Deformation Element

Recommended Posts

Loren, Can you get me a part number for the deformation element as seen in circle 3-3 of the attached pdf file?

Also, Can you get a part number for the trim retention clips (triangular in shape) for the D-Pillar trim.

Is there any special type of sealant (Porsche recommended) that should be used to reseal the deformation element?

2004 Cayenne S

Many thanks!

I do not know what the sealing material is (and the parts list does not say) but I suspect an RTV type silicone for weatherproofing and still staying soft in the winter.

Porsche uses this same sealant on all their cars - body parts.

When the new element arrived it already had a bead of sealant applied to it. Working on a video tutorial of the pneumatic spring replacement and I'll include a closeup of the sealant. Quite easy change out once you get over the fear of killing the car.
