Home Porsche Repair Porsche 911 (996): 1999 - 2005


"★ ★ ★ ★ ★ With more than 1000 pages and nearly 1500 full-color images, the book covers just about every task the owner will ever need to perform, from regular maintenance to complete engine overhauls.

At first, we were skeptical of the value of color photography in a factory-style service manual. However, the color images really do help the reader understand how the guts are arranged inside the car. Even steel and aluminum parts appear distinct; in black and white, the shades of gray would have been indistinguishable. This Bentley reference guide is a must-have if you own a 996."

"Roughly 11 sections with great detail and photos the factory manuals never had. 1024 pages (and over 7.6 pounds) the manual is well composed and covers even some of the more tricky tasks. The photos are certainly worth a thousand words many times over.

Clear, concise, detailed and from what I can see complete - this IS the service manual to have if you own or work on the 996 series cars. I highly recommend it."

"The finished product is a quality book with good use of color photos of parts and detailed steps to repair tasks. Full wiring diagrams look easy to work with. And they speak to the now known maintenance issues and fixes.

I may not tackle the big stuff (Hope I have no need to) on my C4 but this manual gives me confidence that I can do much more DIY service and repair."

"AWESOME...this is JUST what I was looking for & to me its got to be the best one available for the 996 other than if you want to pay 2k or more for the workshop manual!"
