  1. Hello, if everyone read my earlier post about losing the lug key I had to use an easy out bolt remover to get them out. Does anyone know the size? I listed the part # below. but it doesnt have the size specs. Does anyone know the vw equivalent #? My local dealer wants $12 +tax each.
  2. Its funny the other lugs do not have any rust but this one does...
  3. Well...I used an easy out type bolt remover http://www.amazon.com/Astro-7402-Damaged-Removal-2-Piece/dp/B009OXJCIU/ref=sr_1_15?ie=UTF8&qid=1396909760&sr=8-15&keywords=lug+nut+remover 3 of them came out fairly easy but one was on so tight we had to use a metal tube on top of the 2ft breaker bar. Now I have to find a replacement lug set.
  4. I understand the purpose and am not trying to be disrespectful but an actual owner should be able to go to a dealer and buy a replacement lug key without having to be taken to the cleaners. I just tried calling the dealer back and suggested what PERF did and they said "Absolutely not, there is too much liability". "You have to bring it in and we will replace all lugs and install new ones" One hour of service plus lugs. He quoted me a different price which is now $348. I told him I spoke with a person yesterday for $298. He said I was quoted incorrectly
  5. Need your thoughts and help. Lost my lug key. Called the local dealer they won't sell me the key, they will sell a complete set of lugs with new key with uninstall/install for a price $298. Are you kidding me. anyone know how to get this lug out?
  6. Here is the code from Durametric P2186 Throttle/Pedal Pos. Sensor/Switch D/E voltage correlation-implausible signal, test conditions are not complete fault is currently active and is not causing a DTC light.
  7. Need everyones thought on this one. My04 S. Over time my idle rpm starts to drop and pulse when stopped. eventually it will throw a PSM and using Durametric I have P2186 Throttle body sensor. I cleaned the throttle body, cleared the codes and she purrs like a kitten. Slowly day after day she will start to drop rpm coming to stop and start the whole cycle again. it takes 3 to 4 weeks. I have checked throttle body, coils, plugs, fuel rail. I don't know what else to check?
  8. I had a new gremlin pop its head. Airbag fault message on my '04 S. Pulled the code with Durametric and code 1217 came up. Checked Renntech and wouldnt you know it this is a common issue with a TSB 9/04 6963. So I went to work following the TSB and its now gone. Steps Disconnect Negative battery cable Discounnect wiring harness connectors to seat (includes airbag yellow connectors) Unbolt/remove seatbelt harness Unbolt seat and remove Turn seat upside down Follow tsb and find the two wire connector black and blue wires Clip wires Solder blue to blue and Solder Black to black Shrinkwrap and zip tie back together Reverse and put seat back in Cayenne Link to TSB http://www.renntech.org/forums/index.php?app=downloads&module=display&section=download&do=confirm_download&id=839 I forgot to take a picture so i attached the one I used for reference from a post at Pelican
  9. It seems like the reasonable thing to do since it ran smooth for a bit. What version of coils? I believe they are now at 09 or 10(last 2 digits) anything older or shows any cracks replace them all. Many of us got them from Suncoastparts.com
  10. Just picked up some OEM Bosch Wiper blades from Amazon for $37 for the pair. Thought its a pretty good price http://www.amazon.com/Bosch-3397118942-Equipment-Replacement-Bracketless/dp/B00141O2M6/ref=sr_1_1?s=automotive&ie=UTF8&qid=1387084649&sr=1-1&keywords=3397118942
  11. Hello All, my PSM is back on my '04 S. I cleared the codes, disconnected the negative battery cable and PSM comes back after about a day or so. No CEL on only PSM. Error codes P2186 Throttle/Pedal Pos. Sensor/Switch D/E voltage correlation-implausible signal, test conditions are not complete fault is currently active and is not causing a DTC light. P2174 Throttle/Pedal Pos. Sensor/Switch E circuit-implausible signal, test conditions are not complete fault is currently active and is not causing a DTC light. 470 CAN 1314 DME Some background...the first time this error code came up i checked the enging throttle body, cleaned it and made sure all connections were secure. Additionally i replaced both batteries last summer. Now what should I check/replace?
