Oil plug washer

I took out my drain plug for the oil and the washer fell apart. Do I have to Porsche specific one or can I purchase something from Napa or Advance to do the trip? Dont want no leaks.....Thanks.

Aluminum washer should work fine...but for future oil changes you may wish to buy the kit so you can pull the plate and check the pickup tube screen for debris.

Each time I buy the gasket kit I’m given an aluminum crush washer that seems to be a few mm to big in diameter. Not sure if you are close to ACE hardware stores but they have an amazing box of automotive gaskets both copper and aluminum. They are in these orange boxes that you can select from.

Ace didnt have the right size. I went to Oreillys and bought 2 copper ones. M12. Worked great.
