Guys could someone please help...can't believe how difficult it is to get any info on my beautiful 957 cayenne!  So here's hoping right? As you can see in the photo, the right side rear light has got a few dead LEDs in the two top strips... Has anyone tried a repair or got any advice on this? Someone has gotta know about this! In the words of Sam Smith, I know am not the only one

Normally, if the light cannot be soldered or otherwise repaired, it is time for a new light.

Thanks for the reply but has anyone here had a similar problem and repaired it? And it seems light units for the 957 are pretty hard to come acrosa

Those were not stock?

If not, then you need to talk to their manufacturer or the company that sold them to you.

Hi Loren they are stock... Totally stock in the 957...

 

Interesting, as the parts diagram for that car in the NA market shows it having halogen bulbs.

The halogen bulbs on the diagram you refer to isn't the top two rows...if you look again, at the diagram for the 957 not 955 Cayenne, you'll clearly see the leds are housed in two rows along the top...

Mine is a 2008 3.6 Petrol 957 Cayenne... I think you're confusing 955 cayenne rear lights with the 957 cayenne rear lights. One of the updates from the 955 was both the front and rear lights. All 957 Cayennes (2007 - 2010) have as standard two strips of LEDs across the top of the rear light (see photo)

Porsche has updated that bulb carrier assembly and the updated part would depend on your original part number (for each side). They are about $60 US each.

Most Porsche Centres will post out parts.  I would try your local centre first.  Failing that, try Type911.co.uk or Design911.co.uk.

      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.

      I'm unable to connect to the engine module on my '09 Cayenne with my new Durametric cable.  I called tech support for an assist and was told that they are still working on coding to allow for connecting the 957 to the engine module.  The Durametric website  does list the MED9 for V6 as being available for reading/clearing codes.  Wondering if anyone else has found a way to get this to work.  I'm using version 6 software.
