Yes, they are available. I have them for the 986, someone will have to help with the 997.

Hi there I have what you need but it is in the workshop manual in PDF, I need to find a way to cut and paste, there is a security lock

Worst case I will do it manually over the week end

See what you can do with this

I had to copy the pictures separately so it is not perfect

I double checked, but the description ( e.g. front lid to wing) should always match what you have on the picture

Good luck
