  1. Stopped by the specialist today - it's either the actuator (I hope) or the turbo corroded and stuck itself. Hoping it's the actuator as that's going to be much cheaper .... Going in first week in Jan
  2. Sadly, the error hasn't gone away - I've cleared it a couple of times, but it keeps coming back. Anyone got any ideas what it means?
  3. Hi All My battery died this week in my 997.1 TT (I think killed by a dying Bose amp) and after getting it going again, I went to clear down all the various error codes using my Durametric and noticed a new one P4230 Boost pressure electric actuator It may be part of the dead battery mess, but it wouldn't clear down. Wondered if anyone else had seen it before and what it might mean? Thanks pete S
  4. Thanks Guys. Sorry, I should probably have said .... this is my third TT (996TT, 996 TurboS, 997.1), and this was the first time I've noticed something quite as loud. Now, it might just be the normal thing of I happened to hear it once, and now I'm listening for it, but it's not something I heard before in 6 years or so. I would be more concerned, but as I said, it only last a couple of seconds, then all seems fine. Anyone heard of anything like this being a problem, or just one of those things? ta pete S
  5. A couple of times recently, my '07 997 TT has been really rattle-y when I first started it. First time this lasted for about a second, today for about 3 seconds. After that, it dropped back to normal, and the car ran fine. It sounded like a loose chain maybe, so I wondered if perhaps there was a sticky tensioner? Any ideas? ta pete S
  6. When my wife started up her C2S Cab at the weekend, she got an error on the screen saying something like "Navigation System is not available" as soon as the PCM came on. The rest of it seems to work OK - radio etc.. I wondered if something was up with the DVD, so tried to take that out, but there seems to be no power getting to the DVD drive - at least pressing the eject button doesn't do anything. Is there a seperate fuse for the navi/dvd? Is there somewhere I can look to try and diagnose the problem, or is it a visit to my local specialist? ta pete S
  7. In case anyone else is wondering, I've found the answer myself. If you pull the cover off the Navi DVD (pull the cover away from the bulkhead towards the front of the car at the top and then pull the hole thing upwards), you can then get at both sides of the cover for the CDC. To get the cover off, you just pull it firmly updwards - a little awkward, but I found that you just give it a firm pull and it comes free.
  8. Hi I've recently bought a 997 TT and it has the CDC-4 mounted vertically in the front trunk, next to the DVD for the Nav unit. I want to fit my Dension 500 tomorrow, but can't work out how to get the CDC out so that I can get at the cables and fibre optics. Anyone know how to get it out, and if so, I wondered where anyone had fitted there Dension or the like - there's not a lot of room in there..... pete S
  9. Hi Could someone tell me the size of the Allen key to adjust the height of the Xenon beam - I see the little wite plastic allen socket behind the little rubber bungs, but they look to be quite small and are certainly too far in for my normal allen keys to reach. Is there anthing special about adjusting the Xenon's or is it just like adjusting ordinary headlights. ta pete S
  10. Hi Michel Yes, but that part number is for the 2008 update I think. There's actually a later 2009 update 997 044 902 50, so it may be that that's still the latest, but let's see what they say. pete S
  11. Hi Brendel Yes - I'd seen that, but I don't see anything there which says there's a new version of the maps. The compass view is part of the extended navigation option I think - if you have that. I've sent an email to Porsche customer service - see what they say the latest version is. Will report back. pete S
  12. I've just seen this code on my 997 TT Cab. Anyone got any ideas of what it means? ta pete S
  13. Hi Brendel Have you got a link by any chance - tried to find it on the UK site, but can't. I doin't think the compass is new - isn't that a feature of the extended navigation module? Thx pete S
  14. No question - great as a daily.... I use my Turbo S for the daily commute - always manages to put a grin on my face..
