...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.

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.