  12. I have never experienced this before but all Cayennes are AWD vehicles. The first thing I would do is disconnect the negative cable for a few minutes. The black cable runs from the battery under the drivers seat to a ground bolt on the floor. Lift of the carpet just in front of the front seat and you can see the bolt and black cable.
  13. Thanks Loren, I just plugged the car in again and now I have a 470 and 1314 DME Control module error. No other errors. I am going to clear them, take it out for test drive and recheck again....The last repair was the cam sensor and left turn signal bulb.
  14. I replaced both batteries last summer at the same time. I have no other faults at this time other than the 470.
  15. Hello All, I am still getting the following error on my 2004 Cayenne S. I used my Durametric to pull the code. I have been having some issues lately. I had P0011 Cam shaft sensor go bad and I replaced it. I have cleared the codes and disconnected the negative battery cable over night. If I run the durametric it will show fault cleared with no faults but as soon as I drive it and test it the code shows up. Any help to figure out what to do is greatly appreciated. 470 CAN Comfort in single-wire operation-Open Circuit, test conditions are not-completed, fault is currently active and is not causing a DTC light.
  16. Definitely do not need to remove the exhaust. I jacked up the rear only and had plenty of room. if you have a set of air tools it makes it much easier. if your going to replace the flex disc don't secure the bearing. disassemble the center support and then replace the flex disc. This allows extra room and movement to get the flex disc out and on. The hardest part of the job is razor blading off the rubber.
  17. Just realized...The title is wrong. It should say CARDAN SHAFT INSTALLED VERTEX ESP 2 PIECE SUPPORT. Don't know how or why I put in "used" nothing is used... Hey All, Well my struggles continue. My Cardan shaft bearing failed for the second time on my '04 Cayenne S. The original was replaced around 60K+ and this one failed at 135. Since it wasn't covered under warranty I opted for the Vertex 2 piece Clamp on solution. Once the bearing ring is cut and removed, I used a razor blade and cut off the rubber. With a really good razor blade and mechanics gloves I was surprised how cleanly I was able to get off all of the rubber. Don't get me wrong it took a lot patience and time but it came out really clean. I then pride off the two sealant bearing rings and carefully repacked the bearings. The bearing ring spun smoothly but after watching the Vertex video I decided what the heck I will pack them. You would be surprised how much new grease I was able to pack in there. Pressed the rings back in and started clamping the Vertex Supports in. There is one thing that really pissed me off about the Vertex EPS solution. They did not provide a long allen wrench. I mean really, for $480 throw in an extended length allen wrench. I had to struggle with a normal size one as I didn't have the correct extended one. Now onto the rubber flex disc. I called vertex and they said if your current one is in good condition you don't need to replace it. Put the supports on, drive and if a vibration is present then put on the flex disc. Well, I just came in for another beer before I button everything up but I think I am going to put on the flex disc while I have the main support bracket off. I will let you know how that goes in a bit.
  18. Quick update... Changed the Passenger Side MAF and the Cam Sensor Bank 1(passenger side). All errors gone except 470? No CEL
  19. I am must be losing it...I cant find the OEM part number for the CAM sensor on the Katalog site. Anyone know it? http://www.porsche.com/all/media/pdf/originalparts/usa/9PA_USA_KATALOG.pdf
  20. So how does one focus on the CAN bus code? I will do the normal things that I know of...check the wiring under the driver seat...disconnect the negative cable and reconnect.
  21. Okay...here it goes...The last time it went into PSM it cost me over $3500 and that's after I replaced several parts my self (both MAF, Throttle pedal assembly, cleaned throttle body, cam sensor bank 1 replaced) ..Anyways...I made it home and plugged it in and have the following: Durametric Codes P0112 (Intake Air Temp Sensor 1) P0343 (Camshaft Position Sensor A bank 1) P2186 (Throttle/ Pedal Pos Sensor switch D/E P2174 Throttle/Pedal Position Sensor /switch E P1538 Throttle Adjust unit lower mechanical stop relearning implasusible P2169 Throttle/Pedal Position Sensor switch D P1535 Throttle adjust unit test aborted P0103 MAF P0470 CAN P1314 DME P1320 Air con control module Cleared codes re-ran durametric the only codes staying are P0112, P0470 and P1320 Need some thoughts/suggestions... Anyone in the NorthCarolina area with PIWIS or PST2???
