Maurice, thanks for adding your authority to this discussion. I’ve had my 1995 993 for a year and will definitely look into this. Is it worth flagging this up on the PCGB forum 993 page.

Despite being told by my local OPC that the amended looms were installed from Jan' 96 onwards I decided to check for myself, finally got round to doing it on Sunday.

Opening the fuse box up the loom looks all OK, and the number is 993.607.016.14, but what I can't see is which ones are OK. As I understand it the ones mentioned aren't UK model related?

Can anyone confirm, thanks?

acme - you're likely to be fine methinks (check the technical service booklet at page 12 here: https://members.rennlist.com/pcaracing/files/harness/NA_Harness_TSB.pdf)

Mine is number 3 on that list: 993.607.016.04. Going into OPC Swindon on Monday morning for the replacement wiring loom.

From this thread on rennlist it says that looms marked 993.607.016.15 are the final US and ROW version for all cars, varioram, non varioram, and turbo.
https://rennlist.com/forums/993-forum/534382-engine-wiring-harness.html
The US TSB seems to bear this out, as the replacement kit is the same for all cars and includes dummy plugs for the airpump etc for cars where they are not present.
as 993.607.016.15 is the number on my loom this is is reassuring.

Hi guys. By way of an update, I’ve just collected the car back from Swindon OPC where the work was carried out under recall. Other than being a little peeved at not getting a new Porsche toy as a courtesy car, they were utterly faultless.

I took the liberty of taking some pics of my old wiring loom (one of the defective ones). You can see that part of the insulation had started wearing away and exposed the live wires. Given the length of time that’s passed and the fact that my car isn’t exactly a garage queen though, I was expecting worse...anyway glad to have got it sorted. Just taken the car for a shakedown drive and it’s as gorgeous as ever to drive even in miserable conditions.

I also attach a picture of the invoice from Swindon OPC - if only all Porsche bills were like this one!!

Thanks all for your help and guidance. I’d encourage anyone who’s not yet had the recall to check with OPCs against their VIN and part number and get it done.

Cheers,

Pierre

Thanks for the update Pierre, and for posting the fascinating pictures!

I'm still slightly unsure re mine, as per Maurice's comment the reference numbers are for US cars, not ROW, or have I got this wrong?

Cheers

Acme - is yours a 1995 or 1996 model year? The Chassis number after the middle Z will be an R, an S or a T. If it’s an R or an S, I’d recommend going to your OPC to get it checked out. Thanks to Christian Sanger (who I’m with right now) for making me sound clever!

Sadly (being a 993 geek!) I know that the tenth digit signifying the year is a T, it's a March '96 build, registered Sept '96.

Thanks

Gavin

...good on Porsche; I have a 95 Mercedes SL and the engine wiring loom which was made by the king of cheap Lucas has a biodegradable outer casing!! Thus it turns to dust...despite cars catching fire and a class action Mercedes refused to help any of the owners!!

Yes, the pics are from the engine bay box on the left hand side.

Chet - that extinguisher is a revelation. I will almost certainly get one or two of these.

Did anyone pick one up? ..if so where from?

A recent tragic event for a friend of mine who has lost a 993, Ruf rep, spare engine and numerous parts in a garage fire. 4 portable fire exinguishers did nothing just a heap of ashes and torn metal remain.
I always carry an extinguisher in the passenger footwell.

Hi,
