Does anyone know?

Recommended Posts

I am in the middle of a 3.4 996 motor swap into my 98 Boxster and I have to add a wire to the #59 slot in the 88 pin DME plug.

Does anyone know where I can find the female spade that goes into the DME plug?  and also where I can get the insertion tool?

I think I would try the VW repair wire 000.979.009E or 000.979.010E. I used one of these to connect to the Tiptronic plug when I did the (non-eGas) cruise retrofit on my 1998 996, and I think it mightt use the same terminals on the DME. Didn't need an insertion tool. It just clicked in. Sorry I can't tell you which VW wire for sure, but it was about 9 yers ago.


Edit:  Looking at the connector assignment diagrams, I think I might be leading you on a wild goose chase, as the connectors look quite different.  Sorry.

Could you remove one of the pins to show us how it looks? I think they are one of these http://parts.bmwofsouthatlanta.com/showAssembly.aspx?ukey_assembly=251077&ukey_make=972

I found the Bosch part number but only available in UK http://www.cannell.co.uk/Bosch_Technical/efi_techserviceparts.pdf

Page 7 bottom shows the plug insert and page 8 shows the female pins.

Rich ,  I found it thanks to Ashai!


The Bosch numbers on the white internal section for the 88 pin DME plug are 1 928 401 587 and 1 928 403 122.  That part has two numbers on it.

This plug has two different size spade connectors.  The small spade connector is Bosch number 1 284 477 219(JPT AMP substitute 927 774-3).  The large connector is part number 1 284 477 121(JPT AMP sub. 927 775-3).   Thank you for your help, it was very much appreciated.  

I was unable to get a pin out without destroying it.

Thanks,    Bob
