  1. And I've been using the wrong word to describe this part. They call it a bracket, METAL BRACKET - PORSCHE (996-580-667-00). Sorry for my error. Mike
  2. My top is Metropol Blue so that cover is also blue. New cover is on the floor in the picture. I just can't seem to figure out where the newer style clamps go. Mike
  3. Yes that was long ago,sorry. I have a blue 1999 996 C4. Interior is graphite grey. The trim piece which covers the roll over bars is torn so I picked up a new retrofit version awhile back. Just installing now after repairing much of the cab system. Here is what i got: COVER - PORSCHE (996-555-083-04-ERN) METAL BRACKET - PORSCHE (996-580-667-00) SPEED NUT - PORSCHE (999-591-489-02) SCREW 4.8 X 13 - PORSCHE (999-073-060-02) I saw from your post that I'm short one bracket. Tried fitting the one I have but can't seem to find the correct placement for the one and the second when I order it. The old piece had two screws on the interior left and right sides and three on the back side to hold it down. One pre existing one corresponds to the center backside one but the others I guess get replaced by the brackets? Thanks. Mike
  4. Hi Loren, Just ran into this old post. I'm replacing the same part on my '99 C4. I have one of the two clamps so I see I need one more but where on the new trim piece do they go? Its not clear to me. Mike
  5. Hello all. This is my first post for my 1999 C4 cab. I'm replacing both hydraulic top cylinders as they leak badly. So I've looked over all the DIY articles and understand the process but one thing I haven't seen is tallk about the need to fill the cylinders with fluid before installation. Is this a good idea or should I just let the system do it and top up fluid as needed? Any advice is appreciated. Mike
