Broke Headlight Trays

Recommended Posts

I was having trouble getting my headlights out to change the bulbs and realized the tool was stripped, so I used a socket. Both headlights were hard to get out, but both came out without crazy effort, but when they did, the broke the headlight mounting plates and the rod that holds the headlights in is not secured in the plastic anymore. I looked up the part numbers - 99663104100 & 99663104200 but I'm not sure how hard they are to replace. I tried the torq bolts on on one of the plates but couldn't get it free and I'm leary of breaking something else now. Any ideas on how to fix or how much my overpriced dealer will charge to fix?

Yes, I had to replace both plates - the left was available OEM (Bosch) and for about $70 and the right was Genuine Porsche $155 - though they were absolutely identical other than the orientation. The plates went in very easily and I got the headlights installed again. I had a very bad (first) experience with Auto Atlanta who everyday for two weeks told me that the second half of my order (the right mounting plate) had shipped despite being told that everything was in stock when I ordered. They gave me the runaround and charged me about $40 more in shipping than I was quoted. I would never use them again.
