Probably a stupid question (not my first :violin: ) can the 924 and 924 turbo and 924S owners manuals be scanned and put up in the forum for members only ( with the permission of Porsche ) ?

They would probably prefer to have the sole rights to sell them to us at at a price!

Factory service manuals and data sheets are NLA. They are copyrighted so cannot be reproduced, copied or presented without permission. There lies the issue........Can't buy them + can't share them :dope:

(but you can buy them sometimes on fleabay. You can find them to download online)

62l



I can confirm that my n/a tank is 62 litres. Have brimmed it from drained empty for endurance testing.
Did not know that the turbo tank is bigger capacity. Where do they hide an extra 20 litres?

Just changed the gerabox oil on my 924s. All the books say 2 litres capacity , but when I checked the old oil it was below the level of the filler plug, and couldn’t feel it with my finger. I took out exactly 2 litres but put 2.5 litres in to get to the correct level where it reaches the filler plug hole .

Was it on level ground?

Visually it did look level , not overly sloped. Might do a recheck when I get it back

I remember a trend of people putting bricks in their toilet cisterns to save water, maybe they did the same to save fuel?
