Spoiler Lift Piston Part # Needed

Recommended Posts


-- Giving context here, skip down if you just want the part # request --

Today as I was detailing my baby, I noticed that the passenger side of the rear spoiler was somewhat loose. I had some body work done on it about 7 months ago, and only now noticed that the shop had failed to completely secure that side of the spoiler. So, I decided to take the spoiler cover off and fasten the bolt. Well, being the dumba** that I am, I didn't realize the bolt had been cross threaded (presumably by the shop, which is probably why they never completely tightened it), and I exerted too much pressure. After a loud pop, I realized what had happened. The bolt going into the lift piston snapped off clean, leaving about two threads exposed (not enough to unscrew with a wrench). Well, I attempted to remove the bolt with a screw extractor. Unfortunately, that snapped off clean within the bolt. Now I realize I'm screwed (no pun intended) and I need to get a new lift piston.

-- So, here's what I'm looking for --

Spoiler Lift Piston for:

- 2000 986 (Boxster)

- 5 speed

- US

I looked through the archives and found nothing, which doesn't surprise me given that this part is probably never going to go bad. If anyone knows the cost of the part, that would also be great. Thanks...
