Ride Height Sensor - Wiring Harness

Recommended Posts

When my air spring blew, it took out the ride height sensor (pn 955 341 075 00) as well as the connector off of the end of the wiring harness. I have the sensor, but the wiring harness I ordered (955-612-322-00) is not the correct harness. From the illustrations in PET its hard to determine what other part number it could even be. Please help.

Thanks,

Cody

Often there is a part number on the old unit. Porsche or VW should be able to make a repair connector for you as they have a kit made for this purpose.

I just started into the job to see if I could follow the routing and it looks like it's part of the main wiring harness that comes around the back of the engine. Of course I manage to damage the only part in the suspension area that's NOT covered by the $100 suspension sub-harness, but rather the $10,000 main harness.

Luckily I found a piece of the shattered connector that's marked "amp 1-967618-1", which was enough to trace it to the manufacturer (who sells them 2,200 pieces at a time), who in turn sent me to a great site to search for electrical components (www.sourceesb.com), where I was able to find smaller distributors. I went with www.onlinecomponents.com and ordered 5 pieces for $2.89 each, and they were even in stock. Now I just need to find the small pins Porsche uses and I should be good to go. I only need one piece but I'm going to make a couple more in case anyone else needs one.

You should be able to buy the wiring at your local OPC. I know VW does sell the individual male/female wiring connectors with a small length of wire attached.

Well I hope you're right, but the guys at Suncoast Porsche also sell VW parts and they couldn't help me with anything. Of course they also sent me the wrong harness...

No go at my local VW dealer either, the parts guy checked for an hour.

I feel like I should be talking to the service guys or something because all the parts guys can do is look at pictures and parts lists.

I have PET 7.2 and it's definitely lacking when it comes to electrical components

Also FYI, I found the pins and seals I need to complete the connectors, so I'll build my own tomorrow and will have 5 extras in case anyone needs one. I overpaid for shipping (pins shipped separately from a different depot, 2 day UPS ($20) charged for each), so I have a little over $10 into each one, but it beats buying a full harness.

Odd... my local VW dealer stocks various sized pins as I've bought from them several times over the years. Sometimes it just takes the right parts person to find the solution. But it sounds like you have it sorted.
