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.

My main goal is to lower the stance of the car, and for this I feel like lowering springs would be the best option. My car is a 987.1 cayman s with pasm. I was wondering if lowering springs would cause the dampeners to wear out earlier than normal or have any other negative effects? I'm also...
So I've installed the ipd competition plenum and Tb kit on my 987.1.
When you install you remove the rear (intake plenum) flapper and plug the vacuum line.
So why do you leave the front flapper connected and operational?I understand that it has something to do with air pulses but does it really...
I had intended to append my latest / final attempt at drone reduction to the first (whale) thread:
... as it was going to simply be a better 2 --> 1 tip assembly for the gen-1...
I've installed my third radiator and I've been letting the car sit in the garage while I try to figure out how to protect the front a little better. I've considered the DIY Mesh method of course and that seems to be the way I'm going to go. I do have a question for those in the know however -...
