Rubber Air Deflectors in Front of Rear Wheels

Help! Need to order the rubber parts just in front of the rear tires. These are some kind of air dam or air deflector but I don't know the name or the part numbers. I tried searching in the on-line parts catalog diagrams but can't seem to locate it.

Anyone know the name or the part number for these bits?

TIA,

on the 986...

driver's side is:
986.504.393.0001c

passenger side is:
986.504.394.0001c

Typically run $42-45 from Sunset or Suncoast Porsche. Installation is a breeze as well...

Bottom Edge Falling Off

The guards are good on my car, but the edge piece wants to fall off. So far I've caught it each time and pushed the pegs back into the holes. Is there some kind of adhesive I could use to make the thing stay in place? Or, must I buy a new edge piece? And what would hold the new one in place?

I replaced mine with the Aero II skirts (below), I now have those parts sitting in my spare parts cache. If you want mine I'll send them to you.

P.S. Turbo23dog, this offer is for you. If you don't want them Schnellman said he'll take 'em.

I had the same problem with my drivers side. The bottom edge kept coming loose and hanging down. Embarrassing when my friend pointed it out to me. The bottom piece is a force fit with rubber cone shaped studs that force fit in. Mine were smooth in shape as the previous owner must have hit something that tore it loose smoothing out the base of the cones so they no longer would hold in place.

It was an easy replacement that requires removing the wheel. One screw is underneath the rear wheel liner. Liner is not hard to loosen so you can gain access to the small screw at the top of the "canard" or air dam. I didn't break anything in the process so you know that mortals will have an easy job of it. Check out some of the discount houses as they are having specials and I believe you can do a lot better than $45.

Sorry about the guards Schnellman, Turbo23 took 'em. I do think I have a fix for your rubber edge pieces though. Epoxy, it's a quick permanent fix. Just mix it up and spread it on, once in place it will dry in minutes! That is as long as you can't pull the rubber tits all the way through the holes until they lock.
