  1. Thanks Loren. I tried that several times, doesn't seem to help, but I can always try again.
  2. Hi all, I wanted to change the tacho gauge face (from black to white) on my 4S, so I followed a guide, carefully pried of the dial finger, put it back carefully, but since themn my tacho no longer works (I know, stupid me ...). It stays on 0 rpm Any idea if this can be fixed and how it can be fixed ?
  3. It should indeed. It looks like it does, but still I can't send a cruise control command to light up the green light. I send an email to Porsche dealer if I can hop in for a quick PIWIS activation, no answer yet ... I'll keep you up to date.
  4. Hi all, I just installed the cruise control retrofit on my C4S : cruise control set to "with cruise control" in DME (with Durametric Pro). - I connected pin 1 cruise control to grey connector instrument cluster pin 17 - I connected pin 2 cruise control to fuse B7 - I connected pin 3 cruise control to grey connector instrument cluster pin 4 - I connected pin 4 cruise control to grey connector instrument cluster pin 1 However, when I read actual values, it says "cruise control readiness = off", whether I press the cruise control button or not. No green light whatsoever. Can anyone help ?
  5. I have a similar problem, I connected my Durametric and it says front park sensor number 3 is faulty. So, question is : which one is number 3 ?
  6. I had to remove my gearbox because I screwed up with changing the tranmissionoil (see another topic). I have read about that engine support bar, so I decided to fabricate one myself. Cost me 8 EUR of steel, some bolts & some grinding/drilling. I'm an IT guy, so this definitely means it's not too difficult to do it yourself ;)
  7. Thank you very much Loren, highly appreciated ! The only part I don't know is "9790191 Removing and installing the relay carrier E−box plenum panel "
  8. Loren, I need to replace mine as well, or at least clean up the connectors, can you send me a PM as well please ? Thank you !
  9. I just notice that this thread is in the wrong category, my apologies. Can a moderator move this to the correct 9PA category please ?
  10. HI all, I recently bought a 2005 Cayenne 3.2 V6. I know I will rarely open the rear glass hatch, but I noticed a weird thing : - I can open the rear glass by pressing & holding the key fob button for about 2 seconds, then the lid pops open - however, I cannot open the glass by pressing the switch below the rear wiper, nor by pressing the switch in the driver's door I read that the switches under the rear wiper often fail, that can easily be replaced, but what about the other (interior) switch ? I'm thinking maybe a fuse can be blown, but where exactly is that fuse located ?
  11. Thank you for the info, I'll ask him and let you know. I had a quick look around, and it looks like he removed the so called 'bearing screw'. In workshop manual it says "Caution : parts of the shifting mechanism will fall into the transmission if the bearing screw No 23 is unscrewed." So I'm afraid that will be a transmission removal to put the bits back ?!
  12. Btw : he told me that, when filling the gearbox, he felt a little 'notch' behind the (wrong) hex plug. It could be depressed, like falling down.
  13. Hi all, a friend of mine wanted to change his transmission oil on his 996 Carrera 3.4 (6 speed manual). He drained transmission fluid correctly, then filled the gearbox with Porsche transmission fluid, exactly 2.8 l. Then he tried his gears : goes into reverse without pressing in, has hardly any other gear. Then he checked and realised that he used the WRONG hex plug to fill the transmission fluid : instead of (from behind car) the left pretty low one, he used the right upper one (as well a 10 mm hex). Then, he undid undid the correct plug to check level, level was ok. How come gears don't work properly ? How can this be fixed ?
  14. I have (finally) received my copy : great book, clear pictures & explanations, very we'll worth the money & the waiting :) ! But : Internet links in the project title ("more info") do not work :( Next the list is the Bentley manual :p
  15. In Belgium you can get many Porsche OEM parts from Carnewal.com Thank you Loren ; Carnewal didn't have it at that time, but managed to get oil from teile.com (in Poland), the exact Porsche OEM stuff, but cheaper than from Porsche :)
  16. Any idea about the part numbers for the OEM spacers & bolts ? I'd like to install 5mm OEM spacers (front) & 17 mmm OEM spacers (rear) on my 996 MK1 (with MK1 GT3 wheels).
  17. I've ordered mine through Amazon.de (since closest to Belgium), shipping between 26/03 & 02/04 :(
  18. As Loren specified in another topic : if you don't feel the difference between WITH or WITHOUT a MAF (above 4000 rpm), then it's failing. In my experience, a failing MAF will cause hesitation above 4000 rpm.
  19. As Loren says : if you remove the MAF and there is no difference, then most likely the MAF isn't working at all. I had a similar issue, followed the forum members' advise : MAF still looked brand new, cleaned it, removed it to test (made no difference), replaced it and all is as it should now : no hesitation, no hiccup, no flat spots, just perfect ! My guess (as from what I have learned here) : MAF !
