No, it is an assembly, the only stalk which separates from the assembly is the OBC stalk... and even that is not sold separately.

You can replace it with a two stalk, but then you lose the Cruise Control.

Suck it up and buy new from the dealer, sunset, etc., or get a used one from salvage.

Cheers!

I just went through this with a used 3 stalk from this awesome site. My TS's quit canceling, and hi beam disappeared. Found a broken plastic piece in the surround German bakelite???

Pretty easy, with these instructions:

If your lights stopped cancelling, it may not be the stalk, but the clockspring.

Checkout my thread when I had the problem:

If the piece you found looks like the larger piece in my first photo attachment, then your clockspring is broken.

Unless the Porsche is your daily driver, I wouldn't order the new stalks until you've opened things up. I didn't need new stalks in the end, but still installed the new one because I wanted to wire up the OBC. Might save yourself $200.

I don't have a link, but I think the 4 stalk switch was:

6-613-219-10-EWC - although that may have been the wrong one for my car, as the surface with the labels was a matte finish instead of shiny like the original.

Airbag/clock spring: 996-652-211-00
