Help - 996 Caliper Seals

Recommended Posts

:( :(

If anyone can help me with this, I really need it.

I have a 99' 996 and just had the calipers powder coated. In the process, I removed the pistons and inner seals. I no longer have them.

I didn't think this was a big deal because I had teh "Re-build Kit's" coming in the mail from Sunset Porsche.

It apparently is a BID DEAL ... because the rebuild kits are only the outer dust covers. They don't include the inner seals.

The parts I have are:





Again, these are only the outer (dust cover) seals.

I have also called Suncoast Porsche in Florida and they referred me to Racetechnoligies.com (Brembo rep). They said they didn't have them because they were an OEM part (different size pistons).

If anyone knows where I can get the inner seals please let me know...

In my younger days I use to rebuild brake calipers, but not on a Porsche. You would buy a kit. It had a seal that went inside the caliper piston bore, and a dust boot. All I see on the Porsche list now that you mention it, are dust boots. They are listed as a repair kit so I always assumed it included the seal.

I would have to ask Peter if he knows of a source for just the seals. I doubt it because if there is a problem with a caliper then the dealer just replaces it with a new one.

I was finally able to find the seals that I needed. :) :) :) :)

I have to say a big THANK YOU to George @ AKKURAT in Menlo Park.

After talking with Porsche, then Race Technoligies (Bremo Rep) and finally George @ AKKURAT I was able to get everything back together and the newly painted calipers look great!!!

First, I strongly recommend that you don't repeat what I did and attempt to re-build your stock calipers. If for some reason you do... call George @ http://www.akkuratpgi.com/main.php before you start and make sure that you get the parts.

Has Akkurat closed down...? Their website doesn't seem to work anymore - even Google's cache (which was retrieved on July 15th 2005) doesn't work...



Nevermind, I saw in another thread that they have indeed closed down.
