hi all...many, many thanks for all your help. Problem is solved now - it's the little wire/cable that got detached. I am so glad! Cheers!
Thank you bigbuzuki....I will certainly check that out tomorrow. BTW, how do I know that the relay needs changing? Can this be picked up by PIWIS? Or just by trial and error by putting on a new relay? Thanks again..
I think I have similar problem - leaking from the left hand side fuel tank. But mine is Right Hand Drive. Do you think the problem is the same, regardless of right or left hand drive? I guess it is simple enough to get the mechanic to check by flipping over the rear seat and open up the access metal top? Cheers...
Hi all, hope all's well. Finally found some time to look into this again. The mechanic saw that the wire/small cable leading to the connector (into the steering rack, right at the bottom) got cut off. Any idea where this wire comes from? I hope the problem will be solved by reconnecting the wire. Appreciate any leads to this. Thanks very much :)
Thanks guys. I definitely have the servotronic option (looked at my options list). I have yet to check the electrical connector. Perhaps in another 2 weeks or so. Azelaya - how did you find out that the servotronic is the problem? PIWIS?
Serpentine....clumsy fingers pressing the ?....Haha. Cheers.
I meant serpentine belt?..sorry.
Thanks! I googled this forum and gathered that I needed to get Pentosin. I got one with parts no G 004 000 M2. I was told it is the same as the one used by Touareg and Audi Q7. The fluid is green in colour. Yes, the steering is speed sensitive, at least prior to it becoming heavy. I check the tires every 2 weeks. Suspension seems ok too. So is the see time belt. There could be a leak, but I can't explain why the level in te reservoir has not deteriorated over the past 12 months...unless the workshop had done something behind my back! Cheers....
Hello everyone! Wondering if you have come across similar problem and what the remedy is. My power steering (on the 2004 Cayenne S) got "heavy" some 12 months ago. I found the the fluid level in the reservoir was low and subsequently I had topped it up. 12 months has passed by - the level in the reservoir stays the same and the steering is just as heavy. Could it be just a pressure switch or fuse problem somewhere? My mechanic, who is not a Porsche specialist, is equally bafffled. cheers DIN
Happy to share I've received confirmation that the "vent line" is indeed part of the kit. Thanks anyway guys. Excellent help here..
Hi.....thanks again for these very helpful tips. I am in the midst of changingputting on the replacement aluminium kit but my mechanic had also suggested that I change the "smaller, 3 piece hose set with a T connector". Perhaps this is the one referred to above as "The small and brittle black plastic pipes connected to the left and right cylinder head (visible above the allu.pipes in the pic., are also a source of problems.)". Do you know the part number for this, and the price? Grateful your advise. Thank you.. Upon closer scrutiny of the aluminium kit picture, I can see that these smaller hoses are also included. Perhaps this is the "vent line"? I am getting the kit from Suncoastparts. Thanks again...

I had the same problem - just a case of poor contact. You may need to either change, or quite possibly, re-align, that plastic press-piece. Don't worry.
After changing the "rear module", the car was back to normal (ie wipers are no longer activated by themselves, air-cond works, signals work) EXCEPT for i) the rear boot could not be opened and ii) the remote/central locking has somewhat been reconfigured - to lock the doors and boot, I press the usual lock/unlock button. Pressing the usual lock/unlock button again does not unlock the car. To unlock, I now need to press the "rear boot" button. And even then only the doors are unlocked. The boot remains to be locked. Today the mechanic changed the "lock module" at the front door - and now the locking and unlcoking of doors are back to normal. BUT, the boot still cannot be opened. Any idea where the problem is?
Oops it's 7L0 959 933 D .... thanks.
