We put in requests to Porsche Classics everyday 8>)
Most falls on dead ears.
Basically if enough "dealers" send in PTechs requesting the part with a VIN number (sort of like AOG aircraft on ground) that gets there attention - whether they do something about it is a whole other story.
I have issued hundreds over the years.

Porsche's are great cars but there customer service sucks.

I buy a ton of 927 (rhd) parts from them for overseas customers - no problem. I ordered a set of RHD floor mats for a customer down under and they would not sell them to me as RHD was not in country (USA).
I had to prove I had a RHD car here in my garage to get them to release the mats to me!!!!!!

"Most falls on dead ears"

You're familiar with the tracking system and priorities in it?

See my post, apply vacuum & spray in some brake cleaner, keep working the solenoid. I successfully "fixed" 5 of them, just didn't realize it until (I'm assuming) all the brake cleaner evaporated away.

There isn't much to these things. If they are clicking the solenoid is working so either a piece of debris is jamming it, the "hat" is torn or fell off, or possibly the red rubber o-ring on the bottom has failed.
