I found a coolant leak coming from a hose that attaches to a part that is bolted to the engine directly below the alternator. I have searched the PET and Auto Atlanta's Porsche Factory diagram and called Sun Coast Porsche in FL. and Pelican to no avail. The two retailer both told me that Porsche's parts diagram isn't at all helpful in finding small hoses and that I would need to get a part number. The hose uses clamps that would have to be cut off to replace. 

Does anyone have a part number for the hose and/or what the part that the hose attaches to so that I can narrow down my search?

I have a 1999 C2 coupe with manual transmission.  

Thanks in advance for any assistance. Hose Leak.JPG

Also be prepared to replace Part 18....the hose connector.  With age and heat those break easily.  You can get a brass hose bib and SS worm clamps from the hardware store that will fit and be done with that problem forever.

Thanks Ahsai for the link. I have ordered parts from Auto Atlanta before and found them to be very helpful and I've ordered the part already. Thanks also to DBJoe996 I will surely use SS clamps. Any idea what that part is under the alternator that the hose connects to, just curious.

Pease Out.

Just be very careful with that part...it's ridiculously expensive, like $400-500.
