Porsche does not use the word TSBs commonly found in other marques. Since the Campaigns are scattered all through the forum, I'll try to put them in one place with a link to the discussion. Add any campaigns missed to this thread and I will update the first post. Campaigns are specific to VINs. They are not recalls. Your dealer normally does these as a routine part of service. If you don't use a dealer, then its likely none of this will be done unless using an authorized Porsche independent with PIWIS. These are the campaigns I could find in the forum:

2015 WE33 Source Replace tank leakage diagnosis unit

2015 WE34 Source Check front lid gap

2015 WE47 Source Storing Collapsible Spare

2015 WE49 Source Rear Door Sill Protective Film

2015 WE52 Source Cooling System Vent Line

2015 WE58 Source Check roof console without PAO light

2015 WE60 Source Program Update to the PDK/DME Control Unit

2015 WE88 Source Replace Rear Spray Nozzle

2015 WF14 Source Reprogram DME Control Unit

2015 WF27 Source Perform PCM (w/ XM radio) update

2015 WF61 Source Reprogram A/C System Control

2015 WF74 Source Re-programming DME control unit

2015 WF80 Source Re-programming all-wheel drive control unit

2017 WG39 Source Updating PCM [4.0] and reprogramming Instrument Cluster

2018 Source 122-W2D8L-10 Locking Beeps https://static.nhtsa.gov/odi/tsbs/2018/MC-10145560-9999.pdf


RECALLS (NOT a campaign)

3/9/17 AH02 http://press.porsche.com/news/pdf/2017_pdf/Porsche_Cars_North_America_Statement_Regarding_Macan_Recall.pdf The sensor mat for the occupancy detection system on the front passenger seat may fail, leading to a possible non-detection of a front passenger.

9/20/16 AG06 certain model year 2017 Macan, Macan S, Macan GTS, and Macan Turbo vehicles. In the affected vehicles, the anti-rollbar connecting links may move out of position allowing the vehicle to oversteer in certain driving conditions.

10/30/15 AF06 A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source increases the risk of a fire.

8/1/15 AE02 During manufacturing, the brake booster may have been damaged during installation. Read more at https://www.cars.com/recalls/porsche-macan/#qoBpr5uaBxDTFwWk.99

Thanks for taking the time and effort to consolidate these, much appreciated. Could you please add the year of the campaign so that it's easier to determine if it affects our particular MY. Again many thanks!

Read https://www.autosafety.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/03/How-to-Find-Technical-Service-Bulletins-and-other-Manufacturer-Communications-via-NHTSA.pdf That leads to this from the Federal Register https://www.govinfo.gov/content/pkg/FR-2016-03-25/pdf/2016-06759.pdf Its a tedious read but the result is all TSBs are now supposed to be on the NHTSA website. This looks like a notice to car makers that by US law, all communications to its dealers must also go to the NHTSA which they make available to the public. The problem is in finding them. You can follow the directions in that auosafety.org article but its not logical nor easy to find anything. This is a bulletin on oil leaks. Here's how to find them Go here and click on the vehicle tab. Enter exactly what it says (e.g., 2017 Porsche Macan S). Click on Manufacturers Communications. Now you have to go through them all since sections are not specific. Click on Associated Documents. The center for Auto Safety have a lot of information on all of this.
