    I'm on it cause I would be affected too, stay tuned.

    Roadtrip,

    Is this for ceramic breaks?

    Re: brake recall

    This recall is for brake squealing/squeaking issues. It only affects those with the last 3 VIN numbers lower at or lower than 787 and it's for both steel and ceramic brakes.

    My VIN number is lower than 787 too and my car is NOT affected by this "recall". I'm still trying to find out if this is a "recall" for the US or certain country variants only but it is weekend...

    Re: brake recall

    thanks for the help rc. my car has steel brakes if that factors into the equasion

    Re: brake recall

    Not in the batch !

    Re: brake recall

    My car's VIN is <787 and my Steel Brakes have been squealing since I picked up the car. (900 Miles on it so far). I just had it at the dealer on Friday (Sept. 29) and they said that there weren't any service bulletins on it. They also said that the loud squeal seemed normal. I could understand "normal" if all of the brakes intermittently squealed. Since it's only my driver side rear brake making the noise, I knew something was up.

    Thanks for the post and I'll check with my dealer tomorrow.

    Re: brake recall

    My service manager described the brake issue as such: "There is a workshop campaign-not a recall- on the brakes because they are making a squealing noise in some applications. There is no chance of damage and no risk to the vehicle, it is simply being done to eliminate the noise or prevent it from happening."
    It apparently applies to all cars under 787..PCCB and Steel

    Re: brake recall

    So let me get this straight.

    Is this solely a turbo issue or does it apply to all 997 p-cars with vin no's in question? Because if yes, this would include me and mine sound like a brass band sometimes?

    Re: brake recall

    I don't know if it applies to any other models.

    Re: brake recall

    I have been getting an occassional squeel, steel brakes VIN...245, but no contact from my dealer (Exeter). Are Porsche contacting all owners?

    Re: brake recall

    We should just wait until further notice, apparently there is no safety issue involved in the "recall", so it may take some time until all customers will be contacted. It also seems to be something limited to the US right now, I'll keep you updated if something comes up in Germany.

    Re: brake recall

    My service mananger called me on this. I had the work done yesterday. I had not experienced any squeaks, but a new set of pads for free seemed hard to pass up. The new pads are fine, and maybe its my imagination, but they seem a bit firmer. Car now has 3000 miles and everything keeps getting better--the sound has opened up some and is more resonant at idle. The sport shifter was a bit stiff at first and that too is becoming more worn in and user friendly. Finally, the car seems to rev to the redline more smoothly and with less strain.

    It's interesting that it is the same for PCCBs or steel,--very interesting.
