Porsche workshop manuals are not free.

You can buy manuals in sections from PIWIS TSI. PWIS TSI = Porsche Integrated Workshop Information System - Technical Service Information

I would not buy any 2009 model manuals yet because they are still writing them and what you buy will likely be incomplete. It usually takes Porsche about 1 year to deliver a completed manual.

And, no you do not get to download the completed version free after updates - you have to buy it again.

Hi Loren,

I was at an independant workshop the other day and he has a PIWIS. They let me navigate through it for a few minutes. Of course, I did not want to ask too many questions, cos I did not want to impose. However, I could not find where to locate the electronic workshop manuals that I had thought are loaded into PIWIS.

The left bar was a Menu which read:

DIAGNOSTICS

WIRING DIAGRAMS

FAULT FINDING

INFORMATION

XX - can't remember

YY - can't remember

When touching INFORMATION on the touchsreen, the drop menu showed

What's new

Information

Help

Log - something - can't remember.

To cut the story short, basically, I could not find the workshop manuals under INFORMATION.

Was I looking at the wrong menu?

The manuals/troubleshooting is only available for the newer cars - some came with the 9x7-1 series and much more in the 9x7-2 series.

So the older cars (9x6 series) do not have any additional information in PIWIS. Technically when you access a px6 series car in PIWIS it loads the older PST2 program for diagnosis.

I see, that makes sense. Older cars fall back on the PST2 "emulation".

So, in order to access the workshop repair manuals for, say, a 997, in PIWIS, how would you navigate to it in the program?

Perhaps next time I'll ask him to demonstrate.

Thanks.

Yes, but PIWIS still needs to be connected to the newer car to get the fault finding and troubleshooting tools.

Oh, and all the later model wiring diagrams are on PIWIS too.

I think that if you go to Information>Information it will load the PIWIS browser, and if you look in Favourites (the star icon) there is a link to the Porsche Network. If the PIWIS has an active Internet connection, I believe you can access the manuals from there, presumably via PIWIS TSI as Loren mentioned in a previous post.

But I think access depends on whether the "owner" has bought that particular "module"? Or are all the manuals available through this mode?

If it is a genuine PIWIS and they lease it from Porsche, I imagine this option would be available. I don't know if it is a separate subscription, or included in the lease.
