  1. Panamera Door Panel Removal I found this and it is a great info on how one can remove door panel on the Panamera. This vid shows details on what to watch out for, what to do. If you find yourself wanting to replace any of the switches on the doors, get behind he panel, this vid shows it all. Enjoy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=To4mcrW-vlg Author ciaka Category Panamera (970) - Common Fixes and Repairs Submitted 05/06/2019 07:38 AM

  3. I believe the valve cover gasket kit will come with 2 valve cover gaskets, 2 spark plug gasket sets (one set for 4 plugs, total two gaskets for 8 plugs), plus two seals for camshaft adjuster caps. Will cost about 100 bucks total for oem.
  4. I have an 05 CTT, and it has the feature where once door opens, seat and steering wheel retract to make space. Once driver climbs in and closes door, steering wheel and seat move back into desired pre-programmed position. Well, the steering wheel moves just as always, but the seat does not move anymore. I have to reach and press the memory button to move the seat manually into pre-programmed position, but it does not slide back when I open the door to exit car. Does anyone know where the issue may lie, and where I can start troubleshooting? Greatly appreciate help. Thank you.
  5. Good to hear resolved well. Also glad you have a tool to pull codes is something goes south. Take care and thanks for posting up wih resolution.
  6. Each tire has abs sensor that plugs into the control arm. One of them can go bad. Also, if anyone replaced the hub bearing, and installed new bearing backqards. You would get bad abs too. Just throwing this out in case work done on it.. check connections by unplugging and plugging after you spray with electronics cleaner on each wheel.
  7. Awesome. I will prolly use safety wire or whatever is thin enough to make it go through. Thanks a bunch fellas. No need to spend money where there is no need to spend money. Awesome place here.
  8. I noticed both my washer nozzles in the CTT are starting to act up. The spray coming out appears to look like it is not spraying evenly. Wonder if they can get clogged up, and what the solution can be. Do they need to be replaced? Has anyone tried to fix successfully? Have not really tried to remove and play with them yet. Hope someone has experience with them here. The washer nozzle part numbers is: 955 628 077 01 Thank you for any help.
  9. how hard was it to get to the horns for replacement? What needs to come out to get to them and swap? Easy? Hard? Thanks.
  10. CLICK HERE FOR LINK TO THE CATALOG ONLINE. Choose car model, then year, then gen, click Display button. Save file as PDF. Open PDF file in Acrobat reader and you have access to all the part numbers for your car. Enjoy.
  11. I do not know for sure but I fear this will not be possible without serious tearing into upholstery, dash, trunk, to install necessary harness for these. Porsches are all made per build sheet, not like typical line vehicles like Ford, Chevy, toyota. Customer puts in all his selections, options, etc, into a build list. That goes to the factory and as vehicle gets assembled, only items on the build list make it into the car. So they do not have a universal harness that things plug or unplug from. For this audio, I do not think you will be able to do this without serious work, and expensive too. I hope someone proves me wrong.
  12. As an update, the large T (part of a water hose assembly), made of plastic, cracked right at the T junction, underneath the part of hose slid over the plastic and clamped. There are two Ts on Cayenne Turbos, large and a small one. They are both made of hard plastic. This means, after 40 or 50k miles of replacement with new parts, you will be back in there, replacing yet again. To remedy this, I ordered two aluminum Ts, meaning I will never have to worry about the Ts leaking again. Adding to the crack, I also noticed that the large coolant pipe water hose (short and large rubber hose connecting the large coolant pipe with 2 clamps), was leaking at bottom as well. This was discovered after i replaced the Ts, and did a pressure test on coolant. The problem revealed itself right away. I am waiting for some parts, as I am now replacing all seals on all coolant pipes. It turns out my Porsche dealer had these parts much cheaper than any other place I found it at online. So check dealer near you first. Parts will be here in 2 days. Parts I ordered for the fix of broken Ts - 05 Cayenne Turbo: - Water hose - PN 955 106 322 00, qty: 1 - water hose connecting to left most (passenger side) small cooling pipe with clamps - Water hose - PN 955 106 323 50, qty: 1 - water hose with plastic Ts (large) - cut off metal clamps, put onto new aluminum Ts, use steel clamps - Water hose - PN 948 106 035 51, qty: 1 - water hose with plastic Ts (small) - cut off metal clamps and put onto new aluminum T, use steel clamps - Aluminum T (large) - 1" x 3/4" x 1" - Order Here - Aluminum T (large) - 3/4" x 3/4" x 3/4" - Order Here - Hose clamps large and small - Orileys or your favorite auto parts store Other parts: - Intake gasket - PN 948 110 145 01 - Qty: 2 (one for each bank) - 2FT Flexible Wire Long Reach Hose Clamp Pliers - I would not attempt this without these pliers as some clamps are so deep and tight they cannot be reached with anything else - about 15 bucks off ebay After discovering leaking cooling pipe seals, I ordered the following seals to replace: - PN 999 707 517 41 - Qty: 4 - for small cooling pipes seals - PN 999 707 518 41 - Qty: 2 - for small cooling pipes seals - the driver side pipe - PN 999 707 370 41 - Qty: 4 - for large cooling pipe (2 seals for end going into thermostat and another 2 seals for adapter going into large pipe) - PN 948 106 240 00 - Qty: 1 - short water hose joining large cooling pipe to water housing I reused clamps for the short water hose, but if you want to buy one, PN is 999 512 389 01. My local dealer happened to have all the seals for much cheaper than anywhere online I could find them, had most in stock, and others would arrive within 2 days. So I hope to have this sucker back working this coming weekend. It would be sweet, still very much enjoy driving this car. Here are the pics of pipes ordered, on the metal Ts, and what my hand looked like after completing the swap. Now you should understand why you would need to get cable pliers.
