  1. and that is what I wrote....In fact I copied and pasted from the manual..... Anyway, I hope your brakes are good!! Bob
  2. My manual doesn't show the seat runners covers either.......at least you got to the battery!! Anyway, the best thing you can do is have the battery load tested. At least that way you know if it's good or not. By my experience, and as Loren mentions, a bad battery on a Cayenne can cause all kinds of weird problems and messages!! Bob
  3. I would bleed the brakes again, and of course make sure you have enough fluid. I know what it's like to run low during the procedure!! Also, pump the pedal a few times as you do the bleeding. You will need someone to help you when you do this. On several occasions I have had a bit of air trapped in the master cylinder, and this may be your problem. I use a Speedi-Bleed with a two liter container so I don't or shouldn't run out of fluid..... If you have air in the ABS block, or secondary circuit as it's referred to, you would need the PIWIS tester to bleed it. I don't really think that's your problem though........So try another bleed, pump the pedal several times during the bleed, and remember rear right/rear left/front right/front left. Bleed the outer bleeder valve first on each caliper.... Let us know how you make out.... Bob
  4. Phil, There are a few options.... Have a look here http://shop.fvd.de/us/en/Porsche-0/997_TT_GT2-126/-/-/group/show/VID_25700397-VCD_98580036-gid_29-sort_4-display_5/Catalytics.html You should be able to find something specific to the CATS you have installed... Bob
  5. The bolts and spindles aren't worn, the wiper blades are new, and the pivot points are free. The only issue is the right nut loosens. I think I will order two new nuts and the two washers and see if it cures the problem....I was just wondering if anyone else had this issue as it causes the wipers to streak and miss areas.... Bob
  6. Hi all, I know the wipers have been covered quite a bit but I seem to have a slightly different issue causing a similar problem..... In my case the drivers wiper leaves an un-wiped streak in the center of the blade on the upstroke. The passengers blade leaves an un- wiped area in the lower area regardless of blade direction. Here is what I found: On the passenger wiper arm there are two 16mm nuts holding the arm on. The right one is loose. When I torque this nut down both the drivers and passengers blades work perfectly! No elephant sounds either by the way........ The problem is the nut loosens as soon as I use the wipers and we are back to square one...... Just wondering if anyone has seen this on their Cayenne, and did replacing the two nuts and washers resolve the issue?? PS I have tried blue loctite with no success...... Bob
  7. Yes it's 7DPK 2950 from the Porsche Dealer..... Bob From the dealer and PET: 999 192 380 50 7DPK 2950
  8. Hi Loren, I received a new Conti Tech multi rib belt and have the removal installation instructions. The only question I have is the new belt seems to have two different sides. Both are ribbed of course, but one seems to be impregnated with a crystalline substance. Is there an inside or outside to this, or does it matter which way it goes on?? Bob
  9. Hi Loren..... No corrosion at any of the connectors. A lot of dust and dirt on the outside, but clean on the inside. Sorry, I should have stated, I cleaned the outside of the connectors before opening them, and I cleaned all connectors internally with contact cleaner before re-seating them. I haven't put any heat shrink on them as yet. I just want to make sure the problem is cleared, so I'll give it a week or two. I'll be doing an oil change shortly so I'll have a look then and seal them up when I do. Bob
  10. So here's the update on this issue. I changed the battery as I had it load tested last year at this time and it was serviceable but about three year old and I didn't want to take a chance as this is my winter car. I had hoped the battery was the cause, but unfortunately it didn't solve the issue. The fan started up in high speed (limp home mode apparently) immediately. My temp repair was to disconnect the fan at the connector on the fan support. Yesterday I wrang out the wiring as per the manual with all grounds and voltages checking as per spec. The fan module was clean, with no signs of external corrosion. Unfortunately there is no real way to check it out further. For this fault the manual uses a lot of elimination processes. That is, connecting new units to ascertain serviceability....I didn't have a new units other than a temp sensor, which was OK..... In doing the continuity checks I had the connectors off for the fan, module , and the DME. All looked good. The only thing I did find was the module connector wasn't seated properly. When reseated the fan operation returned to normal. So, that was the fix for this problem........ Brgds, Bob
  11. Usually the water ends up in the passenger side foot well, and the carpet is wet. There are wiring harnesses running in plastic raceways under the carpet on both the drivers and passengers side so I would look there to be sure. In most cases just drying out everything thoroughly is enough to resolve things...... Bob
  12. Was the problem there before you changed the battery to the DIN 100? I am vaguely familiar with the DIN spec but I seem to remember DIN 100 is approximately the same size as the original. It shouldn't cause the problem your having unless the new battery is no good or not properly charged..... Keep us posted... Bob
  13. Thanks wvicary... I have a temp sensor which I'll change first. Do you know if the fan module can be changed separately? The local Porsche dealer tells me I have to change both fans and the support which includes the module. They claim it can't be purchased separately.... Bob
  14. Waynerp, The input shaft seal will have to be changed of course, but it is possible the low oil level is causing the noise you describe....Kind of a catch 22...but at least filling the oil would either get rid of the noise or confirm a pump problem. Bob
  15. Waynerp, You say there is a leak at the bellhousing, so my question would be did they check the transmission fluid level? Low fluid level could be causing the noise you describe. I would hope that it hasn't caused any permanent damage to the transmission!! Bob
