05 CTT driver side Pressure Pipe

Recommended Posts

05 CTT. Anyone experienced removing the pressure pipe on the driver side? Mine is leaking where the pressure pipe & the turbo connects. There are a lot of play when I wiggled the pressure pipe. Any advice on removing is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Here is a video what I am talking about.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zdlar_NLx5I

Remove: pull the wire clip backwards

pull the pressure pipe out of the connector

remove O-ring

wipe off the oil residues and clean up

replace O-ring

install the pipe and clip

It is normal that some play is observable, the pipe is claped by the pressure, same system is used on the cooling water hoses and radiator connections on later 996.

Correction, it should be "clamped". It would also be useful to identify the cause of the excess oil.

First of all thank you for the reply.

I'm not sure about the cause of the oil. All I can see is that the oil come out b/w the pressure pipe and turbo being clamped. Are there supposed to be oil in these pipes? If not is the turbo blowing oil? If so...is this a sign the turbo is about to fail?

From the video I posted, do you think its just the O ring need to be replaced? The pipe/hose running to the IC have not leak. Again thank you.

Oil leak at driver side inter cooler pipe is common. There are other threads on the topic. A new (green) gasket will fix the leak. I replaced both driver and passenger side gaskets since it's 8-9 years old. Loosen the locking clip ring on the outer pipe and the inner pipe will come out. Access to passenger side pipes is easier. Unlike O ring, these silicone gaskets will fit in much easier.

Thank you for the how to instructions. Would you have the part number for the (green) gasket? Is this something Porsche dealer carried?
