  1. Can't find that info anywhere. :(
  2. Sorry for the delay - Wisconsin.
  3. The center console removal can be accomplished without removing the brake lever, as the mounting screws are under the center console itself. You will however, have to remove the shift lever and trim on the lower portion under PCM. Total time for my first removal was about an hour. Use painter's tape to protect parts from scratching.
  4. Hi Loren - that's exactly what used to find the parts. Someone had suggested the part number, I looked it up on the most current PET system, but it never correlated with a part that could be found on the picture - on the photo you included, it isn't shown on the diagram. Because it was fairly cheap, and I figured that "spoiler" was probably correct. Thankfully, it is a fairly inexpensive part. I chew through those lips quickly as most roads and driveways here are on very steep inclines. :(
  5. The part number that is imprinted on the part does not match the actual part number. It was very difficult to find, and it was only after a vendor did an extensive search did I find the part. I still wasn't sure it was correct until it arrived today. In fact, if you look at the online parts catalog on Porsche's website, it is not even listed in the PDF.
  6. Just an update - the two part numbers I found are definitely the spoiler lip pieces needed. You do not need to order the entire wheel well cover. Cost $16 each. 997 504 303 80 997 504 304 80
  7. Have you considered changing the rears? While the lion's share of braking power comes up front, the rear pads are usually active in stability management and can wear just as fast as the fronts.

  10. Just an FYI, VW part number 1J0 972 977 D will fit the plug pattern in the back of the instrument cluster on the 997...in case anyone is trying to source the repair kit and can't get one. It's design is a little different, but the plug still fits properly.
  11. AMP 2-929407-1 999.650.508.40 PBT-GF20 It's sourced by Tyco. The plug itself is fine - it's the black latch that is broken. My only alternative is to pull a purple latch from a VW harness that looks similar.
  12. I'm resurrecting this thread to make suggestion. To pull out the gauge cluster, I used small suction cups to assist in forward pulling of the cluster. The acrylic lenses are cleaned to ensure that dust does not scratch the face. I then used small automotive suction cups to help pull the instrument cluster forward.
  13. It looks like it's on backorder for NA and also in Germany. :(
  14. Does anyone know where to source this part: PNA 721 043 00 202 It is a collection of electrical connectors for repairs - specifically, for the instrument cluster on 997 vehicles. It does not seem to be available anywhere in North America.
