Replacing the rear male adapter for brake pad sensor and abs wheel speed sensor

Recommended Posts

1998 Boxster, manual 5 speed, US model

Have brake wear dashboard light on, replaced all brake pads and all pad sensors. Noticed that on the rear tires both male adapters where the brake pad sensors and the abs wheel speed sensors male female adapters plug in, are ripped and broken. Looking for the part number(s) for the black cable plus the male adapter coming from the trunk into the wheel box, in which the replacement brake pad sensors plug in. It is a male adapter with a clamp to connect the upper cable part from the trunk and the lower replacement brake pad sensors. It also connects the abs sensor, and it is attached over one screw on the body. Wear&tear have this adapter/clamp split and exposing the contacts. I can find all lower sensor parts, but so far I am unable to find the official name or part id number for the upper adapter part. I believe this is causing me the brake wear light, as pads and sensors have all been replaced.

Welcome to RennTech :welcomeani:

Have you tried looking the car up on board sponsor Sunset Porsche's parts website? They have the entire Porsche parts system diagrams on line.

I have checked Sunset, unfortunately the electric connector part doesn't show as component of the brake system, the inner electric system, or the ABS system. It has to be a maintenance part as it is exposed to driving vibration, dust, and humidity and connects to two vital systems to the tires, the brake sensors and the abs speed sensor.

Then give them a call, it may be part of the wiring harness that only comes with that section of the harness.
