  1. Many thanks for posting this tutorial. I changed my purge valve this morning. With these instructions, took no more than 1.5 hours including setup and cleanup. Only thing I might add, is to partially reset the metal clips on the injector wiring connections before plugging back together. Somehow I had the foresight to do this. I think it was because I realized, as I was unclipping them, that reconnecting was going to be a PITA. It wasn't.
  2. Thank you Loren. It's time to order some parts and spend a weekend on the Cayenne. Battery added to the list of rotors, pads, tailgate lifters. Need to pick up a set of triple square sockets.
  3. Hope someone is still receiving follow-ups on this thread. I have the same model Cayenne with the same symptom; just started yesterday. What were you able to determine, and what was the resolution, of the wimpy alarm siren? I still have the original battery: was headed down the thought process of battery needing to be replaced. Maybe that's not yet the case. Thanks! Dave
  4. Loren,

    In March I oisted a DIY tutorial titled "Cayenne S Water Pump Replacement" which was approved, and I received an automated email from you. I received a message from another member looking for the tutorial but we can't find it. Was it deleted?

    Thanks, Dave

  5. Cayenne S Water pump replacement This forum is a little light of DIYs so I thought I'd document the water pump R&R my buddy and I did today on my '05 Cayenne S. The old pump was rattling at ~80K miles, and I figured it better to replace before it totally let go. I dropped the car at his house while I went to pick up the pump and meet a guy for a lunch meeting. When I got back to his place an hour-and-a-half later he had already removed the front splash guard, drained about a gallon-and-a-half of coolant into a bucket, and removed the water pump. Pretty nice. All wor

  8. Hey, I've been searching the forum without much success finding DIY experiences from Cayenne S water pump replacements. Maybe it's not yet a common problem. My '05 has about 80K miles on it. I bought the car in Atlanta and added the Certified warranty. It expired in early January. I was able to get quite a bit of work done from it, including the metal coolant pipe retrofit under the manifold about 5 months ago. In my opinion, they should have replaced the water pump while in the system.<BR><BR>Any way, has anyone done a water pump? I'd like to partially drain the radiator be
