Default Trunk Carpet Fastener

I'm missing one of the fasteners that secures the trunk carpet in place. Can't seem to find any source for replacement. Dealer says they're no longer made. Pelican Parts doesn't list them. Anyone got a spare laying around or know of a supply source?

Wow! Thanks! I had the same "issue".

I bought some general fasteners on ebay but they were too short.

sometimes this is the best way.

I aswell am hoping to find a couple of these fasteners, mine are mossing

I had my trunk carpet sag and destroyed from setting a bbs wheel face in there without a spair tire and no fasteners. Luckly I found the cardboard of the trunk carpet before it was rendered useless.
I need to solve this problem and get some of the missing fasteners also.
great thread.

Thanks Alex for the part numbers. Guess I wasn't searching Pelican Parts correctly. Maybe I'm a bit of a tight-wad, but I just can't justify spending over $20 (including USPS shipping) for this little gem. Guess I'll go without.

Paul, give Sunset Porsche a call. If need be order something else you will need in the future (oil/air filter) or what ever to help justify the shipping.

Being a non native speaker, my vocabulary is limited. THere was a thread (I can't seem to find it now) where another type of fasteners were used for the trunk carpet. Personally, I hate the OEM solution and would love to try something else, or ditch the carpet entirely. The kind that was used in this thread was the type that is used on boats etc. A hole in the carpet with a metal insert, then turn the "****" 90 degrees = locked.

Default If you have a model 997 the part number is 99755180300

The part number for a model 997 is different and the part looks a little different. I'm not sure if they are interchangeable.

The part number is 99755180300.
