Hey 924
I have a parts ordering problem.

I'm looking for the rear main seal and am not finding the correct one.

Are the "D" and the "K" issues the same?

059 103 051 D is from the Porsche parts list

059 103 051 K is from the internet.

thanks

The letter following the part number usually means the earlier part number has been superseded. So a K comes after a D. For something like this, since it is so cheap, if Porsche still has it, I'd buy the factory part.

I find it a bit strange that Porsche would list an earlier number than an internet part.

that is the weird part. it shows the part number for modern VWs golf and toureg,,,d is for the 924 and the K is for modern cars and stuff.

just want to buy the right one or if they are interchangeable

$40 each is a lil steep!!!

So a warning...

059 103 051 D Is perfect

059 103 051 K ...is the wrong size

Two of us ordered a few from here and there and so far this has been the case

If you order with the K you get a smaller seal. D is spot on

Strange but so far true

So quick question... I also ordered a rear main from national that was a "k" and it wasn't close to my original. (78' NA). Where did you order your new "D" seal from? And any chance you've sourced a pilot bearing as well? I am struggling on finding those parts. Thanks!

Ebay

You can get the pilot bearing there as well

...and pretty sure this is the pilot bearing. NA style which is what I think you need
