Defective/Warped Door Panels

Postby twitte on Sat Sep 07, 2019 1:45 pm

Anyone have their door panels pop up/warp due to improper glue used at the Porsche factory combined with heat? It appears to be a common problem for certain models/years. Solutions or fixes? This was discussed briefly on page 126 "2014 Cayman: Warped Door Panels" in the August 2019 Panorama. Also lots of discussion on various Porsche websites. Dealer wants about $3K to fix both doors (replace door panels with new parts).

Update 10/9/19:

Porsche agreed to split the cost with me (my car was out of warranty) so they just installed 2 new door panels and the cost was about $1100. They look great.

An alternative that I found out about on Planet 9 was Pedro Bonilla at PedrosGarage in Odessa Florida. He fixes these door panels in about 2 days and the cost is between $150-$250 per panel depending on the actual damage. They have been fixing these door panels since around 2007 (in the 987).
