I have been reading about the need to replace the PDCC reservoir for Panamera (on models with the said option).
Should be done at 60k miles. 
Since reservoir has a built in filter module that cannot be removed/replaced, entire tank needs replacement.

Have seen folks say its a real PITA to do. Started looking closer and found this photo of the tank itself. Somehow it does not appear to be difficult. There are 3 lines going to the tank. 
Just guessing, if I was to remove driver front wheel and lining, I can get to that side. Then I could siphon out the fluid, protect the area with rags, etc, disconnect the 3 lines, and change the tank with a new one.

Anyone comment on the above, whether I am missing something? 
Other folks were saying you have to remove the (serpentine?) belt, to get the tank out. I somehow do not see the need unless you are changing the lines too (unnecessary IMO, as I think they are metal).

Thanks for input. Below is pic of a new tank, showing where the 3 lines connect to it.

I just thoroughly reviewed maintenance schedule for Panamera.  

It appears that PDCC reservoir change is called for in C market countries (not USA).

USA is in B market designation, and for this market, PDCC reservoir change is not called for.

Bringing that up just food for thought.  I will try to post up maintenance schedule summary for B market, so others can have more details on what to maintain.
