Stuart, isn’t this the common problem with the fan? Customers, particularly of early cars, have reported that the fan intermittently stops working. When I first heard about the problem it sounded like a software bug but I have read that you can reach through the intake from the frunk and spin the fan manually kicking it back into life.
Edit – if the car is no longer under warranty you may have a case to argue that as its a common known fault it should be repaired at Porsche’s expense.
Mine hasn’t suffered from this or the other fault with the brake pedal pivot binding – fingers crossed!
Yes I think it is a common’ish fault…I mentioned to the service bloke about ‘spinning’ the fan to free it up and he said he had heard of people losing the end of their fingers so would advise against it…
In any case it is still within warranty so a 3 hour wait in the OPC and the pre-ordered fan was fitted to replaced the non-working unit at no cost, plus the car got a wash too 🙂
Lovely to have cold air again, especially in this fine weather we are having at present 😀
I’ve had both the ‘brake pedal’ thing and the ‘fan thing’ so here’s hoping that you dont get either after your warranty has ceased (unless it has already)…I will certainly be considering extending the warranty when it comes up in the next 3 months (weird as I never did on the 987 and probably won’t on the Cayenne either)
