  1. There is a TSB that outlines the process of doing this. It does say that you need a PWIS tester. But I don't see why you should. The remotes should all be self contained. I'm about to do that same thing next week so let me know what happens. http://www.renntech.org/forums/index.php?app=downloads&module=display&section=download&do=confirm_download&id=908
  2. Maybe this helps? The pics are for a 2003-2006 but maybe similar. http://www.porsche.com/all/media/pdf/originalparts/usa/9PA1_USA_KATALOG.pdf

  4. So here are a couple of snaps. I have my headliner out if anyone needs a specific shot of anything just ask. At the back of the sunroof frame is a drain. It has a bit of a reservoir then the tube to the back of the car. I sat inside the car while a buddy with a hose sprayed the roof of the car. No water came in. So i moved the car onto an incline and water started to drip. (Don't park on an incline, is the only answer i can come up with) If the reservoir gets too much water then it will leak over the frame and onto your headliner. I am going to go full black alcantara for the interior of th
  5. Will post some pics in a few minutes. I took out my headliner because it was sagging. While is was out i checked all 4 sunroof drains and found them clean. But i have water marks on my headliner. So now that i have a clear shot of the interior roof and the sunroof mechanism, i was able to see the leaks. I poured a bottle of water on the sunroof and it started dripping out over the rear seats. I take it the actual sunroof seal is not doing its job. Turns out the seal is letting water drip through and the channel is lower than the drain. So it just drips. Hopefully pictures can describe bett
  6. I guess i am on the list to replace the stepper motor. Looks easy to install. Guess they are on the second generation. Here is the latest part number i could find: 955 624 601 01 Used for $200 and new for $500 plus. Don't think a used one would be a good idea.
  7. I don't think so, I will double check later today. Yesterday driving the car air was coming from my left vent. The day before it wasn't. Maybe someone here has replaced the actuator and has the cliff notes on it.
  8. Having an intermittent issue with air coming out of the left and right side vents in my 2004 CS. Only front A/C unit installed. I do not have a durametric connection cable. I have looked and looked but haven't really found any DIY regarding the replacement of the Servo Motors. Assuming that it could be two things. Either the A/C controller or the Servo Motor Flap Actuator. Since it works occasionally i am going to put my money on the Flap Actuator. Has anyone replaced one of these? I will gladly do a DIY write up if i can end up doing it myself. It looks like i need to do the followi
  9. Mine went at about 69,000 miles. Sounded like a flat tire pounding against my inner fender.
  10. Used to be a once in a while thing now it happens frequently. I get into the SUV. Turn the key, the truck starts then shuts off. I turn the key off all the way then back on and it starts and stays on. Always starts and stays on after the 2nd attempt. Any ideas?
  11. Seems the hot florida sun has been affecting my headliner. It is starting to sag in the rear. Anyone have a DIY for the removal of it? And i saw a nice headliner on Ebay for sale. Cheap compared to what the option price for Alcantera. http://www.ebay.com/itm/05-Porsche-Cayenne-955-Turbo-headliner-/350527792106?pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&hash=item519d15a3ea&vxp=mtr#ht_4463wt_1219
  12. I would like to think you can still do a traditional amp draw check on your battery. Get in the car and disconnect the negative on the battery and hook up your volt meter. Set to amps. Don't forget to get your radio code. Because a battery only lasted 17 days I bet you are only looking at a very small draw. Maybe .5 amps? Once you confirm you have a draw the next step is to find out what circuit. You could start pulling fuses to isolate it. Then when you find the one you will need the wiring diagram to see all that is running through that fuse. Or better yet use the DMM as described above.
  13. Sounds like you have the wrong battery in there if your alternator is working. That or you have a tremendous amount of Amps drawing power. My money would be the wrong size battery.
  14. Had some time today so i jacked up the front of the cayenne and took off the plastic bottom trays. Found a tin shield surrounding the universal joint of the rack that is supposed to have 2 bolts and 1 screw holding it in place. One of the bolts was missing. I replaced that and bent the shield back and no more noise. Bliss. 2 shops told me that my steering rack was bad. 2 shops that aren't going to get my business anymore... 2 weeks ago i did the drive shaft. Not a bad job. But two people would be handy cause of the heavy exhaust. Thank you sunset porsche. My rear hatch now stays up
  15. I am in Charlotte. You are more than welcome to use the tool. If you want i can fedex it to you and just give me the money for shipping. Think i sent it to florida for $18. I get 75% off fedex.
  16. Called all around to find the filter nearby. Autozone. None Advanced. None Oreillys. None Napa. None Went to the local VW dealer and they had one. $33 though. :(
  17. I just finished this job, should have checked here first. I took off the right wheel and then the plastic wheel well cover and then snapped it back into place. Long way round...
  18. I figured so, I was reading the TSB regarding the hard shifting when cold from 1st to 2nd. My PIG has the symptoms. Guess it will be up to me....
  19. If a vehicle warranty is expired is Porsche still responsible for complying with TSB's?
  20. Just did my cardan with a replacement from Colorado. Great service. Here is the old one.....at 72,000mls
  21. Had the 04S for about 6 months. I like the power and brakes but is this car a lemon or what? I've fixed the fuel leak, replaced rear brakes, new battery, Now all there is left to do is fix..... Squeaking steering. Need to replace steering rack? Rear Hatch doesn't stay up. Previous owner had struts replaced under warranty. 4 years ago. Odometer reset doesn't reset. Instrument cluster sometimes works sometimes doesn't. Car has wet odor when it rains. I suspect a drain hold is plugged. Somewhere. Rear wiper doesn't get wiper fluid. Hear the pump but no juice. Stereo works,
  22. My piece of crap 04S had a fuel smell as well. Then it became a large fuel leak. Enough that the fire dept was called. The top of the fuel filter had a crack. When i filled up the car it overflowed. Ended up being a $500 fix. I tried to get the dealer to fix it under the 10 year emission warranty but that didn't happen. The tank is only 2 years. Or something like that. Anyway it isn't a big deal to fix yourself. My car was already there and in pieces. Plus i was getting dizzy driving it.
  23. Do u mind looking up mine loren? Sent you a PM 2004 Cayenne S Thx
