Indeed, today I'm exchanging rubber at my local P dealer. Removing the worn 305's and replacing with my oem N 295's with 90% tread.

I did spend close to three days cleaning them and buffing light marks out. Wife thinks I'm mad ( It does help in my world.. ) but its another 80 days before we get some decent weather to run on Summer tires.

Default How to remove 997.2 PCM / Radio *****.

The PCM ***** became kind of sticky with the high humidity and hot weather in FL. I removed them (with a T-6 torx bit) the other day and cleaned them with rubbing alcohol.

Note that the 997.1 PCM ***** are different. The ***** on the 997.2 PCM are two-pieces and have caps/covers.


If you need to replace them, here are suncoast links for reference (I am not affiliated):

997.2 PCM ***** $60:

997.1 PCM ***** $29.90:

Yes, it's fixed. I don't think it gonna come back since cleaning with rubbing alcohol removes all the sticky surface and what you have in the end is plain solid plastic.

Thanks Robert, Jeanie, Cam, Rory, Veronica and all the RS| crew for the hospitality.

PS. Painters tape did not hold great after a heavy rain. I finally decided to protect the front end with a clear bra.

Found this thread trying to verify this part number was the correct protective film piece I wanted to replace.

I'm glad I'm not the only one this meticulous.
