  1. Follow-on question for this: 1. my regulator is broken in the down position, which means I can’t access the front of the regulator mounting bolt. The lower nut holding the window is basically inaccessible; it’s a very tight gap and because of the rubber and such I can’t get an angle on the nut. The regulator is sufficiently stuck that I can’t pull the window up by hand. Any pointers? 2. I lost a wrench down the side of the body and it seems to have gone under the rear seats. Any pointers on getting it back?
  2. Good news: the damaged headlight module arrived this past week and I was able to disassemble it today. For some reason about half of the pictures I took couldn't attach here, so I made an album on imgur. Bad news: the rainbow-shaped piece that looked pretty flat is bowed towards the vehicle rear, and will be much harder to replace than I had hoped. I'd like to control the LED position and orientation, so I'll likely end up with a generally more complicated part, instead of starting with a flat piece of sheet metal and bending it to fit (and adding some semblance of heat sinking).
  3. I hate to necro something after 6 years, but Sandy's guide misses a couple things for some combination of 996.2, cabriolet, and bixenon. There isn't a connector on vehicle-right of the trunk There is a giant Bosch box labeled "Leuchtweitenregulierung" (aka headlight angle adjustment control) Don't be alarmed: the wire to splice to is still the black with green stripe, but you'll need to unwrap enough of the wiring harness to pull said wire away from the bundle sufficiently to use your splicing method of choice.
  4. Hi all, I'm in the midst of designing a DRL setup for my 996.2 (which is a topic I recognize has been done to death). That said, I'm not a fan of LED light bars, and while I don't mind halos, this is a Porsche, not a BMW. Therefore, I'm taking inspiration from the Four Point Principle. I'm using 8x total Luxeon Star 10mm square LED blocks, neutral white, with 10mm square Carclo 10415 elliptical-pattern lenses, and a 350mA FlexBlock on each side. DRLs should be on the order of 400 lumen per side and 1500Cd at the center, so I'll be using slightly lower currents than the
