Blow-out of front right radiator clip-plug_better solution?

Recommended Posts

I searched for past comments on this, couldn't see any but maybe mised them somewhere.

This is 01 Turbo but the part is probably same on reg 996......the Radiator 10D clip--plug is #996-106-545-71.

In hot-hard engine use they have been known to blow out......in my case, at the track.....not good.

Talking w/others, they have heard of a better, more permanant fixe than just replacement of the OE clip.

Can anyone share any info or point me in the right direction?.....TIA.

I'll throw this over on the 996 board also, if I may.

Just for your info. I have found, the hard way, there are 6 different sizes of clips on the TT . The numbers are 996-106-802-10 (-11,-12,-15,-16,-17) depending of the location on the car. Per example the -11 is a little smaller than the -10 ???? But the -12 is a lot bigger....I've made a mistake between two sizes (-10 and -11) and the clip did not hold properly.... Also i've purchase new ones and the clipping action was more firmed....In your case we are talking about -15 and -17, hope they were not misplaced...

Loren.....I'll see if there is a way to check function of that bleeder.......assume you are talking about up-top at the fill cap?

JP.....thanks for 'clip variety' info.

Your part numbers are dif than the one part number I supplied, so I assume mine must be the cap & appropriate clip combo?

I've never held one of these buggers in my hand........assume there is a removable cap of sorts that the (correct) clip holds in place?

Those clips look exactly like the turbo hose clips; I have blown them loose in the past. The correction was that you had to be very meticulous in lining up the hoses when you clicked them in.

jpflip, the later on 996 Carrera use also those clips but have a different size, perhaps there is a misunderstanding in this matter.

Thanks for mentioning. It is, in fact, a possibility!
