  1. You also need to keep checking the overflow bottle and keep topping it off if it's low of course.
  2. I did solve my problem with the aftermarket cardon shaft bearing kit in the end. It's too expensive just to start replacing random parts on a Porsche so I would make sure you know for sure what it is before doing so. Well, at least if you live on a normal budget anyways.
  3. No problem but hahnmgh63 was right. It lasted for a few weeks the then the rubber broke apart. Thump thump thump under load and I'm sure you know what I had to do next. I ended up doing that DIY aftermarket kit $425 and that fixed everything but that sound sure was annoying. What a piece of crap part on Porsche's part though. I just repacked the bearing with grease as the directions stated. The bearing was fine itself. The Guibo disk was the hardest due to a little rust on the bushings.
  4. Cardon Shaft Bearing... spray it with WD40 white lithium grease and see what happens.
  5. So, the wife came home and said " you have got to do something about that noise". We test drove it again and I crawled around inside the cab of the pig while she drove. I had my ear on the console handle and it seem to resonate quit loud from that area and at the end towards the back seat area. When I got home, I bumped the air system to max height and went under with my WD40 white lithium grease, a mirror, a head light and started spraying the crap out of the Cardon Shaft Bearing, on both sides. The straw fit right down into the lip of the bearing along the shaft. The rubber around the shaft is all intact and no problems with that. Went for a test ride and sure enough! SOUND IS GONE! 60,000 miles--what a sh-ty design. I will spray as needed now until I want to spend the cash on the aftermarket DIY kit. Hope this helps somone else and thanks for all the ideas.
  6. I have had the bearing inspected and they report everything thing is fine. Question though! Is the rubber around the the bearing shaft the area that fails and then people just replace the bearing because of the thumping sound? I don't hear of many people replacing it becasue of the bearing sound though or them saying that replacing the bearing fixed the sound that we are describing.
  7. I have not yet! i do know it happens after 10-20 mins. of warming up. Greater the sound when the temp. is warmer outside.
  8. What ended up being the result of the replacement. I might have the same problem, just need to know if I should order the parts.
