Help with this mistery part?

Recommended Posts

hello,

i am about to do a turbo bumper retrofit on my 2003 C2 cab. i did a lot of research already. i bought the bumper primed on craigslist from a guy who ended up not using it since he upgraded to a 997. what i got from the guy was:

- bumper

- three grills

- bumper lip

i also got two parts which i can't seem to figure out what to do with. they are: 996 505 531 01 and 996 575 161 01

any ideas? loren? :) :) thanks in advance.

996.505.531.01 is the retaining strip (item 23 below) (this is the same on both a standard bumper and C4S/TT bumpers)

996.575.161.01 is the (under bumper) air duct (item 10 below)

thanks loren. sounds like i dont need either of these parts since my 996 C2 should already have them and they are the same, right?

Regarding part# 996.575.161.01 (the air duct) do you have any information on what holds this piece in place under the vehicle?

This part is item10 in Loren's second diagram and I see that item9 appears to be just one single screw which presumably is to hold the air duct in place. My question is, is this item9 screw the only thing that secures the air duct? And is this just one single screw? I would have expected that there were at least two screws (one on each side). Any information anyone has on installing this part would be greatly apprecaited.

Thanks!

Item 9 is a "self-tapping screw" , with updated part number N906.487.04. The parts diagram shows that there are nine of these screws needed to hold the front air duct in place.

Hey Maurice, thanks for the respoinse! When I look this part up (see link below) it looks like "Model" is 9 but "Qty" is blank implying it's just 1. Do you see it the same way? I'm looking at the 996.575.161.01 physical part now in my hand and it doesn't look like there are 9 screws that hold it in place (but I could be wrong it's a little torn up).

See item 20 on your diagram (the one I posted is very old and Porsche has undated this diagram).

You will need 9 of these.

I attached a picture of mine (2 actually, one of each side).

Does this sound correct? Trying to be sure I order the right parts and I'm not missing anything.

At the link you provided, the column for "Quantity" is offset a little for some reason. But it definitely says that you need 9 screws of item #20 on the diagram.

Maybe the sections of your part that is chewed up had holes for some of the 9 screws required. The edges on your part are eaten away and the screws do attach along the edges of the part, not further in towards the middle.

Regards, Maurice.

Ya, you're right. I looked closer and the column headings in the table (in my AutoAtlanta link) aren't aligned propertly (might be a browser issue?). At any rate, I believe I have the right information now so thanks to both of you. I ordered the part and the 9 screws (only $.23 each) from Sunset and it was $75 + shipping.

Much appreciated.
