  1. Apparently there are two length of cables available for the E-Hybrid 970 for charging. This is the cable that runs from the vehicle to the charging station. I have the 8ft one but would like the part number for the 25 ft one to order.
  2. I replaced mine close to 31K miles. I did replace both the front and back and bought the pads from autopartswarehouse.com. Bought the 4 sensors from Amazon. 3K miles later they are quiet, less dust and good. No lips on rotors yet. ---------------------------- Hi can you tell me what was the milleage when you have to replace the pad? did you replace both front and back? did you replace the sensors also? and lastly where did you buy Centrics pads from. Mine is 2013 diesel with 15K miles and it look pretty close worn out from visually inspection. Many thanks
  3. Installed the Centrics front and rear on a Porsche Cayenne 2012 base V6. They fit like a glove and work great. The fronts are a bit tricky to do. Rears are the easiest. Make sure the shifter is in neutral, wheels chocks in place and the electronic handbrake in NOT engaged else you would not be able to spread the rear pistons outwards. I had help to hold the calipers while I slid the old pads out and slid the new ones in. No need to take the pad dampers on the calipers out unless they are in bad shape and need to be changed.
  4. Got it and thanks. I might be able to use a jack stand for this and a steel coat hanger.
  5. Thanks Loren. Can a pair of long screw drivers be used for this? Do not have the pins and wondering if this makeshift may work? Or can I instead hang the calipers using a rigged coat hanger inside the wheel well?
  6. I would like to know too. The calipers and all look different than the older Cayenne with the central pin. I am guessing 12 point bits are required (torx it seems will not work). Caliper needs to come off? Anyone done a DIY for the front and rear. The Rears seems a bit more involved because of the electronic brake?
