    2005 Cayenne S
  1. I had similar problem...every now and then the blower would work...I didn't know if it was the A/C and heater blower motor or if it was the blower motor regulator. To test your blower motor...you'll have to remove it to visually inspect it and turn it to see if it moves smoothly, if it doesn't move smoothly...then the bearings are likely shot...if there is black residue, then the motor is probably gone or is going. The regulator makes is so you can have different temperatures in each zone...my problem was i didn't get any air regardless of heat or A/C...therefore, I chose to replace
  2. I have the same thump and took it to a local porsche garage (not the dealer), after spending $155 to diagnose they gave me a copy of the TSB dated April 18, 2006 that is titled "Noise- from the front end of the transfer case"...just goes to show information is valuable. The TSB recommends the replacement of the transfer case control unit and the garaage quoted me $750 to install. Suncoast parts has a repair package named "PTM Transfer Gear Servo Motor Update" for $1072.82 , however, it comes with a new gear servo motor. I contacted the parts department and they say that this is a package deal
  3. Hey srfrdrew, I am going to be tackling this project on my '05 Cayenne S...how long did it take you complete this job and now that it's freshly behind you, any advice/suggestions you can give me. Thanks.
  4. I followed the instructions to this tutorial. It took me a total of about 6 hours...I didn't use all of the tools suggested and I do have one main suggestion...After I cut out / broke out the existing plastic coolant pipes I didn't use any chisel or screwdriver to get the pressure rings out. Instead I used a 12" pry bar to wedge them out...Using the pry bar it took me less than a minute to get each pressure ring out. good luck.
  5. Thanks for the help. I Discovered loose connection on cylinder 5 fuel injector. Easy enough fix. Thanks again.
  6. I found the part number in another post...it was for a 2004 Cayenne S...the plugs are Bosche FGR6KQE.At the time I am posting this they are $8.24 per plug from Amazon.com.
  7. I am located in California, USA and have a '05 Cayenne S. Can anyone please provide me the recommended spark plug replacement part number? Thanks in advance.
  8. I was about to purchase the Durametric Diagnostic Cable. However, I did a Google search for "Porsche diagnostic cable" and I discovered a generic cable and software at this site http://www.obd16.com/wholesale/new-porsche-piwis-cable-2256.html. Does anyone have knowledge about how the generic cable works in comparison to the Durametric Brand...does is accomplish the same functions?
  9. I have a '05 Cayenne S. I changed my coolant pipes on 10/20/13 (followed the instructions in on this site) and I changed the spark plugs around Oct 2012 (less than 10k miles ago) using NGK BKR6EGP G-Power Spark Plugs.. I'm receiving the following multiple errors: P0205 - Fuel Injector, Cylinder 5 - Open Circuit P0300- Misfire Detection Checksum Error P0304- Misfire Detection, Cylinder 4 (Bank 1) P0305- Misfire Detection, Cylinder 5 (Bank 2) P0406- Misfire Detection, Cylinder 6 (Bank 2) P0308- Misfire Detection, Cylinder 8 (Bank 2) My First thought was to switch out the spark plugs agai
