  1. 987 Cayman and Boxster Problems and Complaints
    I hate to keep coming whenever there's an issue and not on good terms! :( But there's something else going on with the Cayman (987.1). I've attached a couple of videos to the post so you can hear what's going on. It started after I took a couple of long distance trips, although there's no...
  2. 981 Cayman and Boxster Problems and Complaints
    My 2014 cayman GT has been making a gear grinding noise from the center console. However it only happens when I am accelerating hard while turning. And it is significantly more pronounced when turning right rather than left. Otherwise the car feels good and under normal driving does not have...
  3. 987 Cayman and Boxster Problems and Complaints
    Hi everyone! Is this the same sound as the famous water pump problem the 987s have? Did anyone experience a similar noise? It is most prominent between 2000 and 4000 RPM. It occurs both when the car is stationary in neutral or when moving. I can hear it when both accelerating and decelerating...

    I have recently notice a pulsating noise mostly at idle. I have a 2006 Cayman S 85000 KM. The noise does not chance regardless wether the clutch is in our out,,, So I have ruled out that. Plus the clutch was replaced 4000 km ago. The noise is not extremely loud... But it is noticeable. I know...

    Hello all - new to the list. I'm on my second day of ownership. Today I noticed something that I didn't notice yesterday. When the clutch is engaged, I hear what sounds like a subtle flywheel-like spinning noise. When I apply power, the noise disappears. When I disengage the clutch...
  8. 981 Cayman and Boxster Problems and Complaints
    Hi all -- I have recently started noticing this random clicking noise on my 981PBS PDK, typically when maneuvering at low speeds. Doesn't need to involve steering -- it sometimes sounds once when moving from standstill at a red light, or when reversing. It's some sort of metallic click, not...

    Do you guys know if it's possible to rebuild / clean the chain tensioners on a 987.1 m97 engine? I'm getting a chain noise on startup and between 2800 and 3000 rpm intermittently. Much appreciated

    Hello, Like many owners my 718 Cayman has had an annoying amount of rattles and squeaks. Most of them I have now tracked down and removed entirely or greatly reduced. So here is a little guide I've made to help fellow owners. Please feel free to add your own experiences. Let's start with an...
  11. 987 Cayman and Boxster Problems and Complaints
    I get a knock noise on the gen1 2.7L Cayman when engine is cold and its idling. Noise is barely audible if you put your ear next to the driver's side wheel. Knocks with a cold engine, fades away into not audible as the engine fully warms up. Louder on drivers side but can be heard from...

    I have a metallic clicking noise coming from the rear of the car... it sounds similar to driving over gravel, when it hits the fender wells or maybe a rubbing brake dust shield. its seems to be coming from the rear of the transaxel and matches with axle speed. clutch in or out in any gear or...
  13. 987 Cayman and Boxster Problems and Complaints
    Guys, gals, I'm going crazy here trying to debug this issue. I have a sound that is exactly the sound you'd expect if you put 2 washers or quarters into a Dixie cup and shook it back and forth. The running joke in my family is that there is a guy hiding in the trunk shaking a cup at me for...

  16. 981 Cayman and Boxster Problems and Complaints
    Hi all, Wanted to see if anyone experienced something similar. While driving (especially on bumpy roads), I hear this noise in the cabin that sounds like a loose washer or two coins hitting one another. An example of the noise would be if you had two coins in your hand and started moving your...

    Just made a little video about waterproofing the top and lubricating the obvious noise areas.

Rpm fluctuations...

    Hi All, Just picked up my 987.2 base 2.9L Cayman and loving it so far. I do have to say it is very quiet compared to my previous 981 base with K&N filters & FVD exhaust. Already have a SOUL catback coming my way but I am just as big a fan of induction noise as I am exhaust noise so looking for...
  20. 987 Cayman and Boxster Problems and Complaints
    So my 2012 Cayman S has been making a whining noise for about a week. It seemingly originated from the accessory drive area - it was independent of vehicle speed, gear selection, clutch in/out, or AC on/off. It didn't appear to be the power steering pump, as there was no change in sound based...
