Here’s my take on carrying a spare and transporting a flat in a Cayman (I'd previously posted a version of this article at www.planet-9.com). I started with the complete spare kit sold by Sunset in Oregon, Suncoast in Florida and other Porsche dealers: 996 362 020 04 Vredestein Inflatable Spare Tire & Wheel 996 722 101 00 Foam Wheel Insert to hold Jack 996 721 211 00 Scissors Jack with Handle 987 722 061 00 Cover for Spare with plastic Backing Disc & Straps MOUNTING A SPARE

I installed my RSS harness bar this past weekend. I like the structural design of this bar because its base plates mount directly to the body under the reverse lever using the factory hardware. There is also provision for the long leg of the reverse lever to go through the base plate into the body, adding more shear strength. If you look at the first attached photo, the reverse lever 10 x 25 bolt goes through the slotted hole. The leg of the lever goes through the large round hole. The two...

If you track your car a lot, you may find yourself considering the use of some more aggressive brake pads. There are many good choices available. Some folks use them part time only when on the track, others use them full time for both track and street. Regardless of how you want to use them, you will run into one snag. Many of the available race pads are not compatible with Porsche's brake wear sensors, and for those that are, changing the sensors from pad to pad is a hassle that slows down an...

Not long after starting my DE addiction, I started hearing stories of Cayman owners who had problems with the power steering system overheating at track events. In an effort to avoid this fate, I took a look at what could be done to improve cooling with a minimum of effort and expense. The stock power steering cooler is a length of metal tubing under the car. This is very similar in size to the cooler on my Audi S4. The difference is that the Audi has the cooler loop behind the grille of...

Changing the oil and filter on a Cayman is actually very easy, but slightly different than other oil changes you may have performed. There are a few specialty tools I would recommend you obtain before tackling this maintenance task. With a couple of tips and traps in mind even the most novice mechanic can handle this job. 1Torque Values Fastener LocationDescriptionTool SizeTorque ValueDrain Plug18mm Aluminum Drain Plug8mm Hex Driver37 ft.lb.Oil FilterPlastic Filter Housing74mm Oil...

You may have heard how much fun, and possibly addictive, our Drivers Education program can be and have decided to give it a try. I’ve recently returned to the track after an extended absence and in conversations with other students have found that a better understanding of tire pressure could be helpful. Our Drivers Ed manual addresses various brake fluids and pads but I have added some detail about specific fluids and boiling points as well as some pad choice considerations. 4 Tire...

After attending your first autocross or driver’s education event, it’s likely that you’ll be thinking about improving your car’s handling. During discussions with other drivers and “interested spectators” you might be advised to get a “track” alignment or find a way to get “more negative camber”. This article will explain what the alignment parameters of toe, camber, and caster mean and how changes in their settings may affect performance. Finally, I’ll discuss the benefits of having a wheel...

After missing the accelerator once or twice during heel-toe downshifts, I decided to install a set of pedals in my Cayman S. A friend had suggested the Rennline Aluminum Pedals and Santa Claus brought me a set in 2008. Here's what I received: https://caymanregister.org/picture.php?albumid=287&pictureid=2851 https://caymanregister.org/picture.php?albumid=287&pictureid=2852 https://caymanregister.org/picture.php?albumid=287&pictureid=2853 ...

Thanks to our wonderful Porsche engineers, gone are the days that the first inkling that you have a problem with your brake lights, is when you get pulled over by a cop to let you know that a light is out, and possibly even write you a fix-it ticket (let's face it, none of us enjoys getting pulled over, even for a minor infraction like that). So, I was pleasantly surprised when my car informed me that I had a problem with right brake light a couple of days ago. I figured that this...

Porsche suggests the spark plugs get replaced at the 60,000 mile service...nuf said, lets get at it. I'll just go into detail for the steps to replace one plug, they are all similar. UPDATE: In 2008 Porsche lowered the recommended interval for replacing the spark plugs to 60,000 km (~37,000 miles) or 4 years, whichever comes first, for cars in the USA. My plugs looked OK at 60,000 miles, use your best judgement. Thanks to pcormier at P-9 for his spark plug article. Thanks to...
