MJR3 replied to thunderc4s's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Comment to thunderc4s.......my handle broke off from the latch. The entire handle/latch needs to be replaced as it is one unit. The original lock can be removed and easily installed in the new handle. The Porsche part cost me 143.00 with the PCA discount from my local Porsche dealership. The cost was more expensive on the Suncoast website. Good luck.
MJR3 replied to thunderc4s's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Thank you Loren.....yes, I did read the thread mentioned several days ago and that got me to the point of being almost able to remove the liner. The issue of the two supports was resolved by me earlier today when I realized that all you needed to do was gently pull the support off of the bottom piece. Then I realized that even that was not necessary as the liner could be raised up to a closed position. The actual glove box door falls away from the liner when the 11 screws are removed. Bottom line...the new part is in place and everything works perfectly.....and I saved myself 180.00 in labor charges for 10 minutes of my work. Thank you for your response and the earlier posted photos on the 11 screws removal process. That is what really gave me the clue as to how to make the repair.
MJR3 posted a topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)2002 911 C2 Cab.......The handle of the glovebox broke off. I have all necessary parts to repair the complete handle. The glove box door liner needs to be removed in order to remove the broke latch held on by two screws. I have removed the screws holding the inside glove box liner that was secured by 11 screws. I now need to remove the left and right side sliding door holders/closers (for lack of the correct term). When this is done I will be able to remove the broken latch and attach the new part and reinstall the liner. Any ideas on how to remove the two supports that hold the door in an open position and retract to close the door? Incidentally, my local Porsche dealer wants 180.00 to install the part for what should be a 10 minute job. The new part cost me 143.00 with the PCA discount. Thank you for your help.
