2 Switch Batwing & Blank Part #

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have two questions.

Will the two button Batwing fit in a 986?

What is the part number for the 2 switch batwing? (the one with a switch on each side)

What is the part number for the matte finish blanks that go with it?

Thanks in Advance,

- Rick :D

2 switch batwing from a 996 should be 996 552 335 02 01C. Same as a 986 batwing except it has the 2 holes for switches. On a 996 they are for heated seats switches.

There are 2 different style blanks. 1997-1999 was a smooth oval, just like your 1999. 2000 up they were shaped like the switches. 2002-2004 is matte finish. Prior years were gloss finish.

So you have the PN for the matte ones in the flat shape, or if those don't exist the PN for the matte curved ones? And the gloss flat ovals?

Thanks Tool Pants, I appreciate all your help!

The flat blank in a matte finish does not exist.

Flat blank in gloss finish 996 552 425 00 A01. This was used 1997-1999.

Curved blank in gloss finish 986 613 425 00 A01. This was used 2000-2001.

Curved blank in matte finish 996 613 425 10 A05. This was used 2002-2004.

I don't get putting blanks in. For future use?

I just bought new plain batwing with no holes from Suncoast for less that $7.00. Drilled hole to fit my RX-65 radar detector remote. Kept Boxster S script version to be able to return to original some day.

The batwing has more gussets and reinforcements on the backside than a battleship!

What I mean by future use, is that if drill holes in the batwind it becomes useless if I ever want to remove what the hole was drilled for. If I get a two switch one and drill the hole through the blanks instead of the batwing is still intact.

You know about this because you asked a question about the shape of the blanks. I thought what Clem-Clone did was clever. Don't know the year of his car but it has to be 2000-2001 due to the shape and finish of the blank he used. His blanks are the ones shaped like a switch, in gloss finish.

I have seen all sorts of aftermarket switches and indicators in the Boxster batwing. Yes, you do drill holes, but the batwing is not expensive to replace.

If you really want to go crazy then you can buy the targa batwing which has 4 holes.

This is a better picture showing the shape of the blanks, in gloss finish. Top one is shaped like a switch and the bottom one is flat.

Thanks, Tool Pants.

I know the batwings are cheap, but I like the idea of two switches. I am going to install my AUX input on the left in a button. And make a custom Ejection Seat logo for the right button. Just thought I would have some fun with it, but I don't want it to be permanent that is why I will be doing the drilling and sticker application on the blanks not the bating. Then when I get bored with the Ejection Seat logo I can replace it cheaper than buying a new batwing. With a new Oil Slick, Machine Gun, or Cloaking Device button.

What would look better gloss or matte, on the batwing?

I am leaning towards the matte.

Ejection seat is too funny! :clapping: I couldn't think what to put in the 2nd hole. That woulda been great - even on a blank.

You can buy the round plug used on the base Boxster. If you look around you may even find a free one from someone who has retrofitted the wiper dial, or put in a second cigarette lighter plug.
