  1. Thanks guys, Did the pads and rotors last night, the instruction I downloaded is great and very easy to follow. The hardest part is getting out the sensor clips out from the old pads. I bought a pair of Norco jack stands and the saddle is perfect and very secure for our cars, the construction is very tough and the lowest height is 9.5". I did one wheel at a time so took me a little longer. Thanks all for the valuable info. Andy
  2. I also experience the similar issue, but couldn't find out where it was coming from. It would be great if anyone can give some hints here. Thanks Andy
  3. Hi James, Many thanks for the confirmation, this is good to know since I will be working on this next week. Have a great weekend. Andy
  4. Just another shot of all three together (filter, drain plug #1, & drain plug #2). Andy
  5. Hi Loren, I have that downloaded and read through the whole thing. My question though is if it's safe to do just one wheel at a time since if so, the jack stand tends to be off-centered (photo). Any thoughts? Thanks. Andy No, always get the jack stands centered as you could bump the car and it could fall. I like to leave the jack and/or a wheel under the car where I am working just in case. Hi Loren, thanks for your advice. I will make certain that I leave the jack attached as well. Andy

  7. Hi all, I will be replacing pads and rotors for the front end. I will perform one wheel at a time and I wonder if that is a safe idea, or should I jack up the whole front to work on both wheel at a time? Attached some photos where I jacked the car up at the left rear jacking point, and a jack stand at the left front point. Do these look safe to you? Especially the placement of the jack stand. thanks, Andy
  8. The stamp on the pad backing also has the manufacturer's name "Textar" on it, with the number T4045 FF (46P). Any thoughts if it is the correct front pads for a 2003 C2?? Much thanks, Andy
  9. For my 2003 996, I purchased the front pads from Suncoast. Part# on the package (and part# info from this site) is 996.352.949.03. But on the actual pads, the stamp says 996.352.940.03. Are they the same or did I get something incorrect for my car? Thanks, Andy
  10. That's what I was hoping for, but the sound was too loud to be normal. I thought some of the folks here might have K&N filters put in so I wanted to see if this happens on theirs also before I take it to the dealer for a checkup. Thanks, Andy
  11. The air sucking sound is like as if you place a strong vacuum cleaner on the carpet, when I step hard on the gas pedal. The sound appears for only 1 second... Any thoughts? Andy
  12. Hi, I have a 2005 Cayenne S (CPO). I notice when I step on the gas pedal a little too aggressively, there is a big and abnormal "Air Sucking" sound produced from the engine bay. If I step on it softly to accelerate, then I won't hear it. Would you have any suggestion what it may be? Could it be the K&N air filters? Many thanks, Andy
  13. Hi Bill, This is great. And, thanks for all the great tips. I am also gathering info on doing the 996 brake pads/rotors, possibly will work it out first since the "brake wear" light is already on. The Cayenne will be next. These are very helpful tips you have for me, I thank you once again. Cheers, Andy
