  1. Hi all My 2002 996 coupe has a squeaking passenger seat when I push/pull the top or back part of the seat, including driving over bumps. I have half powered seats,,, the top/back is powered while the lower seat assembly is manual. The squeak happens when the top/back is in any position including up so you can access the back seats. Something must be loose, but my question is if there are any DIY instructions that I could focus on instead of trying to tighten every bolt and hex screw that I can access. It's pretty compact down there... Appreciated... Thank you in advance
  2. I've been told that since my car is all wheel drive, it's not good for the car to be on a lift and run at the needed speed. And given the transaxle would not have any load, I question if it would make the noise at all. Does that make sense? Does anyone else think the noise in above audio recordings are normal for a Panamera ? Thank you John
  3. Hi The noise doesn't happen at any certain RPM range, it's a speed range. I can listen to the noise, during the speed range, and downshift from 7th to 6th to 5th and still hear the noise. I can only stop the noise by moving outside of the two speed ranges or changing gears from Drive to Neutral. Thank you for your replies. John
  4. Hi I'm finally able to upload the audio of this on going issue with my Panamera. When I was recording this I was changing gears from Drive into Manual and back into Drive (see previous post that explains the noise stops when doing so). The clicks throughout the two audio clips are me changing gears. Just for clarity, I'll tell you where the noise is the loudest. I've had to split my audio clip into two separate files since there's a 2 MB limit. File 1 = The very first 10 seconds and at 1:08 File 2 = At 0:06, 0:21, 0:40, 0:55, 1:01 and 1:09 I've driven 2011 and 2012 Panameras
  5. The tires were new when I bought the tires and the dealer checked them for cupping which they were not. They rebalanced them anyway. Last night I went for a drive and when I heard the noise (53-63mph range), I downshifted to 6th, then to 5th and I still heard the noise in both gears. Then I got back up to speed and when I heard the noise, I put the car in neutral and the noise went away. I put it back in gear before I slowed down too much and the noise returned. When I put it into neutral, I kept the pedal down with the engine revving a bit and the noise still went away. Does thi
  6. RFM,,, I bought the car Oct 2013 Certified pre-owned,,, I'm not sure if the windshield has been replaced, I will ask the dealership if they have records. I taped off the outside of all four sides of the windshield and the sound persisted. wvicary,,, I will try to get an audio sample and upload it here. To my untrained ears, the sound is more mechanical (fast spinning) than wind made. The Porsche guys say it's wind made though. I appreciate both of your replies Thank you John
  7. Hi I have a 2011 Panamera 4 (CPO) that has a loud, high pitched whine or whistle at certain speeds (between 55-63 and again between 83-90). The whine/whistle is coming from behind the front center console area and is louder in the 83-90 speed range. The noise doesn't go away after taking my foot off the gas, it might change in pitch a little but it doesn't go away. My wife drives clients around for business and the whine/whistle has been mentioned by her clients during the drive. We can't keep driving this expensive car with this distracting whine/whistle. To us the noise is like fing
  8. Ok, after being told different things from the dealer, the problem turns out to be a bad driver side window control switch. Honestly, I was told by a sales guy that Porsche restricted the one touch operation for closing windows for a few years (970s 2011-2013) for safety reasons. Even the guys that manage the service area said there wasn't a way to make it work. They could only try and 'calibrate' it. Which means they hold the window trigger up for 10-15 seconds. None of this made sense so I'm glad I pushed back.
  9. Hi I have a 2011 Panamera 4 and my windows do not auto close using the one-touch operation when sitting in the two front seats. I have to hold the window trigger the entire time while the one-touch works great to open the windows. The two rear window controls auto close using the one-touch, just not from the two front seat window controls. I'd like to determine if there's a problem with the front window control switch or not. I was told by my dealer that the one-touch close operation is restricted to only work when the window is more than 50% closed because of safety concerns. Unfor
