Part number help please

Recommended Posts

Trying to find a part number for the J nuts/speednuts used to in securing the rear lower valence side panels.

These are attached to the upper bodywork and take the screws to secure the lower side panels.

I think the number is 99950704109. PET doesn't give any part reference on the diagrams that refer to this area. Ordinary 'full' speed nuts don't allow the panels to sit properly.

TIA.

Ah, those aren't quite the same thing. The ones I want are more of a 'J' in section, rather than a full 'U'. I bought some ones like that but the full 'U' section doesn't allow the rubber seal to sit properly. I've looked at cutting the seal away slightly but that would leave some very thin bits left.

The ones I am after are cut away on the one side.

Thanks for looking though Matthew.

Are you putting them on the right way round?

Yes!

Had a rummage in my garage - here is one, stamped 4,8

My last picture shows the orientation - the smaller 'J' part needs to be on the underside of the lip on the rear bodywork.

I still think the part number is 99950704109.

I get them from Silverstone OPC no problem. Part number on PET is 99950704109 as you have stated. The screw passes through the small part of the clip first regardless of the clip orientation.  Here are some assembly sketches I prepared a while ago.

Just search "j nuts". You need to know the right size.

Have ordered some, though I have a vague recollection of going around this loop previously and finding the generic ones aren't quite the right thing. We'll see.

Flat ones are available too. I have some for some long forgotten reason :unsure:

I replaced all of my clips with stainless steel nuts and bolts - a bit fiddly to fit (particularly when I flooded the area with dinitrol when fitting) but worked really well.

Just wasn't happy with the rust possibilities of the j clips!

You'll end up getting them from Porsche if you want it done properly. Those generic ones are just that...generic.

Bigger things in the world to be concerned about though I guess lol

Just received a 'test' pack - they are not the same thing at all, far too big.

Shall order some from my local OPC.

The correct items from Porsche are a much lower profile. They also have a better coating that helps against corrosion. 

It's a good idea to dIp the clip screw and washer in dinatrol before fitting.
