  1. Stephan, I track my Cayman and have had 3 power steering failures. Ended up adding a cooler on the return line. Although it doesn't leak anymore, I think I messed up my PS pump sinbce I have very little PS at low speeds (OK at higher speeds), so i think that I too will soon replace my PS pump. Are you going to replace it yourself? Given that the Boxster and Cayman are nearly identical, we migjht share notes on how to do it the best way.

  2. I installed my V1 radar detector just to the right of the rear view mirror, modifing the winshield mount by taking off the suction cups and replacing them with double-sided take. It is now firmly positioned in the right place (rear horn can see out the rear window) and quite out of the way. You can easily find switched 12v at the fuse panel (either an unused fuse holder (V1 power wire is already fused) and just stick in the wire where one end of the fuse would go, or stick it in beside a used switched fuse slot). There is a nice slot right at the top of the windshield where hide the wire (I used a few pieces of black foam rubber after the wire was placed there to make sure it stayed in place (everything is hidden from view), then run the power wire down the same slot on the left, tuck in out of sight and down to the fuse panel. It is easy and totally invisible with nothing to modify. arcticsilver
  3. Porschelibrarian, I have the first US 9ff Cayman kit-2 which included a new box (old one sawed out by 9ff, along with the MAF sensor), a reprogramed ECU and a new exhause with vacuum-controlled valves to bypass the mufflers. The only problem with being the first is that I now have a "check engine" light P0444 (canister purge valve, open connection or no signal). The US cars are the only ones yet with fuel-tank ventilation required by these charcoal canisters, so 9ff may have muffed this. They Fired their US dealer, so I have no recourse except 9ff in Germany and they are toatlly non-responsive. So I must try to see what is going on myself. Do you have shop manuals that show how teh various sensors are hooked up? Particularly those associated with fuel tank purge via the charcoal canister. Maybe I can trace down a loose connection and not have to pitch the whole thing in order to be able to drive it in the states. Alternatively, does anyone reading this know how to fix the P0444 I keep getting on my durametric reader, either by the ECU code, totally redoing it (it was coded by 9ff) or fixing the problem in an other way. Otherwise I'm out of luck at license renewal time! Thanks in advance! Charles Hohenberg cmh@wustl.edu (314) 727-1767 (h), 935-6266 (w) 369-3377 ©
