Engine-compartment blowers or other moving parts in the area of the engine
Hands, fingers, items of clothing (ties, sleeves, etc.), necklaces or long hair can be drawn in by moving parts, e.g. the engine-compartment blowers, drive belt, etc., when working in the engine compartment.

The engine-compartment blowers are mounted in the engine compartment.

After the engine is switched off, the engine compartment temperature is monitored for approx. 30 minutes.

During this period, and depending on temperature, the engine-compartment blowers may continue to run or start to run.

  • Carry out work in this area only with the engine off and exercise extreme caution.

Hot engine parts
The engine and adjacent components become very hot when the engine is running.

  • Exercise extreme caution when working in the engine compartment.

Brake Fluid
Regular checking of the brake fluid is part of servicing.

The fluid level should always be between the MIN and MAX markings.

A slight decrease in the fluid level due to wear and automatic readjustment of the disk brakes is normal.

However, if the fluid level falls significantly or goes below the MIN marking, the brake system may have developed a leak.

  • Have the brake system checked immediately. Please contact an authorized Porsche dealer.

Swallowing brake fluid
Brake fluid is hazardous to your health, and may be fatal if swallowed.

  • Keep brake fluid out of children's reach.
  • If brake fluid gets into your eye, immediately rinse with clean water for a few minutes. Then see a doctor immediately.
  • Please note all the information on the refill container of the brake fluid.

Brake fluid attacks and can damage paintwork.

  • Immediately rinse off spilled brake fluid with clean water.

Changing brake fluid
Brake fluid absorbs moisture from the air over time. The absorbed water can impair braking efficiency.

  • It is important therefore to have the brake fluid changed in accordance with the change intervals specified in the "Maintenance" booklet.
  • Use only brake fluid authorized by Porsche.
