  1. It is not a hard task at all. Re-installing the wheel well liner is the most difficult task. A note of caution - there is a tire pressure sensor that is in the way of removing the washer fluid tank. If you don't remove it first you may break the bracket - like I did. Not a large cost just a delay in the repair waiting for th replacement part. Porsche service manual did not mention this (or I missed it).
  2. I have used both. I had to replace the vertex shaft a few times (grease leaked out of the end) then went with colorado and it is lasting.
  3. I just finished mine belt change on my TTS and agree with voodoocat regarding the steps and the hardest parts. Glad I did it as my belt had many deep cracks at 103k miles.
  4. I did not replace the fex disc the first time and had trouble with the replacement shaft - it eventually failed in about 6 months. I contacted vertex and they said I should have replaced the flex disc at the same as the shaft and i think the online warrenty statement said that at the time i had the failure (i don't remember that language in the warranty at the time i first bought the replacement shaft). Regardless of when the warranty language was changed (if it ever was changed) they honored their warranty and sent me a new replacement shaft and I bought a new flex disc to go with it. I di
  5. Vertexauto.com is a great place to get a rebuilt shaft. Also be sure to buy a new guido (flex disk). They will give you a warranty (i used the warranty and they were great to work with). Easy to change if you are mechanically inclinded. A helper is also a plus.
  6. You likely have the can HI and can LO wires mixed up. Try switching them and see if you get sound.
  7. I have replaced the PCM with a kenwood head unit, back-up camera, etc. Not that hard to do. I used a MOST-HUR to interface the Kenwood unit with the fiber optic ring and the bose system. Do search for MOSTHUR or MOST-HUR. can also seach youtube for videos.
  8. Thanks for the comments. I am having an indie do the repair. The hassel of taking the parts to a shop to have the bearing pressed out and then in relative to the lost cost (2-2.5 hours of labor) for the repair just does not justify me doing it myself - this time. If I were not so busy, would definetly do it myself. Don't think it is that complicated. Magnetic side info - thanks that is what my repair manual indicates also. 2GOFAST
  9. Well, my 06 TTS has a bad front left wheel bearing. Anyone have any experience changing this? I plan to do it myself and am looking for advice. I have seen bearing kits that includes replacement bolts - i think i will get one of those. All comments welcome. Thanks 2GOFAST
  10. Well, I went ahead and ordered one. Was told there were only 2 left from their initial batch. I figure it will be a lot easier and quicker to do the repair with this product then to remove the drive shaft assembly. If my bearing goes out, then I will just replace the bearing at a later time as I can schedule the repair (bearing failure can be predicted/heard whereas this failure was pretty instantaneous). The cost is high but the ease of repair is worth it to me. FYI - 2 year warranty and was told it has been tested for over 12 months on a cayenne TT that was extensively driven prior
  11. So my drive shaft bearing damper gave out (2006 TTS 65K miles) and in looking for repair options I came across this brand new product: http://www.vertexauto.com/ShowItem/293811%20Porsche%20Cayenne%20Drive%20Shaft%20Repair%20Bearing%20Support.aspx http://www.youtube.com/user/VertexPorscheVideos#p/a/u/0/kP5IQxph_yY So, I am looking at doing this repair instead of replacing the entire drive shaft assembly. Has anyone used this yet?? Thanks 2GOFAST
