Modern, water-cooled Porsches are extremely easy to work on by yourself, if you have the right aptitude, tools and information.

There have been stories about Dealer Sales People telling their new potential customers that "you have to drop the engine to change the oil", or that "you have to remove the whole convertible top to access the engine bay".

These actual statements couldn't be farther from the truth.  Following, I will document maintenance, repair and 'hacking' DIY proyects that you can undertake yourself.

I have, and so have many others.

Happy Boxstering,
