Side skirt confusion for 996 Coupe...


Recommended Posts

I'm trying to determine the correct part number for the older "Cup" style side skirts to order for my 2003 996 Coupe. These are the older, more rounded skirts as compared with the newer GT3 or "Cup II" style skirts which have the razor-sharp edge.

My dealer tells me that the part numbers for the rounded "Cup" skirts are 99655998001g2x and 99655998101g2x, however he says those are only meant for cars up to MY01 and that they don't come with any mounting hardware.

The Tequipment catalog lists another number of 000-044-802-05 for what appear to be the rounded skirts for MY02 and newer cars, but the dealer is unable to find much info about them in his computer (he's going to have to check with Porsche directly on this).

For those of you who have MY02/03/04 cars who have the "Cup" rounded skirts, can you tell me what part numbers you ordered? Was any additional mounting hardware required?

Thanks in advance,

The older Aerokit Cup style side skirts are held on with epoxy using adhesive kit 000 044 000 37. The newer style Aerokit Cup II use only double-sided tape as they clip over the existing skirts.

Here is the parts list from the Aerokit Cup (older one) for just the side skirts.

Side Member Panel

Part Number Qty. Description

996 559 983 00 G2X 1 Left-hand side member panel, primed

996 559 984 00 G2X 1 Right-hand side member panel, primed

n/a 2 Retaining strip

n/a 6 Templates 1, 2 and 3; left and right (3 ea. per side)

n/a 22 Countersunk sheetmetal screw, 4.8 x 13

n/a 16 U-clip

n/a 1 Left-hand adhesive film

n/a 1 Right-hand adhesive film

n/a 2 Sheetmetal nut; St 4.8

Part numbers are not given as they are part of the larger (complete) kit.

If you need the install instructions for both kits let me know and I will email them to you.

Wow,

Thanks for the very informative answer, Loren. If you wouldn't mind, I'd love to get a copy of the install instructions for both. I'll PM you with my email address.

So I assume there is really no difference between the 99-04 cars where the skirts mount and that any of these 996 narrow body skirts (cup and cup II) will fit?

Also - any idea what the difference between the G2X part numbers you gave above and the 000-044-802-05 part number listed in the Techquipment catalog?

Finally, am I to understand that the adhesive kit (000-044-000-37) includes the retaining strip, templates, screws, u-clips, adhesive film, etc... that you list above?

Thank you very much for all the terrific info,

I can not say that for sure. But you need a body shop to paint them anyway so they can likely make them fit.

The numbers I gave you are the individual side skirts. You will see the full listing in the instructions I sent you.

Finally, am I to understand that the adhesive kit (000-044-000-37) includes the retaining strip, templates, screws, u-clips, adhesive film, etc... that you list above?
No. Again, you'll see (in the instructions) that the adhesive is separate from the aerokit parts.
