There are a few 2nd handers on eBay. You can fit one of those and if you get paranoid, fit a new one when you get it.

Unless you're in the hands of the OPC, if so, pointless asking on here as your destiny is in their hands.

Welcome by the way thumbsup

2002 Porsche 996 Carrera 4S

Have a ring round parts specialists and main dealers, you might get lucky if one has stock, as I was when I was told a suspension part for my 4S was on back order. In fact all I had to do was search online and make one phone call.

Its unlikely that the garage where the car is being repaired will have time or inclination to do anything other than call the local OPC, or Porsche GB parts depot if they are an OPC.

Contact Porsche GB to understand the situation if you haven't already

unfortunately this does happen with 'suppler' parts and a common problem that can result in cars being off the road for longer than expected
