Fuel line rubbing on coolant reservoir, what am I missing here? Need advice/part number.


Recommended Posts

I have a 2002 C4S and I noticed that my fuel line that goes to the fuel rail is rubbing on the coolant tank. See picture, circled in red. This is obviously not supposed to happen. Is there a clip that is supposed to attach to the coolant tank to prevent the fuel line from rubbing? I looked through the Porsche catalog and can't find one. My motor has been removed in the past and I am assuming that the mechanic doing it wasn't particularly careful and didn't put a clip or bracket back in. At this point if I can't get the correct clip then I can come up with other solutions, such as trimming the tab on the coolant tank that is actually rubbing ( not sure why the tab is there in the first place) or fabricating something. However, I would prefer to use a Porsche part if possible. Any advice from the experts is appreciated.

So I did a bit more digging and found a picture of a used tank with this bracket (circled in red). However, I can't find the bracket in the Porsche catalog. Anyone know the part number?

Just an update, I've asked FCP Euro to look into this and they told me that they can't find a part number either. Curious if anyone here has access to a dealer parts lookup software. Not sure if that is any more comprehensive or not.

Thanks guys. I doubt any junk yard will want to sell just this bracket, and I am not going to pay $50 or more for a used coolant tank just to get this bracket. This is not a critical component, so I'll rig something up with zipties for now.

I just wanted to provide an update for those that may run into this thread in the future. I can't find the part number for this bracket, and it doesn't seem like the Porsche dealer can either (perhaps someone here is better than my local dealer). However, I did a bit of a hack job using a BMW part # 11537555977. See the pictures below, it is pretty obvious what I did. This bracket already comes with 1 hole and I drilled another one then I drilled a hole in the little bracket coming off the coolant tank. It doesn't look pretty, but looks perfectly functional and will serve the purpose.
