    Okay, here's a tough one. The black plastic surround that surrounds the latch release handle on the 308 (mine's a '79) for the rear deck lid - is this the same black surround that is used for the release for the front trunk?

    I have checked the parts diagrams for this car. The front surround appears to be a separate black plastic piece, and is still available. The rear black plastic piece appears to be sold with the rear handle?

    Anyone know if these are the same?

    According to my parts catalog, they are only available as a one piece unit. The only part that is sold seperately is the gasket that fits under the front latch. Ferrari wants $151.18 for a new one. I also see that they are two different stock numbers (front & back). Hope this helps.

    Wayne,
    Why are you asking? (Suspect you've got a cracked or broken surround).

    Tell me what you're dealing with. Unobtainium Supply may be able to make you one. We specialize in making plastic parts that are 'unavailable'.
