Go to http://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=battery+in+touraeg&view=detail&mid=06ABAF74843B74EDDC2106ABAF74843B74EDDC21&first=0&FORM=NVPFVR

It is for a Touraeg, but remember that is a cheap version of the Cayenne, so the process is the same!
The author of that video did a great job - don't listen to the silly text or picture ones that leave out KEY steps. Also get the right wrenches and you will need a TORX set for the battery vent cover screw - sorry I did not write down the size you need - that missing step made me run all over looking for one since I had misplaced my set!

First, The Porsche Cayenne can have two batteries. The primary is located under the driver seat and the secondary is under the rear trunk/subwoofer. The battery that usually goes bad is the primary. Most auto stores will NOT change this battery for you because of location (Autozone, Pepboys, Advance, O'rielly, Napa). Its very easy to do but you will need a triple square 10mm bit (autozone or napa carries them)
Remove front plastic trim piece by pulling forward
Using triple square bit unbolt the front two bolts
Tilt seat back (helps to move the seat forward once bolts are removed)
Remove plastic battery protector
Remove/replace new battery
Make sure to plug the vent line back into battery

Look for the battery, you will need common tools. you can get the battery at any automotive part store. just be sure to take the bad battery with you for a discount on core charges. to change the battery is simple. the automotive part store may do it for you free. if not show you how and where it is. they also have tools you can use, sometimes. it depends on the part store.

My 2004 Porsche Cayenne Turbo blows cold air only on passenger side. Driver side works


I'm not familiar with this model so I'll go by the usual culprits. My guess is that the air duct to the passenger side has had its operating mechanism come off. This will entail removing the under dash kick trim and a certain amount of gymnastics to lie in the footwell while someone operates the heater controls, You should be able to see(with a flashlight) the control cables etc moving. It may be just a matter of clipping a cable or cable end back onto the flaps. If you turn the blower on you may find a part of the trunking displaced, by the rush of air into the dash and not down the vents.

Can i change my engine from porsche cayenne s model 2004 to turbo engine


Anything is possible. Whether it is legal or not, depends on where you live. However, just the fact that you would ask a question like that, makes me seriously doubtfull that you should attempt any such undertaking yourself.

If your Porsche is not fast enough for you...trade it in on a Veyron.

What is the good battery brand for porsche cayenne turbo


Interstate makes a good replacement battery. Be aware that the Cayenne turbo uses a water cooled alternator that fails and appears good, but drains the battery over a night or two. This brilliant design also takes out the waterpump when the alternator bearings disintegrate and spit metal bits into the coolant that ruins the waterpump seal. It took me two waterpumps and a new battery to learn this little gem.
