  1. Hi Loren,


    I was able to crawl back under the car and get the part numbers directly from the hoses. These two small hoses sit right below the Tiptronic transfer case and it seems that if you get the somewhat common leak on the Tiptronic transfer case gaskets the hot ATF oil drips right on top of them and the heat seems to deform them a bit over time.


    They are shown in the diagram below as Number 41  and Number 42. Part numbers 99610621275 and 99610622275



  2. Hey all,


    Looking for the part numbers for the two small rubber hoses that connect to two tubes that run directly under the transfer case on 997.1 Turbo Tiptronic. I'm attaching a photo the two hoses I need are the ones shown inside the red box.


    Thanks in advance.



    (I don't remember where I got this photo. I'll give credit if I can figure it out.)

  3. Just as the subject asks. Anyone have a list of Approved TRANSMISSION oils for 997.1 Turbo Tiptronic?


    From my research it looks like the Tiptronics in the 997.1 Turbo are actually made by Mercedes Benz (722.6 transmission model). Can anyone confirm this? If it's true it looks like Fuchs Titan ATF 4134 might be a good choice because it has Mercedes 236.14 approval.


    Any insight anyone might have?


    Thanks in advance.

  4. Old thread but bumping this up bc I am having similar issue. 05 Cayenne Turbo is making a tapping sound mainly on deceleration (when I let off throttle) at lower speeds. Sound seems to be coming from passenger side front wheel area, happens when driving straight ahead. Seems to be quieted by application of brakes or driving in lower height with air suspension.


    About 2 years ago I did the "Jimi fix" on the cardan shaft center support and that is still intact. Sounds like it could be drive shaft related but doesn't really sound like it's coming from center of truck.


    Not seeing any visual damage to driveshafts or CV shafts/joints at wheels. Any ideas?


    Thanks in advance.

    Well, its early days, but here is what I can share......I had an SUV, now I have a truck :-).  The ride is ruined, its a lot harsher than the road tyres.  There is a whine, although not too bad.  The car is fine up to about 140kph (not been any faster), and around town you dont notice the difference in noise.  Out of town, its a bit of worse, but really OK.  Will report back when done a decent long trip.  


    As expected its a trade off, the fear of punctures on trails was too great.  having had both old and new tyres side by side when not mounted. the difference in flex is huge.  Will report back on sand performance once I've had a chance.


    I've gone quite aggressive, lets see if that pays off in the long run.  


    Hey smithh,


    Any updates on the 265/65-18 setup? Thanks ?

  6. Thanks Loren! So as long as they're both Coupes I should be good as far as fitting.


    My original seats are draped (supple leather) and I recently bought a beautiful set of OEM factory black painted hard back Sport seats. Looking to change my rear seats to non-draped/non-supple.


    Do you know if ... For the leather itself,(specifically black leather) is there any different type of leather or is all 996 black leather the same grain/texture/finish?


    Thank again!

  7. Hey guys,

    I have found quite a few threads regarding the Porsche approved gear oils for 6MT and the front diff. But I want to verify if there is a current or updated list that someone could post up?

    If I'm not mistaken Mobilube PTX is one of the approved oils but I have read a few threads that mention a Shell gear oil as well. I believe it was called Shell Transaxle 75w-90 but I think the name has been changed to Shell Spirax S5 ATE 75w-90.

    I am getting ready to order a 20 liter container of Shell Spirax S5 ATE 75w-90 and I'd just like to make sure it is Porsche approved for our manual trans and front diff.

    Thanks in advance!

    BTW I've attached a pdf of the datasheet for the Shell Spirax S5 ATE and a small screenshot below of where it states that it was previously called Shell Transaxle.




  8. Hey guys,

    Back in April (2015) I posted about a black 03 GT2 that was going to be auctioned in Barret Jackson. It went for $82,500 as some of you know.

    Link to that old thread: http://www.renntech.org/forums/topic/48291-gt2-on-barrett-jackson-todaylive-on-discovery-ch/#entry266406

    Well now a very similar (at first I thought it was the same car with it's original wheels swapped back on, but the VIN's are not the same) black 2003 GT2 will be auctioned by Auctions America on July 18. They are estimating $110,000 to $140,000.

    Will be VERY interesting to see if this estimate is reached! Would be awesome for current 996 GT2 owners. Not so good for those looking to buy a 996 GT2 at the moment..Lol... I don't think it could possibly hurt 996TT owners since at least it is showing some respect for the platform as a whole ;)

    Anyway, just a heads up to those that might be interested. Also, I am not in any way affiliated with either of these cars. (though I wish I was, lol).

  9. Not sure if someone may have posted this already but figured I'd throw it up...


    Live coverage starts at 2pm eastern. I'm curious what it will sell at. No reserve


    You can also stream the auction live at Barret Jackson website. The GT2 may or may not come up before they start broadcasting at 2pm on Discovery channel. Auction started at 11 am eastern.

  10. Hi Guys,

    I am thinking about having a steering wheel custom upholstered for my 2005 CTT. Rather than have my stock one re-done I think I would rather buy a used one to have re-done (then put away my stock wheel). Is it possible to visually tell without the airbag on the wheel if it has HEAT? is there a way to tell by the part number on the sticker on the wheel?

    I am looking at 2 different steering wheels that have the following numbers on them: 7L5419091S/5Z3 and 7L5419091K/5Z3

    Thank you in advance for any information and/or guidance!

  11. Hey guys,

    My 05 CTT came with factory hitch and wiring, it also has a brake controller mounted under the dash (installed at P dealer by previous owner). My trailer has no brakes and uses a 4 pin light plug so I purchased a 7 pin to 4 pin adapter locally.

    When I plug the trailer lights in I only get a continuously flickering light from the passenger side trailer light. Nothing else lights up.

    I also have a small "trailer light tester" which has 3 LED's on it one is labeled TAIL the others LT and RT. When I plug this tester in I get all three LEDs flickering continuously. I am guessing this tester does not work properly because it uses LEDs and does not create enough resistance.

    I have tried searching quite a bit and there are a lot of trailer light threads but I'm still not sure what I should try next to trouble shoot this. I have tested the trailer lights on there own and they are working but when I plug them into the truck I have no luck.

    I have attached a photo of my 7 to 4 adapter as well as the tester.

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
