Cupholder Faceplate Trim for 02 996

Recommended Posts

My cupholder on my CPO '02 C4 Cab lasted me all of 3 commuting days to work before the front trim piece came off. Dealer says can't be replaced, and of course, "not covered by the CPO warranty", despite being about a month since purchase... It looks like there are two tabs and a set of gear teeth that the faceplate use, and one of the tabs is broken off. The cupholder itself looks and operates fine without the faceplate.

I found the cupholder part number, and it's over $125 delivered via mail order. As an aside, I have some aluminum in the car, and plan to add the gauge trim rings too in the near future.

1) Does anyone sell the trim piece only, either in original satin black or aluminum, or must I buy the whole cupholder from Porsche?

2) Without the replacement, I can't reverse engineer how the thing mounts. Based on an on-line picture, it appears there are two pressure clips on the top of the cupholder, near the sides. Is it that easy to remove -- just slip a couple of small tools on the top left and right sides and pull it out, or do other dash pieces need to come out first?
