This is near cyl #8. The rubber ring is hooked onto a metal arm.

Thanks, Andy

I do have a feeling it is a wonderRing... someone put it there for the next guy to wonder.

Unless a DJet has something special there but not the KJet.

My car (KJet) is in about the same state so I'll look tonight. Cannot remember seeing it there.

It connects to the air cleaner housing. There should be another on the other side. Helps secures the air cleaner housing.

^ ^ ^
well that is quite a revelation.
One more subtle but definitive difference in otherwise seemingly identical cars (K and D jets)

Thank you for this - 9 years of owning this car with my air cleaner not anchored by these; never knew why the hook brackets were there. My rubber loops are long gone.

Thanks! Looks like I need to get one for the other side then!

RM European parts arrived yesterday - not what I expected but they work just fine. When I searched the MB part referenced above, RM European lists it at $0.36 compared to roughly $5.00 at other sites. The part that arrived is Porsche part number 999 701 602 40 - a camshaft seal for 924, 944, 928 models. Apparently it is the same 5 x 50mm rubber ring.

Caveat Emptor to the purists. Shipping was $8, more than twice the cost of 10 of these. They are installed and my car is much faster now.
