It prys up from each corner. Use a plastic trim removal tool and pry the cover up from the left side then the right. Better yet, go to the MAcarbon web site and click on Porsche and then click on Dash and roof trim. They have a how to video on the subject. Simple proceedure made even easier with their how to.

Add my thread if you will, to the DIYs list, as I have shown how to replace the trunk release switch, side markers, cup holders, AOS, and starter / alternator cable.

Since my last oil change,I put 2000 miles on my 06 997 S in 18 months, do I need a oil change ? Odometer 12000 miles. Any suggestion ? Thanks.

Great Thread

I do all my own work and there are some instances where you have to figure out how to remove particular parts of the car. Thanks for sharing the info!

Can you replace the Low Horn without removing bumper?

Hi guys -

I took my car in for servicing and was told my low horn needed replaced. It must have gone bad years back as it always sounded like that to me. Can it be replaced without removing the bumper?

I have a 2006 911 C4.

Thanks

RK

Bumper cover must be removed. The horns (high & Low) are tucked in so removal is a must.
