I'm currently in the same boat. Cardan (drive) shaft needs to be replaced. I've purchased a rebuilt shaft from Vertex Auto, as I've heard that their shafts have a stronger center bearing and are less likely to fail (again) in the future. Cost was approx $200 cheaper than OEM, as Vertex offers a core return incentive. ie: send your failed shaft back to them for a $350 rebate. My current problem is the installation. I've received an estimate for $600 to R&R the shaft, labor only. Other forum members advise that this figure is extreme and that the DIY is relatively easy. I don't have the tools and am sure I'll be hiring the job done; I just don't wanna get ripped off. Anyone know what the book lists for labor hours to R&R this part (1.5? 2.0?) Thanks!
I've had the same CEL issue twice. Both times stemmed from fueling the car while it was running. Once I did it; once my wife did. I've resorted to putting a small sticker on the fuel door release to remind me/us to shut the car off before removing the gas cap. The CEL light went off by itself after a day or two.
pokerjarvis replied to mitymikec's topic in 9PA, 9PA1 (Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo, Cayenne Turbo S)I shopped for one last winter. I went to a car audio specialty shop. They did some research and confirmed that a system can be fitted into a Cayenne, but required some gizmo that runs the price up by $500, or $800 total. Upon hearing that news, I came to grip with the notion that I'll be jogging through the snow to start my car.
pokerjarvis replied to stevertr's topic in 9PA, 9PA1 (Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo, Cayenne Turbo S)I had the same fault pop up last summer; 'OIL LEVEL MONITOR FAILURE' with a lifeless needle. Without cause/reason the needle would come to life and the fault would disappear. I spoke to the dealer who had never seen/heard of this one. PIWI indicated a new sensor was needed. Replaced it and have had no problem since.
I have the same problem and have just purchased some hella horns to replace the stock ones. Please let me know how things go for you. I'd appreciate any comments/advice/thoughts you have on this one...
Sounds like the ever popular ignition coil problem. If this TT is being offered at a Porsche dealership, I'd inquire about the coils. Specifically, has it had the coils replaced, and if so, what part number did they use? If the coils have been replaced, you may still have the check to see if any are currently cracked. There are many posts/threads on this issue and any Porsche dealer will know what to look for. Good luck.
pokerjarvis replied to shastamonk's topic in 9PA, 9PA1 (Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo, Cayenne Turbo S)I also went with the Hawk Low Dust pads, under advice from Mr. Mud. I got 'em on eBay; roughly 100 bucks for each set. My rears weren't up for replacement yet but did them at the same time just 'cuz I didn't want the dust anymore. Replaced the rotors in the front; rears were fine so I left them. I went with TriNET drilled, slotted rotors. Painted the calipers when everything was apart. Everything's awesome.
pokerjarvis replied to AVIA8R's topic in 9PA, 9PA1 (Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo, Cayenne Turbo S)Anyone chipped a non-turbo CS? What kinda power dif did you notice?
My gaskets arrived Friday...yours should have been shipped too.
Mine is an '04 CS. I'm looking to change the exterior door trim from the brushed aluminum to black. I've purchased the black pillars and the door handles. Now, I'm searching for the trim that surrounds the door and quarter glass. I've checked the Mitchell manual and can't seem to identify the part number(s). Anyone been down this road?
Bummer. The inserts that I have don't have the hole for the entry and drive system. :angry:
I changed out the silver handles on my CS to the black ones. Oddly enough, the black ones came with grey inserts. So...I changed out the inserts. Follow me?? Bottom line: I have extra handles and (grey) inserts. You can have whatever you want.
Thanks to the previous posters!! Those instructions made my mod go (relatively) easy and painless. A couple of small suggestions: 1) use a magnetic torx tip on your flexible extension, and 2) have a helper handy to hold/keep the wheelhouse liner out of your way so you can use both hands to work on that fun upper mount screw.
Frank, Did you ever find the part you need? I may have what you need, if you're still looking. What color are you looking for?
I've just purchased the Cargraphic H&R Sport Springs. I'm wondering if the installation of these springs will cause any warning lights to fire? Anyone installed lowering springs?
