I prefer the older cradle, personally, and as I still have one left over from the 996 I'll use that in the C55.

I did buy a new retaining strap - which is still available direct from Mercedes, even though you can't use it with the new cradle:

All together now - you can see that bar the mounting tabs on the bracket it's identical to the 996 version:







I've got a load of spare fixings and straps, plus a bracket for I have no idea which model of Mercedes, so if any of you fancy doing this and need something give me a shout.

I'm currently wondering whether I'll win a small prize at Christmas for "most boring thread we've ever had on 911uk".

Interesting as ever Neil.

Excuse my ignorance but what is the difference in the gear in this weeks updates vs the original setup you had settled on?

Better parts? Or different parts to use the different sized extinguisher?

It's probably glaringly obvious but nightshift sleep deprivation has me a bit discombobulated. Grin

So when I get around to this do you suggest going for the parts list you compiled last time around or the stuff above?

Interior is next for me. So once I know if I'm able to retain the standard Porsche runners I'll know if I can use the excellent info in this thread for mine.

Cheers.

PS. I'll have a listen to my radio tomorrow. Standard CDR22 with standard speakers. I don't even have door speakers, only 2 dashtop and 2 rear quarter ones. Lightweight drivers spec innit. Wink

Hi Mark,

The setup I've just posted is going in my C55, however it's clearly the same kit of parts that Porsche used. I've had more success in finding the correct parts from Mercedes than I did from Porsche, ultimately - so for you I'd recommend this parts list:

From Porsche:
996 521 673 00 RHD bracket (puts extinguisher on the passenger seat frame)

From Mercedes:
A001 994 28 45 Clip nuts (x2)
A301 990 00 42 Washers (x2)
N000000 000509 Screws to hold cradle to bracket (x2)
N000000 001527 Screws to hold bracket to seat (x4)

From eBay or other second hand source:
A000 866 02 14 Extinguisher cradle

From expert-security.de:
Gloria Fire Extinguisher from here: https://www.expert-security.de/gloria-autoloescher-p-1-db-mit-kfz-halter.html

Which will give you this:

If you bought this it's likely that all you would need would be the Porsche bracket - and given that you are intending on fitting this to a GT3 style bucket you might be able to make this bracket work for you: https://www.ebay.de/itm/FEUERLOSCHER-MIT-HALTER-Mercedes-W203-C-KLASSE/401522562427?fits=Make%3AMercedes-Benz&hash=item5d7c9c157b:g:1xkAAOSwbLZa0efc

Personally I'd get a fresh extinguisher, also.

Perfect thanks.
Thanks for putting the time into this.
I think it's brilliant. Thumb

Very Happy Excellent.

May as well do every car now you've put the kit together.

I'm gutted as I realised at the weekend the mounting tabs for this are on the seat frame, not the seat rails, so even though I'm using the Porsche rails for my buckets, I cannot use this kit. frustrated

Looks like one of those flare things for me then. Damn

If only there was someone on this very 996 forum who had a workshop full of tools that make other cool tools...
Question bye

Ha, yes. I'm sure Alex could.
No need for me as I'm a precision engineer myself. I could machine and fabricate a lovely bracket but the main attraction with Neil's solution above is that it's all factory parts. Thumb

Great write up! I'm looking to fit an extinguisher to my GT3 seats using the rennline mount. Can you tell me what the hole spacing is on the extinguisher cradle you used so I can check if it will bolt onto the rennline mount.

Thanks
