Need some help finding a part number, and for the matter, the name of the part! The picture just shows the passengers side of a piece that surrounds the dashboard (I think its all one part, anyway). It's between the windshield and the dash. Does anyone know what this part is called and what the part number may be? This is for 2001 996 Carrera.

I've found that now. It's part number 996-552-989-02-VRK, and costs around $1500 to $1800. Won't be buying the any time soon.

And I thought that was the Self-Activating Photon Torpedo Guidance and Tractor-Beam Deflector Inflator Mechanism Shield.

The one in the photo looks pretty good to me.

Wow on the price tag.  Good thought.

Haha, nice! Well, it has several scratches that don't show up that great in the photo. But you can see the big one right there where it meet the vent trim. The cheapest price was at two places, Gaudin Porsche and Paramount Automotive, for $1,575.61. As usual, the highest price was at Pelican, for $1,928. Interestingly, these are all over eBay ranging in price from $20 to $60 with free shipping. I guess I know where I'm buying this part!

You can probably get it redyed for about $100. I just had the interior of my 996 redyed including the center console and it came out great.

So, a little but of good news! As it turns out, mine aren't leather—thank God! Those are insanely priced. Mine are some sort of soft touch plastic, the actual part numbers are as follows:

 

Driver Side:  996-552-185-04-A03
Passenger Side:  996-552-186-04-A03

 

Those only run about $180 each from my local dealer. However, I can find these for dirt cheap on eBay. Prices range from $20 to $60. So happy about that!

      Hi Guys, I am a new member of this community and I am very happy to be here. 
      My name is Mathias and I just bought my very first car. I am university student so I wanted a cool, sports car and as I live in Dubai, the weather is warm so a convertible was ideal. I have therefore just bought my first car, the Porsche Boxster, 2006. As this is my first car, and I have bought it as the 3rd owner. I have a lot of questions about how I should maintain the car, and hope you guys can help😎🏎
       
      So first of all, it’s a Porsche Boxster in a beautiful red, with a black soft top, from 2006 that has driven approx. 80,000 km. 
      it has a beige interior.
       
      1) the paint inside the car has scratches and shows the black color under the beige coating. How can I fix this? 
       
      2) the speakers and radio signal is very poor and I want to be able to play music via Bluetooth and aux, is this possible? 
       
      3) is it possible to set up Cameras in the car, for parking? 
       
      4) there are scratches on the exterior, and I took it to the Porsche center, and they said they do not have a perfect match to this color as they don’t make it in this specific red anymore. Is there anything I can do? 
       
      5) the leather inside is looking a little bit worn, is it possible to fix this up? 
       
      6) lastly, is there any mods, DIY upgrades or accessories you recommend I to add to this 2006 Boxster?

      Hi - 2002 996: Scoured the lists but can't find this particular cluster problem anywhere.  In short, my salvage cluster shows a list of errors on start up but my original was fine....  Here's the details.  My current cluster shows an intermittent airbag failure warning on the led screen followed by the idiot light.  It usually occurs at start up, clears at the stalk and the idiot light remains on, but flickers on occasion.  My mechanic had ruled out everything he could related to the airbag warnings and since he didn't have a spare cluster, couldn't swap to test for that. I personally purchased a salvage cluster, removed the battery terminals, installed it and it came to life (I'm also having to buy replacement connector housings because mine disintegrated).  The problem is the info screen pretty much scrolled through a variety of issues like oil pressure feedback, temp feedback, fuel feedback, etc.  The oil pressure gage was also unresponsive.  I expected the odometer to be wrong, but didn't expect all the errors.  I also started the car and while it ran, it did run rough, sputtered a bit.  Do I have a bad salvaged cluster?  Does the cluster need to be programmed (beside the odometer)?

      Welcome everyone to another installment highlighting the wonderful world of fragile Porsche parts!
       
      Have both 17" and 18" wheels and have recently lost the metal Center Cap logo medallion off of one wheel of each size.
      While removing the other center caps every remaining medallion fell right off in my hand.
      Metal medallion secured with a random dab of some type of adhesive.
       
      We have reached the end of lifespan of whatever adhesive the Center Cap supplier used to keep precious colored metal medallions stuck to those cheap plastic caps.
       
      Anyone know how to remove old adhesive?
      Anyone have any idea what adhesive to replace it with?
      Anyone know how much the Porsche/Piech families made selling replacement center caps last year?
       
      Remember when paying through the nose for your precious replacement Center Caps that the Porsche and Piech families are the 7th wealthiest oligarchs in the world per Wikipedia.

      wires came out of my camshaft sensor and not sure what order they are

      Okay this is REALLY specific.
      The adjustable tension cable on the drivers side of my cabriolet disconnected at the top where it threads (8mm) into the top frame, not at the bottom where it snaps onto the ball.
      The is a larger diameter (10mm?) clean smooth painted hole where the cable needs to thread in, which leads to the presumption that there was a nut on the back side?
      Searched all over including removing driver's side rear 'door' panel and fishing around with a magnet but no loose nut found.
      Looks like getting to back side of this frame casting would entail a major disassembly of the cabriolet top frame?
       
      Also, what does this clip that goes over hydraulic cylinder do?
      Right side clips is in place about halfway down length of cylinder.
      Left side clip was down around the base of the shaft.
      Replacing it where there appears to be a shiny spot looks like it would interfere with the cabriolet top potentiometer arm.
      Right cable threaded into frame at top
      Right cable threaded into frame at top
      Missing cable location
      Smooth clean painted hole in top frame where 8mm cable end is supposed to thread in
      Left cable
      Left upper cable end with 8mm thread
      Clip question
