  1. Hi, I have a problem with my reverse camera on my 2008 TT. I discovered that there is a broken wire which I need to replace. How could I remove the camera unit from the rear of the car. Searched the forum and there was something about removing a clip underneath the rear window? The one above the camera or the panels left and right from the camera? Just a case of pulling? Or do I need to remove screws? A picture would be great. Thanks a lot in advance. Regards, frank
  2. Hi, They broke into my wifes 2008 tt (do not ask me how, car was locked and has an upgraded alarm system installed! They get smarter day by day!)! They took out the pcm unit but also cut all the wires. Most wires can be repaired, but not the optical one (right??)! Si I guess the complete cable loom needs to be replaced. Any idea how the wiring goes. If I remember correctly the wiring goes (in my 997) to a plug near the lower centre of the dash! This would make life easier! Optical wire goes directly to the front of the car?? Regards, frank
  3. Went by the dealer today. They immediately said it was just a matter of an airco refill or a blown airco valve. He suspected the first. Asked whether this was covered under warranty, but they said it was normal 'wear'. I told him that my definition of normal wear does not cover an airco refill within 4-5 years. If so, why isn't the mentioned in the service/maintenance manual? To be continued. frank
  4. hi all, My wifes cayenne TT (2008) has developed a new sound. When I turn on the airco there is quite a loud sissin sound coming from under the dashboard. It sounds a bit like the is a tire loosin air. As sson as I turn the airco to econ then it is gone. When I turn it on again the noice is back. Noice also sound a bit metallic like. A bit like something metallic is turning against something metallic. Just wondering whether people have experienced something simular. Regards, Frank
  5. Hi Loren and Iogray, Thanks for the reply. @ Loren: I cleaned the drains after the phone unit was replaced. One was completely jammed. The dealer also cleaned it again in this service (100$'s!, wednesday). But fine. I asked them when they had 'solved' the leakage, what the cause was. They told me on thursday that the draines were jammed. I replied by saying that I was surprised that this was the cause, because the drains were cleaned the day before by them. It is clear to me that they are lying. I gave the service guy an escape by suggesting that they perhaps have forgotten it on wednes
  6. Hi All, As allways, picking up the car after service gave me this nasty feeling. As allways they charge you things that you did not ask for, they forget to do things they are supposed to. And, also as allways, they did not finish the job correctly (forgot to tighten a few things, but this is something I allready have gotten used to). During service, they called me and said that they found some moist in the car. I did have some water in the car 2 month ago, because one of the water reservoirs in the car (used for drainage, GREAT DESIGN!!) was jammed. Because I was on holiday my car was fill
  7. Hi Mr Deilenberger, Thanks for the reply. If I am not mistaking you are referring to the clip/cover on the outside of the car. I am actually referring to the cover on the inside. Regards, frank
  8. Hi Wvicary, Thanks for the reply. I have looked at the TBS's, but I can't find one adressing the panorama roof. Do you know the number perhaps? Regards, frank
  9. Hi, My wifes 2008 TT has just been serviced at the dealer. They lubricated everything and my guess is that they forgot to install the plastic which covers the closing thing on the glass. Not sure, but I don't believe that it was the same when I brought the car. I can now see the inside 'mechanism'on the rear of the glass. Perhaps my descripion is poor, but I mean the 'thing'on the inside of the glass in the (horizontally) middle of the window, 5 inches above the rear view camara. Or 10 inches avbove the cayenne description on the back. A picture would be great. Many regards, Frank
  10. Hi, My wifes Cayenne (2008 TT) has developed an anoying wind noice around 75 Mph and above. I told the dealer, they cleaned everything but it is still there. I am starting to doubt whether it was there in the past as well. But to be honest, it wasn't so severe in the past. The car has double glass and above 75 Mph we can't hear wat the children are saying. Anybody knows what thew cause of this is? Regrads, frank.
  11. Hi, I am still trying to narrow down which unit on my fibre loop is broken (error message on my PCM).Took out my amp (because the dealer told me this was broken. I did notice some water under my co drivers seat. This made me suspicious. I have probably parked the car with a partially opened window and because everything was fine when I parked the car (for 2 week), I decided to check the phone unit. The unit moisty so I cleaned it. When I put my amp back in the car I saw a steady red light, but when I put my phone unit back, I noticed that the light turned off ones in a while (end of the loop
  12. did it! fairly easy: take away four bolts that hold the seat? unleash the cablr and take out the seat. Then one bolt some cables and the unit is out.
  13. Hi, My quest to the sustpect of my PCM error now leads to the phone unit under the co driver seat (911, 2s, 2005, bose, phone). Do I have to remove the seats in order to reach this module? Does somebody have the installation instructions for me? Regards, frank
  14. Hi Bob, thanks for your reply. Went by the dealer today and they diagnosed a faulty amp. Quoted me 1000$ for a 'new'one if I would return my old one. I will take the amp out myself first to see if the is something I can see. Does anybody have the removal instructions? To be honest, I would not be surprised if fixing the ampp is something that a local electronic specialist could easily do. Regards, frank
  15. Did some checkes this evening. Checked the most wire to the nav unit, CD changer, amp (thing located next to the emergency set) and also the PCM unit. All most cables are plugged in fine. Did notice a small tick sound when I touched the most cable going to the CD unit, but this is probable more a wish than reality). I did not test the connection to the phone unit, because I have no clue where this unit is. I guess it is part of the PCM unit itself. If I push main/trip than I see errors for NAV, AMP, CD and Phone. PCM and software are ok. What to do next? Do I have to replace something, c
