Yes, I bought 2 cam sensors but replacing the passenger side did the trick. The check engine light i turned off with the durametric and it hasn't returned. Although when i hook it up to my computer the P0011 code is still there but does not turn on the check engine light. I recently replaced my valve cover gaskets and may have bent the wheel that the sensor reads off of? But no light means i'm good as far as i am concerned.
No screws that I remember. Just clips holding it in place. Get a long flat screwdriver and pry it at the base of the clips. There is a wire connector. But you shouldn't have to unplug that. Might be helpful to get your fingers behind the door seals. This is for a early cayenne.
I just changed my Bank 1 sensor. Cleared the codes, i'll drive the car tomorrow and hopefully the codes will stay away. Start to finish it took me 1 hour. Could have been 45 min if not for my neighbour wanting to borrow tools. Ok 55 min. It is really hard to take a picture of the sensor when it is in the engine. I could barely see it let alone get the iPhone in there. I took off the air pump like the original post. But i also took off the bracket that holds that on. Not sure i could really get to the sensor with that in the way. The bolt that holds the sensor is in a really precarious spot. My "E" torx socket is 3/8" and kinda tight to get in there. But you can get away with using a 8mm 1/4" socket. The bolt doesn't have to be screaming tight. You will need a M25 triple square and a 16mm socket to remove the top engine mount. At least loosen it and get it out of the way so you can remove the plastic engine beautification panels. Reverse is the same as dissasembly, I didn't lose any bolts or tools in the black hole today but i wouldn't attempt this without a good magnet to hold the bolt and tools. Last picture is how i was able to use the magnet to line up the bolt. Then used the same magnet to hold the socket to line that up. If the light stays out i don't think i will replace Bank #2 sensor. Didn't look over there to see if it is even possible without the removal of the intake.
Check engine light is on. Used the durametric to get the codes. I just did change the valve cover gaskets not too long ago. Not sure if that would be related. Where do I start?
seafeye replied to Tropicalspam's topic in 9PA, 9PA1 (Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo, Cayenne Turbo S)I have a kenwood in my Cayman. I just grounded the wire that was supposed to go to the parking brake. Best thing i did was replace the radios in both my Cayenne and Cayman. Look up the Dynavin for Cayenne. Gives a great stock look and is comparable with the bose.
I have the same issue with my 04s. Passenger rear door. Did you find a solution?
Try google: Devon Flexane 94 for prices. Here is the link to the manufacturer: http://www.devcon.com/products/products.cfm?family=Flexane®%2094%20Liquid This should be better than the original. http://www.renntech.org/forums/topic/10005-boxster-engine-mount-replacement/
We used to fill the boxster engine mounts with a liquid plastic to fill the void. Seems to work better than the original rubber porsche used. The part will reduce engine vibrations and help with smoother acceleration. The torque will be transferred to the transmission rather than twisting the engine block.
seafeye replied to Jcayennes's topic in 9PA, 9PA1 (Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo, Cayenne Turbo S)I just redid mine. Opted for the black alcantara. Got the pillers and handles from a wrecked turbo. ($499) including sun visors. Then had the main piece recovered. Cost around $1500 including parts and labour. Not cheap but a dramatic change for the better. I think if you were to do just the main headliner you could get it done for $500. The material comes with the foam backing. So you have to scrape all the old stuff off. This is a DIY. But for the extra professional look Id rather pay to have it done.
Do you have the owners manual? You do have to do a certain procedure to get the car out of low gear. If not, i have attached the reverent pages.
If you have time maybe you could do it and submit a DIY here for the renntech viewers? http://rennsportkc.com/porsche-cayenne-spark-plug-replacement-rennsportkc/
Oops i didn't get it from here. Loren please remove if not appropriate.
Maybe i will get in trouble for posting this….but i found it online and is good reading. This should explain how the Cayenne Air Compressor works along with other things…..
seafeye replied to seafeye's topic in 9PA, 9PA1 (Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo, Cayenne Turbo S)Yeah. I was getting quotes of $500 just to the cloth headliner, and it probably wouldn't have matched. An added bonus is now my overhead lights work. And I now have homelink.
