If the warning light and warning message appear when driving:

  • Stop immediately in a suitable place.
  • Do not continue driving.
    Please contact an authorized Porsche dealer.

For information on warning messages on the multi-function display:

  • Please see the chapter "OVERVIEW OF WARNING AND INFORMATION MESSAGES" on page 126.

Electromechanical Power Steering

No Power Steering Assist

When the engine is stopped (e.g. when on tow), no power steering assistance is available.
Increased force is required for steering.

  • Exercise extreme care when your vehicle is being towed.
  • Have the fault corrected.
    Please contact an authorized Porsche dealer.

Changing Air Cleaner
Regular replacement of the filter element is part of servicing.

  • In dusty conditions, clean the filter element more frequently and replace it if necessary.
  • Please see the chapter "MEASUREMENTS ON TEST STANDS" on page 220.

Changing Particle Filters
Regular replacement of the filters is part of servicing.

Dirty filters can be the cause of reduced air throughput, e.g. the windows can mist up.

  • Have the filters replaced.
    Please contact an authorized Porsche dealer.

The particle filters ensure that the fresh air entering the passenger compartment is virtually free of dust and pollen.

  • If the outside air is polluted by exhaust fumes, press the recirculated-air button.

Tires and Wheels
The original equipment tires and wheel rims on your Porsche comply with all applicable Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards.

For your safety remember the following:
– Wheel rims and wheel bolts are matched to fit your Porsche.
– If you intend to use other than original equipment wheels, be sure that they conform to Porsche specifications for your
model. Only tires with the same make and with the same specification code (e.g. "N0", "N1"...) can be mounted.
– The use of wheel rims and wheel bolts that do not meet specifications of the original factory installed equipment will
affect the safe operation of your vehicle and affect warranty coverage.
– Before you plan on exchanging wheels, or snow tires already mounted on the wheel rims, consult your authorized
Porsche dealer.
Your dealer has the technical information necessary to advise you which wheel rims and wheel bolts are compatible
with the original factory installations.
