Botched Boxster Headlight Replacement

Recommended Posts

To make a long story short I recently replaced the drivers side low beam headlight in my 1999 Boxster (just the lamp). In the process of replacing the headlight assembly in the fender I heard a loud crack and discovered I had broken the plastic retainer for the removal lever and the retainer for the main headlight plug assembly. Anyway I managed to McIver the thing to get it back in place but I really need to replace the plastic assembly in the fender that holds the headlight and it's power connector.

Is anyone able to help me source this thing. I have googled it but can't find anything.

I think what you are looking for is the headlight mounting plate. The part #'s are 996.631.041.00 for the left side and 996.631.042.00 for the right. Pelican Parts has 'em for about $70 each.

Did you check to make sure you didn't break the engagement hook off the bottom of the headlight?
