Service manual / Diagnostic tools

Recommended Posts

First-time Porsche owner at age 57, loved them since I first saw a whale-tail '75 Turbo Carrera at age 13. Just picked up an '06 Cayman S on Thursday.

 

I'd like to get a service manual. Back when I first got my Hummer I got a PDF of the manual and it's been a godsend, if for nothing else than getting part numbers and torque specs.

 

I see multiple options for sale, ranging from $20 to $200 or more. Does anyone have a source for a manual they're happy with?

 

Also, any opinions on a good diagnostic tool? The Durametric unit looks interesting.

Porsche stopped publishing their service manuals around 2004 and switched to an online subscription service for those without a PIWIS unit (it is included with the PIWIS), so there are no reliable sources for legitimate  PDF files.  Part numbers you can get online from sources like board sponsors Sunset Porsche’s parts website.

 

The Durametric system is hands down the best aftermarket diagnostic tool for Porsche.
