PostPosted: Sun Feb 03, 2019 9:15 pm    Post subject: Help With 996 Centre Console? Reply with quote

Hi everyone,

I wondered if anybody could help. I am wanting to move the air conditioning controls up a level in the centre console, and replace the cd storage.

I will therefore need a new surround trim, rectangle (as the current one is tapered).

Does anybody know the part number for this trim or better still, have one they don’t need anymore.

The whole project is changing the area where the air conditioning controls is to a shelf area (I already have this part)

Thank you!

The trouble is when your gear lever is constantly in the way of your HVAC. Hence putting it in the higher position.

Alex is exactly right, why Porsche put the A/C controls at the bottom I do not know, that was the main reason behind doing this...

However after reading your DIY thread, I have to concede that I do not have the expertise to attempt it, I didn't realise it would be that involved Surprised Sad

Oh well.

I did got a bit OTT with the method as I had no work on at the time and have the 'tools'. Job could easily be done with a Stanley knife, hacksaw blade and a file. Someone on here I think did it a while ago if you have a search.
