Truck & Engine Handles / Latches - 996

Recommended Posts

The DIY pages are great. I would actually like to replace the latches/handles on my 996 but I cannot find just the handles. I have purchased other items several times from Sunset Imports in Oregon but they told me that i'd have to purchase the whole assembly. At over $400, this just doesn't seem to make sense to me.

Does anyone know where I can get just the handles (even part numbers) and approximate pricing?

or ... has anyone touched up the silver paint themselves?

Thanks for any responses in advance...

I doubt you can order these since they are no longer on the US parts list. Perhaps from Germany though...

996 551 511 03 V01 Front Handle in Silver (LHD cars)

996 551 512 05 V01 Rear Handle in Silver (LHD cars)


(I think these are black only)

996 551 511 07 Front Handle (LHD cars)

996 551 512 07 Rear Handle (LHD cars)

Some folks have had success paiting them with Wurth Silver and then several coats of Wurth Clear cloat. You will lose the silkscreen though.

Thanks for the info Loren... I also got this contact via email. Apparently Suncoast Porsche was able to get the handles several months back.


----- Info below from member s1ee -----

Try Rick Knab at Suncoast Porsche (Sarasota, FL) 877-923-1700. He was able to get them for me a couple of months ago.
