Litronic installation on '98 996

Recommended Posts


Can anyone offer some advice?:

I've just purchased some Litronic headlights to retrofit to my '98 996 - After some initial trouble with the light spanner (it seems slightly too big..) I managed to get the lights out.

On putting the Litronics back in, I've only been able to get the 'side-lights' working.

I've noticed from other postings that this can be a problem with the connectors within the car. Can anyone recommend any kind of cleaner to clean the connectors?

Any good electronics contacts cleaner should work fine. Also, make sure that none of the pins have pushed out of the connector socket in the car. This sometimes happens on older cars and the pin lock usually needs to be bent back out a little to keep the pin in the socket.

When you retrofit the litronics you are supposed to put in 15 amp fuses if the car does not already have them.

I am on the UK message boards and they say a lit retrofit is a problem because of your MOT inspecion and the need for washers and suspension level sensors. They even say you cannot buy the kit from your OPC for these reasons. Jeff

Thanks guys,

And Jeff - you're right - I guess they will fail an MOT test in the UK (I haven't got either the automatic leveling or the washers - don't know if it is possible to get a washer kit.)

I guess I will be putting the originals back in for my yearly test!
