1998 manual transmission refresh!

 

A bit of info:

I am in the process of doing the ever-daunting swap for my 2.5 1997 Boxster w/ tiptronic, for the 5spd manual transmission out of a 3.2 1998 Boxster.

 

My question is: I am looking at the guide sleeve assembly in the transmission. Its the sleeve that the throwout bearing slides on to. Porsche charges $79.34 (on sale) for a new one (mfg# 012141180B). I'm hoping to save $80 by cleaning up and reusing the current one(as long as its not damaged) but, replacing the seal. Does anyone know the part # for the rear round rubber seal that comes with the assembly brand new? And, is there anything else recommended I replace from the assembly if I use the old sleeve?

 

TIA

I see. Now my problem is on sunset the site says this part does NOT fit my boxster. Meanwhile, on ecs it says it does...

 

What do you think?

I think that Sunset, being both a very reputable Porsche parts dealer, and a board sponsor; while ECS is neither.  i looked up the part number you gave me, but Sunset can run your VIN and tell you exactly what part should be in the car.

You should check by your actual VIN.  Even using your VIN on the Sunset or other websites sometimes isn't 100% for filtering results BUT you will notice when you "check out" and pay at Sunset it asks for the VIN for the vehicle the parts will go on.  Sunset guarantees fitment and the part as long as you provide the VIN which they will cross-check for online orders before sending it out.

 

I think you should call Sunset Porsche via phone, give them your VIN.  Or place the order online but be sure to provide your VIN to them.

 

In general I trust ECS way less than Sunset.  But still always use your VIN to be 100% sure.
