Good Luck on Getting Out Oil Filter!

I spent the afternoon trying to get the oil filter out of a 2019 Base Cayenne. I removed the engine cover, air filter, air filter box and heat shield. I was able to undo the oil filter cap completely, but could not get it out far enough to remove the filter element. I would have to remove some linkage to the turbo or remove a metal cross member. Both options seemed like big jobs with a high likelihood of dropping bolts into the engine bay.

If anyone knows a trick to remove the oil filter cap, please let me know!

Did you ever figure this out? I'm due for a first oil & filter change soon.

I have a 2013 Porsche Cayenne Base (6-speed) with 3.6L V6 engine. I change the oil myself. Here is how I remove the oil filter. I hope this helps with your problem. Let me know if it works for you.

Remove the old oil filter by loosening the bottom plastic holder with a 36 mm wrench that is attached to a long extension and inch ratchet. When it starts turning easily, stop, put the wrench aside and loosen it by hand. When it is off, take it out not through the bottom (there is no room there) but across towards the back. This requires both hands, right hand to hold the plug upright and move it to the left and left hand to reach from back and bring it out. Whoever designed the location of this oil filter must have some Neanderthal genes.
