Thanks Maxime75us for sharing.

Does anyone know how often do we change the supercharger belt?

Supercharger belt

Thanks for sharing about the battery. Iím sure Iíll have that sooner or later.

I think the super charger belt belt is supposed to be swapped out every 60k miles.

I am serious

I was wondering if we really need to replace the belt evi6 years. I just had my car serviced at a private shop and it was 6 yeas at 60k. The mechanic check the belt and he said the belt is really in good condition and no need to change it. He said We can check it every year.

I would not listen to the mechanic. I would change mine. The reason is that belt is so cheap, but if it breaks, things that may break due to that are so expensive. Plus by not changing it, and if it ever breaks while I was driving hard for just one second, and breaks anything, I will not be able to sleep. Porsche is a full blown sports car dressed in a sedan outfit, which can easily be proved by simply flooring the accelerator or throw a corner at high speed, or take it to a track and find out. Panamera is a four door sports car, not a real sedan. Every molecule inside spells sports car. Since it's not really a sedan under the Porsche shield, do not treat it like one in any aspect.

There are some other "sports cars" in which the "sports" ends between the motor and the transmission. You floor the accelerator and engine will give you a lot of acceleration while the car begins to fall apart, and as expected, those "sports cars" were never able to finish endurance races without at least a few time consuming repairs, that is, if they even finish. We know from racing results over the past 70 years that Porsche don't build partial sports cars. For this reason, I respect their engineering calculations and therefore fully trust their maintenance schedule.

I fully agree with you atwong1. I go by the recommended service schedule. How hard to replace the belt DIY? my car 2016 I probably need to do it in 2022, 6 yrs or 60K miles. LOL ...

Inpection guide is here: B thru G needs replacement. A is acceptable to continue use.



To remove and replace, try this:

I think it also mention about some use of an a/f 30 clutch driver. to perform the above.

If you accidentally loosen the wrong bolt or screw, here are the torque specs:

I am Chinese, but my technical language is limited because I learned engineering in the U.S. I have asked a local mechanic about what those are, and he said basically all the unnumbered bolts in the picture are supposed to be torqued at 24ft/lb. For those of us who don't use torque wrench every day, please be sure to calibrate your torque wrench every six months.

And these are only for the bolts on the pulleys and torque values are before belt installation.

Tires

Whatís everyoneís experience with tires. I had a new set of rears out on when I purchased the vehicle. Put on Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 295/35 R20s. They are the all-seasons.

After 7,000 miles of regular daily driving they are toast already. Tire Rack has the treadlife warranty listed as 45,000 then that halved if tires are staggered setup which I have. So I shouldíve gotten ~22,500 out of them. Havenít tried a warranty claim yet.

Wanted to to see if anyone else had similar issues or could recommend a tire that might last longer. A grand on tires every 6 months or so seems a little excessive.

I might have to switch switch to a dedicated summer/winter set up to help.

Don't step on gas pedal so hard when you are in e-power mode. LOL ... I have 2016 Pan Hybrid, 28.5 Kmiles. the Michelin 4 season rear tires are down to 85%. The front tires are about 70%. So I need to replace them all at 30K miles next month. $1.7K michelin 20" from American tires for 4.
