    Help with Alternator Cap Part #

    When installing my VRSF chargepipe, I noticed that the plastic cap for the positive terminal on the alternator was missing. I guess it got knocked off when my stock chargepipe blew up / shot off, as the bolt that holds the stocker bracket on was gone also LOL.

    So, I tried looking up the part # on RealOEM and have not been able to find it.

    I found this diagram, but item 9 in the diagram does not have a number

    Can anyone help me out here? I currently have a crappy piece of plastic rigged over it and zip tied so nothing metal touches it accidentally.

    There are two theories to arguing with women. Neither one works

    After a little more digging, I found that the part #17 was incorrect, sadly. It is for something in the trunk. However, if anyone else comes across this thread, I did find the correct part (the missing #9 from my OP) for sale on this site:
