cmoore1 replied to jose's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Delreycustoms.com has leds for the widebody in 3 different styles Spyder brand but they are $835 including a needed harness.
Turbo and 4S lights are different from the lights for a narrow body. So far the only vendor I've found is Delreycustoms.com--they sell the Spyder brand in 3 different styles but they are $835 including a needed harness. Anyone found a cheaper source?
cmoore1 replied to tom__w's topic in 9PA, 9PA1 (Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo, Cayenne Turbo S)Do OEM sparkplugs really cost $20 each? (Suncoast = $160/set) Are they available under a Bosche P/N from a parts supplier?
I have a 2006 CS. The maintence manual just seems to indicate checking the drive belt. I don't see a schedule for replacing it.
The TSB "coolant pipe remove/reinstall" states "labor time 100 TU"---what does 100TU translate to? I think I read somewhere that It's a 4 1/2 hour job.
You need an adapter plug P/n PNA 955 118 93--this replaces the plate held on by 4 screws--the wiring harness plug should be already behind this plate--just attach to the back of the new adapter plug and you're in business. This adapter plug gives you a standard 7pin rv type receptacle. For a 7way to 4 flat--like most small trailers without brakes you need adapter plug PNA 955 127 08 to convert the unit to a 4pin flat. If your trailer has led lights Uhaul has a "led light trailer module" P/N uhaul39008 to use instead of the Porsche PNA955 127 08. Can't answer your second ? my Cayenne is an 06S --no air suspension.
I had a misfire on one cylinder on my 2006 Cayenne S --the TSB said to replace them all so I got 8 new coilpacks at no charge. Car was still under original warranty.
I have read on various forums that 04 Cayennes were prone to failure of the center driveshaft bearing. When were these shafts changed and how would I know if I have one of the failure prone shafts. My CS is an 06 model but it was manufactured the first day of 05 so it has at least some 04 parts in it. For instance the ignition coils were -01 units and were just replaced under warranty with -05 units per the TSB (one coil failed TSB said to replace them all).
Approved oils per Porsche TSB dated Mar10, 2009: 0W-40 5W-40 and 5W-50. It's a Porsche --don't cheap out on the oil! And remember they come factory filled with Mobil 1.
I picked up a set of 18" Turbo wheels by posting a "wanted to buy--18" Cayenne wheels" on Craigs list. I got a speedy reply with an offer to sell 4 wheels with center caps for $250. I think there are a lot of wheels like this taking up room in garages from people who upgraded to larger diameter wheels. I found that the 18's work perfect with Pirelli Scorpion Ice and Snow tires. Also the 18" winter tires are considerably cheaper than the bigger sizes.

K&N makes an oil filter--Part# HP7011 special order @ Autozone--$24.99
cmoore1 replied to coyote1's topic in 9PA, 9PA1 (Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo, Cayenne Turbo S)I have a 2006 S and went with Pirelli Scorpion Ice & Snow from the Tirerack.com. I picked up a set of 18" Turbo wheels for $250 (lots of these sitting in garages from turbo owners who upgraded to bigger wheels). Be aware that as you go up in size the price goes up Tire RacK: 18" $203, 20" $267, 21" $298 and 22" $344. Prices are each + shipping. Also 21 and 22 Pirelli's are not -NO (Porsche spec) tires. Not sure how critical it is to have Porsche spec winter tires--when I got my 18's last year they were out of -NO tires so I went with Mercedes spec figured if they were good enough for a Benz suv they would probably be ok for a Porsche. Bonus was that the Benz tires have 4/32 more tread depth.
I don't think a DVD for Europe is going to be much use to a person who lives in Ohio! Also Cayenne p/n's usually start with 955. A previous post stated thet the 08 nav update is 955 044 902 61.
I don't think air temp has anything to do with the initial start in first gear. I live in the desert--my 06 S always starts in first gear on initial start in the morning even if it's 100-110F outside. You're right --it's designed that way to rapidly heat up the cats.
