2nd Gear Grind

I’ve been have problems shifting into 2nd gear from 1st where occasional grind occurs. This happens at random both when the car is warm and cold. Down shifts work fine on all gears. Recent 3 year service was done by local Porsche dealer.  Recent recall was done on transmission also. Any insights would be helpful. 






Where can I get parts to rebuilt my transmission.

I am told by the Mechanic where my car is at that the Transmission needs to be replaced with a new one because they can't find the parts.

2008 Cayman S Sticky Clutch

My 2008 Cayman S has a little over 173,000 miles on the odometer. I am still on the original clutch. I recently drove my car, and discovered when I pushed the clutch pedal down, it felt strange. It seemed to depress normally during most of the range of travel, but it seemed as if the pedal wanted to stick down. The clutch pedal hesitated to return, and the clutch slipped momentarily until the clutch pedal did return to the up/at rest position. This condition has come on very suddenly. I have not sensed any prior clutch issues, nor any sign of deterioration.

Triptronic Coolant Valve

Need to replace a leaking Coolant Valve on my  987 Cayman S, two questions: Does the coolant system need drained prior to install? Any tips or tricks accessing the valve? The area is somewhat accessible from the top and bottom but is really tight. Trying not to reinvent the wheel if I don't have to... All help is appreciated! Thanks

2007 Cayman S auto hunting for gear right about 2000 rpm?

From a standstill when going into normal daily traffic at every shift point from 4th on it seems to be hunting for the next gear at about 2000 rpm.  This does not happen when I put the pedal to the metal only when having a soft start in daily commute.  I took it to the Porsche dealership and they couldn’t find anything wrong?  The tech’s said it would not be transmission since the dash would light up with bells and whistles.  So I’m wondering if it has to do with the electronic speed control for auto shifting?  Once up to speed at about 2500 rpm no issues nor hesitations.

First to Second Gear Clunk

I just purchased the 2018 Base Cayman, with manual transmission in August 2017.  Occasionally, like once every 15 shifts, going from first to second gear results in a "clunk" when the shifter drops into second.  Normally the sound for second, and all other gear selections, is a "click" or no sound at all.  I have had no issues with any of the other gears.  My first grind occurred the other day with about 700 miles on the odometer.  I was at a stop sign turning to the left and as soon as I attempted to select second gear I heard the syncro grind and moved the shifter to neutral, let out the

Clutch Pedal Vibration w/ Engine RPM? - 981 Cayman


I have a 2014 981 Base Cayman w/ 54,000 km (34,000 mi).  My clutch pedal started a noticeable vibration / buzz that gets stronger as rpm rises.  It starts to get very noticeable at 2,500 rpm and above.  The same vibration happens whether in neutral or in gear.  The vibration starts as soon as you step on the clutch pedal and happens both clutch in and out with consistent vibration strength.
