GT3 Bumper Install


Recommended Posts

I recently purchased a primed GT3 Bumper Part Number: 996.505.980.03 G2X for my 98 Boxster.

When dry fitting the bumper prior to sending out for painting I noticed a few missing screws and attachment parts. I'm looking for the PET diagram to confirm missing parts and any needed additional parts for the 3rd radiator.

I am also am looking for any recommendations on where to purchase the third radiator.

Thanks in advance!

Here is the parts list for the GT3 Mark 1 front bumper. The same parts work regardless of whether you put it on a GT3, 996, or 986.

Carnewal.com still has the 3rd radiator kit on their site - though with the poor value of the dollar you want to compare the individual parts prices at Sunset Imports (Porsche Parts at Dealer Cost).

The complete parts list is in my DIY article here. Please have them double check the part numbers as some may have changes or been updated.

Can you post what parts you were specifically missing (not including anything for the 3rd radiator).

I have the same bumper but won't be mounting this until the end of April/May. Since I have a lot of time I can source any missing parts while I watch the snow fly!

Also, if you could post pics of the bumper mounted that would be great!

Loren - Thanks for posting the PET diagram. How does one get access to these?

Radiator is the same number as your DYI

Top and Bottom brackets are too.

Hoses increase version numbers to:

996-106-666-55 (was 52)

996-106-665-57 (was 55)

Air Duct was the same

All hardware came in unmarked bags

It did come with a plastic bumper insert that I believe is not needed for my gt3 mk1 bumper

I think all will be fine.

Mk2 cars have different air ducts.

Will they fit on a mk1 car? probably

Let us know what you find...

The parts fit perfectly. Here is a picture of the installation before the new bumper was installed.

And here is a photo after the center radiator was in place and the new bumber installed.

More info can be found HERE at this thread! Thanks for your help Loren!
