Do you have the part number for the engine air cleaner element for an '05 3.8 997S? Thanks.

For MY05 997-1 S (only)

996.110.131.52 air cleaner -- US MSRP $40.64

Thanks! Seeing that it's a 996 part no., would the instructions for removing the 997 3.8 air cleaner housing posted in the Mar 15, 2009 DIY 3.8 Air Cleaner change forum still apply? Mine looks exactly the same as the posting's illustrations http://www.renntech.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=8459.

To digress a bit, I noticed a "black box" with a filler cap just above the inlet duct, which can also be seen in the instruction's illustration. The cap is inscribed "Only hydraulic oil Pentosin CHF 11 S". Is this the filler for the clutch fluid, and is the nipple on top of the box the bleeder valve?

Yes, that DIY should be fine for a 3.8.

The pump with the "Pentosin only" is the power steering.

On non-tubro cars the clutch shares brake fluid from the (front) brake fluid reservoir.

Ah. So THAT's why I couldn't find anything in the maintenance schedules on topping off the clutch fluid.
