Wasz - The link you posted was great. However am wondering if anyone has come across something thats step-by-step with pictures (like the old haynes manuals) - does anyone have a Bentley manual? If so, does this cover engine removal it step-by-step


Its in the official Porsche workshop manual, handily available here:

How did I not know about this... what a great resource! Thumb

Did mine last summer with a bike lift rated to 600Kg (engine/gearbox). I did not have clearance to remove, but worked out I could remove intake once dropped and pull out the engine. I remove the full exhaust system prior to drop to reduce weight and stability. This actually freed a lot of space to work on the engine whilst under the car.

Hello! Sorry if off topic, I do not know where to post this question. On my journey, I lost a set with tools for cars, I bought them so long ago that I don’t remember where exactly.

I choose from these options https://wisepick.org/best-mechanics-tool-sets/, can you recommend which one will be more universal?

Sorry Liam,
we're mostly UK based and the tools sets available here are a bit different.

A few ideas and my personal views:
Buy 'flat drive sockets' and 3/8 are generally the most useful size although 1/2 help for tight nuts and bolts. Unless you're a pro mechanic, any decent make will be ok. Look for ratchets with fine "clicks"

You'll need a decent torque wrench too.

Don't buy cheap spanners, pliers or screwdrivers but again, any reputable brand will probably be ok.

Big sets may not be the best value, start by listing what you think you'll need.

Online can be very good value but you don't get change to 'feel' the tools first.

You'll need a few special tools too, sets don't come with things like circlip pliers, oil filter wrenches, torx drivers and sockets etc.

You'll probably also find you need odd items like long or stubby screwdrivers, unusual length spanners etc, get them when you need them.

Thanks for the answer, I think I understand Smile

I got Crescent CTK170CMP2 for my son-in-law as a starter set. The quality is on par with most other import tools from Sears, Lowe's and the Home depot'. The case is sturdy but it doesn't hold all the sockets in place.

Crescent. The developers of the "Crescent" wrench. Every tool in this kit is marked with the Crescent name with the exception of the adjustable (Crescent) wrench. You would figure that the developers of this wrench would take the time to actually put a Crescent wrench in the kit. But no. The adjustable wrench was just some no name tool. The included adjustable wrench is the lowest quality tool in the kit.

Cracking work OP!

Are you planning to strip the engine down too? If so please take lots of pics and keep this thread updated Thumb

That tool set is superb! I feel like I have zillions of tools but can never find the one I want as I'm really untidy and just leave them where they fall mainly Embarassed

Maybe 'less is more' Question
