The recommended Service Intervals apply under normal driving conditions and do not take into account any Optional Equipment. Dusty areas require more frequent checking and possible replacement of the air filter element. Tyre, clutch and brake wear as well as the condition of the engine oil are all largely dependent on driving habits, and are also affected by arduous operating conditions; this could mean shorter intervals between services and replacement of parts. This applies, naturally, also to: "Battery: check fluid level and, if necessary, top up."

Vehicles with a low yearly mileage (kilometres) should be serviced at least once a year. The extent of maintenance can depend on the driving conditions. Your Official Porsche Centre will be pleased to inform you of the contents of the yearly service check. As part of this servicing, after the first 2 years the Porsche Dealer will make out a Status Report. This is intended to ensure that the conditions for the Long - life guarantee are not jeopardized. If required by the condition of the vehicle, a full upper- and lower-body cleaning may be necessary.

Exchange and new spare parts receive the same contents of service as components of new vehicles.

The terms "inspect" and "check" include all associated work such as adjustments, readjustments, corrections and replenishment They do not include the repair, replacement or overhaul of components or assemblies.

Necessary preparations

First check whether the steering wheel is offset in relation to the steering gear. This requires removing the underside trim panel and centering the steering gear in middle position with Special Tool 9116. If adjustment is necessary, try to get the optimum position for the steering wheel. Then remove ST 9116.

Clamp the steering wheel in middle position before adjusting toe.

Front axle:

Checking the toe

Use a visual or electronic axle measuring unit to check and/or adjust the toe. Refer to the operating instructions for the respective axle measuring unit for the measuring procedure. The following preconditions must be fulfilled before checking the toe for the front axle:

Curb weight of car according to DIN 70020 = ready-to-drive car with full fuel tank, spare wheel and tools.

Correct joint and wheel bearing play (wheel bearing play cannot be adjusted).

Correct tire pressure

1. Bounce the vehicle at rear and front axles 2-3 times and allow to return under its own power.

2. Check the front toe with the steering wheel in the straight ahead position and adjust the tie rods if necessary. (Refer to the next page for wheel alignment values).
