Here's a link to a video I have put together when my girlfriend and I replaced the pneumatic springs on our 2004 Cayenne S.

Audio sucks and the video is somewhat incomplete but I think it will help those who are worried about removing the trim (as I was) and getting to the springs themselves.

We replaced both the hatch and glass springs/struts since it made sense to do so while everything was opened.

Got the parts from Suncoast and saved enough to make it worthwhile to do this in the driveway versus allowing the dealer to do it.

The cutout in the bodywork for the springs is really small for my hands. There is no way I could have done this by myself.

In addition the hatch will need to be lifted slightly once you get one end of the new spring attached. If the door is not lifted you would have to compress the spring slightly and I can tell you that will not happen. These springs are under a huge amount of pressure and the coiled spring is quite strong.

It is my opinion that this is a two person job to make it as easy as possible.

Hope it's useful!!

Thanks for creating the video and sharing it with the rest of us. The job itself was already enough to occupy all of your (or girl friend's) hands. So, unless you were really enthusiastic about helping other Cayenne owners, it was probably too much trouble to video document while you were working. The hinge supports in my CTT were recently replaced by my dealer so I won't have to worry about them for a couple of years. It was not covered by CPO warranty but my local dealer covered it for me out of goodwill. But in two to three years, I am sure it will fail again (no pun intended). I hope I wll remember then about your video. Thanks again.
