Had an interesting issue with our 05 Cayenne Turbo today - As I was leaving my driveway I heard a loud popping sound in the drivers side wheel well. As I pulled ahead I heard this few more times. As I pulled over the the car popped loudly one more time and made a hissing sounds for 2 mins or so. Now the car's front end is lower than the rear and some red suspension warning light are on! Sounds Expensive!

What happened?!?

Thanks in advance

Sounds like one of the airbags for the front shocks blew out or an air line going to the front shocks. Is it lower on the front left or front right?

They are both the same - Both Bags? Has red Air Suspension warning.

Looks like something I should be happy didn't happen whilst traveling at a high rate of speed.

Nope 4 times what I paid exact same problem

Ok- Thanks! but.. Seriously he says the kit to fix with new parts is $3600 $400 in labor. So they are trying to screw me?

The MSRP for a complete air strut is $1017.

You can get them for $731 at www.porscheoemparts.com

The air coil spring component which you probably would only need is MSRP $595.

You can get them for $368 at www.porscheoemparts.com

OK my other airbag blew. Initially they said Replace, when I challenged them they told me PAG instructions are to replace both struts with matching part numbers, est $3800. I said no.

They are now rebuilding the strut using the $368 part but labor is about 500, plus parts and tax this time it will be over $1000

better than 3800 I suppose

Was the failure as spectacular / catastrophic as your previous strut, or was this one a fizzer?

Did the other strut also deflate or were you tilted?
