My bad. I meant 'cannot'. If the correct drain plug is in place the pan does not need to be replaced. How many times this is the case I do not know.
That filter is part of the pan cover. The cover and filter are replaced if the oil plug cannot be re-used, which seems to be the case in some early PDK cars.
I think you should seek another dealer opinion. :)
Just got it confirmed by a Porsche Master Mechanic - same oil.
Is the gear oil the same for a PDK with an LSD? Or does it require a different oil or an additive like other transaxles with an LSD?
You do not need to change brakes for the reasons you point to. You would only see the benefits of GT3 brakes on heavy track usage if you track your car, and never on the street, and certainly not in the usual panic braking.
Slicky Rick: In recirc mode there is no overt air input. You are breathing closed cabin air. Of course, there's always some air creeping in from the outside, but less than when recirc is off. The pollen filter, stops large particulates but not gases or smells. Your S-Merc cabin fllter does not renew the air, just cleans it from particulates. Are you sure that that filter is not used by external air. The fact that the filter is inside the cabin does not mean that it is strictly used in recirc mode.
I doubt that the polen filter is in the loop when recirculation is engaged. What's the point of constantly filtering, internal (supposedly clean) air anyway? In addition, recirculation should be used as least as possible.
ADias replied to MWS's topic in 997-2 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S, Carrera GTS, 911 Speedster)^ more... On a 4wd 997 mixing different tires front and rear may actually damage the AWD system. Just crazy!
ADias replied to MWS's topic in 997-2 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S, Carrera GTS, 911 Speedster)MWS: There is no tire rotation in 997s. You can exchange tires left to right on the same axle if the tires are not unidirectional but what's the point? Second. Never, never mix different tire styles between front and rear. Both axles must have the same exact tire compound/brand/type including N-rating if a N-rated tire. Your adding Hankook to the rear while maintaining PS2 at the front is total folly. The tire shop you used is utterly incompetent. That is why your handling was screwed up.
You got that right. The Cayenne is a great ute but it is worlds apart from an 11. I suppose those who seek straight-line thrills cannot tell the difference.
ADias replied to Joao's topic in 997-2 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S, Carrera GTS, 911 Speedster)Probably not. I suggest you ask your dealer to take a look.
