Default 964 Rocker panels

I need the correct part number for the clips that hold the rocker and rear splash panels in place. As well as a reasonable place to buy from.
Stay tuned, because I will be asking for directions in getting them installed and these panels removed and rehung...
Thanks. I have never been good with any body work...

I look forward to hearing how to work with these parts.

It's #3 in that pet diagram. IIRC, there are 1-2 screws in the front wheel well, a couple of plastic ones on the bottom, and 2 or 3 in the rear wheel well. Take these all off and the pull. It does take a bit for force to pull them off. Most of the clips will break off if they are old. To put back on, just install new clips and push them in. The clips are held to the rocker by 4 small bosses. They are not very strong at all. Most of the 964 cups that were raced would drill thru the rocker and uses screws instead of the clips.

I purchased enough clips to replace all of them, in case I broke them in the process of removal. I'm glad I did. I broke a 3-4.

Scott, don't worry it's easy. Buy 2x as many clips as you need. Also, you can epoxy the screw type clips to the 'shark fin' so they don't pop off anymore.

WOW, I was gone for a couple of days and lookie here... Thank you guys! I have my winter weekend break info cut out... If I understand correctly I now know the part numbers, thanks for the blow up diagram as well, that will certainly make this easier. Buy twice as many because you know me, and I WILL BREAK THEM... perhaps I should just epoxy the damn things in place as opposed to the clip to the panels.
It really doesn't appear to difficult, it's all an illusion until it's completed.

Default resurrection- got to fix this sooner or later

When jacking up the car, I got a bit of the rocker panel, so the Shark fin popped off it's clips. Broke at least one, and broke the parts on the fin that fit into the white clips. So do I just epoxy these onto the fin; is that the best way to get these to stay on?

BTW- it's $150 for a new sharkfin.

Hawk - Yes, you can epoxy the clips onto the shark fin. Recently, I had my shark fins off and the top clip on both sides was semi-broken. I mixed up a batch of 5 minute epoxy and glued the clips on. I used a clamp to squeeze the clip onto the fin while the glue was setting. I left it alone for 30 minutes just to be safe. Both clips are now firmly attached.

I hope this helps.

I did this a couple of years ago and found some oil and heat resistant adhesive at the local auto parts store. Can't remember the name but so far it's held up well. Bonus was it was a single tube, didn't need mixing. In my case there were enough bits of the attachment points left on the back of the fin to make it obvious where the pins needed to be glued. YMMV.

I am in a similar position. My Shark fin piece has broken clips and I bought new clips and will epoxy them back on. Seems like that is the cheapest thing to do, other than finding a good used one.

Thanks guys. It's on the short list, since I don't want to lose the piece.

I did the same thing Geoff about a year ago. I used a liquid nails clear small project adhesive and its held up fine. I cleaned the plastic real good first and as said above put a clamp on the parts. I let it dry for a couple of days to be sure it was solid.

Sleder, I did this a few months ago. PM me for pictures and lessons I learned. You want to pry at the right place so the clips don't break the attachment tabs on the rockers. I got all my parts from Sunset Porsche. I put on all new clips even though I didn't break any. I also replaced all the little red receivers, they were only a few cents apiece. Replacing the rubber strips and every clip and receiver really makes it look like new. A worthwhile project.
