Long story short. I'm trying to do a clutch job, replace RMS, 60k service, etc to my car.

I've got 1000 other things going on in my life so it's taking forever.

So today I find some time to work on the car and it's time to install the RMS.

When I ordered the parts from Sunset I asked for 00072196992 and Jeff told me

that wasn't the right tool, it was an insert for a GT3 or something. He said he was 90%

sure that 0007219690 was the correct tool and it came with the most recent insert.

So I start to take the tool apart to get ready to install the seal, and of course the insert

has no recess for the green sleeve. I've just paid $242.44 for an obsolete tool.

So I email Jeff and ask him to see what he can find out and I get this.

The 00072196992 is 216.53 and a week away to order in. Now that we know what you have doesn't come with that new insert then you will have to get the 9699/2 tool also. Porsche has 27 of the early tool body and insert together left to sell. Then when the updated tool was needed they felt they would lose money by taking the older insert out and putting a new one in that they had to make up for the newest seal. It would be nice if they combined them and came up with a reasonable price. I'm sorry that didn't happen.

If that's right it puts the current RMS tool at $458.97

This is a 2 piece tool that pushes a seal 13mm (that they screwed up to begin with)!

I think I could have one spun out of gold for less!

This car is becoming a serious hairshirt.

I like the car but if Porsche expects me to pay triple or quintuple for everything associated with it because "well, it's a Porsche, what'd ya expect"

then I think this will be the last Porsche I own.

I'm gonna get the thing running and trade it off for a nice Lotus or something.

OK I feel a little better now. :D

Ha-ha-ha! you complain? Try Cayenne where 80% of parts are VW/Audi and are sold by Porsche for 2x price that you get if you buy from VW directly...

The green sleeve is to protect the inner part of the seal during transportation and handling. You have to remove it before insertion on the crankshaft (you'll see it doesn't fit otherwise).

Your tool should be in two parts. If the inner part fits the seal without the green sleeve, you then probably have what you're looking for. Remember not to touch the inner seal with you fingers.
