  1. slide it sideways that is how it goes on. i believe to the right when you are looking at it.
  2. Here is what i ordered Works Great http://www.suncoastparts.com/product//999L65009140B.html
  3. Continental Extreme Contact DWS are the best tires in my opinion. I have gone through most of the tires for the Cayenne/Touareg as i own both and these last the longest and give a very acceptable the noise and handling in my opinion. They also have a 60K warranty where the Michelin only have 20K. I've owned Michelin, Perrelli, and Toyo and the DWS beats them hands down. Oh and did I mention Price... they are a lot cheaper than the Michelin like $400 ($926 Vs $1,364) plus Tire rack is giving out a $70 prepaid visa card or a ion wifi Pro Camera with a purchase of 4. Check out the link.... Dan
  4. Upper and Lower Control Arms would need replacing around 100K from what i remember that is about $2,500. Honestly having a older one with all the issues documented and costs there is no way you could ever ever spend as much as you would trading it in on a new one. I have a 2K4 and it has 37K miles. My plan is to drive it into the ground for the next 10 years. It is such a blast to drive. Yours looks very nice by the way.
  5. I had the same concern until i listened to my 04 Touareg with 125K miles on it and it was making the same sound (just a little quieter). I think it is just the sound of the engine but I am no expert. Mine runs great and is so responsive to my right foot :cheers:
  6. ok great one quick question does this alpine unit interface with the fiber system in the CTT? What does the back of the radio look like when hooked up to your system? do you have any photos you can share of that part?
  7. Hello I just installed the MoBridge A2010 in my Cayenne and have been trying to figure out how to configure the menu as they all show playlist and will not change. After spending a bunch of time with this i discovered that my 04 Cayenne has the 3.0 PCM version. Can someone here explain how in the world this 04 Cayenne has the 3.0 system in it? I have the bose sound system with the SW in the spare tire area and the CD changer as well. I purchased a used MoBridge unit on e-Bay and did it my self install. the sound from my iPod is awesome and even more awesome is the fact that the AUX port sound
  8. yea it sounds like a difficult situation. You may have to take as much off the inside of the door as possible to get a hold of the release. Not sure of any tricks there from what i remember when i took apart my Touareg door. I am sure they are close to the same mechanically.Everything i see from the inside is you have to be able to remove the trim panel first. From the outside you have to have the door open in order to access the outside handle. You may have to go through the AC vent to get to it so you can pull the release.
  9. I am glad I could help. I try to learn something new about my CTT every day. I am just a big believer that knowledge is power. It is great that this site allows for sharing of information like this. It is a great asset for us owners
  10. Here is my sticker. I do have the auto option on my head lamp switch. Hopefully this solves the mystery..The "Electric Comfort Package SPT/CM Seats" looks like the option.
  11. I think the "auto" switch option is a requirement for you to have the coming home feature so you may not be able to use it as your lights are either off or on. I believe you do not have the Hardware installed to utilize the feature as the switch needs to be on "auto" to use the Auto shut off or coming home delay feature. I may be wrong but logically this makes sense as to why the option does not exist in your settings menu. ....Dan
  12. Here are some clues on the link i posted on the rennlist site. Question is do you have the 'auto' option on your head lamp knob? Two posts from rennlist I assume you mean the coming home lights option, which means if you have the auto headlights, and you shut off the car, you will have x seconds until it shuts off. Assuming it is not hardware that is needed, and is just a software setting, you can enable it. Yes, usually the coding is dependant on the position within the code, but in the case of the central electric module, it is the sum of all the decimal numbers. However I dont have all th
  13. Do you have the Bi-Xenon HID lights? I am guessing you do. You may only have 2 options. 1. Call the dealership and see if this is something that is even a option to have reprogrammed as it sounds like it is a programming issue. 2. Get the cheap Durametric tool on eBay with the software ($40) but i am not sure if the China Version will work.The Touareg site had tons of intel on how to reprogram the car with a VAG-COM and the software. The VAG COM was only $9 go figure.... [Edit: removed link to pirate software and cable. Please re-read the board Guidelines/Rules that you agreed to when regi
  14. Do you even see lights? mfg. date is 2/03. the car was initially purchased in 10/03. My options are pretty limited as i do not have the speed limiter or the TPMS (which is awesome as far as i am concerned). My Touareg has these options (TPMS, Speed warning) and i finally figured a way to disable the whole thing with a VAG-COM. I also was able to turn off the day time running lights for the Bi Xenon lights and make it a option in the menu for the TREG. My CTT has no such option as the switch is different with the auto sensor. The TREG does not have that option on the switch. It is very intere
  15. Well from my perspective it was and that is what I was stating. The sales tax i did not have to pay from a private sale more than paid for replacing the pipes. In Arizona, a $21,000 sales price at 9.2% tax would have cost an additional $1,932....I paid $1,585 to replace the pipes. When I was looking to purchase a cayenne there were several 04's and 05's for sale from dealers and private sellers. I will compare the 2 closest ones in terms of miles / condition / model. CraigList individual seller 2004 CTT 36K miles asking price $23,900 --- this is the one I purchased Scottsdale Porsche 2005 C
  16. I think the perspective on this changes if you look at what you paid for the vehicle. If you purchased the vehicle from a individual the taxes you save alone and dealership over head more than pays for the replacement of these. Doing this your self is a valid option considering you can get the parts for around $600. It then comes down to how much is the hassle worth to you to do it and if you do miss something what is the resulting impact vs taking it to Porsche and having it done. I got quotes from 3 places for this Job. Scottsdale Porsche $1985 (According to the service advisor that is the
  17. Hi i am very interested in your set up specifically from the music side. Can you tell me if you do any bluetooth music streaming? I have the exact CTT you have 2004 with the factory unit. I purchased this beast about a month ago and I want to replace the factory unit with something more modern but do not want to compromise the quality of the sound system. Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated. I live in Phoenix, (Ahwatukee area) and would love to see your system if you still are in Arizona. Thanks ....Dan
  18. not a recall but you should have them checked out as it is a expensive repair out of warranty
  19. Porsche changed the process, if you take your Cayenne to the stealership they now discount the price of the replacement by the amount that you would have gotten if you had it done and sent the paperwork in. I had mine done and walked away with a $1,500 bill with brand new pipes on my 04 Cayenne. I did this as i just purchased the car for 21K and it is like new with only 36 K miles on it so the peace of mind was well worth it. I love this CTT as it is just a flat out beast!!!!
  20. I would put the Continental DWS. I've almost always found Discount Tire to have the best prices but that is just me. I am on my 2nd set of these for mu Touareg and am planning to putting them on my Cayenne Turbo when the Michelins that are on i wear out. http://www.discounttire.com/dtcs/tires/continental/vehicle/viewProductResults.do?v=013420%7C2004&r=AZUINT%7Cpc%7C85048&ar=45&rd=19&cs=275
