Lost Rubber Cap On Clutch Bleeder Nipple

Recommended Posts

Unfortunately, I lost the little rubber cap on the bleeder nipple for the clutch (the nipple on top of the tranny)

The bleeder is tightened to spec. But the rubber cap has to be ordered from Germany! ETA is end of this month.

Is it safe/OK to drive around with this off for 2-3 weeks? I guess as long as I keep the area clean, I'm OK, right? :(

Anybody know of something suitable to cover this? (some other part from some other company that is the same size, maybe??)

I did not know you could buy just the rubber cap - thought Porsche would make you buy a new cylinder. Do you have the part number?

I have had other cars that did not have a cap on the cylinder or the brakes. I would not worry about it. A large auto parts place that has the "help" packages of odd parts might have a selection of rubber bleed nipple caps.
