Porsche Crest 996 door lock repair hack. $250 new VS $7 new

Hey Pelicans!
I figured out a way around buying the $250 door lock assembly, as Porsche sells it, for the one piece necessary for a common repair. I provide a link below to the kit that I bought, for a Vw Passat! It is $9 delivered next day or $7 if you get the same kit and wait. I did a pretty extensive Google search for different lock assemblies and found one that uses the same exact piece. You only use this one piece out of the new kit.
Best part is that it comes from Amazon with free next day shipping. Can you beat that?

Cheers and see you on the road!

I literally just a few minutes ago bought another used door lock assembly, after mine has failed for the 2nd time. I'm ordering this kit just to keep in stock! Thanks for this tip.
