Anyone know how to replace visor mirror lights?


Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

I just bought a used 2001 Boxster (my very first Porsche) a couple of weeks ago. When I brought it back home, I noticed that the lights on the passenger-side visor mirror do not work! I read the Boxster manual and combed the web for instructions on how to replace these lights and found none.

Can anyone who has experience with this help me out? I am trying to see if I can DIY before sending the car to Porsche dealer for a fix. It seems like a simple job, but I may be wrong.

Thanks!

It is a simple job.probably it's the blown fuse or bulb

using a small, skinny screw driver U will need to unclip mirror insert.

Hmmm...never thought of checking out the fuse first. That may be the issue. Will check it out tonight or this weekend when I get a chance and will update this thread! Thanks, juniinc!!!

If u need further assistance there is a sun visor removal thread by Loren on the 4th Technical page, well explained direction is also there.

Good luck

Thanks again, juniinc! I took a look at the fuse layout tonight, and there was none specifically assigned to the passenger-side visor mirror light. The driver's side visor lights still work fine. In this case, I don't think it's the fuse problem.

I've read Loren's explanation on removing the visor and also took a look my visor mirror insert assembly. Still not sure how to get it out though, and since it's pretty dark already, I don't think I dare try to pry out anything right now without risking the chance of breaking something. I wish Loren posted some pictures along with his explanation.

Hi Loren,

Thank you vey much! I was tracing through several chains of postings and finally go to the same page URL that you recommended. :) I should have read a little deeper this afternoon. The diagrams and pictures you posted are very helpful. I am going to give it a try the next several days, now that I have a visual plan. Thanks again! Greatly appreciate this!
