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...

OK guys, this isn't rocket science, but if you've never applied one of these this may help you get a really great look from your Cayman Register Window Decal. Yup, that's right. We've got our own window decal. It's the same diameter as the other PCA window decals so you can have one on each side of your car, a balanced set. A decal will be sent to every new member using the mailing address provided during registration. If you're reading this, then you've done all you need to do to get one....

Porsche brake rotors can last for many years of normal street use without wearing out. For other owners 'normal' use also includes track duty which can accelerate wear and/or cause other defects like cracking. When normal wear or defects reach a certain threshold it is time for new discs. I will use the terms "rotor" and "disc" interchangeably, "rotor" because it is the part of the brakes which actually turns, and "disc" because of the part's shape. I feel this is an acceptable practice...

I recently removed the Brey-Krause model R-2035 fire extinguisher mounting bracket from the manual sport driver's seat of my 2007 Cayman. From left-to-right, the attached photographs show various stages of disassembly, with the final two photos showing top and bottom views of the assembled pieces. The trickiest part of the installation, aside from removing and installing the HEAVY factory seats, is sliding the flat plate (containing the welded nuts) underneath the seat cushion springs and...

Upper engine cover removal will probably be the first disassembly most owners will do on their beloved Caymans, and subsequently the most frequent disassembly operation. For almost every car on the road you can just pop the hood to get access to the engine, but placing the engine in the middle of the car kind of eliminates this easy method. Why? Access for maintenance or checks like Air Cleaner Cartridge Replacement or Checking the Power Steering Fluid Level. Installing a clear...

This is a very basic procedure, practically not worthy of an article, but it does bear mentioning that you must remove the upper engine cover to access the power steering fluid reservoir. So, even if you are not having any problems, every time your cover comes off go ahead and check your fluid level. Many people use the abbreviation PS for "power steering", which fact may aid you in future searches. It might have been a nice feature if Porsche had included a little door you could pop open...

Replacing the Cayman air cleaner is pretty straightforward, and would be extremely easy except for the fact that the clearances are very tight. Some people refer to the air cleaner as an air filter, the engine air filter, etc., I would consider all to be correct. Why? The air cleaner is a scheduled maintenance item. Some owners in dusty or dirty environments will decide to replace this item on an accelerated schedule. Prerequisite- Remove Upper Engine Cover (link) Tools-
