Why is the radio reception so bad in this vehicle? Is there a way to fix this? Can I replace the antennae or add a booster to it? On any other vehicle I've driven I can get something other than static on just about every station on the dial, on my overpriced VW I get a handful.

There are 2 antenna's connected to the rear of the radio, I would check to make sure they are both on.

The antenna are inside of the rear spoiler which can be accessed by opening the rear GLASS and you will be able to access the screws which holds the top part from the bottom.

Check for water damage or obvious mechanical electrical issues

I own a 2004 S and the radio ( PCM 2, CD, not DVD nav) and reception are excellent. Once you sort out your issues you'll be pleased with the radio.

The right hand side does the FM reception the centre (black) connector is the aerial lead in.

You may find that the co~ax cable has broken at the tailgate hinge (not usually visible as internally snapped).

You can get a repair cable which is basically a metre of cable with a "fakra" connector on 1 end, I use a company called co~star t: +44 (0)1423 340066

Cost about £5

I have a 2008 Cayenne GTS and i just started noticing that my FM radio gets mostly all static only when i engage the rear defroster. It just started out of the blue today. Any ideas?

 

Thanks

      My front wheel was making a rattling noise for about the last week, and this morning as I drove out of my driveway and turned the wheel, I could hear a loud popping noise coming from my wheel whenever I turned. My best guess is that I drove over a pothole and the control arm / bushing moved out of place. Would this be covered under the OE warranty? Or should I take it to a mechanic?

      Hi there, my Cayenne is telling me my driver's side door is open when it is not. This is causing the dome light to stay on. Not sure what the issue is and if can be fixed easily. Any info given is greatly appreciated, thanks!

      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.

      Hello, I have 2004 cayenne s that I’ve been tracing down leaks in. I noticed that on the air intake tube near the air filter, there is a round metal clip that attaches two separate tubes together. Not the hose clamp style, but a spring clip that just pops on. I can’t find any info on buying these anywhere. Does anyone know the part number for these? Thanks.
