Loren Help!! Headlight Question

Recommended Posts

I was fortunate enough (???) to pick up a pair of Litronic lights for my boxster for $300. The passenger side headlight housing is cracked but all the internals are fine. Can i use the housing from my standard clear boxster lights and tranfer the litronic internals. Also a parst diagram would be of great help. Thanks

Hope you don't mind me chiming in on this one. First off, $300 for a set of Lits is great. I got my very lightly used set for $1000 with all original wiring unsued still in the wrappers and the original parts boxes.

Are you replacing '03 lights? If you're intending on using pre-'03 housings then you're going to have one amber headlight and one clear one. The Lits are amber-free on the outside lower (signal light) portion whereas the pre-'03 ones have that part a solid amber. That is also contingent upon whether you can swap out housings.

Good luck.

theres a way supra guys use to clean the inside of their headlights when dirty.....placing the entire unit in a pre heated over.....350?for about 15 minutes and loosening up the glue to take the lights apart....should work for ours too.....i'll try to find the post....

heres what i have:

I've helped cleaning out many headlights for local supras down here in SoCal. The discoloration you see is inside the headlights usally...in some cases outside only. The procedure requires popping your lights into the oven for about 5 minutes at low temperature (be careful or you will damage the light), then removing the plastic casing. From there, you need to polish the plastic with a good plastic polish and scratch remover. Using the right product is important, you don't want to be leaving scratches and nicks on the plastic surface. Use a product such as Novus, Plexus, or Meguiar's plastic cleaner/conditioner. You will certainly want to use Novus, as it will leave the final surface very clean and shiny. A high speed polisher will save you a lot of time and effort. Although, it can be done by hand and some elbow grease.

Websites that carry the Novus and Plexus are listed below. You can also find them at other websites by doing a search for 'novus plastic cleaner' or 'plexus plastic cleaner.'

Novus: http://www.noscratch.com/novus/form.shtml

Plexus: http://www.plexusplasticcleaner.com/

Silicone/RTV sealant: can be bought at local car parts stores for about $3 in a small tube.

Sand paper: use 2000Grit paper, and wetsand the outside of the headlights using a soapy water solution. Your headlights will be crystal clear and smooth. Also, follow up by buffing the sanded surface with the plastic polish/cleaner.

Oven Temperature: about 175-200F for about 5-10 mins, depending on the actual temperature of the oven. Leave the headlights in there until they are somewhat warm to the touch. Start at one end of the headlight, and use a dull object such as a butter knife of dull screwdriver to separate the headlights.

good luck
