As I look at the back of the car which is F? Is it to my right hand side nearest me?
I've ordered 6 new coils because apparently, yet again, they've been modified!
Thanks for the help guys.

O/S is the drivers side on a RHD car and that would be bank 1 .


Also known as the right side .

Bank 2 being the side nearest the kurb .. N/S , passenger side .

Left side .


Didnt really understand the question Sad

New coils have been modified and they are much larger which sometimes causes issues with the heat sheild not fitting .

Apologies re the question, or explained very well. I’m tired now after changing the coils Grin
Ok am I correct in assuming that nearside numbering of the cylinders is 1,3 &5? 5 being the back of the car.
Thanks Thumb

I've never heard them called a letter before, usually associated with the cylinder number.

I assume the next question will be, how do I get F off? Laughing

Standing at the back of the car faceing the front then the o/s would be 3,2 and 1 cyls .

n/s would be 6,5 and 4 cylinder .

Its easier to think that the engine in a Boxster is opposite that of a 996 so on a boxster the crank pully is at the front and thats how you work it out .

From any Porsche engine then left side of the crank pully is bank 1 and 1-4 and right side is bank 2 and 5-8 ... subtract cyls as nec for your model .
