  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.
  15. I think it's only the bottom lip of the fender well which has scraped across the road. The fender well itself is okay. Loren, thank you for your help. For $20, the other part may be the correct one. I think I may order one side and see what arrives. bob
  16. Loren, these two parts showed up on my PET specific for the GT2, and didn't have pictures: 997 504 303 80 997 504 304 80 I wonder if these are the GT2 specific lips.
  17. These were the parts I was thinking - the front left and right forward liners. I was hoping to replace just the lip, as I ruin them frequently on the street. Thanks for the info. bob
  18. Hi Loren - 08 GT2. When I use the online parts guide, it doesn't list the part. Nor does a search in my current PET. However, the part number is stamped on each lip.
  19. Does anyone know if this part is available separately? Imprinted in the plastic trim are the part numbers 997 504 503 80 997 504 504 80 for the driver and passenger side respectively. A parts catalog search does not identify this part. Does anyone know if it is available separately from the front well assembly?
  20. I can not find this bolt or nut on Porsche's PET catalog. They are from the 997TT/GT2, and mount the intercooler bracket to the body. Anyone have part numbers? One is a bolt...the other is a nut. I am fairly sure they are 13mm M8s.
  21. 997 362 156 03 GT2 wheels have 8 X 19 57mm offset 997 362 162 03 GT2 wheels have 11 X 19 51mm offset
  22. You could always detach the spoiler with the spanner wrench. That's how I do my yearly waxing.
