Porsche cayenne gearbox

Dear Sir, I have a Porsche Cayenne 2004. Lately, there is an abnormal noise coming the under carriage and definitely from those mounting. The noise is obvious after the car runs hot after 5-10 minutes. It can be hear clearly at about 40 mph when releasing the fuel pedal slightly, sounds like coming from the gear assembly from differential or transfer case. I requested the mechanic to confirm all the hub bearings, they are all ok. Neither it's from the tyres sound. The sound is obvious when the vehicle loaded and sound varies with vehicle load. Any advice please. Tks. Regards, Yeo K kchyeo@yahoo.com

A noise from a diff are , normally a high frequency harmonic sound while driving is from diff pinion bearings
if you decelerate and you get a noise normally as a low grumble ( low drumm noise )to a frequency noise is again the diff pinion bearings
you can distinguish the noise from power on to deceleration
the noise can be most noticeable with a slight load ( 2 people travelling at a steady speed say 60- 80 klm/hr) as a steady but harmonic pitch variation
the noise varies as the load is transferred from the bearing immediately behind the pinion gear to the bearing immediately behind the drive flange or in your case driven gear from the gear box
it is caused by a slight movement of the pinion which varies the correct mesh with the crown wheel , resulting in the whining sound
sorry but noise sounds are very hard to describe

SOURCE: fule door on my 2004 Porsche Cayenne S won't open with release

It's likely the fuse. The fuse diagram is in your owners manual. The fuse box is on the side of the dash when you open your driver's door. That should solve your issue.

How to remove "service now" on my porsche cayenne


You will need a code reader that connects to the cars OBDII system port. With the reader you can read the codes that are causing the light to come on (fix the problems) and clear the codes. The light will go out. I would caution that if you are seeing the "Service NOW" light that you should stop driving the car immediately and have it looked at. There is another message that says "Drive to service location" which is less severe.

I think that mechanic is stealing your money

The noise surely comes from some engine mount , or exhaust system

I think either you may have to flush the radiator or replace the thermostat. Really would not hurt to do both.
