Corrections & Notes to the Current Edition

  • Page 109, Part number 996.606.125.00, 3rd line in the table, should start with 986 instead (986.606.125.00).
  • Page 132, the second-to-last paragraph. Should read "remove the fill plug from the bottom side of the transmission (the word "bottom" is missing).
  • Page 281, the part number listed for the cruise control cap (996-613-504-10-A05) appears to be for the one printed in German.  The English part number is 996-613-508-10-A05.
  • Page 202, the last sentence on the page is unclear as to the torque values used for the tie rods.  These are as follows:
    - Tie rod nut that mates into the wheel carrier and has a lock nut to hold the tie rod ball joint in place:  56 ft-lb (75 Nm).
    - Tie rod lock nut that holds the ball joint onto the tie rod itself: 37 ft-lb (50 Nm).
  • Page 81, "Replacing Belt Tensioners", the torque values listed for tightening the pulleys require additional clarity.  Tighten the pulleys to the following values:

    Upper Pulley:

      - 34 ft-lb (46 Nm) for the upper bolt if it's an M10x145 (8.8) bolt
      - 48 ft-lb (65 Nm) for the upper bolt if it's an M10x145 (10.9) bolt

    Lower Pulley:
      - The lower pulley bolt is tightened to 17 ft-lb (23 Nm) only
  • Page 161, Caption 11, at the bottom, it should read "Then crank them another 120 degrees as shown in the next photo"
  • Page 227, Caption 2, The part number for the right side spin lock is 986-563-714-03
  • Page 62, In the table at the top, the serial numbers for the 996 3.4L engines should be 14164 and 14165
  • Page 34, Caption 1: It has been reported to me that in some cases, the later-style connection hose is not needed.  There seems to be some variations on whether this newer-style hose fits on some cars or not.  More research is needed...
  • Page 288, Paragraph five - "passenger door" should be "driver's side door"
