Is there an index or search for 996 e PDF parts list

I have downloaded the 996 e PDF parts list. But there are over 500 pages. Is there a way to search or is there an index for this PDF?
Asking here on this forum because I have purchased a beautiful 2001 996 Carrera cab ( cousin for my Boxster S) and can't find on other forums any such info. Hoping someone here also has a Carrera and can help me. Thanks , Bill

Sure, it is real simple: You are reinventing the wheel. Sunset Porsche (and others) have their entire parts system online, searchable, and with prices.

One of the biggest problems with downloaded parts files is that they are out of date as soon as you download them, the online systems stay current automatically.

Most pdf display software has a search function. Try to type control F. You should see a search box pop up.
