Is the manifold cover really not a seperate part - Melted the porsche

Recommended Posts

I did a stupid thing - I was changing the sparkplugs and I left my halagon light in the engine bay and it tipped over. It melted the Porsche writing on what I belive the manifold cover. I did some part searchng and everyting seems to indicate the whole manifold is a single $500 part. I am hoping someone can tell me I am wrong.

-Picture attachesd is before I put light on it.. it is the paint on the right side silver section where the porsche writing is where I did the damage. it is totally functional just looks ugly

Sorry to hear about that. Unfortunately a good friend of mine did something very similar to his 09 Cayenne and I helped him trade it out. I want to say it was just under $600 at the dealer here in Minneapolis, I believe they called it an engine cover. I remember the very front did come off but am pretty sure the rest was one piece. He did his damage after only three months of ownership.

Also, I can vouch for the Snap on LED shop light. Very bright and cool to the touch: http://www.amazon.com/Snap-92164-25-LED-Rechargeable-Angle/dp/B000QTOQ32

That is that the parts diagram is telling me too.. the part by the oil fill is just a cover, the reset appears to be a one piece manifold.

For $500-$600 I will at least attempt to re-paint it. I might be able to strip the paint off and re-paint.... It was mostly that the paint bubbled however off course where it fell was on the P and o and the raised part of letters got a little soft..
