987 Center Console Removal


Recommended Posts

Does anyone have pictures and/or instructions for the removal of the 987 center console? I would also like to ask where I can buy a 987 shop manual (that would like the procedure for this console removal among other things) and how much the manual costs.

Thanks in Advance!

:cheers:

I have not seen instructions. I watched a mechanic I know do it because he had to replace an air bag control unit which is under the radio. Way different procedure than a 996/986. I took a bunch of pictures but it was dark in the shop and only a few came out. I did not make a note of each step but I think I could remember if a local owner gives me their car to practice on. :D

What is unique with the 987 is how you remove the shift knob. You lift up the boot just like a 986 but then you need to unlock the knob before you can pull it off. There is a black plastic locking ring that you rotate to unlock the knob - then pull it off.

Porsche has a monolopy on shop manuals. Peter told me for the 987 it will not be in paper form.

I was told about it over at ppbb

Chris.

Only problem is that those are for 986's not the 987, in this situation the center console is different, oh well maybe I'll get a chance to look at it next weekend.

Porsche. $110 per document. Be warned the center console is actually in the Exterior if I remember correctly. It will be in the TOC that you can view for free.

It's all there. You just have to buy it. Better than the old $2k or whatever it was....IMO

Noticed you were the original requestor so I thought I would help direct a little more than just saying Porsche.

Do a document search for a 987, you can buy the Workshop manual groups online and recieve them immediately. All yours and all legal. :)

I have the "Basic" 987 workshop manuals and I can tell you that the PDF manuals posted so far on the Porsche tech site are incomplete. If you download them you do not get updates so you will have to repurchase them. I can help you get service information on the 987 including complete part numbers, exploded views, and the "Basic " workshop manual...
