Pull bonnet (hood) and boot(trunk) levers

Recommended Posts

My old style release levers (replaced on 02 model) have worn where my big feet catch them as I get in the car, the silver paint has gone to leave just the ugly black plastic. What options do I have to replace them:

- I could repaint them (regularly)

- Find some metal replacements (preferred option)

- Put black boxster parts on (yuk)

- upgrade to the later electric releases (£$£$)

Anyone have any ideas or other suggestions?

I replaced both levers with new (under warranty, fortunately) and then cut a piece of 3M clear vinyl film to protect them. This is the same material that ArmourFend and others use for rock chip protection on the exterior. You can buy it in sheets and cut to fit.

I changed the vinyl tape about once a year, as it would get scuffed but the handles themselves stayed like new.
