Just as an aside, I was given a pen and asked to sign paperwork for the courtesy car etc on my recent visit to Porsche.
Whereas I have had to hire a car for 24 hours and am not sure if I have to walk to get it. My appointment is tomorrow.

Re: Transfer Box

Heard it again. Perhaps coming from front left. Might be a shaft or coupling. Only have heard it on right lock.

Re: Tyre Pressures in winter

As stated above the Fill Info screen gives you what is required as that takes the temp at the time of reading into account. If the pressure at 20 degrees one day is correct when the ambient is plus 15 it will also be correct the next day of there is a cold snap.

Re: Transfer Box

The noise in mine is like the branch of a tree has got stuck beneath the car and is dragging. Probably lasts for less than two seconds. With 50k miles it maybe connected to uneven pad/disc wear, possibly some scoring and a high spot. What do the discs look like? Whichever, they need changing. I hav...

Re: Transfer Box

Still no Courtesy Cars. They suggest I book a waiting appointment for investigation. Thinking about it whilst I see if I can produce the symptoms on demand. I found the knocking on mine seemed to be more pronounced once the car had been driven for a while if that helps. It was quite subtle though s...

Re: Transfer Box

Earlier this month I noticed a subtle knocking coming from the rear when accelerating gently in 2nd and 3rd gears. Knew what it was likely to be as my previo...

Re: Macan S Diesel - Brake & Disc Costs??

Needs doing by Christmas then. If you've done 50k it will be needing discs as well as pads so no harm going untill you hear metal to metal. Still some pad left at that stage as it will be the disc lip touching the pad back plate :shock: Belfast had the callipers out measuring the discs a year ago. ...
