LNE IMS Retrofit Sticker...where should it go?

I did the IMS Retrofit recently and I have kind of a silly question. Where should I put the serial number sticker? Door jam? Under front hood? Trunk? What is the convention on this...I don't see any recommendation on the install doc.

Mine was put in the driver's side door jam by the approved installer.

I looked high and low...
&*#$%^, where is it? I know I had an IMSR done.
My sticker ended up on next to the emissions diagram on the underside of the rear trunk lid.

To avoid affixing a sticker to paint I put it on the option sticker under the front trunk lid.

Make that 4.
The place that just did my IMSB stuck it in the service book, next to the stamp for the service they'd just done.

Remembered seeing this a while back - Jake Raby said it goes in the door jamb if done at their facility. Post 32.

As I mentioned my installer is approved and he put it in the door jam. It's also the first place he looks on any 986/996 to see if the IMSB was replace during a PPI.

Jager, was the second replacement because of failure of a LNE double row unit?

No failure, just did not feel as smooth as a new bearing. I had the transmission down doing a clutch replacement and decided to check the bearing. Turned it with my fingers and it didn't feel silky smooth (as a new one), so I replaced it.

Also note that I have a single row bearing.

Thanks for the reply. I am going to replace with the double row in my '02 single row.

When I performed the install several years back Jake told me to place the sticker on the inside of the driver's door jamb just above the striker bar.

I kept my bearing. Whats the point? Resale value?(Sorry Jake) I kept mine and fiddle with it from time to time. Eventually I will crack it open or I put it on ebay. Until then it sits on my desk.

That one was a long time ago, back when we sold IMS bearing kits to the public, not just installing them.

As far as keeping your old bearing:
Doing this means you have no warranty. The reason the old bearing is to be returned is so it can be inspected and entered into a data base reflecting the IMSR serial # that you were issued. This is so LN can ensure that your old bearing was not failing, because if it was, your retrofit bearing will also likely fail, unless extreme measures are taken.

I did mine in the early days; not sure there was a sticker.....believe it or not dual rows were not good as there was no extraction method!! I don't have a sticker and didn't return the bearing!! This must have program put in place later?

I can remember experienced porsche service personnel saying "don't worry about it unless you are super aggressive with it".

There has always been an extraction method. I released the extraction procedure BEFORE the very first IMSR kit was sold.

The bearing return policy has always been the same, its part of the return policy and has been since day #1.

Yeah, thats back when I was told that the bearing was impossible to extract, and that it wasn't serviceable and that I was lying when I said I had developed the extractor and retrofit procedure.

Yes, those were the days...

I was speaking of dual row versus single row extraction. Early on, according my information, there wasn't a known extraction method for the dual. Yes of course there was no kit yet either

Again, my procedure was the first for the dual row, and the RIMSEXT_01 was also the first extraction tool that was developed, and from day one it was designed to extract the dual row bearing.

The procedure and RIMSEXT_01 extractor tools were both developed before the first IMSR bearings were commercially released to the market.
