Hmm..what updated intake grille? Is this the grill where others are buying the mesh screen from home depot and diy? Does sunset sell this grill for the 986 or 987? Thanks!

The updated grille is for the 986 driver side intake grille. It is not a mesh screen insert,it is OEM.

my fellow comrades! I succesfully took the side vent and the grill out last night but the snorkle it self wont budge. for the love of pete, I've given enough force to wiggle it and pull but to no avail..won't cooperate. don't want to use too much force as im afraid that the noise coming from wifey will be louder than the de-snorkled 986

Is there anyone out there who's coming this saturday who would like to find their inner kindness by helping this poor soul to pull the tube out and be completly de-snorkled on the way home. I will provide that person and their other half a luxurios lunch courtesy of Albertson Deli

Thanks in advance

I'll be happy to give you a hand, Gerry. I recall it did take a pretty significant yank!

Lunch isn't neccessary, one Boxster fanatic helping another is its own reward!
