I'm looking for a definitive answer on the following question:

Did all MY99 996 and 986 use the actuator 996624115.01?

I have the pig tail with connector in my MY99 996 but the actuator is not fitted. I'm unsure it was ever fitted as the bracket fitted does not have the actuating rod that moves the locking plate.

Looking for 2nd hand parts I see many MY99 parts from 986 and 996 that don't show the rod either and asking the seller breaking the 986/996 yields the answer 'don't have the locking actuator' with above mentioned part number...

That makes we wonder as the part catalogues list the part for both 986 and 996 as used up to (and including) MY00.

Some pictures below to show (1st pic) bracket without rod, 2nd pic with the actuating rod in the bracket and the actuator itself in the 3rd picture.


Can anyone shed some light on this?
