Center Console Arm Rest

Recommended Posts

I have a 2000 2.7l and tonight I replaced the center console due to lots of scratched on the old one. I went to replace the lid for the storage box and the new console I bought from Sunset Imports did not have the slots for the pin attached as I had on my old console. Did Porsche change the design, I could understand why, if the lid broke off you would have had to replace the whole console. Is there a part that snaps into the back of the console that has the slots? Or did I get a bum console. The new does not look damaged in any way.

Thanks for any help.

Since this comes up so often I thought I'd comment on the typically recommended fix (the kit). I too replaced a 2000 Boxster S center console with a new carbon one which has a different design to hold the arm rest.

You can use the kit if you choose but that kit was designed after the fact to repair the old style center cosole if it broke. If you are replacing a old (I believe 2000 and older) center console with a new replacement it is better (my opinion) to purchase the parts that are used with the new design. Someone had listed the part numbers somewhere on the net and I can dig them up if needed. I then assembled the armrest on the new console and updated attachment parts to create a console just like the newer ones came from the factory. A cleaner OEM look.
