  1. hi all, i have searched and found info on rear drains but not the front sunroof drains. 2006 997 c2 coupe. front 2 trunk drains were clogged and are now cleaned - is there more than 2 to worry about? Sunroof drains - went through the car wash the other day and there was a wet spot in the front drivers corner of the headliner. I am assuming this is the sunroof drains. I have found info on getting to the rear drains by removing the headliner (is this a brutal chore or not too bad?) But I have looked al over with little success on the front drains. I am assuming you have to als
  2. eric, were you able to access the front drain tubes as well as i think one of mine is blocked brent
  3. Seriously!!! that is absolutely AWESOME!! That means the Dobie would fit to! THanks for answering my curiosity. - post a pick of the dog/dogs in the car if you can - tht would be awesome
  4. hi all - just researching for future as one day we plan on having a panamera... what is the feasability / possibility of a larger dog riding in the back of a panamera with the seats folded down? How about with one seat down and one up so mom, dad, human kid and fur kid can ride along. Thanks in advance brent
  5. Hi all - I am resurecting this post as it still plagues me: I have replaced the o2 sensor in front of cat- bank 2, as well as the MAS, and I still get the same codes: p0153-o2 sensor circuit slow response - bank 2 p0155-o2 sensor heater circuit bank2 sensor 1 yup - its driving me crazy brent
  6. Thanks as always Loren! from the looks of the schematic, the culprit is sensor # 14, which I am assuming is throwing the 0155 and 0050 code. I think I already replaced # 12 and 6. Will have to get it up on a hoist to confirm - can tell which one by how far I can reach!! any input on the cam shaft code? thanks brent
  7. Hi everyone, just looking for some input on this. MY 2003 cayenne S - 160,000km p 0155 o2 sensor heater curcuit bank 2 sensor 1 = Oxygen Sensor Ahead of Catalytic Converter, Bank 2 - Signal Implausible p 0021 camshaft position - timing over - advances or sytem performace bank 2 = Adjustment of Inlet Camshaft in relation to Crankshaft, Bank 2 - Signal Implausible p0050 h02s heater control curcuit bank 2 sensor 1 = Oxygen Sensor Heating Output Stage Ahead of TWC, Bank 2 - Open Circuit I just wanted to clarify a few things: bank 2 is drivers side (left hand
  8. while you are in there - consdier doing the starter as well. If there has been any coolant leak, it gets into the starter and messes it up. It would be a kick in the teath to do the pipes, and a year later have to take it all apart to do a starter. brent
  9. Did the plugs and coils yesterday - runs perfect now - had 3 Kacked coils... thanks for the input everyone
  10. Yes - same tank of gas - but it did have the fuel stabalizer. reset the codes and they come back. when driving, the light will be solid - get a beep on the dash and the check engine flashes a few times then goes solid again.
  11. 2006 porsche 997 c2, 44,000km = 27500mi I put the car on the road last week (after being parked for a few months-properly winterized-oil changed, fuel stabalizer, battery maintainer all winter) and has ran gret for a week Here is what happened on my way down to a meeting last night... It was driving fine, then I put my foot in it a little bit and noticed a change in the engine a slight hesitation, rough running then the check engine light came on - solid then blinking I scanned it after my meeting and got this P0300 Factory Fault code 507 misfire detection P0301 FFC 508 misfir
  12. Hey All, I have a 2003 cayenne S, and am getting durametric error code p0030. I have been able to find out that it is HO2S - oxygen sensor heating output stage ahead of TWC Bank 1. My question - which O2 sensor needs replaced? where is ist? what is TWC? And is BAnk 1 drivers or passenger side. Also, on a different topic - I have had an issue with the following warning on start up - gives me the "!" but sets no durametric codes - and my dash displays tlells me to "check headlight beam adjustment" I have done this as per the manual, but just can't get it to quit beeping at me on start up -
  13. Hi, I have searched this but unable to find. THe cardan shaft carrier bearing is going - had the dreaded clunking under the center counsol today. Has it been confirmed is we can use a vw toureg cardan shaft as a direct replacment to the cayenne S - if so - what is the part number it is a 2003 cayenne S with 130,000 km on it. THanks oin advance brent
  14. RFM, Started to work on the PCM tonight - removed driver side panel (they sure made this an easy procedure), then went to work on the passenger side - radio was on as it could not be shut off and would turn on anytime a door was opened. So as I was getting the passenger side panel off, the screen changed - low and behold - all the buttons worked, nav comes up - etc! Gues I scarred it into working! It must have realized it was going to be removed and decided to co-operate! Or it just was a little late coming out of hibernation form the canadian winter Thanks for all the input. I will
  15. RFM, Do you mean that a griffin little FM modulator that plugs into the cig lighter could be the issue? Even though it hasn't been used? Brent ALSO, for the fuses on the back - do you have to pull the radio, or can you get at them with it installed? And can an FM modulator blow the fuses? Thansk again Brent

  17. pics - hope these turned out - as you can see - snug fit, lots of leg room (well-as much as can be had), sits straight, looks good in a black on black car
  18. The maxi cosi has a full back that can be removed when they get older. It looks a bit narrower as well. I was able to get mine for $159 canadian. Brent Brent, can you post some pics of the setup? I currently use the Radian 80 and it's not pretty but it does kind of work. My daughter turns 4 in 11 months so I will be looking for something that fits better. where did you get your maxi cosi? All the places I looked at sell it for $199 CDN + taxes. I see you are in BC so maybe I am out of luck. I will attempt the picture posting shortly. It was the last of the stores stoc
  19. disconnected the battery, but the radio still jammed on one station - now I need to reset a PSM light as well (not an issue- have acces to durametrics). Also - If I have the car off, and open the door again - he radio goes on and can't be shut off unless I cycle the key? Any other suggestions/fixes? Brent

  21. Hello all, Just picked up a booster seat that fits perfectly in the back of the 997 Maxi Cosi Rodi XR It is a high back booster, that converts to backless - good for 40-100 lbs. It fits great - does not wiggle, aligns belts perfectly - sits far back to give leg room for the munchkin-and sts perfectly square - not off to the side. I tried my britax marathon and sunshine kids radian 60 and it was going to be a battle with those - this is a way better option. Brent
  22. Well, the snow is gone, spent half the night on getting the car ready for its maiden voyage (aluminum pedals, door sills, ipod-fm modulator mounted, fresh coat of wax) but the PCM is stuck on a single radio station. The only button that works is volume - can't change anything els on the radio. It is a MY2006 997c2 - with the pcm/and Nav (dvd based) Any suggestions - and yes - it was on a battery maintainer all winter. I tried a soft rest with the "147" buttons - but nothing hapens. THanks in advance Brent
  23. Ran on the durametric - took a while to clear but it did - error messages on dash, but still had trouble clearing: Gateway 8007 - incorrect coding c127 communication error front control unit c1 control unit faulty any suggestions ?
  24. Had the battery tested - just running at 50% after being on trickle over night - it is a new battery aparently. It started much better today then yesterday. On the info display - all I can get is system fault - report to workshop - hopefully it will relearn itself otherwise a friend has the durametric pro. Brent
  25. Hi all - I have tried to search this with no luck. I just got my 2006 997 c2 this week - and it has been parked in the garage. I installed my pigtail - hardwire leads for my battery maintainer and lucky me - cross threaded the nut on the battery post! So after dremeling off the bolt and replacing it - I should be good to go. Issues: 1) Pretty sow to start - The car has been at the dealer for probably 2-3 months with little use and no charging. I have left it on the trickle over night to see if that makes an initial improvemnet then I will get the battery tested and replace if necess
