Yes, this was my solution - the hard part was the fill plug.
See my post Sept 18th 2015
Problem solved. The 2011 has a fill port on the side (drivers) of the Transmission with a Torx 55 plug. Unfortunately the fill plug is very tight and with little room for a socket or fingers. The rest of the process is as described in the DIY article for the earlier model. A garden sprayer with a pipe bent into a hook was used to fill. The fill plug should be inserted before the engine runs to heat the ATF to 40 degrees . My car has a 36mm stand pipe in the drain plug; I note the parts diagram shows two lengths.. The ATF was dirty and the four magnets had some filings. I am glad I service
The DIY is excellent but the 2011 Cayenne has eliminated the 17mm fill plug on the pan. The drain plug has the overflow tube but I have not figured out the best way to fill while the engine is running.
I am at 85,000 miles and do not want to wait to the 160k maintenance schedule. The Asin transmission in the 2011 Cayenne has a screw in fill plug. I assume one of the Mitivac adapters fits (the Toyota one MVA581)? How much oil does one pump in or does one just measure the dirty oil? I assume the engine is at idle and the oil in the pan is at 40 deg centigrade while filling. Mike
