  1. From what I have been told Stop Start technology is amazingly advanced. The bits I remember: To start the car ONLY the optimal cylinder (s) are fed with fuel and ignighted. This turns the engine over, being up to temperature it starts with fuel being fed into the remaining cylinders as normal. Reducing the need for the starter motor and load on the battery.
  2. Hi Everyone, Time to get back into a Porsche. Heart says 997.2 C4S head is saying Panamera hybrid. Could someone please explain the easy points to look for in an advert / photos spot the facelift 970.2? My budget puts me in the bracket of a higher mileage facelift or the original model. Any help and advice please, before my heart wins TIA
  3. Thanks for your reply. Just finished bleeding the system no hint of any air not even the tiny bubbles. No chance of any air getting into the secondary system from my actions. Being in a bit of a flap, asked same question on planet 9. There is a suggestion that reusing the shims may be the culprit. Never crossed my mind to get new shims Live and learn. Thanks again
  4. Hi Everyone In a bit of a rush as we depart for the ring in the morning. Fitted new Pagid rotors and ebc yellow stuff pads to the front. Also a dot 4 fluid flush. Suffering with the dreaded soft pedal. Wasn't sure if it was just new pads and rotors. 100 miles bedding in no improvement. 50 miles more spirited - still no improvement. So to the 60-10 mph series of hard deceleration. 6 by 2 sessions with time to cool. No improvement. Out of desperation a series of high speed emergency ABS stops and the pedal has come back to almost normal. So the advice is do the brakes need flushing again both primary & secondary systems? Thanking you all in anticipation.
  5. Hi Everyone. Sorry for the post, but I have researched and researched and keep coming up with numerous different opinions. I would like to fit some 18x7.5 ET50 with 225/40R18 and 18x10 ET65 with 285/30R18 to my Base Cayman. In theory the fronts are fine, but may have a better stance with 15mm spacers The rear will need 18mm spacers to prevent rubbing (or just to get them to fit lol) Some say NO to the front spacers and the rears need 21mm plus So a bit confused and hence would welcome any informed advice. Thanking everyone in anticipation
  6. Hi Loren Sorry should have said, just the basic black plastic. Can you possibly check if the harness is required for the Gen 2. Some reports suggest that it is only needed on early models. Thank you again
  7. 2009 Gen 2 cayman Cruise control retro fit, Could you please provide the part number and if poss approx cost? Also can you confirm if part number Wiring Harness 997.622.674.00 is required for this model. Thanking you in anticipation.
  8. Thanks for your quick reply.... Sorry, dumb questions. How do you check the mechanism support? Would the whole assembly appear loose? Do I need to remove the wiper arm and then the plastic trim to have proper look?? If I do, is there a correct method for removing the wiper arms, once the nut(s) has been removed? Seems to be "stuck" down really well. Going to try the lube with some wd40 and copper grease. First. Wish me luck, and thanks again. Lee
  9. Hi All Needed a replacement windscreen after a stone cracked the glass When the first screen was installed (at my home by a mobile installer) the passenger wiper did not touch the screen in the middle. When in use about 6in of the screen at the bottom does not get wiped. The fitters re-ordered a new screen direct from Porsche so not a VW screen, to hopefully resolve the issue... Not the case, the wiper still does not touch. The have suggested replacing the blades with new ones, but these were only replaced last march as part of the service. I have tried the old blades and the result is exactly the same... Any ideas anyone. Thanking you all in anticipation Lee Please excuse the photos, taken on my phone and probably upside down. But if you know what you are looking at you can see the mid section of the blade does not touch the screen. Cheers Lee
  10. A quick search would have give you all you need to know http://www.renntech.org/forums/index.php?s...st&p=100055 Fingers crossed you can get the parts as they are now listed as EXCHANGE only
  11. Hi Loren Another amazingly quick reply That is as far as I got - local OPC not much use If you look again that part is in front of the rear wheel and is a spoiler. OPC was going to order this as the front mud flap but says this bit keeps some of the road grime from the rear suspension. Especially useful if you have air suspension (I don't know why). They don't think the part is availble - even though I have one already lol Any more ideas Loren? Kind regards Lee
  12. Quickie - just found 365Driver's detailed install, don't understand why the forums search didn't throw this up :unsure: Never mind - going to have a go with the rear full set this afternoon Thanks again Lee
  13. Hi Loren Hope you can help need the part number for the front mud flaps - hope there is a separate code for each side as I have got three from fleabay and just need the remaining one. Can only find references for the rear ones on the PET system :( Do you know if there is a TSB or anything regarding the fitting? Hope it's just a case of remove wheel & screw on, but best to check Search came up with nothing, so don't know if they are called something different that side of the "pond" Thanking you in anticipation Lee Ooops - forgot to add 2005 KN S UK RHD
  14. Hi Mudman Thanks for the quick reply, the blades are perfectly silent, so don't think it needs the tweak. It more like the arm needs to apply more pressure??? Any ideas onyone?
  15. Hi All Anyone know how to adjust the front wiper arms??? The passenger side (UK Right Hand Drive so on the left) misses the bottom of the windscreen right in the middle beneath the arm wiper pivot The Drivers Side doesn't wipe fully for the full arc at the same point. Bought new genuine Porsche blades thinking that the old ones were at fault, but the new one are just the same. :( Cheers Lee
