996 2003 crankcase half sealant application

Recommended Posts


Page 89 of the Carrera (996) Group 1 workshop manual has a diagram which illustrates where the drei Bond sealant is to be applied to crankcase half 4 – 6. This diagram differs from the one on page 232.

Does any know which diagram is correct for a 2003 996 3.6 litre engine.  Additionally it seems a bit strange that both diagrams omit applying sealant in certain areas.

Aside from that both diagrams are a bit fuzzy. Maybe there is a better quality copy somewhere on line ?

Thanks for your assistance

Page 89 is for 3.4L engine and p232 for 3.6. They are very similar. The part that doesn't need sealant is directly above the oil sump so it's ok if oil seeps through there.

Just make sure you also apply sealant around the two black coolant gaskets between the case halves (in case it's not clear from the diagrams).

Thanks, that makes perfect sense as did you explanation of torque to yield..


The Porsche workshop manuals are a bit confusing...........  I still havent been able to figure out what I am supposed to check with respect to the sealing balls on the crankshaft carrier. There are 6 present but I have no idea what is meant by them being correctly caulked !!
