Transmission bolts 1997 base Boxster 5 speed manual transmission

Recommended Posts

I have a 1997 Base Boxster with 5 speed manual transmission.   When removing the bolts I put them thru holes on a piece of cardboard on a clock face representing the back housing of the engine.  When I reinstalled the transmission I used the 101 Boxster project book as a guide.  On page 138 Fig4 it shows the bolt pattern and list the bolt sizes and locations.  Instead of having the 8 bolts shown in the picture I only had 7.   I did not loose any bolts because each place on the cardboard template had a bolt I removed.  Bolts D&G in the 101 projects book are the same.  So I assumed that a bolt was missing when I removed the transmission.  So I ordered a new bolt for the 1 that was missing.  I know I removed a bolt from the D location from the 101 Project book but after ordering the missing bolt G I'm wondering if the G bolt actually belongs in my 1997 Boxster with the 5 speed manual transmission.

Oldish thread but adding to it for moral support of others who may also have this question.

My 1998 2.5l 5speed was also "missing" a bolt, lower right hand side just above the stud with the nut. Not sure if that's Wayne's D or G. 

There is a hole in the bellhousing rim and corresponding threaded hole in the engine case, but the surface corrosion of the case threads suggests there was never a bolt in there.

Porsche saved a few pennies.
