Relocating a/c controls - upper shelf?

Recommended Posts

I am new to the Renn forums...just purchased an '02 (996) C4S with 26K miles...yes, my first Porsche...fun!

I have seen a good number number of posts regarding moving the the a/c controls to the lowest shelf in the center console, as part of an aftermarket Nav installation...but I have *not* seen a part number for a trim panel piece if I want the a/c in the *upper* shelf area (just one spot up from the lowest center console area).

I have done several searches trying to discover any photo or mention of this on the rennlist and renntech forums, all to no avail.

Is anyone aware of this as a possibility, finding an OEM trim piece for putting the a/c controls in the upper shelf area? Part number?

Thanks!

I think if you mean the console in front of the shifter and its the upper position in this console it is the same trim as the one where it was originally fitted.

If it is the lower one it is 996 552 339 00 01C (Assuming standard black)

Nick,

Thanks for this...but, ahem, are you sure?

By "center console" I mean the two-space console below where both the a/c and CDR220 radio are located. Right now I have two open storage bins in this area, having already removed the useless (useless to me, that is!) CD-storage bin.

The existing trim piece housing the a/c control unit is 2.75", top to bottom, and it appears that I only have 2.25" of height for either shelf in the center console. I want to preserve one of the open-bin/shelf spaces, but I prefer to have the lowest spot open, rather than having that spot occupied by the a/c controls.

I have indeed seen the part number you included, thank you, but this puts the a/c control unit at the bottom, darn it...not where I want it!
