Panamera turbo rear differential fluid change


Replacing fluid on rear differential for 4 wheel drive panamera turbo. This applies to 4-wheel versions of Panamera. Not sure if fluid is same on other versions, but assume should be ok (but its up to you to verify).

Follow each picture in order from start to end.  

Read entire set before you start.  This gives you a good idea of what to expect, without any surprises (oh, I dont have this tool, etc).

This DIY uses Mobil Delvac 1 full synthetic gear oil 75-W90, which I was able to reference to the replacement fluid Porsche recommends - Shell TF0951.

Replacement schedule is every 120,000 miles or 12 years.  I would definitely not wait that long to do this.  After 60,000 miles the fluid is not even translucent, has a very characteristic metallic smell to it.  Similar numbers were stated for Cayenne turbo vehicles, and folks were all changing these fluids after 60k miles.  I would do so here as well.


If you see anything that you know is not correct, please chime in so it can be corrected.  Thanks and hope it helps.
