yes, I'm well onto the magic of searching for "alternative" components.

Its part of the fun!

Just bought this to replace the leaking one in my 987.2. So far so good.

Yup. I replaced my pump last summer/fall with a $20 part from Napa. I'm very familiar with taking the wheel off and have done a ton of rotor and pad changes but I've never taken off the wheel liner. Taking off the wheel off liner was straightforward and once that is off, the tank and everything around it is easy to replace if you now how to unscrew bolts. The struggle I had was putting the wheel liner back on correctly. The trick for me was to take a break than manhandle and bend the plastic parts, they are tough, to fit everything back in.

I've had my wheel liners out probably 5 times now as part of the widebody build and PCCB brake upgrade. I find the easiest way to reinstall them is to hang them from the 10mm plastic nuts at the top and then work the rest of the Fasteners into position, without also having to hold the wheel liner in place.

I had a "scare" yesterday when I tried my washers for the first time, and only the passenger side was barely squirting.

Searched Rennslist, found this thread, and immediately ID'ed the issue with a "T" connector joining both windshield nozzles disconnected to one side. Fixed in 5 minutes. God bless this forum!
