    991 recall

    For info - I received notification of a recall for my 991.1 to retrofit a heat shield - not that they can do it yet given the pandemic, but it seems there have been a few instances of engine fires due to "foreign objects" left in the engine compartment? I seem to recall something mentioned on here before, but didn't think they'd recall & retrofit a fix.

    Sounds like what Porsche did to my 991.2 Turbo S. My car was in the workshop for the wheel change, no recall

    Just received the same notification too today from PCGB ...they.re claiming its due to some cleaning components stuck in between the heat shield ! 


    Re: 991 recall

    I'm kinda glad as just over a year ago, a rodent stashed a load of dry dog biscuits in my car. Took me ages to suck them out of the front using a dyson & had to get the undertrays removed to get rid of the rest. Ever since then, when the engine gets reasonably hot there is a stench of cooked dog food from the engine bay. Porsche wanted £300+ to remove the rear bumper & clean it - presumably they'll have to remove the rear bumper to fit this shield so hopefully I can get it cleaned at the same time!
