Resetting brake fluid service date

Post by Boxster convert » Thu Jan 21, 2016 2:45 pm

Just had this done by local firm but can't seem to change the setting in the on board display. Must this be done by dealer or have I missed something? Any advice welcome!

They should have done this when they changed the fluid, take it back and get them to do it.

Thanks for these links everyone. It seem that the trip meter button is an essential part of the change, linked to the BC button which helps call up the relevant service interval that need to be reset.
Local PTA helped by finding an on-line link that resolved the matter.
