Melted coil pack connector PLEASE HELP!

Recommended Posts

Hello, I am new to site and have a question. Well I was on my way to work when my car started misfiring. I drove it to kmd tuning here in Nj. I thought it was a coil pack and my car is due for 60000 mile service anyway so I wasn't too worry. When they check the car they find one of the coil pack connectors is melted. We have checked everywhere trying to find connector and have had no luck. Dealer wants to sell me entire wire harness.

Has anyone dealt with this before? Is there a connector from other car that works? Porsche service manager mentioned BMW but couldn't remember part number or car it came from.

If someone could help me I would greatly appreciate it...

I bought two similar connectors for my car, one for the knock sensor and the other for a cam position sensor.

They are Bosch parts and you can buy them brand new.

They need to be soldered and will be difficult to do with the engine in the car, but it is possible, probably by removing the mufflers and brackets, heat shields, etc.

Here's the part number for a 996 connector for a spark plug. I'm pretty certain it is the same for the 997 since they use the same coil pack..

Usually dealers have a parts bin called a "tech connector box" in their service bay or parts dept with all sorts of these types of connectors in them. I'm surprised they didn't mention that.

Here are a couple places to purchase... or I'm sure a Porsche dealer has one somewhere they an transfer/sell to your local dealer.

Here's what i could find, hope it's the right stuff.

- 999 650 052 12 connector 3 per housing

- 999 704 161 40 gasket 3 per housing

- 996 607 401 00 rubber sleeve 1 (not sure if you need this, I would order one)

- 996 607 402 00 rubber sleeve 1 (not sure if you need this, I would order one)

When I bought mine on ebay it came with all the stuff I needed.
