  1. Hi Steve, I hope you don't mind me sending you a message directly but sounded like that you've changed your fuel vent line (at the intake manifold as there seems to be about 3 with similar part description) and wanted to pick your brain.  The part number I need to replace is 996.110.129.06 (I've got a 2004 Boxster S Anniversary Edition).  Anyway, how difficult was it to do this yourself?  I've got minimal experience but have been able to replace my AOS and starter, is it much more difficult than that?


  2. I'm in the process of replacing the fuel vent line from the throttle body. Just above where it connects to the line on the car, it (along with three other lines) runs through a clasp. How do I get this open? It looks like the hinge is on the right side, but I can't see how to open it. This pic is just in front of the rear driver's tire looking up.
  3. Yes, for the 996 engine. I suppose at this point it's a guessing game, and I may as well change the part and see if it helps
  4. I don't have a reader, Durametric or otherwise. Would a generic one work?
  5. I have had this issue for a couple years. The main symptom is that, after driving awhile, and especially on less than half a tank, there will be a moaning sound coming from the gas cap. If I remove the gas cap and open the fuel filler, air will rush in. The other issue I'm having is that, on cold starts, the car will kind of buck like the fuel is cutting out - it goes away after a couple minutes when the car is warm. I have already changed the valve on the gas filler neck and the valve on the charcoal canister, but neither fixed the issue. I'm now targeting the fuel vent line connected to the throttle body, but having read other posts, it seems like that one generally causes issues with fueling and with hot starts, neither of which I'm having. Ideas?
  6. I traced the lines - unless it is behind the carbon canister (I would have to take the canister off to get to it), part number 8 is not in there. Where should it be in my pics?
  7. I replaced number 6 on the canister already - I still have number 9. Do you think my car doesn't have part 8?
  8. Following up on this thread from three years ago: I changed 996.605.201.01, but I still get a very loud, throaty noise when I drive for long distances. I finally decided to take the car apart again today, and darn it if I can't figure out where 996.605.213.01 goes. Everyone says it's behind the headlight, but I don't see anything. Here is what my car looks like. Should I be changing the part with the orange cap just behind the filler (http://www.pelicanparts.com/techarticles/Porsche-996-997-Carrera/106-FUEL-Replacing_Your_Fuel_Line_Vent_Valve/106-FUEL-Replacing_Your_Fuel_Line_Vent_Valve.htm).
  9. I have a 2009 Cayenne that, the day it hit 60,000 miles, started getting a serious thumping under the center console. I ordered the new EPS bearing and took it to the local Porsche shop. They removed the driveshaft and installed the new rubber front and the new bearing. However, the car is still shaking somewhat right around 30 mph. I suspect they did not reinstall the driveshaft the same way it came out, and it is out of balance. Couple questions - does that sound reasonable? How would they rebalance the driveshaft? Or, do I need to replace the driveshaft as well?
  10. I'm looking for both a tumbler (similar to this one): and a plastic water bottle that would fit in the middle cupholders of my 2009 Cayenne. About the only thing I have that fits is the plastic Starbucks container: Any help or ideas are much appreciated.
  11. I know that this has been discussed before, just looking for some BTDT stories. Sounds like Phillips is the way to go: http://www.philipshidkits.com/h7-xenon-philips-slim-ballast-hid-conversion-kits/ What options should I pick? Probably go with 4200K as I want as white a light as possible. Do I need a relay cable? I assume not, since I don't think the 98s have the fancy sensors that care about headlight wattage. Anyone use this kit and have tips?
