I looked at my purchase summary & found the seller and that he is still listing them. He calls them "Porsche plastic caps Top push rod pivot Boxster 986 987" and he is from the Nederlands. I read a recommendation about these on either this site or one like it and I was impressed with them and how quickly they arrived. The envelope had been opened and then taped closed by Homeland Security. My car is an 08 Boxster so I'm sure it is the same as yours but I wonder if it isn't the same for the 986 since he list it also. Good luck

Wish I knew about these sooner! Looks like it would have saved me about $250! Something to keep in mind for the next time they break I guess.

Here's a sample of what I'm talking about. Note that there are many examples of these types of RC parts that could work...

Certainly better than paying $75 for one plus $150/hr for installation.

Again, if someone could measure the original part, I bet we can find a corresponding RC car part that would be much stronger...

I am not sure stonger is better in this situation. the top is under a lot of stress, and should have some pieces that break. If these can't break something will get bent. I am sure that will cost much more in the long run.
