Need help with Interior parts - Cup holder etc

Recommended Posts

firstly I have a 1999 C2 996 Cab. I just went through the procedure to move the aircon control down into the lower area to remove the CDR220 and give me a 2 DIN space. Its perfect I now have a 2DIN stereo in there (Looks similar to the AVIC installs seen elsewhere)

However I have made a plate that covers the stereo and there is a large black plastic space between the top of the stereo to the bottom of the air vents. Thats messy I though I bet Porsche would not normally design that gap. And I was right because when I looked closely at the AVIC install on the forum I can see that there is a cup holder of exactly the same dimension as to go between the 2DIN stereo and the top of the Air vents.

Great I thought I will go and buy one - Luckily for me I got on on ebay and it arrived. But guess what it doesnt fit . Because silly me in 2002 Porche changed the design ever so slightly .

Apparently they changed the Airvents themselves. The "throat" part that the airvents connect into and I guess maybe also the horse shoe. But Im not certain if thats all was changes

Apparently you can change these parts to accomodate the cup holder - I dont actually want the cup holder I just want to cover up the ugly black space. So Im hoping here that a genius " and you would be one" can tell me the partcodes I need to go and purchase from Porsche so that I can install the indash cup holder into the 1999 C2

There are two style of cup holders. for 2001 and earlier there is a cup holder that fits in a DIN slot and has two individual trays that pop straight out. Beginning in 2002 (I believe it was 2002) the air vent was redesigned to be flat at the bottom, and a new type of cup holder was made standard, it pivots out and it not nearly as tall. Sould like you have the 2002 style cup holder. You can change the frame and horseshoe face to accomodate the new style cupholder.

I can give you the part numbers if you really want to try this.
