How Much Does it Cost to Fix the IMS Bearing?
The table below lists the actual prices I paid for the various IMS, clutch and flywheel parts. Where applicable, these costs include shipping and tax. I may have missed a few small parts here and there, but the cost should be pretty close.
You can find the original cost breakdown document here. Note that while many of these part numbers will be the same for all years of the 986 Boxster and 996 Porsche 911, some vary by year. The part numbers above fit my 2000 Boxster S. You should always check your specific year and model.
Where Did You Buy Your Parts?
Many sources. I spent awhile searching and comparing costs. I purchased parts from the following websites:
I am not partnered with any of these sites and don't endorse them. You should do your own research when shopping and ensure you are buying quality parts from trusted merchants--particularly if you use eBay. There are many excellent sources for genuine Porsche parts and for OEM parts like Sachs and LUK. Just make sure you know what you are buying.
