Found a big thread on this, sorry and disregard Parajed
Now, apparently I am having a brain fart, and the manual covers every other light than the marker lights............................. How do you change the front marker light? I would guess that the reflector would just pop out, since I took out the headlight assembly and still can't get to the marker bulb..................... just don't want to pry and break the reflector out. Cheers

Hey Bro, I never did update my Nav, I found it would be a huge pain to put an aftermarket unit in due to the bose amp. I can't say that I use nav that much anyways, but it is nice to have something that is updated when you actually need it. Parajed Did you ever go with a Nav system for your Cayenne? I am i the same boat and wanting to put in something nicer on my 06. Let me know what you ended up doing and if you are happy with your decision. Thank you.
Hey Bro, Could be a water pump too, had similar symptoms and I had over an 1" of lateral movement in it. Cheers
Hey Bro, listening to the video it sounds like U may have some people stuck in ur engine......... may be the 1st problem!! Do u have any coolant leaking? That would be #1 for a water pump I would think. I had similar noise, but I also had coolant all over the place, may be ur water pump starting to go. I had about an inch of lateral movement in mine.....whoops Good luck!
Just reading at Futureshop and I see that Pioneers new AVIC-F900BT comes with a fibre-optic out. Now I am not a car electronics guy, but will this marry up to the Bose Headunit (It is fibre right?)Just wondering, I hate the PCM 2.0, it is so old and antiquated that I would like to get something that is actually up to date (w/o spending 5K) O yeah, I have a pepperS '04 Cheers Parajed
Sure thing, I am just hoping it is the right part. Looks like I may need a new starter soon, I think that is WAY more expensive!! Anyone with a Part # for that? Cheers Parajed Parajed: Good work, $124.00 CDN sounds a heck of a lot better! When you actually get the part, if you could post the part number and details here (and maybe the source, also) it would help anyone with a Cayenne who runs into this problem in the future. Regards, Maurice.
Maurice, It does have VW markings on it, I guess that is why I couldn't find a porsche #??? I got a hold of my local garage, and it is costing me $124.00CDN plus shipping and tax, quite a difference from the blower motor loren was talking about, at a MSRP of $464.12US Cheers Parajed Parajed: I would try to determine whether a VW cousin (Touareg) has the same blower motor, but with a different part number. It would probably cost less than 1/2 what the Porsche dealer wants for it. I know that on a 986 Boxster, there is an equivalent motor made for a Jetta Wagon by the same manufacturer (Valeo) for 1/3 the price. Does your defective blower motor have any factory markings on it, from either Valeo or VW? Regards, Maurice.
Loren, Thanks for the reply. I have had the blower motor out and tested it while it is in my hand, deifinately corrosion issues. I put some lithium grease on it and it is working alright, but still cuts in and out. Cheers Parajed
Hey Bro, Mine was doing the same thing. The other day I took the glove box off, and you are able to access the blower fan pretty easily (it is encased). You are able to take the motor right out of the casing. On mine I greased the bearing on the bottom of the motor (which was filled with dirt and grime also) and blew all the crap out with an air compressor. Has been working flawlessly now, I think it just got a little dry, and after a few minutes it would seize. Hope that helps, it is a pretty easy DIY job if that is what it is. Parajed
parajed replied to parajed's topic in 9PA, 9PA1 (Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo, Cayenne Turbo S)Thanks bud, appreciate it.
I also got quoted 5.5 hours (it is what their program says). I was told it was mostly to do with removing the schrouding, the actual pump replacement is about an hour. My 04 CS is so bad the I had about 1" of play in the pulley. Pissing out coolant (well now water) sometimes, and then barely anything at other times. I have to wait until Wednesday to get it replaced, they also said that they were going to replace the serpintine belt....... does that sound right? They pretty much said "well while we are in there we might as well replace it. Granted I have 144K Km on it, but it almost sounded like they were replacing it just cause............ Cheers Invoice has it as 5.5 hours which was approved by 3rd party warranty - I am assuming that is accurate. JR
parajed replied to parajed's topic in 9PA, 9PA1 (Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo, Cayenne Turbo S)Dennis, You were right, my water pump is FF'd. The pully had about 1 1/2" of movement...........................
