Same here. Had both my doors replaced under CTO a few months ago.

Is there a revision to the panels that will stop this from happening again, or is this going to be an ongoing issue?

It was just a small batch defect with the glue. One time thing.

Both of mine were replaced under warranty by the previous owner. My driver's side seems to be lifting now. I have removed the door panel and applied sound deadener, so I am afraid the dealer would see that and deny a warranty claim. Any thoughts?

My goodwilled panels that were “on their way” in December still have not arrived. Apparently stuck in a shipping container on the East Coat they’re saying?

Granted it was for ‘14 981 & not my ‘13 991 (I think the door cards are the same, aside from options?) but I was good-willed (no fee whatsoever) back in Sept/October timeframe & it took about 7-10 calendar days to arrive? Interestingly, no issues on the ‘13 but it’s full leather (I’ve heard that made a difference). Good luck! -Dom

Update: my goodwilled panels were cancelled due to being replaced with a new part # which are now on order. Maybe they finally fixed the problem?

I have a 2013 C2 and just noticed today that my passenger side door panel is separating. I’m one year out of warranty. Has anyone gotten good will from Porsche this far out of warranty for this problem? I plan on contacting the dealer to see if there’s anything that can be done with regards to good will but would like,to know if anyone else is in a similar situation.

Dealer has ordered a driver's side panel for me. Said it would covered under my cpo. But after reading these comments I'm thinking I should have asked them to replace the passenger side also, as a preventative measure. If it is caused by bad glue, it's just a matter of time before it comes apart too.

My '15 C2S has the same problem. Both the passenger and driver side are separating. Heading to the dealer Friday to get it resolved.

Hennessey or Perimeter? Interested to hear how they take care of you.
