2012 Cayenne S oil change steps/photos

Recommended Posts

Greetings. I have been trying to find a nice diy thread with photos showing the appropriate panels to remove, the respective locations to drain, etc. I have looked and found something relatively old with the earlier generation models, but don't see anything else. I have happily used the ones in the past with regard to the 911 as posted on Rennlist and elsewhere. Has someone here put together a nice photo step by step, just so I can see it correctly the first time?

Many thanks.

I two need to do an oil change on my 2011 Cayenne S. How many quarts of oil? are their two drain plugs like older Cayenne S models? and what is the size socket or wrecnch needed to remove oil filter housing? Anyone who has done this and have pics would be great.

Don't have an Owners Manual? You can download it here.

It is 9.5 quarts (or 9 liters) for the V8 engines.

One drain at the bottom most part of the oil pan. I don't recall the wrench size but the drain plug is M18.

The is a nut on the top of the oil filter housing (24 mm as I recall) or you can use an oil filter wrench. I believe it is the same oil filter wrench as used on other Porsche models.

Nothing tricky or complicated here - drain, replace filter (and o-ring), new sealing ring on drain plug, add oil -- done.

Oil Filter - 948-107-222-00 US MSRP $22.56

O-ring for filer assembly - 948-107-322-00 US MSRP $7.58

Sealing ring for drain plug - 900-123-106-30 US MSRP $1.39

Just wanted to let everyone know that the nut on the oil filter cannister is 36mm and you need a shallow socket to remove it because there is not alot of wiggle room for standard size socket. You can purchase the specially made socket which most factory porsche technicians go to purchase there tools. The place is AST or Assemaucher Specialty Tools. The socket part number is( AST 2136).
