  1. I recently got stranded on Mt. Hood in -15C ~ -20C weather in my month old diesel as it would not start. The verdict from Porsche was that non-winterized fuel purchased in Portland (where the weather to that point had been around +5C) had gelled. Searching on the web (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Winter_diesel_fuel) this does look plausible, but I'd be interested in hearing thoughts from the community. Thanks! Andrew
  2. I'm sure I saw this here before but now that I need it I can't find it. I need to put the Cayenne turbo script back on the rear of my 2006 CTT. Can someone please post the layout specs so that I can position it correctly? Thanks.
  3. I recently purchased a 1994 RS America that had been in storage for a number of years. After flushing the fuel tank, replacing all of the fluids/filters/plugs/fuel lines etc.), replacing the TPS (for the Motec engine management system) and a number of other items it now passes emissions in the state of Washington and is an absolute blast to drive. One minor issue I still have is that the central locking/alarm system refuses to work. Does anyone have any information about this? A wiring/circuit diagram would be very useful here. Thanks! Flav.
  4. Great write up thanks. Helped with both my front and rear rotor/pad replacement:
  5. Perhaps this for replacing the pump? 12. Disconnect pressure pipe on the servo oil cooler (line leading to the hydraulic fluid tank). Have a suitable plug ready for closing the line (hydraulic fluid escapes!). Collect emerging hydraulic fluid in a suitable container. 13. Fill the hydraulic fluid tank. Use a suitable auxiliary hose (approx. 10 - 15 cm, shop-made) to carry hydraulic fluid that emerges during rinsing into a suitable container (approx. 1.5 litres). 14. Rinse the hydraulic system with the engine running by turning the steering several times to the right or left stop, and adjust the hydraulic fluid level several times as required. Vehicle must be lowered onto the wheels for this. The tank must not run on empty while the engine is running (two workers required). 15. Fit the pressure pipe on the servo oil cooler. 16. Bleed the hydraulic system with the engine running by turning the steering several times to the right or left stop, and adjust the hydraulic fluid level several times as required (Page 296 'Test and assembly work on power steering') . Thanks for all the info everyone. As soon as the Pentosin 202 arrives I'll flush the fluids. Andrew
  6. Thanks Don, In another post you refer to a 2-man Porsche approved method. Do you have any further info? No problems if you don't as the method you suggest sounds simple enough. Andrew
  7. I have a 2006 Cayenne Turbo with dodgy looking power steering hydraulic fluid. Is flushing and replacing this a relatively easy thing to do? If anyone can send pointers on how to do this I would appreciate it. Thanks. Andrew
  8. I believe that the Porsche part number for both model years is 955 044 000 30, so they should be the same. Please send me a PM so we can discuss price.Thanks. Andrew
  9. I'm trying to find a good set of roof rails for my '06 Turbo and was wondering of anyone had purchased any of the non-OEM rails from the plethora available on EBay. And, if they had, what the quality of then is like. I'd prefer used OEM rails, but they seem hard to find... Thanks. Andrew
  10. Its' almost that time of year again, so I thought I'd ask the list for winter/snow/ice tire recommendations. I live in the Pacific Northwest, so nothing too extreme required. FWIW, the tires have to go on 20" rims, so I know that does narrow the field a little. According to TireAndRack .com these tires are: Michelin Latitude Alpin: Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1 Pirelli Scorpion Ice & Snow Pirelli Scorpion Ice & Snow RFT Anyone hee have experience with these tires? Thanks. Andrew
  11. Slightly silly question but I'm getting some scratches removed from the rear door on my CTT and so the "Cayenne Turbo" logos need to be removed/replaced. I was thinking only replacing the "turbo" logo and painting it something more interesting than boring silver. The shop doing the body work wanted way too much to do this so I was thinking of doing it myself. Has anyone else on the list tired this already and can suggest appropriated prep and paint? Also, what adhesive is used to bond the logo to the body? Thanks! Andrew
