Looking for 2017-2019 Cayman owners, manual transmission. I have a 2019, 2,000 miles and just ran into a problem. Backed the car out of the garage and here was a puddle of yellow brake fluid to the right of the left front wheel. Traced it to a loose return hose to the master clutch cylinder, coming off the brake fluid reservoir. Car was trucked from Prescott to Phoenix. Dealer said for some reason the hose came loose. They pushed it back on. That was the fix. I found a Porsche technical bulletin, SB-10055359-4799, WE04, titled "Replacing the Return Line for Clutch Master Cylinder" for 2013 Boxsters, and even though this bulletin stated that this issue was directed at brake fluid leaks at the hose connection to the reservoir, the dealer said the WE04 problem was not the same as mine. So to you other Cayman owners with manual trans, have you had this problem? Am I the only owner of a Cayman in the world where the hose came loose? There is no clamp on the hose, the male stub coming off the reservoir is ribbed, but the hose slides off and on quite easily. Quite frustrating. If the dealer cannot explain why it fell off, do I risk going more than 3-4 miles from home and getting stuck with no brake fluid or a clutch that will not operate? Thanks for any help!
