Parts help

I found that my driver side air vent intake was loose while I was washing the car. I removed the screw holding it in to see if something was broke and one of the tabs holding it in place was broke. The car was desnorked and evo put in place. I put it back together but didnt write down the part down. Anyone have the part number for the black plastic clip that holds the side air vent in place?

Thanks man. Taking a look though none of them look like the part. The entire thing is two pieces. The vent with its slats are all one piece and that entire piece fits into a black plastic piece that then has tabs that slot into the car...

It's going to be onemofnthose 15 dollar pieces or 300...

Are you aware of the Porsche parts catalogue? It can be downloaded in a PDF format.
Its on the Porsche website or google Porsche original parts catalogue or try the link below. It has just about every bolt/screw for your car with part number.

Very aware. as a matter of fact, this is the same info that Deserion sent me. on this particular piece, it does not show it on the diagram, or if it does, it looks nothing like it. I was hoping to not have to take it back out to get the part number but I guess that is my next move.

thanks every one...

Your car (2003 ) should look exactly like the parts shown on page 210 of the catalogue. 2002 and older are a little different
