I just picked up my 2005 911 Carrera from the shop; had them change the gear oil. On the way home (it was raining/I was driving conservatively) the computer started displaying a message about being careful with the clutch. Is this normal after a gear oil change? Seemed to go away as I got close to home and I haven't driven it again to see if it will come back. Wasn't able to find any forum entries on this message. Thanks in advance.

Seeing that nobody has yet weighed in on your issue, perhaps the next thing would be to fire her up again and see if the warning comes back. Never seen not heard about the computer sensing a clutch problem. For us curious ones, do post an update. Cheers.....

That's strange. Did your shop use OEM gear oil (75W90)?

Plus, I thought the clutch fluid is a shared system with the brake fluid (it is on the 987....not sure about the 997). So, when was the last time you had your brake fluid flushed? Remember, this is a 2 year service interval on our cars. Just a thought.
