wtb: 944 flexplate

my mechanic calls it a flexplate, the parts catalog calls it a damper. its the rubber-based plate type thing that hangs out near the clutch.

and the one on my 86 n/a 944 is done for. if anyone has a parts car and can spare theirs, please:

on the automatic, the rubber donut thingy (where a clutch would go) is the (flex) damper...there is a flex plate but it attaches to the torque converter at the back end of the torque tube

there is so much work involved it makes little sense to put a used one in...kinda like replacing a clutch with a used one except unless you know for a fact the used one has little mileage on it

vertex has new ones priced at $699

but I seem to remember having seen them for less than $600Öcanít remember where though !

I agree, go new! Rubber gets brittle after years of use and you would be getting one that has already started the process.
