Need help finding a door tumbler
Hey guys.
I have checked a bunch of threads here and found some great help.
My key fits in the drivers side door and turns but does not open the door.
From many videos, posted here. I see that I need a tumbler assembly because it has worn out.

You can replace the key switch with your key so that you don't have to buy a new key.

But I cannot find a dealer who can sell me the tumbler..
Even Porsche did not have the part listed??????

Maybe my parts guy is dumb????

Even if I could get a OEM parts number I would buy a real Porsche tumbler.

The tumbler mechanism is the assembly that the key's teeth fit into to allow the lock cylinder to turn. If it turns, your tumbler mechanism is fine.

Sounds like you need the spade shaft that connects the cylinder to the door latch mechanism.
