  1. I had my shop try this fix on my CTTS and so far so good, we reinforced it more than he did. http://rennlist.com/forums/porsche-cayenne-forum/825226-cardan-shaft.html
  2. I had same cracked hose, and T pipe cracked, also when changing air filters I noticed the hose attached to air box had come off, excited to think this could be the problem, but it wasn't. Check your hose, it's visible with a green connector on passenger side airbox.
  3. I have the same exact problem on my 04 S, I also notice when I enter my garage which is at fairly steep angle it tends to cause the idle to dip more so than a normal stop and causes the car to vibrate. I just did the idle reset as well.
  4. Loren, I need to do the same thing, can you direct me to a direct link to the diagram? Thanks
  5. Congrats on your 996 and welcome to the board, the dealer sells the kit or check eBay. I'd stick with the factory carbon.

  7. Yes, but dealer confirmed coolant, leaky plastic pipes. Do you have a TSB for the replacement pipes?
  8. It's ATF, coming from that black piece in the middle picture around the seal. No warranty, just my handy hands. Loren any PDF's on the replacing that seal?
  9. Well she has sprung a leak....I've found where it's coming from... Any takers on the fluid and where?
  10. I can't believe know one has suggested pull the instrument cluster and pop the bulb out :)
  11. From what I recall the only screws are the two on the side, and also another one that is in the right corner behind that headlight switch your trying to replace. Once those are out, it does take some effort to pull it out. Hope this helps
  12. I've been called a lot of things, and genius isn't on of them :thumbup: Glad it worked for you!
  13. Loren any PDF's on installing mud flaps, not for me! a friend :)
  14. Silver replacement came from ebay. This info is for the 996 airbag removal, the same would apply to the Cayenne There are two hex screws that hold the airbag in place, you can see them behind the wheel. Unplug the two plugs using a flat screwdriver for one, and pull of the other. Be sure to leave the ignition off while unplugging the airbag, otherwise it will turn the airbag light on. After you have the airbag out you will notice that its surround by a black plastic housing, simply release all the black tabs and the airbag itself comes right out. You can then see the back of the go
  15. 6. install the strut back in the housing and don't tighten yet 7. place a jack under the shock to compress it so you can put it on the arm. It kind of hard. You need to be a little strong. Once on the arm the bolt wont align. Use a screw driver to lift up the shock just a little on the arm so you can push the bolt through. Once through assemble every thing back. In this pic I used spring compressors to tighten the springs down so we could get the bolt on Old & New bumpstops Thats about it..
  16. All back together Rear 1. Remove the long 18mm bolt connecting the strut to the arm 2. Disconnect both sides of the sway bar. 17mm open end and 15mm nut the bar should swing easy on the mounts. 3.Use pry bar, screwdriver to force the shock of its mount. 4. Go in the car remove the pannel behind the rear seat. It has no clips. Or for the cab, lower the top so the lid is open, then release the two wires to lift the back of the top up, one wire on each side, you can then access the area where the top of the strut is 5. Remove the 3 15mm nuts to drop the strut. Once the s
  17. 1. Remove the shorud on the trunk with a torx screwdriver. t-20 2. Loosen the 18mm sway bar bolt that is in strut and remove 3. Loosen and remove the nuts that connect abs wires and brake line so you can move the arm more up and down. You might have to take out the caliper off the hub. 4. remove the 3 13mm bolts from the top of the trunk that holds the strut to the body. 5. Push down the arm and the strut will be in the wheel well. 6. this is the hard part push down the strut and pull it towards you to pull out of the wheel well. Becareful not to hit your fender. You m
  18. Well I decided to bring her down a bit, I have had a set of Gemballa Lowering Springs (made by H&R) in my garage for the last year. Gert helped me with the all the parts needed, I purchased Bilstein Sport Shocks, Euro rear bumpstops, also upgraded stabilizer bars. After looking at the factory stabilizer bar up front, I really didn't see much of a difference in the upgraded one, and it didn't look like a simple project to remove and install the new bar. So I passed on the stabilizer bars since Im really only looking for a lower look and slightly better handling on the track. Since the 996 o
  19. Just did this on a friends 996 airbag, haven't attempted my Cayenne yet. I just put the silver crest over the gold, looks good to me
  20. Silver Crest on ebay You can't order them from the dealer..no part numbers
  21. Hmm not sure which holes your referring to.... I do know that the center bumper support bracket has to be cut in order for the TT bumper to fit correctly, can you take a pic of what your referring to.
  22. There are no part numbers for this because its not made by Porsche, they are aftermarket.. check ebay for best prices..
  23. Pics of the holes drilled.. Clicks on pics for high res shots.. Before During After
