  1. well it didn't come free. I had to show him around our new Tesla Model S and give him a test drive!
  2. looks like i found the part number -996-110-129-53-M100 . $122 on pelican.
  3. thanks guys!!. one of my neighbors who is a porsche mechanic was able to come down and right away said the purge valve. he has seen it do exactly what i described many times. now i am just trying to figure out the part number.
  4. Ill check that, but wouldnt the purge valve show up as a different code? thanks.
  5. just had a CEL come on and durametric is showing: P0440 - Porsche fault code 93 - Fuel tank ventilation minor leak. checked the simple thing of the gas cap, and while it looks good, I will probably order a new one. any other ideas as to where to troubleshoot this? forgot to add, recently i have had a couple of occasions where the car has been difficult to start. having to crank for a while for it to finally start. stalled once on me at a light , and cranked for maybe 15 seconds for it to fire up. the other time was after getting gas, and had to crank twice for 20 seconds to get it to start.
  6. both left and right temperature controls are set to 64 degrees. left side is very noticably colder than the right side. both at the center vent and each side vent. what is the cause? servo? and is it a servo buried above the glolvebox. thanks
  7. Hey Loren. I am also doing the rear brakes and rotors, and it is definitely different from the front brakes. First question, the caliper bolts holding on the caliper are a 12 point star design (ie like a torx bit) not like the front which you can take off with a regular socket. Do you know what size that star bolt is? I tested with a T60 torx bolt and it is quite a bit smaller than what is needed. and do you know anyplace to buy the required 12 point bit? here is a photo of the bolt. FWIW... these bits are called triple square. XZN is the technical designation. I bought a set of them from Amazon.com believe it or not. I have not used them yet to do the brakes. Here is a tiny url to the set that I bought. http://tinyurl.com/o7tw4o FYI as I understand the torque settings for the bolts holding the calipers in place is 200 ft lbs. Make sure you have a good set of these bits before you apply that much torque to remove them. As soon as I find out what size I need for those bolts I will be buying the snap-on version of that size thanks to the fact their set is 176 bucks! Thanks. I borrowed one from my neighbor who is a indy Porsche technician. Yeah, the front caliper bolts are 200 ft/lbs. but he said the rears are 120 ft/lbs. I just tried getting either one of the ones on the left side off, and no luck. the bottom one is the only one I have room to really usesome force to get it to move and no such luck. the top one, I can just barely get the bit on the bolt( due to a stabilizer arm or something being in the way), so no luck with even trying with that one. I have all of the parts, so I am going to take them down to their shop and see what they will charge just for the install. thanks Mudman. Guess I'll have to get one more tool for the tool box :)

  10. i think I used a small screwdriver with a little bit of tape around the end to prevent scratching the lens.
  11. that is very good information. Our display has done that (the top and bottom) for the past two years, and 2 weeks ago was at a Porsche dealer to fix the coolant distribution pipes, and my wife picked it up and the display did not work at all. Of course, they had no idea and it wasn;t there fault!! (as they said) even though it had been working normal for a long time. They changed out the LCD with one from another they had lying around, and it has been working ever since. we'll see. Which ground did you disconnect? Just the battery or is there something else I am missing. and thanks for the update.
  12. got it. reset via durametric, and now we will see when it comes on next. thanks all.
  13. probably a dumb question, but hey, you got to ask them sometimes :P !! just did an oil change on my 04 cayenne S. ( and I forgot to take some photos for the DIY :oops: .I did not have the service reminder light for the oil change but was at the mileage and time that I wanted to perform the change. So, the question, do I need to hook up my Durametric to reset the Service light, even though it isn't on? If I do not, when or will it trigger for the next oil change? thanks, and I will take some pictures on the next oil change. second time doing it and it is very easy. The hardest part is taking the time to get the 2 panels off. And be forewarned, the oil out of the front drain plug comes out extremely quick and with some force!!
