WHAT'S INCLUDED: Hood Emblem Only Silver with Black Stripes
If you're looking for a custom look, something different rather than that boring Gold Crest this is your ticket to a refresh. This hood emblem is finished in Silver finish with Black Stripes, it looks awesome and really give your Porsche a custom look.
This emblems is made just like the original you will need to re-use your original screws in back of the emblem, you will also need to re-use the factory gasket . The emblem protrudes in other words its got a slight "banana curve" towards the outside.
The Porsche Silver/Black emblem installs just like the original. It is attached (held) by two self tapping speed nuts located underneath the hood where the emblem is located.
You will have to re-use your speed nuts and your factory gasket , but please follow this advice before removal.
Have a magnetic tool or magnetic stick handy, Porsche uses some kind of silicone on the speed nuts so when they are completely loose they don't fall off with your 8mm socket they hang there, the problem is that there's only 2 small holes behind the hood emblem to remove the speed nuts , if the speed nuts should fall off your ratchet socket you will lose the speed nuts in between the layers of the hood making it impossible to install your emblem, by having a magnet tool while removing the speed nuts insert the magnetic tool so that you will not lose the nuts during removal.
Once the speed nuts are removed remove the hood emblem and now is a good time to clean the dirt deposit behind the emblem on the hood.
Now just install your emblem and gasket by securing it with the speed nuts you previously removed.
FOR THE BOXSTER/CAYMAN 981 , CARRERA 991, CAYENNE 958, PANAMERA, MACAN
Remove the plug that covers the access holes for the hood emblem, remove both 8mm speed nuts, remember to use a magnet while removing the speed nut one at a time, while using one access hole to remove one speed nut insert the magnetic tool by the other access hole to catch the speed nut and avoid the speed nut from falling inside the hood metal sheet.
Remove the back gasket , simply install the new gasket on your new emblem , install speed nuts, if the speed nuts are too loose you can bend the middle opening tabs on the speed nuts for a tighter fit, we also recommend you apply some silicone over the speed nuts once installed , this is not necessary but recommended.
