  1. I can try a picture of tab off the air cleaner assembly but it's really recessed in a hole and hard to even see. I may just wait a couple weeks as I'm having a local shop pin my coolant pipes to avoid the dredded coolant pipe failure...
  2. Looked at DIY for 996 GT3 as couldn't find one for the 997. Wondered what the secret is for releasing the connector for mass flow sensor? Can't tell if you push or pull the tab to release and don't want to break the plastic tab obviously. Also, the part holding the assembly to the rear bodywork is NOT a 10mm nut- looks like an allen, but hard to tell. I seem to be making this a lot harder than it should be...
  3. Tried disconnecting for 3-4 days, plus hooking the ends up, neither did anything unfortunately... lovely 2 hour trip on I-80 to Omaha in my future... oh boy.... May also just try driving for a couple days to see if that clears it with time...
  4. Thx- that is worth a try- assume it will also erase all the phone and radio memory at the same time...
  5. Just had the .2 2010 GT3 clear bra-ed and had the headlights out. The shop moved the car a little during the process which set off half the dashboard with warning lights. We couldn't find anyway to reset with Durametric and disconnecting the battery, fuses etc didn't work. Don't want to do a 2 hour drive to the nearest dealer to reset with those annoying lights flashing at me the whole way!! Any ideas???

  7. Cleaning the rear calipers from my '73 2.0 I'm restoring and I advanced the pistons while replacing the rubber boots while cleaning everything. Got one piston back in fine, but the one on the side of the parking brake lever won't go back in. Keep turning the set screw and nothing happens- acts like it is stripped- can move the piston with a C-clamp either. What did I screw up??? Rebuilt several calipers and not had this happen before, but the rears on the 914 are a strange duck...
  8. I remember it took something like 2 hours to remove those damned stickers on the backs of the seats of my previous 996 GT3- anyone have something that will soften them without messing up the paint, short of scrapping off little bits at a time? Softened up and removed the airbag stickers with denatured alcohol. All those damned "warning" stickers drive me CRAZY!!! Search came up empty...
  9. Thanks. I also found a tube of lubricant for the centerlocks at Suncoast- it's a Porsche part and their prices are usually pretty good.
  10. I'm trying to find a source for the latest bulletins on the maintenance and cleaning and greasing of the centerlocks. Guess it's not a TSB and don't see anything listed there. I've heard several talk about it but haven't seen it in print. Getting my '10 GT3 this coming weekend and am just starting my "homework" !!
  11. My son is looking at an "06 Cayman S that is CPO'ed when the present owner bought it used with less than 2K miles. Can that be transferred to my son if he buys it. I recently found out that the CPO by Audi on an A8 I'm looking at is NOT transferrable if I were to sell it. Our local dealer isn't much help as they've never CPO'ed a Porsche!!

  13. I've got the black weathertech in my Cayenne and have used them in other Audi and BMW products- happy with them and they fit well.
  14. Just did a scan with my new Durametric and several saved codes besides the one I was going to the dealer with about PASM (1772) discussed elsewhere. Found several under Motronic- P0011 (camshaft position), P00300 - multiple misfires, P0307, P0302, P0306, all for specific cylinder misfires. These did not throw a CEL but does this mean I need the coil-packs replaced?? Also 1542 under PSM - rate of turn sensor... boy, at 43K I don't want these going off after 50K!!!' Looks like the dealer has some work to do...
  15. I had the same problem with my driver's side front turn signal- was intermittent and would blink real fast and throw the famous !. Dealer got me a new bulb- luckily he just gave me the bulb as I didn't have time to stop and have them replace it- told him I'd do myself- haven't done it yet and the bulb has been working now fine for a couple months... now I have an extra bulb- they said it was something you couldn't get at NAPA or OReilly's for example and they didn't have one in stock. I bet it's a bad bulb or connection with the bulb itself. A trip to the dealer for you...
  16. Went off this AM after washing it- hooked up to Durametric and it gave me code 1772 pressure sensor? Anyone got this specific code by chance? Which sensor would that be... at least this time I can tell the dealer what the code is...it nevers stays on long enough for them to register it.
  17. At least there aren't 20 some of them in a row like that famous 917 picture!!
  18. Of course, those of us with the CD based units will NEVER get an update, thanks to Porsche, even though NAVTEQ has the info... :cursing:
  19. Thanks for the update. Maybe I need to ship the truck to England to get it fixed... :)
  20. I haven't done this as mine don't scrape yet, but some have just bent the wiper arm a little to change the angle of the blade on the windshield. There's a rumour that part of the Porsche offficial fix is to do that- just bend the wiper arm...
  21. I have a very late '04 CS with PASM (wouldn't consider a Cayenne without it) and it throws a "faulty workshop" air suspension ! a couple times a month. For some reason the computer does NOT store the code so when I take to the dealer there is nothing for them to find and of course it NEVER does it while they have it. Haven't figured out a pattern but it seems to do it more when it's wet. I just got the durametric software package so the next time it does it while I'm driving I can get the code before shutting it off. What have others found to be the problem when you get that code??? __________________
  22. Replaced my air filters recently- pretty easy. Anyone done the pollen filter?
