    Porsche 997 C2 - Oil leak from manual transmission

    Went to the dealership on Saturday to get new rear tyres for my car. It's my first sports car / Porsche / 911 / dream car / ... and am quite happy that I got a bit more than 20.000 km out of the first set of rear tyres Smiley (my wife disagrees Smiley).

    Very friendly mechanic, could enter the work place as well, discussed cars and so. Asked him to have a look whether there are oil leaks (always keeping an eye on rennteam since I cannot remember when, I know it's a sour spot for the car). Unfortunately, it seems there is a small leak from the transmission (somewhere more on the left side, looks like the exit of the drive shaft (?) for the left wheel) and not the dreaded RMS issue. Mechanic thinks that only a seal needs to be replaced... Car is with the dealership now (although they let me drive back to my place the Saturday, i.e. it should not be a serious issue) 

    I am wondering if someone else hat a similar experience? Obviously, I am interested to know what it exactly is, how it was caused and especially whether there is a link with RMS? Thinks like that.

    Based on what I read here before, I obviously took the official Porsche warrantee Smiley so it is not keeping me awake at night.

    Last point: they sprayed some degreaser on it and I parked immediately after a 50 km drive Smiley, now I have oil stains on my "polished" concrete floor. All suggestions to get rid of it are welcome?

    I believe is just a seal and it's not a big deal but I would avoid high rpms until it's fixed.

    Thank you. 

    I hope that the dealership can fix it by Saturday, so I will not have an issue with avoiding high rpms.

    If it's a driveshaft seal, it would only be dependent on vehicle speed, not revs.  Though launching from a stop with high revs might give more load (if that's what you meant) and should be avoided.

    Yes, Grant, I meant both. To me high speed is a result of high rpms ;) if you know what I mean :D

    It seems you guys were right: car is fixed (unfortunately I do not exactly know what has been done as my German is not too good) under warranty. Most likely they only replaced a seal Smiley

    Glad to hear that man! Enjoy it in good health!
