Removing grab handles / armrest on RS door cards

Recommended Posts

I have a pair of Cayman R / GT3 RS door cards that I'm having re-upholstered to match my .1 GT3.

The door panels are removed from the car. I managed to get the grab handle off by removing 2 large silver torx screws from the back of the door card (red arrows in pic).

However, cannot figure out how to get the armrest piece off. Anyone know the trick for this piece?  I already tried removing the other small torx screws (blue arrows).

Since the RS cards don't have the storage cubby they are not held on by hinges like on a regular gt3.

Thanks in advance..

Exact model and year of the car you are working on, please...

Sure.  The panels are found on a '12 Cayman R or 997.2 GT3 RS.

 

They are going to be installed into a 2007 GT3.

Found this on one of the parts sites.  Part 7 is 99755585700 which is "pillar trim grommet".  Trying to figure out if that means I can just pull it off.  Or if its fastened from behind.

 

Hoping it doesn't require opening up the plastic welds that hold the top and bottom of the panel together...
