Hello,

2002 996 TT. I was wondering if anyone has instructions on how to install the spring + plastic bracket for the gas thank door. I just ordered the parts today so it might be self explanatory but I didn't see where the spring would go for example. Any digrams or pictures would be greatly apprecaited.

Thanks in advance.

You need to insert two thin bladed screw drivers, one on each end of the filler flap hinge to unlock the two small tabs that hold it in place. If you have access to the Bentley 996 book, there are photos and diagrams starting on page 50-2.

When are you going to post some photos of that bad boy?

Cool, thanks as usual JFP! I actually sold my Bentley manual to a friend because it technically doesn't cover the Turbo model, but you have a good point there -- a lot of things are similar on the body so maybe I should pick one up again.

I will post some pictures this weekend -- after I get the gas flap fixed. Car is beautiful, and it drives even better than I imagined. Can't really compare it to the 4S I had before. The interior looks pretty much the same but as soon as you start the engine it all stops there. Sounds different, feels different, clutch is totally different. The power at 4K+ RPMs is just mind blowing. The torque is unbelievable. Driving it is a complete rush.

Glad to hear the purchase met your expectations, the turbo cars are a blast to drive.

The gas flap spring is like a cartridge inside the flap door hinge, so you need to pop off the door by releasing the tabs and slide it out. Borrow the book back for about 5 min. and you will see how it comes apart.

      Hello everyone,
                Does anyone have or know where I may have the bolt torque specs for a 2008 Cayenne Turbo? I need pretty much the specifications for all the bolts and nuts that would be included in a block replacement. I'm getting the back rebuilt by 928 Motorsports and reinstalling with an experienced friend. However, it's nearly impossible to find the specs for these motors. Additionally, if there's a place where I could find a complete 957 workshop manual, could someone please advise? Thank you.

      Just wanted to say thanks to the community helped answer some questions about the scoring on my 2008 CTT 957. My next question is, does anyone know where I may purchase a complete engine seals and gasket kit for a 2008 Cayenne Turbo? Or if these are unavailable as a whole unit, had anyone rebuilt their engine from the cylinder scoring or something similar and have a parts list of required seals and gaskets which need changed? Additionally, are there any other suggestions on parts that I should change some I'll have the motor apart? Anything would help at this point. Thanks

      Transitioning from previous thread to new one--  Replaced the water pump and performed the 60,000 mile service in my 04 Turbo Cab.  Car runs great except now I am getting overboost to 1.0-1.3 bar.  I don't hold it there to be sure.  That said, I realize it is likely a vacuum issue but the only lines I touched during the repair are the one from the Y-Pipe to the switch and the one from the switch to the plastic line that goes to the driver side of the engine.  Flashlight and inspection mirror show the 3rd line on the underside of the switch to be connected.  Any thoughts on where else to look?
       
      Thanks

      Hi - on my 06 CTTS, over the last few months I noticed  occasionally awful smell inside the cabin while driving. My research so far indicates that it is emitted from vents when AC system is on. Believe it smells like sth. burned, and is not present when I switch AC system completely off. Did anybody experience this before on a 955 Cayenne, Turbo or Turbo S ? Thanks in advance. 
      PS.: side note. It may be coincidence or completely unrelated, but as far as electrical problems I am noticing for about comparable amount of time that the  horn is dead (silence when pressing the steering wheel center...).

      Hi mates,
       
      I purchased last week a 996 Turbo (2002). Unfortunetly there was neither an operation manual of the car nor of the PCM System. Is there a chance to get one (as orig. book or PDF file) in english or german?
