996 Turbo Front Splitter Screw

Recommended Posts

I've been scouring all the parts diagrams I can find, but I can't figure out what the appropriate screw / mounting hardware is for the front splitter/spoiler/lip (http://www.sonnenporscheoemparts.com/auto-parts/2002/porsche/911/turbo-trim/3-6l-h6-gas-engine/body-cat/bumper-and-components-front-scat #12). There are two screws in the wheel liner and I'm missing one (see pic)

 

Is it this? http://www.sonnenporscheoemparts.com/porsche/911/99907306102/2002-year/turbo-trim/3-6l-h6-gas-engine/body-cat/structural-components-and-rails-scat/?part_name=rubber-strip-screw&recommended=1

Looks like you are missing some pieces. What year? Also, can you zoom out in your picture? What does the other side look like?

Hmm, on the other side of my car it's a screw. I'll compare to my friend's 996 TT as well.

The item I was thinking of looks like this:

 

fender-liner-rivet-subaru-59130aa000-10p

 

The one on the other side may be like this:

 

2354B8AD-EEF4-48D6-AFC6-7BD4E252709E-2.j

Both are variations on a theme and are considered plastic rivets.

The parts department ended up giving me a "generic" philips head screw that looks self tapping since the fastener isn't included in any diagrams. They showed me a few 996TTs on the lot that had that screw installed, so I'll give it a shot.

 

I suspect the plastic rivet would work as well. My friend's 996TT has a different fastener on each side, so clearly this is a bit of an unknown.

Looking at my TT, the plastic rivets hold the splitter to the bottom of the front bumper cover.  That hole has a screw with a washer that matches the shape of the hole in the splitter.  Also of note, it appears your wheel liner is cracked...  The heat really makes it brittle over time.. .I've replaced both my front liners.  it should fit behind the edge of the splitter and the hole in the wheel liner should line up with the hole in the splitter.   Hope this helps...
