Is this the cover on top of the interior door handle?

My passenger side is all scratched up for some reason. I think I found the part but it says it doesn't fit my 04 s?

I'm talking about the black trim the accepts both the door handle pull and the longer door handle arc below it: http://www.williamscrawford.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/986-3.2-0071.jpg

That is the basic part, but if you look at the details, the one you selected: 986-555-592-00-B12, is for 1997-1999 and is unpainted, plain plastic.
Yours is the '01 and I expect it's painted black? If so, I see 986.555.592.01 A03

A lot more money for a little black paint.

Thanks! That's interesting, when I look at it , it certainly just looks like black plastic trim but I guess it could be painted? It's very matte.

Rustoleum makes a black multi-surface filling primer which matches Porsche’s 9x6 interior trim black exceptionally well. Plus it’s much more durable than the factory “soft touch” finish.

Good luck

Ooooo. Link? I googled but found way too many options. Do you have to sand the plastic to prep or?

Out of town at moment and will gladly check what currently is in my inventory when I have time next weekend. That said, have use a couple different rattle cans of Rustoleum primers and all were good match. Either of these should work:

https://www.lowes.com/pd/Rust-Oleum-Universal-Flat-Black-Enamel-Spray-Paint-Actual-Net-Contents-12-oz/3728795

Yes, you need to prep the plastic.

Good luck

PS - Been quite some time since I removed that piece on a Boxster but...

If memory serves me correctly (HA a rarity at times!) that piece requires some finesse releasing the clips correctly. Nothing catastrophic if not done 100% correct but do search the archives here for door panel removal or door speaker upgrade for details on how to do so appropriately to avoid any errors.

I'll be damned. I ordered Rust-Oleum interior trim spray in satin and it looked awfully shiney. Then I got one you recommended (I ordered the first before your post), and it looks amazing! I used 800 wet sandpaper to do some gentle sanding first. I'm going to do my arm rest lids next and call it a day. Thank you for the cost savings recommendation!!
