PCCB Brakes

Recommended Posts

Have a 2005 996 Turbo S with PCCB brakes and use the car at the track.

1. I am getting ready to replace the brake pads and can't seem to get the correct part numbers from the Porsche technical information. Some of the 996 numbers seem to be superceeded by 997 numbers. Any help would be most appreciated.

2. Also I am being told to replace the damping plates, 20 of them. Is this something that you would recommend?

3. Are there any aftermarket pads for this application that you know of, e.g. PAGID etc. The pads on the car are black and have a PAGID stamp of P40-2 on them but that compound seems to be built for Porsche only.

I know that going to a steel configuration is a possibility and I am evaluating it for the future.

I suspect your car is "in between". Your car was built during the time they were changing over from PCCB ver1 to PCCB ver 2.

You need to ask your dealer to give you a copy of TSB 3620 that describes which cars get which pads/hardware. I think the TSB is fairly new and we don't have it yet here.

IMHO if you have version 1 then you are likely better off to convert to steel. But if you have version 2 then I would stick with them as they are much improved.
