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. ...

This article documents my installation of a complete data logging system in my Cayman S. I have chosen the AiM system not only because offers integration of ECU data and GPS data and a full software suit to configure and analyse it, but also coupling with their SmartyCam HD you get full integration of that data into a synchronized video without post production. You can watch your video with already integrated data on your laptop computer directly following an ontrack session. Here are the AiM...

The Air Oil Separator (AOS) operates to return oil that was mixed with air from the cam covers and return it to the crankcase. It has two inlet pipes, one from each cam cover and a bottom hose where the oil returns to the crankcase. This articles shows the photos taken to remove the AOS from a 2007 Base Cayman. Remove the engine cover. Jack up the car and remove the right rear wheel. Remove the tie wrap on the wiring harness near the right hand hose connection. Squeeze the upper...

The greenfrog (Cayman R) is hitting 222F (coolant) and 252F (oil) at VIR on a 90F+ day, so it's time to add some more cooling. The center radiator installation is well documented and straight forward. Flushing the whole cooling system is much messy and requires special tool (UView Airlift 550000) to refill. In addition there are some differences between 987.1 and 987.2 water pumps. Here are some of the articles and forum threads I researched: ...
