  1. Okay, the product is Krytox grease by Dupont. So does anyone know where the lubrication should be applied?
  2. You should check with your insurance company. Most insurance cover wineshield seperately with lower deductible. Usually $100.00 if windshield need to be replaced or free if just repair.
  3. Only the rear bump stop, no front. Here is a list of items for my 6speed 2002 Carrera 4 Cab ROW M030 MY02-05 C4, Cab, 6 Speed Porsche Part Number: 000.044.500.30 2 x 996.333.792.25, Stabilizer Bar Bushing (Front) 2 x 996.333.792.12, Stabilizer Bar Bushing (Rear) 1 x 996.333.701.26, Stabilizer Bar (Front) 1 x 996.343.703.04, Stabilizer Bar (Rear) 2 x 996.343.533.25, Front Coil Spring 2 x 996.333.521.27, Rear Coil Spring 2 x 996.343.043.23, Front Strut 2 x 996.333.051.34, Rear Strut 2 x 996.333.105.03, Rear Bump Stop (Yellow)
  4. I recall the optical cable is an orange color thin cable right next to the power (4 or 5 pins) cable. They are not bundle but if it is there, you won't miss it.
  5. I haven't seen any smoked side marker for Cayenne but the clear one is available. I got mine from Sunset Import couple years ago. Note the installation is not as simple as the 996, it takes some time to replace the two lenses.
  6. I was told late 04 and all 05 models are prewired. You can check the rear pessager side compartment and see if you have two set of wires hanging. I think one is for power/control and the other one is the fiber optic. When ignition on, I saw a red light at the end of the fiber optic if no CD changer connected. You might have the CD changer bracket as well. My 05 also has the mounting bracket preinstalled and the CDC-4 kit for Cayenne also came with one. If the Cayenne is prewired, should take around 3 hours for installation.
  7. Is such a valet key available for MY 2005 and after? Has anyone purchased or obtained a valet key for after sale?
  8. I don't know is it the same hastation as everyone talks about. When it happened, it felt like lost power when try to accerate while at cruising speed, specially when lane changing.
  9. Mike, My CS had the CEL came on last month and the dealer found a record of misfire but not able to see the cause. Only the dealer did was reset it and the CEL did not come back. My CS is 05 but and the hesitation is similar to what you descripted. Do you know the hesitation would be caused by the misfire?
  10. After all the hard work, I enjoyed the CD changer for 2 days and it went dead. First CEL came on for no reason, then the next day the PCM showed no cd changer. I thought I might have screwed something during the installation. I checked and found no scratch or break on the cable. I scheduled an appointment and brought it to the dealer and they found the CDC-4 was defected and replaced it for me in warranty. The CEL had nothing to do with the CDC-4. The CDC-4 was bought brand new from the Porsche dealer, and I should get used one the first place from ebay and save me few hundred dollars.
  11. I had all my cars put on as soon as they came out of the dealership. Have it protect asap before any chip dents.
  12. The newer standard PCM for all 2006 model, you can play mp3 recorded files from a cd disc. The 2005 PCMs can't play mp3 files. I also wish mine could do that but it is a standard feature of 2006.
  13. My CS is 2005 & I had the CDC-4 put in yesterday. I didn't have to enable the CD changer. The CD changer works right after the two connectors plugged.
  14. I finally have the CD changer put in over the weekend. For me, it was impossible to do it right without help from other members of renntech. With the right directions and tools, I only broke one clip holder and was able to fix it with a gluegun. Thank you again for all the help. In additional, my CS is 2005. I didn't have to activate the MOST for the CD changer. The unit works right after the two connectors plugged.
  15. If you are in sf bayarea, I have a spare CDC-3 you can test. Opps, I just found out you are at Australia, never mind.
  16. Hi Loren, I got my new CDC-4 CD changer and tried to install it to my pre-wired 05 CS. Both of the power & optical cable are there and the plugs match. I spent a lot of time but still got no clue how the lugguage trims can be removed so I can put the changer onto the bracket. Do you have the removal procedure? Thanks.
  17. Loren, Thanks for the quick response. I have the TSB for the CDC-4 but it doesn't cover the removing the rear luggage compartment trim. Once I have the CDC-4 inplaced, do you have the tool to activate the MOST for me? or should I just bring it to the dealer? Thanks,
  18. I am puting in a CDC-4 changer. Is there a TSB or DIY for removing the rear luggage compartment trim? Thanks.
  19. Anyone could post some pictures and put it at the DIY section? That would be very helpful. Thanks for the tips.
  20. Thanks Rob, I assume the setting is the same for the coupe or the cab. In additional, if I bring these numbers to the alingment place, they should know what to do, right?
  21. I will have the ROW030 to put on my 02 C4 Cab soon. Does anybody have the alignment settings for it? I would like to bring it to the place that I will have the alignment done to make sure it is within spec. BTW, recommand any shop to do alignment in SF peninsula? A friend of mine recommand me Wheelwork at San Mateo. Thanks.
  22. Does anyone know the Cayenne uses the same cooling as the Carrera? I couldn't find the information in my Cayenen manual.
  23. If your Cayenne is prewired (like mine), you should find a optical wire hanging around where the CD changer should be. It is also lighted red when ignition.
  24. Mine is a 2002 C4 Cab 6 speed. I checked with both dealers. One of the dealers told me that the P/N 000 044 500 30 is the US M030 not ROW. He said P/N for the ROW M030 is 000 044 500 16. The other dealer told me that P/N 000 044 500 30 is ROW M30 and 000 044 500 16 is for model year 99 to 01 C4 Cab 6 spd. They both confirmed that they are right. I don't know who I should trust. Loren, could you tell me what 000 044 500 16 is?
  25. I placed the order at Sunset Imports, Jeff Clark, who has the correct P/N & information but no stock or ETA. I have done business with Jeff @ Sunset Import few times. Great service, highly recommand.
