  1. Loren, if i was within 1000 miles, I'd hug you. Ordering one later this month from you guys!
  2. 2002 Boxster, standard (manual) transmission - looking for the PN for the clutch itself, no flywheel needed.
  3. 2004 Cayenne Turbo - Transfer Case (if there's a kit needed to replace one, the kit part number would be appreciated instead!)
  4. do you have the details on this project? I am working on adding MacMini in the system. Connecting to it via an IPAD application. So that I have a touch screen interface.

  5. I forgot to add: The wine project adds the .NET infrastructure for the durametric... finally. Pictures will be coming when it doesn't look like I've got a gutted computer sitting in the passenger seat. Ive got the setup done well designed enough to keep the PC in the glovebox, and replace the existing screen with the touchscreen. I can post pics of the interface, the parts, the horrible temporary installs I use each weekend, and upload my custom ISO for anyone interested. Or if you're in the Houston, TX area, show you in exchange for help on the wiring of the PCM :)
  6. Update: I'm going forward with a few slight changes since this was updated. I've since changed the computer to a fit-pc2 (http://www.fit-pc.com/web/) with a small SSD (32gb). I've managed to configure it to automatically use my jailbroken iphone as a tethered internet device using bluetooth or USB (my choice), as well as . Up to this point, I've had to rely on a windows installation, but I've gotten enough lead time now on the project I've been able to use Ubuntu 10.04 and Wine to create a distributable ISO of the drive to replicate easily to other users. I'm still not ready to modify my d
  7. Hongkong should be okay; I only ever used email support, and they were very responsive and helpful! I wouldn't recommend programming the CDC offline; that shouldn't be an issue. Mine is online and works fine with the loop. I'd say it's the connecting fiber lines if I were to wager.

    Since here has no dealer in Hongkong while i bought my moBridge in New Zealand. So... no one can help me...anyway, i got some replied from the forum, and will try PIWIS to program the CDC off and see... Tks for ur advise.

  9. (part 2) if not, the I'd check every single connection for dust particles. You'll need a magnifying glass (yeah, I know it's hokey, but it's either that or a jeweler's loop). The behavior is definitely a reinitialization loop for the MOST system. If you just purchased the mobridge, they have a decent support staff. I'd recommend contacting them if the firmware is up to d...

  10. it's not necessary to take out everything really, the trick is to just make sure the loop is in place and connected to the mobridge unit. If I were a betting man, you've got a bad connection now somewhere. That can be a single speck of dust, or a broken fiber line. I'd replace the original hardware and see if it still misbehaves. If so, you broke the original line.

    Any comments? Thanks!!

    Now the PCM2.1 shows CDChanger now available. (i have to press button to accept every time i start my car). And now the PCM2.1 paused like once every 30sec and to search the CDChanger... and now i have toggle the Mobridge OFF and can only listen to the headunit Single CD.

    hi 3ball, i saw your post about installing mobridge.

    i managed to do the same with you inside for the beginning part. However, for the CDChanger part, i cannot take out all the things surrounding the CDC as its located at the back. Now, i manage to use my hand to unplug the Fibre-Optics behind the CDC and i could also put the bypass loop (provided by mobridge) to it. Now the PCM sho...

  14. I'm looking for three parts for a 2004 Cayenne Turbo: one covers the bolt on the rear wiper assembly, as seen below. the next part is the license plate light assembly. There's two of them, i'm missing the one on the left, as seen below. The third is easy; my rear gate's lifting capability is underpowered. I replaced this part in a mustang about 10 years ago, it was just a pressurized hydraulic cylinder. I'm hoping it's an easy piece here too! Anyone have these part/kit numbers?
  15. I was at 78k and change when it started acting odd. And I'm very sure I won't run across a Japanese car (outside a GT-R) that has a 7 thousand dollar transmission... I've done some horrible, nasty, dirty things to a nissan stanza that should get me beaten by the engineers, and it still ran like a champ for another 6 years (and I never told my ex-gf about it either, man that was fun!). Based on my experience, I'd figure the Cayenne just had a few engineering flaws, which I expected, but not that I was prepared for. I am part to blame because I still love the CTT; it's staying in the stable. I
