    Breakesr?
    There is one near here that breaks DBs, they advertise in Dealer magazine.
    Phone number is 07746187575.
    There is probably someone much nearer to you than this, but give it a try tomorrow.
    I remember Dad broke one on the 996 which was the non Q cab model and we got a sh one for it.

    Same thing happened to me on a series Landrover whilst doing a 9 point turn in a narrow country lane:cry: (fortunately within 100 yds of my garage)
    I welded it & it worked for years until I came to my senses & sold the bloody thing.
