Air filter question


Recommended Posts

Well, I just sold my 99 Carrera C2 and purchased an 07 Carrara S two wheel drive. The car has 12,000 miles and is perfect. What I have now noticed is there are some significant differences between the two cars. I got pretty good at and did all my own maintenance on the 996. Geesh...I can't even figure out how to take the air box apart to check the air filter on this new one!! There must be some clips or something somewhere?? I can't find any information on this in the DIY or in the owner's manual. And what the heck is this about no oil dip stick. I kind of liked to look at the oil in person once in a while. If anyone has a quick fix on how to get that airbox apart please bail me out. Thanks

Check out 6speedonline.com. There are a few step-by-step procedures there.

I attached one such procedure from that forum.

Good luck!

Have no fear GIA, Your 997 is pretty much exactly the same to work on as your 996 was.. Once you get past the airbox.... Yeah.. like it or not the dipstick is a thing of the past on new cars. I miss having one as well..

Enjoy your new car!
