Just open the cover and you will see 8 small, hex head screws.
The 2 closest to the hinges are the toughest to get to.
Releasing these is all that's all that's needed to change out one cover to another.
The skeleton remains intact.
I think I may not have been clear. I am talking about the door armrest that hinges up to reveal a small storage area. There must be a trick to getting it off without disassembling the entire door panel.
I've looked into this myself as I wanted to buy Aluma-look lids and install them in black of the ones I have. I have a copy of the shop manual and the only way I could find to change lids was to take off the entire door panel to do so. Too much work IMO.
You know, it's funny. I've owned my 987 for a couple of years now, and I never knew those door compartments were there until last night when watching a YouTube video on door panel removal. I guess the ol' girl still has a few secrets. First thing this morning I went out and checked to see if the PO had hidden anything good in there. Nope.
Old post but any updates to this? There has got to be a way to take that door armrest top pad off with taking to door panel off which still would not separate the pad from the assembly. Underneath are those 5-6 rubber bumpers and I thought after removing one I would feel a torx screw underneath and that is how the pad would come off. Don't feel/see anything. Gotta be a way.
My 2012 Cayman R has left for Jake Raby's garage to begin the conversion to a 4.2 Liter monster. I am pretty excited to see what I get back and the wait will kill me. I will keep you updated with any photos they take at the shop and progress with the build in general. I am planning to stick with...

I know people have done this but multiple searches did not yield what I'm looking for.

I’m pretty new to the forum, thought I would share what I’m planning for my 987.2 cayman and hopefully hear some thoughts/feedback based on what you guys might have done in the past.
