These instructions will explain the process for removal of the PDK2 module for the Porsche 992 chassis. PDK2 Tuning requires removal of the PDK2 module to be sent into M-Engineering. The location of the PDK2 module is under the carpet of the rear left seat.
Difficulty: 2 out of 10, takes approximately 15 to 20 minutes.
Disclaimer: You accept responsibility and risks of any tunes and added features by M-Engineering. If you are not the end user of the car, you will be solely responsible for notifying the purchaser and/or customer they also accept the responsibility and risks of these and M-Engineering is not liable. M-Engineering is also not liable for voided warranties due to installation of our products.
Follow the below instructions at your own risk. We are not responsible for damages. If you don’t feel comfortable removing the module on your own take it to a shop!
When the PDK2 module is removed from your car DO NOT START YOUR VEHICLE OR KEY-ON. You will need to make sure your car is parked and in a position where you don’t need to move it until you’ve reinstalled it.

Step 1: Working Space and Protection
Fold in the driver and passenger seat and move them all the way forward. This will give you the most room to work. Using masking tape, protect the arm rest AND the leather that meet the back seat shelf.
Step 2: Remove Lumbar Pads
Now remove the lumbar pads on both sides. They are velcro’d to the rear carpet. Simply pull the lumbar support pads towards the front of the car until the velcro becomes unattached and then pull upward.
Step 3: Remove Seat Belt Receptacles
Pull the seat belt receptacle covers away from the base of the buckle insert. You may need to tug in a few different directions to massage them out of place. Just take your time and be gentle yet firm. Once the covers are removed, you can use your 16mm socket to unbolt the receptacles from the chassis. You will need to do this to both sides. The receptacles will stay in the car as there is a cable connecting them. We are simply unbolting them so they have some movement.
REMOVAL UPDATE: At this step, you can unplug the seatbelt electronics and remove the belt receptacles completely. This actually makes the next step4 a bit easier when you’re trying to remove the full leather seat bottom.
Step 4: Seat Bottom Removal
This step makes it obvious why we used masking tape to cover the leather in Step 1. There are some “sharp” pieces on the bottom of the seat cushion as well as some staples. You will need to use some force to push the cushion upwards. Be gentle and firm and it will pop out of place. You can noodle the seat belt receptacles out of place to weave through the cushion. When pulling the cushion out of the car be mindful that it doesn’t touch anything and scratch your interior!
Step 5: Removal of PDK2 Module
The PDK2 module is located on the driver (left hand) side under the carpet. You will need to simply pull away the carpet to view the module. There are 3x T30 Torx bolts holding down the module. Remove these three bolts and then you can move the module in a position to where you can unplug the harness.
The PDK2 module has a plastic case that you can remove easily. Please remove this before shipping.
Step 6: Mail us the PDK Module
Send us the PDK Module. MAKE SURE TO INCLUDE YOUR CONTACT INFORMATION AND RETURN ADDRESS AS WELL AS ANY NOTES FOR US. We will need to know things like your mods/mapping you are running on the car. Payment must be made before we can send the PDK2 module back to you. We always use next-day air return shipping in the lower 48 unless otherwise noted.
Send the PDK2 to this address:
M-ENGINEERING 3460 NW 27th Avenue Unit D7 Pompano Beach, FL 33069
Reinstallation is reverse of install. Enjoy!
It may take a few miles of regular gentle driving for the clutches and points in the transmission to “relearn” after flashing. Features like “no creep” will become active after this time as well. We recommend 5 miles of this driving before going all-out.
If you accidentally keyed the car on while the PDK module was out of the car, you may get a warning message on the dashboard and the transmission stuck in P. Using M-Tuner, perform a “Clear Faults” and the message will go away and you can safely drive.
