Has anyone had the need to replace the actuators on the 996 PSE?

I'm trying to refurb my exhaust boxes and get the switchable system working again. The issues I had switching the car to quiet came from the male ball stud fittings being stuck in their female counterparts, plus a snapped actuator rod

One came free with a bit of Plusgas, the other was seized and snapped off the backbox, so I need to source a new stud to weld on.

I need to source a new actuator as I have made one good one out of the pair. Design 911 have one listed, but I was wondering if anyone else has had to replace one and found a better supply option?

I tried ringing the local OPC this morning. There is a superseded part number apparently and the actuator can only be had with a new box. £2.1k for a new box. Err, thanks for looking, I won't be placing an order.

I have tried searching the forum for info on these but the search seems to return every thread since the beginning of time, so clearly I'm doing something wrong.

I believe that the 997 part number for the actuator is compatible. I checked with my OPC and there was no stock on their system but a few online places had them listed. I think they were around £100 each.

I can tell you they are made by Peirburg and maybe avail direct, I would be interested to know.

To help a little more I also discovered it's the same valve which is used on the Ferrari 430 and other models but doubt that will translate into a cheaper price option.

One of mine was also seized but free'd off but the other failed internally and I managed to find a 997 NOS one eBay for £50

997 111 680 00
997 111 901 90

997 part numbers interchange able with 996.

try calling top gear exhaust in bridport - they use the same actuators on their boxes i reckon - at least the ones on my switchable topgear system look remarkably similar!

Thanks for the replies.

With your info I got on to my next closest OPC. Much more helpful.

The 997 items are out of stock in the UK and Germany and would have been around £95. He did find a couple of other parts that are in stock but he isn't 100% sure they will be right based on the description he was seeing.

I fired over a few pictures and measurements, he is going to get the bits in and see how they measure up.

Please update when you are sorted. Mine are both holding with a bodge and I would prefer new units.

Apologies to MC and anyone else looking for the conclusion.

Both of my closest OPS's were useless. I've got a chocolate teapot on order ready for the next time I have to ring one of them.

Design911 on the other hand, they had exactly what I wanted.

Finally D911 coming up trumps Thumb they must have sacked the usual puppet Grin what money were they compared to the opc £95 out of stock ones Thumb
