  1. I had to do this to both sides of my 2004 Cayenne Turbo. Before, it would throw errors and have intermittent failing lights, mostly turn signals. Afterward, not a single problem. It should not be a tight fit, however. The short harness allows a fair amount of room to fully seat those connectors before sliding the assembly back in the rails and locking them down. I agree that the design is lacking!
  2. I believe that is your evaporative canister that captures fuel fumes.
  3. Oh how I hate TPMS. More trouble than benefit, IMO. Who didn't check their tires monthly anyway?
  4. 2004 CTT w/smoked rear LED lights and 22's. My beater to accompany the 2007 Carrera S Cabrio.
  5. Here's one solution: http://www.atbs.com.tw/product_TPMS_Module_E.htm no matter what system you get you have to have transmitters and the receiver. The iPhone App is free.
  6. Hello. Had moisture issues (cracked lens) and intermittent failures from it. Got the smoked LED assemblies for the rear. Perfect. Direct replacement and a joy. Under $500 from a Left Coast seller. Do it. 2004 Cayenne Turbo.
  7. My owner's manual says a D1 "low temperature" start-off relates to engine temperature rather than ambient temperature. Mine is always that way as well.
  8. If you really like them, get 4 rears and 2 fronts. That way you'll be covered for a while when they go away. I personally couldn't stand them on my car. Functionally fine but the noisiest high performance tire ever, in my experience. Couldn't wear 'em out fast enough to get rid of them. Michelin or Bridgestone much nicer for me.
  9. And you know this because of your current or former employment with Porsche or a tire manufacturer supplying N rated tires? Just curious. This is from a very credible source: "...This N-rating isn’t free. It comes at a price. All of that development and testing costs the tire manufacturers and Porsche a penny or two. For instance, one of the most popular tires for a newer Porsche is the new Michelin Pilot Super Sport (Max Performance Summer) 265/35/ZR19 N0. It can be purchased from TireRack.com for $419.00 each. The same tire, without the N0-rating but with the exact same specs is offered by TireRack.com for $297.00 each...." http://www.pedrosgarage.com/Site_5/For_the_Nth_time.html You want only N-rated, fine. You don't feel you need to pay the premium for N-rated, fine. And as was previously noted, if your re-shoeing a Cayenne, don't think you're dealing with a GT3.
  10. I've got WINRUN 285/35x22s KF997 106W on my 2004 CTT. Wear rating is 400. Relatively new but quiet and smooth. $498.00
  11. Had to re-glue mine, too. Used Gorilla Glue and a brace to press it tight as the glue set. Just find something that will fit very snugly from the passenger rear seat to the back of the passenger front seat, without damaging the passenger seat, of course! Worked fine and is holding well now after 6 months.
  12. Good luck. The link I posted describes the issue with the LCD display. Whether it's lines dropping or a dimming issue doesn't matter. Check further. It's the connection. Oh, i have an instrument cluster from a 2004 model. LCD has no issues. PM me if you want to talk about it. I've changed my cluster out with zero issues.
