I Need Help Changing Out Headlamps and Front Fog Lamps

Recommended Posts

Hello I have a 97 Boxster, I bought it because, it was the first year they came out with the boxster. Now i guess everyhing of wear and tear is breaking down. As much money as i put in to it from buying and getting serviced, im halfway to paying for a 2011 boxster, LOL. My front right head lamp burned out and my left fog lamp has burned out too. Can somone help me and show or teach me how to replace without going to the dealership and paying a grip of cash, thank you.

The relacement bulbs are the same for both. They are H7 (55 watt) bulb. You can pick them up at any auto parts store like AutoZone, NAPA etc.

In the front trunk is usually a tool kit, actually a roll up pouch (somewhere around the spare tire or under cover for the spare) that contains the OEM wrench that came with the car that is used to pop the light out. If you don't have the wrench it is a 5mm size socket. The link that Loren gave you (page 218) above will explain how to pop the light out with the wrench.

Good to see a fellow Washingtonian on Renntech. Are you from Tacoma or from Snohomish County?

Thank you, yes im in TACOMA. Thank you for the help, i do have the manual and will look for that wrench


If you can't find the little wrench that came with the tool kit, you can get a small socket set at Sears. All you really need is a 5mm socket and a short extension, and it has to have small "shoulders" so that it fits in the hole. A 1/4 inch drive set should fit with no problem, and it will lessen the chance that you will round off the "bolt" head.

You can get a complete small set of these 1/4 inch sockets, complete with ratchet and small extension for less than $20 at Sears (item # 934861), here: http://www.sears.com...0&prop17=934861

Also, make sure that you are going into the correct rubber-flap covered hole as there are a few in that area. If you look closely at the photo in the manual, you can't miss.

Regards, Maurice.
