Torque for belly pans

Recommended Posts

I searched the WSM and this forum for "pan" but didn't see any specification for the proper torque for the belly pans on my 06 C2S. Must be in the WSM but I guess I'm not using the correct search word. Can someone please point me to these. I want to know the proper torque values before taking them off to have a look around.

If you mean belly pan as in engine oil pan protection plate, 7.5 ft lbs.

If you mean underside body panels, just hand tighten.

If you mean engine oil/sump pan.

1. torque is 7.5 ft lbs IIRC.

2. seal is loctite 5900 silicone, tightening sequence inside to out, opposing sides, 1.5 mm bead of silicone in precisely the correct line around the pan and bolts otherwise it will leak.

3. no gasket is used. The sealing agent is silicone.

4. if i were you i wouldn't do it, unless you are skilled with silicone application and have a work shop manual, you'll find some stuff in the pan but probably not enough to worry about.

5. better use of your time/money to just cut your oil filter and examine it for metal debris and perhaps order an LN magnetic drain plug.

Especially for a later 996 or 997 I give the above advice.

Thanks, guys. I was referring to the underbody plastic covers. I'm surprised that there are actually bolts on the car for which Porsche doesn't have a torque value :) . Not being critical though, I love that they provide torque values for so many things.
