My 2004 Carrera coupe has developed a leak. It started after I flushed my cooling system. Rather sure it is around the AOS/associated lines. I've read various opinions about the difficulty of removing the AOS. But what I am interested in doing is just replacing those lines. Any experience or opinions on doing this? Specifically, is it even possible? Especially if this can be done without removing the intake manifold? Also I am only finding the upper oil separator coolant hose. What about the second one?
I recently purchased an 04 Cayenne Turbo and two weeks ago had an oil change at my local Porsche Dealer. The service adviser informed me that the vehicle inspection detected a oil leak located in the oil separator located in Bank 2 (5-8). It appears that the oil separator is integral with the camshaft cover and the leak causes excessive oil consumption. I decided to do the repair myself and purchased the camshaft cover at a considerable discount than the dealer quoted. It appears to be a straight forward part replacement. However, before starting the project I would like to make sure that fully understand the part replacement process. Has anyone had experience replacing the cover? Are there any factory repair instruction available, special tools or precaution that need to be observed?
