  1. I had my TC replaced Tuesday, fully covered. I brought it in last month 1 day before the warranty (the new one) expired, talk about good timing! At that, it took several days to get it approved as I do have over 100k miles and even though it is unlimited, they do push back by default on anything with over 100k miles. NOW I get to see if I will be reimbursed for the 2016 TC replacement I paid for, just waiting for the letter to arrive.
  2. Hi All, I received this email today: Dear Mr. Peterson, Thank you for your patience while I reviewed your case internally. I apologize for the delay in my response but I am happy to prove you with a case update. PCNA announced an extended warranty on the transfer box for certain Porsche makes, years, and models. This warranty went live within the last week and we are currently in the process of establishing our third party processing department for reimbursement and repair claims. While we are unable to provide you a direct resolution regarding you
  3. Thanks again for the advice. I had ordered new TC oil (Ravenol) and the additive and was going to change my transfer case oil this weekend, but I got this email today so I will wait until they replace the TC and will then check/change oil.

  4. Hi All, Adding to the list. 2011 S, 126k miles 9/15/2016 had the transfer case replaced at a local dealer, 84k miles Yesterday was told I need a new transfer case again @ 126k miles. Seems a bit crazy. I have never replaced a transfer case on any other vehicles I have owned. Now 2 in less that 4 years on the same vehicle. I have contacted Porsche NA for some sort of relief. I don't have any expectations. I would also ask, is it crazy difficult to replace myself? I am fairly capable. Also, can I do it on jack stands or does it sort of require a lift?
  5. Hi, I have a 2011 S and am wondering if there is a way to silence or at least turn down the audible tones from the parking sensors? Thanks, -Eric
  6. I wasn't able to get that bolt off under the intake. I think it's an 8mm bolt (I was almost able to get a wrench on it) and so I opted to cut the line on both sides of that bracket, put the new line/valve in place and then zip tie it to the old piece of line I left attached to the bracket. I will probably take the manifolds off over Winter when I clean them and the throttle body. It's too soon to see if the P0446 code is fixed, but my other annoying symptom has gone away, which was it was very hard to start after fueling up. I filled up this morning started right up without issue. Previously
  7. I have the valve, does the intake need to be removed to get to the valve?
  8. I replaced both valves that are located above the front passenger tire, behind the headlight. Still getting the same codes. I wasn't able to get the valve changed in the evap canister, I may try again, I had trouble getting the canister out and was running out of time. I am getting a sound which I tracked to the vent that is near the gas cap, which comes from where I replaced the valves. Sounds like a fan or motor type noise, but I think it's a sucking sound. I can stop the noise by putting my finger over the vent tube. I have also ordered the other valve (#1 from the diagram). Could that
  9. I apparently ordered the wrong valve (which is the other valve in the assembly) and so I will have to wait until the correct valve arrives to complete this task. I did check fuse E6 and it is fine. Any other thoughts as to why it would be difficult to start after filling up (and this only ever happens after filling up, otherwise starting is not an issue). When the correct valve arrive, I also plan to remove and check the valve on the canister as that is the one I errantly ordered. There are 2 valves located in an assembly behind the passenger headlight, basically directly above the tire. I w
  10. OK, that's what I have sort of figured out during all this research. I will try this valve this weekend and hopefully not move on from there :) -Eric
  11. OK, that makes a lot of sense, thank you. I agree (now) that there was nothoing wrong with the sensors :) Based on a thread I read I would need to either replace the valve I purchased, or another valve ( http://www.pelicanparts.com/cgi-bin/smart/more_info.cgi?pn=996-110-129-06-M100&catalog_description=&Regeneration%2520Valve%2520from%2520Throttle%2520Body%2520for%2520Fuel%2520Vapor%2520System%252C%2520Boxster%252FBoxster%2520S%2520%2528%2531%2539%2539%2537%252D%2530%2534%2529%252C%2520Each%2520 ) which I think is the one that runs under the intake previously mentioned. -Eric Pictur

  13. Perhaps you need to be more specific on which valve you are talking about - as the one in this thread is the one on the canister. What was your fault code(s)? I ordered part# 99660521301 based on reading a couple threads and getting the P0446 code on my car. I have replaced both sensors in front of the pre cats, still getting the P0446 and also P1128 & P1130. I saw a couple threads here refernceing this valve as well as the one under the intake manifold. Also when I fill up with gas the car is very hard to start, I have to crank it several times and also use the gas pedal, making me thi
  14. Did they move this valve to the engine area in '01? The parts diagram shows the valve at the other end of the line, or am I missing something? It's part #9 in this link http://www.autoatlanta.com/porsche-parts/986-97-04/201-20.php?pn=99660521301#a but where is that top assembly located?
