What is this part called?

Drive belt broke along with the part that holds the lower left bolt of the alternator. There is a radiator hose connected to that thing. Also, when I removed it, coolant started flowing out. Can anyone tell me what's that part called so I can buy it and replace it? Thanks for any help.

No, not the bolt itself but the metal plate that's screwed in.

Please introduce yourself and your car. Year and mileage.

Here is a link to the Porsche parts catalog for 97-04 986's. It is 472 pages and should show what you need. http://www.porsche.com/all/media/pdf/originalparts/usa/986_USA_KATALOG.pdf

Year is '98. Mileage is irrelevant. And this forum is useless.

Maybe you should just take your car to someone who knows what they're doing.

Jeeez, nice attitude. . .

You have been given all you need to do the necessary research on this issue. The forum helped you.

Now what kind of jacka$$ allows a belt to 'break'? This is why MILEAGE IS RELEVANT!

Here is the relevant PET page . . . good luck getting further help.

What I can't figure out why the OP was even near that bolt. That's not something you need to mess with to change the serpentine belt.
