Great price, more challenging because of design change
(Texas) | January 22nd, 2021
My 2008 Cayman had the different style of connector between the lever and the cable. I hadn't read the prior reviews about this, and I had assumed that I could do the whole job in 45 minutes until I noticed that difference. The job took a lot longer due to having to replace the cable to the door latch. Word of caution, the two screws that secure the latch in the door appear to be Torx unless you look closely. Instead, it's 12 point Allen socket head, and you'll strip it if you try to use a Torx bit. Huge savings, though doing yourself since the part is only $30.
Works great

Ordered and got it quickly, surprised at the cost id shipping, $12.99 was the cheapest for a $30.00 part. Was able to get it installed and working using the old cable. Was going to us the new cable but couldn't see an easy way to replace it. Recommend watching several you tube videos and not just the one link they provide depending on your car model. Overall works great.
Replacement Door Handle Lever for 987.2 Cayman
(Florida) | October 8th, 2020
Genuine Porsche part, decent price and quality. It did take Suncoast a total of 3 business days to ship this out of their warehouse plus another day or so of physical travel before it arrived. Fits perfectly in my 987.2 Cayman as this part uses the same style of door cable connector, so it's a direct replacement without needing to replace the included cable. However, I believe if you have a 987.1 or 997.1, this .2 part will have a revised door cable connector design that won't be an exact match for the .1 style door cable connector. No biggie, just have to use your old cable connector portion of your door lever if that's the case. Anyway, it was not a difficult repair for me as my Cayman uses the .2 style cable connector. Now the interior door handle works like new and I fixed it myself for 30 bucks + tax and shipping :-) It would have costed at least 200 bucks or more at the dealer or independent garage I'm sure. There are many YouTube tutorials explaining how this can be done. This is the video I used, I'm not affiliated with their channel, just found the instructions in this video very useful: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fFDOKRFI464&list=PL7YL8GulQl9PN5xmAIyuiGmr-20erovm2&index=28&t=1s&ab_channel=EatSleepDrive
911 door handle lever
| April 15th, 2020
this part exactly matched my OEM door handle lever. I was able to swap this part out with the OEM part that broke in 1 hour. I was very pleased that the part matched up exactly. Some of the 997 levers have a different connection for the cable. The OEM has a Z connection and this new part has a barrel connection. I was able to swap the part from the OEM on to the new lever eliminating the need to change the cable. If you can doe this it will save you hours of work.
Door Handle Lever

The existing cable won't work with this lever #997.555.381.03 which came with the kit, the OEM unit #997.555.381.01 was deprecated. Replacing the old cable is difficult and would take another 2-3 hrs. Work around the issue by swapping the lever, get the spring back into position took time and patient...lot of. But over all it work fine.
