996 New driver part identification

Recommended Posts

Just picked up an 01 996 Carrara and PO had installed a battery tender on the passenger side beside the battery tray but it was no longer functional, so I removed it.  In the same area to the passenger side of the battery compartment there is a flexible clear tube unattached at its distal end originating close to the fuel filler neck.

 

Any idea what the tube is and is it correct for it to be disconnected

There is a clear plastic line that goes from the battery vent to the underside of the car.

Not sure that I remember any others.

Sounds like the item I'm looking at.

 

The car has an aftermarket InterState battery that may not have a vent attachment.

Not good... you need a vent.

Depends on  the battery type.  The old lead/acid batteries needed to be vented.  Thus the clear plastic hose.  The newer AGM type batteries do not have a vent.  My current Duralast AGM battery does not have a vent.

      The key is stuck in the ignition of my 97 986.  Gently added a lubricant and managed to get it to the "off" position however it will not come out.  Disconnected the battery (leaving trunk open).  Any advice regarding repairing this myself?  Read that audi parts could be used.  All advice welcome

      The Retail Parts Price Search feature (for our Contributing Members) has been updated to reflect December 2014 retail pricing for the US. We try to update this on a monthly basis as the price lists come available to us.

      December 2014 the parts price list supports: US: 381,586 parts. That is almost 40,000 more part numbers than the February price list - must be all the new models....

       

      Thanks again to Contributing Member Porschelibrarian for his help in obtaining this list!
