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 !

Well, almost a week and no answer >.>

 

I was able to get some more work done and figured some stuff out.

 

1st: Side view mirror shells have 2 clips behind the mirror and another one towards the interior, that last one seems to have been broken on both mirror and made them rattling.

2nd: Nothing yet

3rd: Need to get an aftermarker radio, any advise ?

4th: Need to get some more details but it's between the flap actuators or the A/C crontrolers, I have an extra controller so I can do some more testing but I really need to get Durametric to make it easier and faster.

1. About the mirrors, if you can get a small dab of silicone adhesive on the inside of it, that should hold it nicely and won't harden up too hard to where it'll break if it needs to be taken apart again.

2. It's possible that the motor that controls the up/down movement has gone, but sounds more like a blown fuse somewhere that is preventing it from getting power.

3. There's plenty of good aftermarket stereos : Kenwood Excelon DNX893S, Pioneer 5201 NEX, Alpine W960. All of those have GPS Navigation as well.

4. Sounds to me like the ducts have been removed or broken behind the dash, by the center console area, it could be something simple that the previous owner forgot to do maybe when they were changing the cabin air filter.

And there is a recall on the transfer case computer/motor. Give the dealership a call and see if yours qualifies as one of the cars with the recall. Mine doesn't unfortunately so I have to fix it myself.

Good luck!

      I had an oil change on the P!G (M1 synthetic) before a trip and that's when the trouble started...
       
      The driver side wheel well makes a gentle creaking sound at idle RPM, which seems to disappear at higher RPM.  It sounded like a small frog quietly chirping in the wheel well and I was worried it was a turbo.  When we popped the hood, there was sound of a vacuum near the intake. The PCV to crankase hose (part #5) collapses while the engine is running and the oil fill port sucks strong vacuum if the fill cap is removed.
       
      My local independent mechanic (I'm some distance from a Porsche specialist) found that hose 14 and 15 are both cracked and identified their failure as causing the sound.  Cause of failure is presumed age/heat. Since replacing those two components are $370-400 in hoses, is there something else we should be looking into as a cause of these pipe failures?  Searching the forums I came upon a discussion that makes me think maybe we should be looking at the PCV valve, air oil separator membrane, and the diverter valves?  I'm wrench-familiar with NA cars and new to turbos so I'd appreciate your input.  Is the restricted airflow or vacuum interruption causing turbo noise?  Has anyone else seen this and what else should I be checking?
       
      We do see the boost gauge work normally or at least what it has historically (under acceleration it hits 0.8 bar/pegged and then holds near 0.6-0.7) before these issues started.  The rest of the car seems to work well, aside from the a sticky secondary air injection check valve on the passenger side.
       

      Hoses 94810721753 and 94810721651 are cracked

      I have a 2009 957 3.6l v6 Cayenne. The battery was dead a few days ago so I replaced it. It now starts up just as it should but when run a diagnostic it says the alternator voltage is high reading 14.72. I’m assuming I need to replace the alternator to remedy this. I can’t find any information about replacing the alternator. Has anyone attempted this? It looks like it might be straightforward  but my concern is whether or not the intake manifold has to be removed in order to get clear access. If anyone has any insight on this I would greatly appreciate it.

      Does anyone have a wiring diagram for the seat on a 2008/957 Cayenne which they can let me have?

      I’m trying to chase a fault where the passenger seat will motor up and down and the backrest will adjust forward and aft, but there is no response from the controls to move the seat unit forwards and backwards, or the four-way lumber support control.
       
      Thanks in anticipation...

      And now, in exchange for you having to read this, I leave you with a picture of what I found while replacing a bulb yesterday.

      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?
