Moving Engine Parts
Take great care to ensure that hands, fingers, articles of clothing (e.g. ties, sleeves, etc.), necklaces or long hair cannot be caught up by the radiator fans, drive belt or other moving parts.

The radiator fans can start or continue running as a function of temperature, even with the engine switched off.

  • Exercise extreme care that parts of the body, articles of clothing or jewelry do not get caught in the radiator fan, drive belt or other moving parts.
  • Carry out work in these areas only with the engine off and exercise extreme caution.

Electric Shock from Ignition System
When the ignition is on, all cables and wires of the ignition system carry a high voltage.

  • Exercise special care when working on the ignition system.

Failure to Secure Vehicle
If the vehicle is not secured, or incorrectly secured, during repair work, it could move unexpectedly or fall from the car jack or car lift.

  • Be alert and cautious around the engine at all times while it is running.
    If you have to work on the engine while it is running, always apply the electric parking brake and put the gearshift lever in neutral or the Tiptronic S selector lever in position P or N.
  • Always support your car with safety stands if it is necessary to work under the car. The jack supplied with the car is not adequate for this purpose.
    Switch off level control of air suspension and height adjustment.
  • Jack up the vehicle only at the specified jacking points on the underside of the vehicle.
  • Never start the engine when the vehicle is jacked or lifted up. Vibration from the engine could cause the vehicle to fall.
  • When working under the car without safety stands but with the wheels on the ground, make sure the car is on level ground, the wheels are blocked, and that the engine cannot be started.
    Withdraw ignition keys (switch ignition off in vehicles that have Porsche Entry & Drive).


  • Incomplete or improper servicing may cause problems in the operation of the car. If in doubt about any servicing, have it done by your authorized Porsche dealer.
    Improper maintenance during the warranty period may affect your Porsche warranty coverage.
  • Some countries require additional tools and special spare parts to be carried in your vehicle. Please make enquiries before driving abroad.
