly , so no amount of leak stopper will cure that one. Funny how in certain parts of the world this is repaired under VW Dieselgate extended drivetrain warranty but here in the UK we are left to fork out the £5 -> £9k ourselves ?? K
  3. Lots of info on the web regarding Cayenne oil leaks , just off to try and address the issue(s) on mine. There seems to be a couple of places it leaks from , sump plug / oil pan to crankcase joint and from the housing around the flywheel (bellhousing in old terms) Mine is leaking from the sump washer due to it not being replaced at the previous service and also from one area around the sump. Bad news is that if it needs the sump resealed properly or the bellhousing leak repaired properly then it is an engine / gearbox / subframe out job that runs into many
  4. Finally got the modification complete , couldn`t bring myself to part with almost £600 for just the clock then having to faff around wiring it into the car so i purchased a genuine panel for £100 + vat then got myself a 52mm clock from a company called R-Spec as it matched the rest of the dash (black / white /orange pointers) and made myself a stepped stainless steel bush to fit it to the panel. Not full factory spec but to the untrained eye it looks ok , plus the hands shouldn`t fall off 20200712_075501 by Kenny Niven, on Flickr Kenny
  5. That is perfect , many thanks. As you said the 2" one will be too small meaning i would need to make an adaptor spacer to take up the difference , the 2 5/8" (67mm) looks like it will be too large to fit into the bezel so i can rule that out as i am not butchering a new (expensive) panel. Thanks again. Regards - Kenny
  6. Morning people , yet another question. Going to fit an analogue clock into the factory dash enclosure designed for the compass / stopwatch etc. So before i purchase the dash panel i need to find out what size the hole is that accepts the gauge so i can order one that is the correct size. They seem to be available from Speedhut in either 2" or 2 5/8" sizes. So if anyone knows the size of the hole in the panel or the outside diameter of a genuine gauge it would be good to know. I dont want a genuine one as the hands seem to fall off , no point in having a com
  7. My faulty one is on the drivers side (UK). Just been having a look through a US dealers (Atlanta) website and have just came across the very parts drawing you have posted. Mine is a `13 model so i dont know if the ones from 11/16 >> will fit , the one shown looks similar to the VW ones but not the same as the one shown on P85 of the parts drawings : 2010-16 Cayenne - LIGHTS.

  8. Just an update , the little LED is not available on its own even though the part can be removed easily from the door trim . So if you want a flashing LED it only comes with the door panel at £1200 + Vat (20%) , i dont think i will bother. K
  9. It does , many thanks Looks like a door panel off job to investigate. K
  10. Evening people , first question as a first time Porsche owner and hopefully a simple one. Before i take the drivers side door panel off to investigate should i have a flashing alarm LED on both front doors as only the passenger side one is flashing when i set the alarm ? Thanks in advance , Kenny (2012 ,Cayenne)
