My mechanic tells me I have a serious oil leak at the timing cover due to bolts heads popped off. It's a $3-$4k repair. I know this was an issue with Gen1 Cayennes using magnesium bolts on an aluminum cover. Has anyone experienced this and gotten relief from Porsche? Mine is a 2013 GTS.

There is a recall out there for this. Look up the recall status of this car via the VIN and see. And also call the dealership.

My 2011 S bolts were placed preventatively under the recall, way out of warranty. I think you should be coevered...🤞🤞
