  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
  6. 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
  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
  14. Hi Bill, I am also about to change the pads on my 2005 Cayenne S, this will be the first time I change any brake pads so I would like to thank you for your write up here. One question after reading this, you mentioned about the grease on the rear pads, what are they and where should it be applied? Same question on front pads too. Are there any other things I should be watching out for? I tend to like to get a detailed procedure list before I dare to move forward with anything on the car... Thanks a BUNCH. Andy
  15. Thank you for the tips. I will try locating a jack that can be used for both cars. If anyone has any suggestion on this, please do let me know. Thanks again, Andy
  16. Thanks for posting the photo on drain plug #2 which is very clear showing where it is. I have been wondering where it was last time I took off all the underbody panels, I had to put them back on since I couldn't locate the plug. And yes those plastic panels are a pain... Andy
  17. Thank you Mark for your helpful tips. I will proceed with care when I have all the parts ready on my hands. Andy
  18. Hello all, I am planning on doing the brake pads on my 2003 996 and 2005 Cayenne S soon, and I wonder-- 1. If the procedures for both vehicles are the same, 2. Is changing the brake fluid a must? 3. Where are the precise jacking points for both cars with a floor jack? 4. Which floor jack should I get that can be suitable for these two vehicles? I found some DIYs from this site, but this is the first time I do brake pads, can someone please tell me what should I be watching out for? Many thanks everyone. Andy
  19. Thanks much guys. I went out and bought the maintainer/charger today. Great help, truly appreciate it. Andy
  20. Hello all, Need some suggestions/help here... I have a 2005 Cayenne S, and will not drive it for more two months. Should I disconnect the battery? If so, should it be the driver seat battery, or the trunk battery? Or both?? Many thanks for your advice. Andy
  21. Thanks all for the instructions. I am still trying to locate an alcantara hand brake with "porshce" emblem, instead of "GT3". Does anyone know if I can just pop of the aluminum "porsche" emblem out and re-use it on the new hand brake? thanks, Andy
