I am at 150k miles, all highly cared for, soft miles (lol).
Recently, I noticed that there is a noise coming from the front wheel area. Namely, it looks like noise related to either the front driver axle, or the front steering knuckle bearing. My question is, does anyone know a good way to isolate and test to determine which one it is? Some test or check that will tell me it is the wheel bearing vs the axle. The noise that I hear is an increased noise sounding like road noise, but I know it is noisier than before, substantially. The noise gets more pronounced at above 60mph. If I was to describe the noise more, it would be a low sounding hum like sound, which increases and is especially evident above 60. It does appear to be coming from that front driver wheel area. Hope this helps describing. Help is greatly appreciated.
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

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.
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.
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.
ciaka started following Bose or Burmester upgrade, Finally got a Durametric, and boy do I have issues..., Window washer nozzles acting up and and 3 others
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.
i would ensure emergency blinkers are on and engine is off when you clear faults in all modules.
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.
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.
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.

Try to reset PCM, or pull battery cable and leave off for an hour or two. Hope this helps.
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.
