If you look at the pic of the reservoir, you will notice there is no "cap" on the silver tube with the green tag attached. It looks like there is supposed to be some kind of cap. I have no idea if it was ever there (I just bought the car a month ago) to begin with. I assume it is some sort of a vent line for the reservoir, (perhaps with a special vented plug of some kind?) but the manual I have is vague, and doesn't mention anything relating to this piece. And, I don't know anyone else with another car I can just go look at. Any insights would be appreciated.
Have you tried putting some heat on it? Sometimes done correctly and with caution, that can help to loosen things.
Thanks for the help. I guess in the future, a non-public PM would be in order so no one runs afoul of any rules, and avoids The Eye of Sauron. :) That being said, does Porsche actually sell a service manual? I have not been able to find one online through any official source, but I have to confess, I've not actually gotten around to asking the dealership yet. They (Porsche) must realize that there are those of out there who actually enjoy working on and understanding how our machinery functions!
Hi Folks- I'm new to this forum, and the Porsche world as well. I've been looking for a service manual that covers the Turbo engine in my 2004 911 (996TT). I bought the one Bentley has, but there is nothing about the TT in it. It seems as though it's geared exclusively toward the normally aspirated variety, and it does not appear as though they have one that deals with turbo engines(if they do, I didn't see it listed on their website). Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
