In Part 1, I covered some of the basic functions that can be performed using the Enthusiast version of the Durametric cable. In this tutorial, I will discuss some of the more advanced uses of the cable, including some Coding functions for those who purchase or borrow the Professional cable. NOTE: Some some of these functions, particularly Activations and Coding could result in damage to your vehicle, as well as disabling some of the normal safety functions of your car. You undertake these...

A clutch is a wear item so it's only a matter of time before we each need to replace one. I replaced mine at 80,000 miles because I was in there to replace a leaking IMS cover seal. As it turned out, my original clutch was still in excellent condition. But there's nothing like the bite of a new clutch, and my leak repair required removal of the clutch, so replacement required nothing more than ordering parts. Because there is so much labor involved, it would have been senseless for me not to...

It was January 2007. I had my Cayman S for four short months and I was about to break a promise I'd made to myself. A friend had asked me if I'd be willing to install a Borla exhaust system on my Cayman and write up an article on what I thought. At first I declined. I really didn't have the money to spend on something like this, and I had promised myself I wouldn't start down the slippery slope of vehicle modifications with my Cayman S, a road I'd been down before with poor results. I was sort...

Replacing the Cabin Air Filter (also referred to as the Pollen Filter) is possibly the easiest maintenance task to perform on a Cayman. I'll demonstrate this task on my 2007 Cayman S. There are aftermarket filters available, but I like to use OE parts for my Porsche. The part number of the factory Porsche filter is 997.571.229.01. It's available at any Porsche parts department. I usually keep one on hand. Once you've obtained an OE filter or suitable replacement, you're ready to...

This is a very basic DIY and I hope to contribute more as I get to know my new Cayman over the years. But chalk it up as the first wrenching done on my new car. (I love working on cars) I wanted the safest method of getting the stickers off without trashing my brand new CRs sun visors. So, this DIY is a summation of several DIYs that I read on the topic, that works, at least, for gen 2 vinyl Porsche sun visors. I read about the sun visor sticker removal on another forum. Ever since it...

Changing the transmission oil in a Cayman will keep its transmission shifting nicely and will prolong its life. Porsche recommends replacing the transmission oil at 108,000 miles or at 12 years of age, and I think it goes without saying that tracked cars should see a fluid replacement sooner than recommended. The transmission doesn't have a filtration system, so this is an area where clean oil can go a long way. Check out this discussion to learn why regular gear oil changes are a good idea,...

Changing a battery or suffering a dead battery is something that all of us will experience at one point or another. Our Caymans are very sophisticated. They contain many computerized control modules that may/can/will be effected by loss of battery voltage. This technical article will present the many instructions that Porsche recommends to their mechanics after loss and replacement of battery power. 1 Control Unit Memory Values and faults stored in the control units can be lost if the...

This article and accompanying pictures describe the procedure for removing the 981 Cayman upper engine cover. Tools required are: Plastic trim removal pry tools-available at most auto parts stores for under $20. Torx T30 driver-although a standard screwdriver handle type will work for most of the bolts, the two center front bolts on the engine cover provide very little working clearance, thus a short stubby T30 which can fit in a small 1/4 inch drive ratchet will eliminate much swearing....

This Article discusses two accessories geared towards those who regularly track their Caymans. Jack Box NOTE: Porsche officially recommends jacking up the Cayman only at the specified lift points on the chassis; refer to Gator Bite's Tip of the Week: Lifting the Cayman Porsche's recommendation or warning notwithstanding, many of us who track our cars desire an easier way to jack up the car for swapping tires, servicing brakes, etc. Individuals and teams that race Caymans have...
