The navigation dvd drive in my 2006 997.1 C4S has failed. It will not eject the dvd. I want to remove the drive unit in order to attempt a repair or, if necessary, replace it. My problem is that I have been unable to remove the plastic piece that covers the dvd drive and audio amp. Porsche said "it just drops down." I have pushed, pulled, and cursed at the cover but it will not budge. I hesitate to use a tool as a lever for fear of breaking the cover.
Do I need to eat more Wheaties so I can pull harder on the cover, or am I just missing a simple solution?
I have never used a forum before and I don't know how it works exactly so I am hoping I don't break any rules here
I just bought a 2009 Carrera but the navigation is not installed.
I want to install the Navigation but I am not really sure what parts I'm missing. I took it to a Porsche dealership and they told me that I need to buy the entire PCM for 5K. I read somewhere that you only need to buy the Nav module where the disk is and the antenna but I don't know if this is true or not.
Thanks in advance
Hi i have 2009 c4s with pcm 3.0 no nav , i have been experiencing constant issues with the bluetooth , brought it in and out of good faith and 500$ porsche replaced the unit 2 times, after there head field tech came to the dealership the conclusion was made that all pcm 3,0 have a 48 second delay for calls to patch through or they don't come through at all . So basically if your on a call , walk to your car unlock and start it phone connects but there is no sound resulting to the other party hanging up , after that you try calling back and same issue until the third time if your lucky . So after 8 times at the dealership in 6 moths time not understanding the issue , the answer was clear all cars with nav don't have this issue and as the field tech told me 99% of cars sold have nav so we never really had this issue and there is nothing we can do but change the whole thing for 7000 + install and other little parts . obviously i am not going to spend 7000$ for it to work properly . So next is that porsche north america contacts me telling me that this is normal functionality of the pcm and that there is nothing more we can do and for all this inconvenience we will send you a 2000$ check . So i told her but you realize there is a issue that has slipped through Porsche hands and we have just discovered it, a flaw that nobody realized and that it just slipped through. I then told her but you have a fix and its replace my pcm with nav and everything will work fine , her answer was no and thats final ,so i asked where i sit indicated in the manual that cars without nav function this way ? she had nothing to say . Minutes later sending me by email a confidential letter that i need to sign and return basically releasing them from any further actions and for me to accept this as proper functionality of the pcm as Porsche specs .
what to i do ? sue them ? take the money ? I'm sure if i contact stuttgart and ask if this is normal functionality the answer will be no.

Hello every one, I´m new here, so please be patient with me :)
I have a 911 966 carrera 4 with a PCM 1 16 bits.
Yesterday I was trying to put the phone card on it and it never recognive the sim.
- Since my car is imported from germany will it accept the Poruguese sim card or it is bloked?
Since I never cound put it to work at a sertanly point on the phone it apears something like emergency call that I click to start.
After that and no call was done but the equipment keeps emmitinhg the emergency cal. I pressed the buton that we use to zoom the maps and make choices (as a enter) for several seconds and looks like the emergency desapear, but from that moment the radion nevver switch off as usualy when I remove the keys from the starter.
- what to do to put it back to normal?
I see I have a german manual for he pcm since i do not understand german is that a way that anyone could help me by pointing me where to get it in english or even spenish?
thanks to you all
