Part numbers needed near restraining cable

Recommended Posts

2000 Boxster Tiptronic with ~92k miles. I have a small oil leak that I was chasing down as is seen in the attached images.

For image reference, see engine oil sump at far left of picture, restraining cable (98633118101), and then oil drip basically in between the two cables. The first photo is taken underneath the car looking directly up, front of the car is on the left, rear on the right. Second photo with a slightly different perspective. Third photo aimed directly at the now broken bolt.

I thought initially that the leak was originating from the gap between parts A and B so I tried to tighten the Bolt (circled), but it snapped. I applied almost no torque to it, it spun slightly then snapped. Not sure if this is normal, but it sure seemed loose.

Upon further inspection it smells like the oil leak is ATF, not engine oil, and the leak may be originating near the torque converter.

I need help identifying parts A and B and the associated bolt so that I can replace it. I appreciate any help you guys can provide!

Thanks for the feedback - I didn't think about using Sunset as a resource like that. I believe I correctly identified the bolts as 999-385-004-01 Bolt for Engine Crankcase Flywheel side, Micro-encapsulated type, 6 x 35 mm.

The leak was originating from the transmission. I recently rebuilt it and the front seal was leaking.

Rebuilt with a friend who is much more knowledgeable than me, thankfully. Sent some parts off for rebuild like the TC and valve body. All seals were replaced that came in the master rebuild kit from ZF. This particular seal is at the end of what I call a plunger (I'm sure that's not the correct name), but behind the seal is a metal disc and behind that is a spring that provides compression. The spring and seal were both replaced. Hoping to have the trans back in this weekend.
