The flexible brake lines that connect the calipers to the brake line hydraulic system are subject to wear and should be replaced periodically. This article provides a guide on how to replace the brake lines on a Cayman. In this article I replace the factory brake lines on my Cayman with new Braided Stainless Steel Brake Lines. Braided Stainless Steel Brake Lines are a relatively inexpensive way to improve the feel of your Cayman's brakes. The intent of braided stainless steel brake lines...

As many of you know, 987.1 Caymans came with no front or rear brake caliper/rotor cooling ducts. This can be problematic for cars that spend a lot of time on the track. Cooling of the front calipers and rotors can be handled in a very straight forward manner by using 997 GT3 front cooling ducts. The 997 GT3 front cooling ducts are inexpensive and are a drop-in part for the 987.1. The rear cooling duct is a little more complicated, but not too much more. Also, although there are other ways...

A question came up in a discussion about testing Relays. Relays seem like magical little boxes of wonder. They often catch the blame for mysterious electrical gremlins because they're operation is a mystery to most auto enthusiasts. But if we really stop to learn what a relay is and how it works, we will learn that they are really quite simple. Understanding and being able to test them can help us cross them off the list when things go wrong. So let's take a lesson on Relays, how they work and...

In Germany, every new Porsche is delivered with a set of Emergency Triangles and a First Aid Kit. Those of us who opted to do a European Delivery were surprised to receive these cool little safety devices at delivery. These are cool little keep sakes that I'd like to hang on to, and as the German TUV knows, it's not a bad idea to have these in your car. The First Aid kit fits nicely into the storage box in the trunk, but the triangles won't fit there. European cars have a nifty little set...

This document describes replacing the Air Oil Separator(AOS) for a 987.2 The design of the part that attaches to the motor casing is slightly different that other Porsche AOS. There are two round stubs that have o-rings on them, so no more hose clamps. Otherwise, it seems very similar to previous AOS designs. Two bolts on the AOS, E10 torque 13Nm(9.5 ftlb.) Here are the steps to replace the AOS: 1) Remove the top access hatch.

My new-to-me 2009 987.2 has 40,000 miles and it is time to change the spark plugs. Although there is no problem, IMO it is wise to change plugs to prevent them from galling to the cylinder head. I offer this little guide as there doesn't seem to be any 987.2 plug change instructions on the site. Mine is a base 2.9 liter but the S models will be very much the same. Tools you will need include a 10mm socket, a 10mm ET socket (external torx), an assortment of torx wrenches, and a spark plug...

Changing the oil and filter on a GT-4 is not rocket science. This procedure is a little different and a little more difficult on the GT-4 than it is on other Caymans. There are a few specialty tools I would recommend you obtain before tackling this maintenance task. With a few tips and tricks in mind, even an amateur mechanic can handle this job. 1Torque Values Fastener LocationDescriptionTool SizeTorque ValueDrain Plug18mm Aluminum Drain Plug8mm Hex Driver37 ft.lb.Oil FilterPlastic...

I was about to wash down my wheels to remove some brake dust and grime when looking into the wheel well I happen to notice that the rear lateral support arm channels for the rear suspension reinforcement plate were full of gravel. These channels have two ‘U’ shaped groves in the outer edges and obviously are a settling point for dirt and gravel (see attached pictures). So before washing I wanted to get rid of this material so it wouldn’t retain any waterand contribute to corrosion in the...

These are photos of the attachment between the outer door handle and lock assembly. To disconnect the ouster door handle from the lock: The black plastic piece is a slider. Press it and slide it back. This will expose the threaded shaft which can then be separated from the white plastic connection. To reinstall, snap the threaded shaft into the white plastic connector and slide the black plastic slider forward to lock the two pieces together.

Following the instructions for removing the Gauge Cluster: 1. Remove the trim under the gauges. 2. Remove the two screws that hold the gauge cluster to the dash. 3.Pull the gauge cluster out of the dash. I spent a week pulling & pulling, but could never get enough force on the slippery plastic housing to disengage it from the clips. Finally, after a lot of frustration, I taped a loop of strapping tape to the plastic housing and pulled like hell. It Popped out without causing any damage. ...
