Haha well these little mysteries are always fun!


I did post elsewhere, but hey, everyone can play!


Mystery pipe clips, can't find on PET, and need ordering as they have split... there is one clip in PET that does not included in the image, not numbered, and may be "A" but unsure. Believe me I have been working my eyes out studying PET but I don't have any definitive info on anything


Any ideas?


I win the prize! Well I don't, you make me spend the money...


Here goes! A and B are critical. C not a problem.


Have fun and win for me!

I believe these are what you need:


A = 999-591-922-40 Support -- US MSRP $4.55 each Looks different! http://www.rosepassion.com/en/cat/piece/P70060

B = 996-355-545-00 Support -- US MSRP $2.75 each Same here! http://www.rosepassion.com/en/cat/porsche-996-turbo-2001-996-turbo-gt2-coupe-manual-gearbox-6-speed/M568/clutch-and-engine-flywheel/clutch/B125/clutch-control-clutch-master-cylinder-clutch-piping/I3199/support/P58851

C= 996-355-543-00 Support -- US MSRP $5.33 each Different! http://www.autoatlanta.com/Porsche-Line-Holder-Parts-PN-G99635554300.html


Dammit! But thanks for the attempt to help out!

The clips don't have any separate screw to attach to the body, they are screwed on themselves (rotated in their entirety).


Today I went to Porsche and it appears that their PET is no better than mine.


Could not find the clips, also mentioned that there is a "missing" bearing for the gearbox on my PET and sure enough it was missing on theirs too...

I certainly would but it seems I am drawing a blank. In fact I may order a couple of clips, supports, whatever they are called, one blindly (no image) and another will need modification to work. If either or both work out, I will post. In the meantime plan B involves P clips and gripper washers or the same plastic nuts as used to retain the underbody cover panels, to achieve the same result. Not ideal but better than reusing broken clips. Frustrating.

When I took my engine out for coolant pipe welding I have found many of those retaining bracket at fault. Lines coming out and rubbing on structure or adjacent coolant pipe etc etc...I have used over 70 tie wrap to secure everything in the engine compartment, all the sense lines attachment, all the underside coolant pipes etc. I can tell you I got no rattle on this car ;-)
