  1. $22.00 at Suncoast Porsche Parts http://www.suncoastparts.com/product/95222109.html
  2. I have a 2013 base at 82K miles. All I've had to do to it so far is regular maintenance.
  3. It is possible to get the collapsible spare secured in the trunk with some room to spare. This is in a 2009 C2, but other people have also used them in their C4S
  4. OK, found the issue. First a bit of history to put it in context. During the latter part of the warranty period. the rear window washer quit producing fluid. The dealership worked on the vehicle to "unclog" the lines and it worked again for a while. Lately though the amount of fluid squirting out of the nozzles has been anemic at best. The other symptoms that started last weekend were wiper coming on by itself, not responding to the wiper switch, and randomly stopping in odd locations. After a bit of research it appeared to be similar to a failure of the park electrodes within the wiper motor assembly in other makes and models. Based on that guess, I ordered a new wiper motor. This is what I found. It appears that during the repair, the technician did not properly seat the input nozzle of the wiper fluid to the wiper motor. The base of this nozzle should be flush to the metal, not sitting a couple of mm above it. If I turn it over it falls off in my hand. Therefore, the nozzle was squirting fluid both into the sprayer and into the gear assembly, and had been doing so for some time. When I pulled the cover off the gear assembly the grease looked mixed with rust and water. So it is very likely that the park electrodes are corroded. Replaced the motor assembly and everything works now. Total time for repair, about 1.5 hours disassembly and assembly.
  5. This link works sometimes http://www.renntech.org/forums/links/link/18-porsche-piwis-tsi/ I've been having freezing off and on as well
  6. Anyone? Is there a separate control module for the wiper or is it integral to the wiper motor? As of now I've pulled the rear wiper fuse so that it will quit running
  7. I have a 2013 Cayenne V6 base. I need the location of the rear wiper relay. My rear wiper seems to be stuck on and I need to locate the relay to see if it is stuck in the on position Thanks
  8. I developed a severe leak in my windshield washer that was causing the tank to empty within 24 hours. The pumps appeared to be working, but i had to remove the tank to determine the cause. Turns out the internal seal of the windshield washer pump had failed and fluid was leaking out of the housing. In the process I documented the steps needed to remove the tank for your reference in the attached PDF. This is for a 2009 997.2 Carrera Base with the headlight washers. Hope this helps.

  11. I'm at 80K with my 2009 C2, putting on about 17K/year. Other than regular maintenance, the only issue I had was a leaking sunroof which was fixed under warranty.
  12. Depends on what it includes. I went with the maintenance plan on my 2013 Cayenne, but paid about $1400 for the 40K service on my 2009 997.2 about two years ago. Note that I added some things not normally done. I also changed the cabin and air filters myself, so it wasn't part of the cost. It did include Oil change and filter New spark plugs New engine belt (Normally not part of the service, requested by me) Wheel alignment (Normally not part of the service, requested by me) Brake fluid flush (it was close enough to 2 years since the last time) Bunch of inspections My dealerships normally tries to replace the windshield wiper every 10K miles, but this is an easy DIY, so not part of the cost I would get the dealerships to give you a breakdown of the costs starting with the cheapest quote. You could also ask around for a reliable independent shop and compare prices.
