Where these bearing balls came from?

Recommended Posts

About a month or so ago I found these bearing balls outside my 05C2S rear spoiler. See first pic. I thought some jealous person put them there back then. But now after reading all the posts about issues with these 05C2S and my gear not changing issue, I'm thinking these came from the engine compartment. I'll take my car to the mechanic this coming Monday to get the gears checked and I can ask him about these bearing balls then as well. But I just thought maybe some of you might be able to tell me where these bearing balls go?

One ball has markings of two lines in the middle with a letter D like this ====D====D

Three balls have markings of an I then three Os like this I O O O I O O O

One ball has markings of two lines in the middle with a symbol that looks like @ with ai like this ====@ai====@ai

Any thoughts? Maybe I'm just being paranoid! :jump:

Not sure where your bearings came from but considering the size I seriously doubt they came from your engine or transmission, especially if they are operating normally. Also, considering the weight of the bearing, I don't see how it could travel upwards and deposit itself in the louvers of the engine lid. My guess is someone is having a bit of fun at your expense.

Definitely someone having fun at your expense. They are not Porsche issue and they were placed there by someone with some knowledge of these cars due to the fact they're large enough not to fall through the grill. Don't think it would do any damage to your car and would sure drive you nuts until you found it. Looks like slingshot ammo to me. I hope this thread doesn't give anyone ideas. Could become an epidemic.

I agree with the other comments.... never seen anything like that on a p-car before. Are they metal? Check them with a magnet just out of curiosity.

These look to me to be of ALIEN origin! Any loss of memory lately or pain in the abdominal area?
