PostPosted: Mon Mar 02, 2015 5:21 pm    Post subject: Rusty nut inside fuel filler pocket Reply with quote

Does anyone know what this rusty nut in the picture below does or what it is connected to as looking in the parts catalogue on page 801-40, it is not shown.

Id like to replace it as it does my nut in on an otherwise clean car but dont want to remove it to find out its doing something important.

Thanks

It holds the fuel filler tube to the wing (as Chris highlighted) You can undo it and it shouldn't move anywhere but if it does and you can't line up the hole you may have to remove the wheel arch liner. I would think holding the filler tube (when the cap is removed) with grips should stop it moving when you replace the bolt.

Mine has got a shiny Hexagon-Head Bolt, M 6 x 12

and is shamefully filthy in there. I should look in that part of the car more often Laughing



PS What a horrible colour for a car Thumb

As above. It is an M6 x 20 hexhead bolt.

Are you sure it isn't an M6 x 12 90037803609 as it says on the Deroure site?

I've just checked,
The Porsche parts list does indeed list it as M6 x 12
The Porsche workshop manual gives it as M6 x 20 [possible misprint] Dont know
