Is there a video available for DIY oil change for a 996? Do you think that a guy who is not mechanically inclined can do it or should I bite the bullet and bring it to the dealer for $200?

This is absolutely the easiest DIY for the beginner. and you will save yourself over $150. Not sure if the DIY pages are for contributing members only but if they are I suggest joining rennlist as a contributing member. I am going to change my oil this weekend and wouldn't mind filming it and posting a quicktime movie of it if anybody would be interested.

Cheers,

Dell

My bad Loren.....I meant donate to renntech not rennlist. Sorry about that slip. I must have just come from rennlist when I posted that. :oops:

My parents always told me to think before I speak...I guess I failed on that one :o

Cheers,

I would really appreciate it if you would film the oil change. I would be happy to reimburse expenses if you would make a video and send it to me (especially if you would verbally explain the steps). I saw the pictures on the DIY site. Thanks, Dean

Thought I would have it done that weekend but things came up and have been out of town. Back now and the weekend (this weekend the 6 or 7th) will be when the oil gets done. I will video it then. I will post when I get it done.

ok, so I just finished editing the video I shot and it isn't very good (I think the DIY pages you can print here are better). The problem is that there really isn't enough light under the car so vital items are hard to see. Sorry about that. But if you have any questions feel free to contact me and I will walk you through it.

Our local group has filmed 4 oil changes. Hard to film when you are working on a driveway as you cannot get good shots with a video camera. Raman next to the oil has the camera on the ground.

Remove old filter and replace with new. Remove drain plug, let oil drain, replace plug. Fill engine with oil.
