First time post "newbie" style.

How do you remove the rear package tray/Bose subwoofer deck in a 2006 997 Carrera.

I am ultimately trying to gain access to the three nuts holding in the rear struts to install a set of H&R springs and I am a tad nervous taking a tire iron to the rear deck.

I've searched this forum and came up empty.

Any help would be much appreciated.

I'm going to attempt this job too. However, the car has PASM, so I need to use the special tool to remove the strut top nut while not disturbing the PASM wire at the top of the piston. Any idea the size of the nut? I have a special tool, but in 22mm. If it's a different size, does any one know, so that I can buy it before doing this job?


If you are looking for the top of the spring towers, they

are in the engine area.

Here is a picture of the strut towers. It looks

like three nuts hold the strut tower to the frame.

The tower are just a little behind the wheels.

Maybe you do get to these from the back seat. I

do not know.

You could try calling tire rack. Here is the pss10

for 997 cars.

Just did this job last night, that subwoofer is a PITA to deal with....good thing it is a useful addition to the sound system :) why would they design those things to go directly over one of the strut tower bolts? getting the rear suspension out of my 2002 996 C2 was ridiculously easy once you got the subwoofer out :-P
