2rd gears and the transmission fix

Recommended Posts

Well.. my 1999's second gear is getting harder to engage. So I bought it in the Rector's but they told me it will be $3000 to open it and parts are separate items.

Hard to swallow.. does anyone know the Porsche's waranty about this transmission stuff.. I know most of the car has great coverage about things like this (I never have to worry anything about my M5 etc.)

I am new to the P car..

Porsche does not sell internal parts for the 6 speed transmission. They do sell rebuilt units. Don't know what your problem is but if it requires a part Porsche does not sell? Maybe you can ask Rector if they have found a source for parts because there are others who have tried to find parts without any luck.

There is a 6 speed Boxster owner on the UK board that had a problem with second gear. The dealer took the transmission apart and said he needed another one. He took his transmission in a box over to an independent shop and they rebuilt it. Too bad the shop is in England.
