Rebuilt Tiptronic


Recommended Posts

Just got my Boxster Tiptronic back from the rebuilders and unhappy with shape of the gasket. It is broken like this in 5 places. Should i change this gasket or fill the tip before installing to see if it will leak? Can i pre-fill the TC before installing as well? Also I ordered the Porsche part# 999.917.547.00 ATF and was sent Fuchs 5005. Is that approved for the ZF 5hp19?

Looks like a cheap after market gasket. Unless it leaks, I'd leave it alone.

While you should dump at least 1 qt. of fluid into the converter before installing it on to the trans, don't fill the trans itself until it is in the car, and then do it according to the OEM refill technique.

I'd change it, that type of damage can often be caused from over torquing the pan bolts. Carefully inspect the bolt hole in the pan to be sure they are not deformed as they will just damage the new gasket.
