...working on a co-workers 09 Porsche Cayenne 3.6L naturally aspirated and after I get all 30 bolts off the skid plate, I run into this Iím assuming axel looking thing blocking full access to the drain plug. I couldnít get my 19mm socket on the plug securely. It looks like this part is also sunken down about an inch more than in the video. I had the vehicle on ramps so Iím thinking if I jack it up that part will be out of the way. Or I guess I could try using an adjustable wrench. I just donít want to get the skid plate off again and not have any luck. What do you guys say?

Also do you think Mobil 0w-40 Euro blend will suffice when it calls for 5W-30? Itís impossible to find ESP and way too much money



Is this a 3/8Ē torque wrench with a short extension bar? But with a 19mm?

What they said above - use a combo wrench or extension. Don't use adjustable wrench.

The Mobil 1 0W/40 would be a good choice.

Donít have one lol. Excuse for more tools to buy. Didnít know they make 19mm 3/8Ē drive. Never thought about 19mm wrench for some reason and need to go buy (17 or 18 biggest I have). Would prefer to torque drain plug correctly so going to try the socket/extension route first. All I had was 19mm 1/2Ē drive and the head of the ratchet was hitting that part.
Thanks guys, will try to bang this out again soon

As said, a box wrench is the way...

Or a topsider, which is how a Porsche tech would do it.

Why are you doing an oil change for a coworker, on a Porsche, if you don't own a 19mm wrench?

I just think that's the elephant in the room.

Trivia, 19mm = 3/4in I even have a lug socket that is double marked IIRC. So if you have a 3/4 combination or box wrench it should get you through this job.

Only a person wanting to prove he was a real engineer could have done that as opposed to putting it out the bottom.

Just did oil change on one of these st work. Used my Craftsman wrench smile

Have fun getting the cartridge filter out as it's a P.I.T.A

We used Castrol EDGE 0w40 also

Thought I had all I needed. In my case 19mm socket 1/2Ē drive didnít work. Needing 19mm wrench is common on euro vehicles when socket and ratchet wonít do?
Itís not like this thing is brand new... I still try to treat it as if it were but it has over 150,000 miles and is almost 9 years old

Hereís a reason why Iím helping him out:

Thatís oil change plus cabin air filter

Go to Harbor Freight, get a whole set of box-end wrenches in metric for less than $10.00.
