WTB - Cup Holder Trim

My cup holder trim is broken and I'm looking for the clip on trim to replace it.

Anyone have one or know where I can source one?

shipped to 47150

Thanks!

Send a PM to Woody and see if he has one or can keep an eye out for one for you.

His screen name is "itsnotanova"

Thanks Randall, but I don't have any of that style right now. Too bad you don't have the other style, because I have two nice one's.

What do you need, just the front piece with the picture of the cup on the right side? It's hard to see what's wrong with yours in the picture. I feel your pain though! The little half-circle things that compensate for cup diameter in the first hole broke off the cupholder in my 2003. I bought a used unit and installed it myself, which took a whole afternoon for me. Had to take off the center stack surround horseshoe, disconnect all the switches, pull out the center air vent unit and the climate control panel. Since then I never use that cupholder anymore. I bought a cupholder insert that goes under the armrest in the storage compartment - not great but it works in a pinch and there are no complicated parts to break with it. You need part number 9965521830201C, which is the whole cupholder unit. Unfortunately new it is over $300! There is one used one on eBay right now in Germany but it is 131 Euros plus shipping - Top Orig Porsche 911 996 Getränke Halter in Schwarz Mehr Teile www Teile Com | eBay

Thanks PaulE for the info!

I'm not in a hurry for it...it's just something I'd like to get fixed. I have seen in the past, dash kits that come with this piece but they are usually carbon fiber or something else.

That pic is not of mine. I didn't have a pic of mine at the time.

Here is what mine looks like.

My pleasure

I guess I'm a hoarder, holding on to my broken cupholder unit in case I need any of the pieces from it to fix mine, but it looks like there are 2 or 3 small Phillips or Torx screws in the underside of that piece that will allow it to be removed without doing all the surgery I had to do. Keep searching eBay, the forums and places like DCAutomotive, even Google using the part number and you'll eventually find it. These cupholders were only used on Boxsters in 2003-2004, but they were on the 996 a year or two earlier through 2005, so they are out there.

My trim piece broke off the other day. So far I can only find whole unit for $300+. It would be nice to find a replacement for just the trim piece. I might contact some local "recyclers" to see if they have any 986/996s on the yard.

Mine was broken too in exactly the same way and then I sent it off to MAcarbon to "fix" it. Looks great in carbon fiber now.
