    2005 Porsche Cayenne 3.2 V6
  1. Thanks for all the posts, everyone. I live in Northern NJ. I also updated my profile to include my location. I purchased 7 quarts of Mobil 1 synthetic 5W-40 (for some reason it says diesel truck fuel, doubt it matters), Mahler oil filters, brake pad sensors and brake pads. I still have yet to buy the oil drain plug crush washers. I can't find them online so it looks like I'll have to visit the dealership. Also, is it necessary to replace the brake pad retaining clips and pins?
  2. My owner's manual mentioned 3 different oil weights for my climate. Wasn't sure which one is the correct one.
  3. Instead of posting all of my questions in other people's threads I thought I'd consolidate them all into one thread. I own a 2005 Porsche Cayenne V6 with 62,xxx miles. I'm going to be changing the oil and rear brake pads myself this week. My questions: - What is the recommended oil for this car? (I live in New Jersey and I'm guessing it's 5W-40...?) - How many quarts of oil fit into this engine? - Can anyone offer any info our tips on the rear brake pad replacement? - Are there any special tools I'll be needing?
  4. Also curious about the rear brake pad replacement on a 2005 Cayenne V6. Any info?
  5. From site: "Please note the software is older verion of Durametric Your vehicle model must be exactly as listed to use this tool. For example, 2005-07 Boxster (987) is supported, but NOT 2005-07 Boxster S (987)."
  6. Just tried the ODO/key turn rest method on my 2005 Cayenne V6 and it didn't work. :(
  7. Do these directions also apply to a 2005 Cayenne V6? Also, where do you suggest picking up the crush washers and drain plug?
  8. Great write up. I also have a Cayenne (2005 model) and am about to tackle a DIY oil change. What is the suggested grade of Mobil 1 synthetic that I should be using?
  9. Thanks for the help, everyone. On a whim I purchased an Jabra SP700 car speakerphone with FM transmitter for $60. I paired it with my Blackberry Curve 8330 and it works great. I also discovered that the music from my phone also plays through the Jabra speaker via bluetooth. Then I tried the FM transmitter and it works great and the sound quality is very impressive! I just downloaded the Pandora application for my Blackberry and I'm able to stream music non-stop over my Cayenne's stereo. $60 went a VERY long way! Tip: Plug it into your rear cigarette lighter with the charging cable when
  10. My Cayenne does not have that system. It has the regular audio system without navigation or lcd screen. I apologize for having not mentioned that in my previous post. Any options for me?
  11. +1 i had this issue and needed the bulb replaced. no problem since the bulb replacement.
  12. I'm interested in having an auxiliary audio input installed in my '05 Cayenne. I'm referring to the little female plug that I can plug my iPod or Blackberry into and play music through my factory radio. Has anyone done this mod? Any info/tips/suggestions?
  13. i purchased one just like this: http://www.tregcentral.com/ProdImages/pr-cyrts_300.jpg
