source for bulletin on center lock greasing etc

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to find a source for the latest bulletins on the maintenance and cleaning and greasing of the centerlocks. Guess it's not a TSB and don't see anything listed there. I've heard several talk about it but haven't seen it in print.

Getting my '10 GT3 this coming weekend and am just starting my "homework" !!

Did you download the Owners Manual here?

It has a section on center locks with lots of information. Start on page 197.

The parts list does not list the dry lube like the Carrera GT did.

The lube for the Carrera GT was Mclube Sailkote High Performance. About $100 per can from your dealer or $12 from a marine dealer like below...

Thanks.

I also found a tube of lubricant for the centerlocks at Suncoast- it's a Porsche part and their prices are usually pretty good.

I have a white with red RS and want to switch the black center locks for red ones. I picked up a set of 4 red center lock bolts from Suncoast but they do not have the inside gasket or cone, so I need to remove and reuse the parts from my existing black bolts. Can someone fill me in on how to get the cone off the existing bolt? I tried to lever it with a screwdriver but it just spins and I don't want to put too much pressure and risk damaging the threads on the bolt. I'm sure there must be some trick to this that I am just not seeing.

It is held in with a circle clip. Part

16 in the picture is the clip. You might need

a bent sharp ice pick to get it out.

Latest news from dealer is that the nuts must be torqued at 600Nm instead of 500Nm (if you track your car). Also my dealer called me back to have the CL nuts exchanged as advised by Porsche. Not sure what the change is...
