Hey everyone,

I am looking for some help with a part number.

I need the plastic bracket that goes behind the alternator and hook the main harness to. I know that part number changed when the bracket went from holding two plugs to one only.

I believe it is 02 up.

Thanks!

Anyone?

I did get in early on a 3D Printer that is going into production.

I may just have to make them if I can not find them.

Hopefully someone has a number though.

Keith, if you come up with some of these brackets, please keep me in mind as I need one also. Thanks.

I can’t help you on a P/N, but if you need the part, I can try to swing by my local yard again this weekend. They have an 02 Concorde and early 02 Intrepid in stock. I know the Intrepid is a 3.5L, and believe the Concorde is as well (had leather bench seats).

I could really use three total. If you can check that would be great. The slot where the plug slides into tends to break. That is why I am looking for a replacement.

Thanks!

Good luck finding used ones that aren't broken.

Mine on the new Special was unbroken and then I leaned on it by mistake while putting on my intake spacer... cracked now.

I'll check the yard as well. I'll probably go sometime this week.

I know the problem. I had a broken one on one of my M's. I may have one in my spare parts also.

Appreciate it! Three of the four cars have broken brackets. John's has a big zip tie there so I would love to clean it up.

I will take that long satellite radio cord if you have one as well.

I just checked the area salvage yard chain's inventory list and they're showing an 02 and two 04 M's in the 8 Mile location (Detroit). I haven't been there in a while, so I'll try to swing over there on Saturday as well, timing it with a possible dealer trip to look at new tow vehicles.

Thanks guys. Hopefully between everyone we can find three of them for me.

I will plan on sending one out to be drawn so we can print it here.

I ordered what Bobby suggested.

Was a weird metal bracket.

The hunt continues!

Still need three of them or the part number.

Not sure if it’s a part number, but the unbroken one I found in the yard today has “7157-9628-30” and “16238” molded into it. Might be a good candidate for getting a 3D printing file.

Send it along if you can.

I need a good one to get a file made.

John was able to find a good one in the yard and mailed it to me.

I sent it out to be designed into a file that I can print on the 3D printer. Our printer should be here before Christmas.

There is a cost for it to be designed but I am hoping to be able to make these for people at an affordable price going forward.

I searched all summer for a good one of those. Broke a couple good ones I found trying to get the plug off, they're so brittle. Finally got one last month but it's a matter of time before it breaks. Put me on the order list and pm me price when ready please.

Sounds great, Keith. Thanks to you and to John for getting it worked out.

Where the bracket is right above the manifold I'd be worried about temps for 3D printed items.
I heard a lot about the low melting point for the 3D printer plastic when 3D printers first came out.
Not sure if that's still true.

I hope it all works out as I could definitely use a couple of them.

That was true then, but depending on the power of the printer, there are materials available with higher melting points. I know the material we use at our model shop for printing up lamp components to study the lamp assembly before we ship out data to make the tools is very weak for temperature and can't be used for temperature dependent mockups, but there have been some advances for stronger materials in recent years. Which also means more expense on both the machine and the material.
