  3. Transmission Swap???

    981 Cayman GT4 Chat
    Got the call from Porsche, they want to swap out the transmission in my GT4 (nothing wrong, just a preventative recall so that I don't get the 3rd gear issue - which I haven't ever had). Anything to look out for from anyone who has had this done? Can I keep my original transmission? I mean...
  4. EVOMS Transmission Shift Linkage

    987 Cayman and Boxster Modifications
    Has anyone installed these EVOMS shift linkages (EVOMS Billet Shift Linkage V2.0) on their Cayman/Boxster? I was considering getting the Numeric Racing cables, but for a third of the cost, I am wondering if these solve the problem just fine. Plus there's a lifetime guarantee and I'm sure install...
  5. 981 Manual Transmission Hard to Shift

    981 Chat
    MY PROBLEM SOLVED - I have a 2013 Boxster S 77K miles with a manual transmission. The car was always hard to shift especially into 2nd gear. The other day after a week of not driving, the car wouldn't shift at all. It was frozen in neutral. Yikes! I called the local $tealership and they...
  6. Shifter Issue

    987 Cayman and Boxster Chat
    HI all, Today pulling close to home and shifter went completely slack - move everywhere and no gear - stuck in first. Got it home slowly. Read other posts about the cables 'popping off' at the transmission. Jacked car up. Left and right cables in place at transmission and not broken there. I...

  8. Cayman PDK Question

    987 Cayman and Boxster Problems and Complaints
    I’ve been searching but can’t quite seem to find a thread that addresses my question: I’m not really sure how to describe this exactly, but is it normal for a PDK transmission to shift slowly at very slow speeds? When I slow down but don’t fully stop and then slowly accelerate, it seems like...
  9. Clicking from Transmission, differential bearings??

    987 Cayman and Boxster Modifications
    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...
  10. 16 Cayman GTS Manual Transmission Catastrophic Failure

    981 Cayman and Boxster Problems and Complaints
    Hello everyone, It has been quite some time since I have been around these parts but it is time for some new news on my GTS. Some of you may remember my saga of the engine ticking noise that led to replacing the lifters that led to not changing anything. Well that very same car with 30,434...

    Is 75W90 the proper fluid to use in a 2015 Cayman manual transmission? I recalled using 75w90 in my 2013 BS. Just could not remember.

  13. PDK transmission oil

    987 Cayman and Boxster Service and Tech
    I have a 2010 CS w/PDK. According to Porsche’s recommended maintenance schedule the PDK transmission oil should be changed every 60k miles or 6 years. My car has 26K miles and is 7 years old. How important is it to change the transmission oil based on time versus miles?

  15. S Model 2006 CS Transmission Components

    987 Cayman and Boxster Chat
    Can someone tell me the function of these 2 parts highlighted in the attached photo. The plug at the back (red arrow), when removed has a shank with threads but also looks like it has graduations cut in it to act as a mini dipstick, but I don't think the oil level should be that high. The...
  16. My clutch has finally died at 148,000 miles

    987 Cayman and Boxster Chat
    Title says it all. I've had my 2005 Boxster S since May of 2005. My clutch lasted 148,000 miles and now I believe the throw-out bearing is dying as the pedal is vibrating and engagement feels all lumpy when I press in the clutch. I'm going to say I don't mind so much. 148,000 miles out of a...

    987 Cayman and Boxster Chat
    Here's a quick look at the upcoming FUNCTION-FIRST performance and reliability upgrade for the 987 shifter cables... The OEM shifter cables use large rubber ends to isolate the shifter from the transmission. These soak up your effort and numb the feedback and directness required for optimal...
