The rear suspension support plate isn't something that will go bad or need to be replaced. But, that darn thing is right smack in the way of many components in the back of our Caymans. If you want to change your transmission oil, it's is going to need to come out. Luckily it's pretty easy to remove it, but there are specific warnings that you'll want to be aware of. This article will guide you through a safe removal and reinstallation. 1!WARNING!: Removal of these parts can affect your...

If you had told me back in 2007, when I took delivery of my Cayman S, that I'd some day be taking the transmission out of it I'd probably think you were crazy. I broke a lot of transmissions when I was a kid, but I've learned to respect my transmissions since then. As fate would have it, my car developed an oil leak that necessitated the removal of mine. Removing the transmission from one of these cars isn't as hard as you'd expect by I wouldn't call it easy either. There are a couple of...

The fuel gauge in my 07 Cayman S has always behaved a little strangely. Recently, after filling the tank, the gauge in the dash showed empty (needle bottomed out) and a low fuel warning message was displayed; this even though the tank was 100% full. In the past I had noticed that the fuel gauge needle would take a very long time, sometimes overnight, to respond to totally (or partially) filling the fuel tank. This time however after driving the car back and forth to work for a number of days;...

When I changed my clutch and was putting everything back together, I found that my driver’s side shift linkage did not snap onto the ball on the trans like it should. It felt like it was barely attached. Upon inspection, I found a crack in the plastic ball socket: So I zip tied it to the trans shifter bracket through the spaces between the hard plastic frame and the soft filler plastic. It held fine for about 1,000 miles, while I comptemplated the purchase of all new shifter cables for...

Hopefully this helps some people because it was difficult to find and required microphones etc. This was a left rear cabin creaking/cracking noise that would show up during suspension travel, throttle in turns and pulling in and out of driveways. Additionally it sounded like it was coming from the left rear upper shock mount while driving. This made it difficult because it pointed toward a suspension issue, which was incorrect. All interior plastic was removed, bolts checked, hatch checked,...

Car batteries have a limited life span and will someday need to be replaced in every Cayman. There are many points to consider when choosing a replacement battery and when considering whether or not you'd like to change it yourself. You may want to search our forums for discussions about batteries before you decide on a battery and/or start your replacement. The battery replacement procedure for a Cayman is not much different than that used in other cars, but different enough that I think...

Today I replaced the Window Regulator in my passenger side door. It took me about four hours, including eating lunch, doing some laundry and taking crappy photos of the job. This is not a difficult job, nor does it require any special tools other than the trim removal tools and some smaller torx drivers. I think I used 20, 25 and 30, but I'm not sure. It is a little tricky maneuvering the broken Regulator and the replacement regulator behind the partially disconnected inner metal door panel....

First, you should read the article Replacing Engine Oil and Filter written by Gator Bite. The directions and photos in that article will be invaluable for changing oil and filter on your Gen 2 Cayman as there are only a few differences. Second, although I have changed quite a bit, this article is adapted from an article by Helo Driver. If you have changed oil and filter on your Chevrolet or Ford, you should be able to change them on your Cayman. I might, however, caution that your...

Removing the Rear Bumper Apron Warning: This procedure is best performed with two people. Removing the apron is not difficult, but it does require some bending and pulling on the apron. Attempting to do this alone may result in damage to the painted surfaces. 1). Remove the Rear Spoiler 2). Lower the Rear Spoiler Actuators 3).Remove the Tail Lights
