Oil Drip - Inside Passenger Front Wheel

Recommended Posts

Well it's been a while since I've been to the site...I am finally back in the driver's seat again with a 2005 Carrera.

I noticed I continue to get an oil drip just inside the front passenger wheel...it's dropping about an inch in from the tire and almost dead center with the wheel. It looks to be power steering fluid and not brake or anything else. I will pull the front wheel this upcoming weekend and see if I can find the root cause...any ideas? I did a search prior to posting this and didn't find anything on this subject.

I need to be about to make sure this is a DIY...I'm now about 400 miles away from my nearest Porsche dealer since I am no longer in So Cal.

Appreciate any input.

All the best,

Well...that oil drip is actually going from what looks to be the lower A-arm bushing (not sure if that's the correct nomenclature)...

Is this something that I can replace myself or do I need to take it to the dealer? I imagine there's not much life left in this bushing now that its starting to seep. It doesn't look too complicated to pull out...I just don't know if a press is required for removal/installation.

Appreciate the input.

All the best,

Thanks Loren! You know, I looked around in there and couldn't see any other seepage. I missed something...wheel comes off next weekend and I'll do a better job of looking around. It must be the shock/strut then...everything else looked dry.

Appreciate it!
