Something's Not Right with this Picture


Recommended Posts

1998 Boxster, stock 2.5L engine, 5-speed, 17,000 miles.

I was poking around the engine compartment searching for vacuum leaks when I noticed something did not "look right" near the throttle body.

Here is a photo of the area in question, circled in red:

Does anyone know what part got chewed up or is broken or missing or have a good photo of what this should look like? The car runs fine, but this is obviously not right.

Regards, Maurice.

Looks like the (engine side) accelerator cable and grommet needs replacing.

The part number for that cable is 986.423.229.04 and the grommet is 986.423.331.00.

If by chance the accelerator cable is undamaged then you just need to replace the grommet. But the cable will need to come off for that.

Thanks Loren, much appreciated.

Loren,

The pedal side cable on my car is not attached to the pedal, it is just resting against it. Do you know the part number of the peice or grommet that is supposed to be there? It's a 2000 2.7

Sean

If its a 2000 2.7 it should be an egas model?

It is, but the gas pedal isn't connected to the cable that comes from the floor.
