Installed on Saturday, I thought it was all good. After everything was back together and closed up, I found that the lock didn't work - a plastic piece for the MK5 locking mechanism was blocking it.

Sunday, I went back in and made a slight modification and it works perfect now. While I was at it I made a video and posted on YouTube:

WOW this is awesome.
will save someone lots of money.
do you believe the passenger side mechanism will fit as well?
i had to replace both sides on the boxster and driver side on the carrera in the same time. cost me almost $800 in parts. from some reason the passenger side was more expensive.
