It’s been a few weeks since the dealership did my $450 two bolt replacement. I’m trying to get the courage up to pull the belly pan and look. I’m not sure I’ll be able to handle the disappointment if it didn’t work.
I lay down in front of the bumper (my body is out of the car underside) and insert the borescope camera through the undercarriage openings. You should be able to see the underside from this position.I got an endoscope from Amazon. It takes a few mins to stick it down the hood to find out.
What year is your Macan? You should have warranty up to 50K miles... even if you are out of warranty due to time, I would certainly play the mileage card with the dealer for warranty. Your car had not been driven that long... it should not be leaking oil.Hello.
I am a newbie. I have been a member for about a year now. I have a few British autos, hence my handle. This is my first German auto. Bought it used with 30K miles. I just love the car, Macan S, A1 Black, 20" RS Spyder wheels, full leather, Prem Pkg Plus.
With the forums help; I changed oil the other day. No issues. I noticed on both sides of the engine, oil leak or leaks. Of course I am not happy with this as I feel Porsche's don't leak oil right?! I will have to look further but as we know it is very difficult to see where the leak is from. I may have to take to a dealer. My Macan now has 40K miles. I don't think it is under warranty but maybe there is something they can do.
So far I have been checking by removing the pan any time I have it up on a lift and I just did that again yesterday and I am not seeing any oil but to your point I have wanted to get a borescope anyway and I will be able to get more detail on what's going on (or not) with one so I will order one up and report back when I can.Are you checking with a borescope, or for drops on your floor? I’ve never had a drop on my garage floor. My leak is very minimal, but enough to form a drop below the A/C compressor. Some of which drops on to the undercarriage panel. But never the floor.
Just an update on how I took care of the TC leak issue on my out-of-warranty 2015 Macan Turbo with 47,000 miles.Thanks.I would appreciate that. I might also have found a third party warranty that does not require an inspection for the coverage. If that pans out I will have that taken care of under the new warranty in a month or so.
