Can anyone provide the color code for the matte silver trim on the Cayenne? I understand Porsche uses the code 4W9. The problem is, when I use 4W9 to have paint mixed, no one finds the code in their system. I’ve been to Sherwin Williams, Dupont, Napa, and PPG. I’m hoping that someone has different codes or has matched the color and can provide this forum with paint mixing information. – Thank you.
Does anyone have instructions for the removal of the driver side and passenger side mirrors? I would like to paint them in the Sport Design package style as seen in the attached image. Thanks - John
Thank you to everyone that has posted information pertaining to the installation of the stainless skid plate. Many posts recommend that you reach up inside the bumper (from the wheel well) and locate the lever that will let you remove it. For those of you with a turbo the intercoolers make this step very difficult. The easiest method for finding the lever is to remove the headlights. This is very easy to do following the instructions in the owner’s manual and using the supplied tool in the back of the Cayenne. The Cayenne and Cayenne S owners should consider this method as well, as it really is much easier. I’ve attached a couple of images that show the placement of the lever for those who are not familiar with where it is. Keep in mind, there is one on both sides. In one of the picture you can see the headlight washing fluid hose, the wiring harness, and the wires for the side marker.
JSB replied to JSB's topic in 9PA, 9PA1 (Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo, Cayenne Turbo S)Thank you for the suggestion. I tried turning off the PCM but the same problem persists. Is it possible that the waste gate is “fluttering” so fast that it would let me feel the rapid cutting in/out of power? I’ll take it in and see what service thinks. I’ll drive a different one as well and compare. -John
Does anyone with a Cayenne Turbo, find the delivery of power (under heavy acceleration) to be less than smooth? Even though it pulls very strong, mine seems to have power that is a bit intermittent. It is most noticeable in 2nd gear. It feels almost as if the boost is cutting in and out rapidly (my boost gauge reads fine). I previously owned an S and the power was very smooth through the entire range. I’m wondering if my Turbo’s power band is normal and just the result of all of that horsepower, or if there might be something wrong. – Thank you for your responses.
Does anyone know the part numbers for the carbon fibre parts shown in the attached picture? Also, if anyone knows of a source and/or pricing for these parts, your information would be very helpful. Description, Part Number, Price A - Steering Wheel, , B - Shift Knob, , C - Door Handle (x4?), , D - Grip Rail (x2?), , E - Top Console Surface, , F - Dash Trim, , Best regards, John
I had a 04 Cayenne S with a very low bass sounding rumble/vibration at 45-60 mph. The dealer tried the tire balancing thing, but to no avail. After further investigation, the dealer decided to replace the drive shaft. This fixed the problem completely.
