Part #s and how to swap

Recommended Posts

Hi Lauren,

Hope you are in good health; I need a couple of part numbers and if you have any graphics how they could be taken out and replaced:

- The light switch surround which is a circular piece about 3-4mm thick that goes around the switch assembly on the right side of the steering wheel on the dash (just the outer surround)

- The Shift boot surround which is usually the aluminum piece that matches the cup holder dashboard trim - the piece between the center console and the shift knob leather.

thanks in advance

Tekky

Yes those exact parts - I am ordering new ones to paint them black and would like to know how easily they could be swapped. I would probably order the cheapest parts then have my local body shop take care of the paint and would put them in after.

For a 2012 997 Carrera GTS...

Change out is pretty much as shown.

For the headlight surround remove the knob and then the screw inside the surround. I think this has been covered here before.

997.552.427.01.A03 Headlight knob trim -- US MSRP $16.93

Likewise with the shifter part - carefully pry the top piece off then unscrew the trim and carefully remove.

997.553.261.05.D07 Shifter trim in Volcano Grey -- US MSRP $140.82

cheers Lauren - that is great!

One more request I'm hoping you could help me with... If I get a turbo decklid + wing (997) is there a difference between the cab and coup models and since my car is a wide-body it should fit without problems, am I correct to assume that?

Thanks

I would not put a larger wing on the rear without adding the aerokit parts on the front. Last thing you would want at high speed.

I have added all the aero-kit to the front, have you read my other posts and could you please answer the questions?
