My manual shifting has become a little more "notchy" than it used to be. I'm wondering if there is an adjustment for these cables and if so, if there is a TSB on how to do it. Thanks.

There is a Porsche Shift Adjustment Tool you can get off eBay for about $12 or so. It locks the shifter in place while you adjust the cables. Also here is a good DIY article on adjustment and/or replacement of the shift cables on a 997. PRESS HERE

And a not so recent post of adjusting the shifter but still good info: PRESS HERE

Those are the standard shifter tools.

If you have a short shifter (either OEM or B&M) you will need the special one for the short shifter as it has a larger shaft.

Will that work with the factory short shifter? Edited by mffarrell

No that is only for the stock shifter.

Any Porsche parts guy worth their weight should be able to find the same tool for the factory short shifter.

Just checked with Phil at Sunset.

The green tool ending in 91 (00-721-961-91) is the tool for the short shifter.

The white or orange tool ending in 90 (000-721-961-90) is the tool for the standard shifter.

I ordered the green tool (00-721-961-91) - $3.13 plus shipping to check and will post once I can confirm.

Did the tool work for you?

Good info.  It's interesting that the massive Bentley service manual says nothing about shifter adjustment or replacing the cables.

 

I just had my trans pulled and clutch replaced.  Is it recommended to check the shift cable adjustment after this is done?
