facelift cupholders

Recommended Posts

I need the cupholder module from an 03 or 04 boxster or an 02, 03, or 04 996. these look to be the same no?

Some (not very forthcoming) person on ebay sold me a LHD (uk?) cupholder. unfortunately it pulls out toward the steering wheel.

it has the following part number on it.

996 552 184 00

what is the correct part number for a US(and others?) spec RHD model?

thanks

Did not know there was different versions. But what whould you do with it anyway?

The cupholders pull out away from the driver. putting the wrong model in the wrong car has the cupholder pull out towards the steering wheel.

here's a picture from brucem's install

as for what i would do with the cupholders? i would think that is pretty obvious. maybe put a drink or 2 in there. not everyone can make every single drive an all out track experience. wish i could.

Ok, you are going to do a retrofit. http://www.6speedonline.com/forums/showthread.php?t=47268 Brucem is the only one I know who has done this. If you get your parts take pictures of how the ducts need to be modified.

I plan on taking pics. i have all the parts i need (vents, horseshoe, brackets etc) just got the wrong cupholders. sunset estimated 2 weeks. :(

overall it looks pretty painless. i've read on various forums that others have done this mod. heard estimates of less than 1 hour for the full install.

from what brucem says, it looks like one needs to melt/mold the ducts in the car and slightly trim the back of the vents.

will photo and document the process.
