Popular Post Ben Posted March 24, 2021 Popular Post Share Posted March 24, 2021 Hi all Just thought I'd share my experience of replacing the interior boot/bonnet release switch. My frunk switch stopped working the other day - the switch itself suddenly felt a bit loose, which I soon learnt was a common issue, where a small part of the internal plastic gubbins breaks, so a whole new switch is required. Searched on D911 etc and the part was coming up at around the £80 - £100 mark. But there are lots of sellers on eBay of what looks like the same part for around £20. So I decided to take a punt on the cheaper option, on the basis that if it was a cheap copy I'd send it back or just live with it till it breaks again (they are pretty easy to swap out). I have to say though that the item I was sent, I can barely tell the difference with the 'original' part. It might be a very good copy, or the same part from the same factory but missing out the middleman, but whatever, it fits and works perfectly. I got it from here: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Bonnet-Boot-Release-Switch-99761310502-For-Porsche-911-987-997-Boxster-Cayman/174391810398?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 Or there are lots of other sellers you can choose from. And I used this excellent guide on Rennlist to fit it: https://rennlist.com/forums/997-forum/893373-diy-for-replacing-the-trunk-engine-lid-switch.html Hope this helps someone! 2 4 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
