Cabriolet side/mud flaps are actuated by this lead screw which is attached to the shaft of the drive motor.
If your tops gets out of synch as mine did when the bolt that holds a side arm casting to the hydraulic piston fell out, then it creates a cascading nightmare of fragile part failures.
First that spindly potentiometer arm with the lightening holes to save a hundredth of gram of plastic breaks off, now these.
This tiny molded soft plastic nut runs on what I measure as a M8 x 1.5 pitch lead screw, which is apparently less common than the M8 x 2 pitch lead screw used in 3D printers.
It is ridiculous to replace the entire side flap assembly because this soft plastic lead screw nut gets run to the end and stripped/cracked so it runs too slow and the computer times out.
Has anyone sourced this lead screw nut or a replacement M8 x 1.5 pitch lead screw nut with a triangular or round flange that could be cut down square to insert into the carrier that operates the flap?

Hey yall! I'm new here, long time lurker but now that I've come to a bunch of problems I cannot get resolve with the DIY or tutorial I was able to find on here or youtube I decided to open a post with my issues and see what you guys think! I have some (prolly) simple ones and some really weird ones. A little bit of context: I just bought my cayenne turbo (2004) 2 months ago from its 1st owner that neglected it for the last 3-5 years of ownership. I have done a lot of mechanical work on the car ( I can list everything if needed). These issues are mainly cosmetic and quality of life ones.
1st: The side view mirror shells. Are they suppose to be this flimsy ? the half shell does a plastic rattling noise when I close the door (mainly on the driver side)
2nd: Steering column adjustment. Now this one I read a lot about resetting the seat control by tilting it and stuff, done it, did not work. It did clear my memory settings for the seats but not reset the motor for the steering wheel. As you can see, it can go in and out, not up and down....
3rd: The PoS that is called the PCM Radio. I think the previous owner finger f*ck the hell out of the radio system because, well... It's not working great. Main issue it that the time keeps resetting and does not fallow the real clock, it just gets stuck and the date is now missing but used to be stuck in year 2000 (for a 2004 model) It's asking me to insert the GPS disk to get it to update I think now...
4th: The worst. Hopefully the video explains it....well, it's completely lost at where to throw the air...
I have another major one when I drive that it kick between gears (only some gears, only some times) mechanic told me it's the transfercase/module, interweb tells me it's the transmission valve body..., i'll make a video about that one later. Thank for the help in advance !

I have an 996 - 99mod manual 3,4L.
When i start up it seems like it misfires. It`s kind of a knocking sound. Sometimes it stops on idle.
When i push the throttle for a ouple of seconds, it smokes a lot and then the knocking goes away.
After that, I let it Idle - but it slowly rises from 800rpm to around 2000rpm, then it drops to 800rpm again and do the same thing over and over again,
Does anybody have a clue?
This is the fault codes i found:
P1601 - CAN timeout - instrument cluster
P0600 - CAN timeout Tiptronic
P0102 Hot film MAF sensor (erased and didn`t come back)
60 - Central locking limit pos
13 - Left door secured, but not locket
14 - Left door secured, but not locket
16 - Signal from airbag
1 - Doors secures and terminal 15 on
43 - passenger - side release stuck
44 - Driver-side release stuck
61 - Central locking limit position Unlock not reached
I need some help with this. I wanted to replace all 4 corners with EBC pads and rotors but what I found out is my car has 360mm rotors. There is a large selection of 350mm and 380mm rotors but the 360mm rotors are hard to come by in a aftermarket performance series brake rotor.
Does anyone have any experience with this and what products did they wind up purchasing.
Thank in advance for any suggestions
