Ok short little write up how I do my oil changes on 04 Cayenne S

I will leave out the normal oil change information like warm up engine, oil orings, torque and provide Cayenne specific information.

I use 8 qts Mobil 1 synthetic 0w-40

You need a 10mm socket and a 8mm Hex key

Porsche oil filter (filter comes with oring) and two Porsche oil drain plug washers

Porsche oil filter socket

It basically consists of removing two bottom panels, 2 end pieces, oil filter housing and two drain plugs.

Jacks not needed if you don't have a big head.

First remove first underride protection panel with 3 10mm bolts up front and 4 in back where the meet the middle panel, don't drop the panel yet. Then using a phillips screwdriver remove 5 philips screws on the each side where they meet the wheel well of the forward most underride protection panel, gently pull end pieces down. One more 10mm exposed now for forward underride panel where they meet the wheel well. Drop forward panel. Now get under the middle of the car and remove two more 10mm bolts for center underride protection panel. Pay attention how it clips into mechanism that hangs the rear edge of it.

Now using either Porsche oil filter socket or Hazet 2169 or rubber strap wrench remove plastic (fragile) oil filter housing, go slow and oil spurts out sometimes. Replace oring on housing and filter cartridge, there is a small gap in the oring groove that allows you to pry oring out with a small screwdriver without damaging the housing. Use torque wrench if you can't feel the oring seat, to replace canister.

Then there are two 8mm hex key drain plugs for the oil, both inline with the oil filter if you draw a straight line from front to back of the car, there is also a another drain plug on the passenger side, NOT that one, choose the one towards the driver side half of the car. Open oil filler cap, drain oil. REPLACE aluminum washers on drain plugs, replace drain plugs. If you measure your oil coming out ( I do ), it should be about 8 quarts. Use torque wrench if you can't feel the crush washers seat.

Add 8 quarts of oil through oil cap and check dipstick.

Your done, put underride protection panels back and take the $300 you just saved to a casino.

Thanks for the info. Would you (or anyone else) know if your detailed instructions apply to a 04 CTT?

Seems Hazet makes many different sizes of filter wrenches. What size did you use for your filter?

Thanks!

EDIT... Woopse! Seems 2169 IS the model of the particular wrench. Thank you Mr. Google!

Is this tool the same for the 2009/2010 GTS motor?

The oil filter and housing have different dimensions on DFI engines (MY08), the earlier tool is no longer useful. A universal rubber strap or open key can help you out.

Thanks. In looking at the catalogs for Hengst, Mahle-Knecht and Mann, none of them offer an oil filter for this engine. That Porsche oil filter certainly has to be made by one of the filter biggies.

It is possible that during the first year or two, the filter element is sold on exclusivity by Porsche, then the filter will be sold by the manufacturer as well, which is not uncommon on Europe.

I guess that's one way to contribute to being the most profitable car company in the world.

Do these directions also apply to a 2005 Cayenne V6?

Also, where do you suggest picking up the crush washers and drain plug?

No - use the V6 instructions (where you already posted).
