Please ID for me.....

I'm sure I've posted in the wrong place but could someone please ID the exact part in the picture for me.

I was hit by a boulder coming off a mountain last month and this was the attempt at the repair. (not by me... by the body shop) I'm just going to find the part and replace it myself. (if you want something done right...)

It seems like the replacement they used (which is a Porsche part) is a heavier type plastic. The boxster is an '01; are these going to be one size fits all or do I need to find a 2001 specifically? Anybody have any good boxster salvage contacts? Thanks so much!!!

Hi,

The part is listed as Trim - Satin Black PN# 986.504.393.00.01C-LFT (.00C - RHT), and goes for around $25. Hope this helps...

Happy Motoring!... Jim'99

Wow!
What a hack job. That's not even close. Hope they did better on the stuff you can't see (somehow I doubt it).

So what's the story about the boulder? That doesn't happen every day.

Terry

Available online here... there may be other places cheaper, but I've never really searched for this part at other stores.

If you want a used rocker panel guard you could try www.partsheaven.com but given the price of new it would be neglible.

That hack job of a fix (the photograph) was a new piece of trim… it didn’t even appear to be the same quality of plastic. (it was actually much more thick and sturdy feeling than the original) the part itself looked good, but it doesn’t seem to fit flush with the rocker panel and I can tell my female-nitpicky-ness is starting to annoy the body shop guys. (but no worries… I won’t stop till all is back to normal) We’ve tried a heat gun,(to shape the plastic a little) and you can clearly see the adhesive tape that was added. I’m at the point now where I’d just like to get an entirely new pair (one for each side) and replace them both. Even though they said the part they replaced it with was for an ’01 I can’t help but think maybe this is for an “S” or maybe for an ’05 or newer? It’s taking much too much energy…I’m checking out partsheaven.com right now. (thanks)

As for as the boulder… this is the SECOND time I’ve been whacked by a big rock from above. The first time I was in an NSX; I had turned onto a side road just as the rock rolled off the mountain and apparently I timed it just right…it lodged just behind my front tire. (it brought the front wheel off the road) No damage, just jacked up the car, moved the rock and I was on my way again. This time I was heading over a mountain on my way to Nashville, the rock was thrown off of another vehicle; I had no time to react. It was raining and you know how the Boxster likes to spin around in the rain. It could have been a lot worse, at least I stopped on the shoulder and didn’t go over the side! When I lived in Dallas I never had these mountain/boulder problems… maybe this is a sign? Lol

Thanks for all your help!!
-Rena

Rena, you should drive over to Robbinsville and drive with us in May. A bunch of forum members are going to drive the Dragon the weekend of the 5th.
