Porsche 992 Turbo S

I have recently ordered a 992 Turbo S and been informed it isn't supplied with a jack or wheel brace. This may be unnecessary if I had a puncture as there is no spare wheel, however removing a wheel on my own premises is a must for cleaning and protection. Has anyone else had this problem with this or other models?
 
Thanks

It’s probably because the car has centrelock wheels. These are tightened to a very high torque and are deemed not to DIY. There’s a big discussion on this in P’heads forum at the moment (am I allowed to reference that?!) Which is worth reading

Thanks for your response.
Well that may be the case but many owners are more practical than others and are DIYers!
I‘d welcome a general discussion and answer to the issue.

Good luck!

The car comes supplied with a centre-lock ¾" drive socket and a little tool enabling removal of the decorative centre cap and relocation of the locking spindle.
 
With a puncture, you are expected to have the vehicle recovered for tyre replacement. However, in the configurator, you can order tyre sealing compound and an electric air compressor (£42) for use in an emergency. In my experience, these have rather limited application and most of us also carry a Silverline puncture repair kit and tube of superglue, since these tend to be of more practical use and have been proved several times on tour.
 
BTW, there's a more recent description of centre-lock wheel removal here https://www.porscheclubgb.com/forum/tm.aspx?m=1004120
 
I now use a proprietary wheel alignment tool rather than the little trolley mentioned in the article since I find this more convenient. Also, I have a brand new spare aligner surplus to my needs atm that I would sell, so please PM if you need further details.
 
Regards,

Thanks again Clive for the info.
Yes am interested in the alignment tool mentioned. What does it look like, how does it work and what is it’s cost ?

Hi Clive,
 
Thanks for the information. Seems an expensive tool for what it appears to be !
Do you have a telephone number I could speak to you on ?
I'm not taking delivery of my car until September but just getting a feel for what I may need in certain situations.
Regards
 
Chris
