996TT broken tail light base

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

Today, I noticed that both rear tail lights had a broken the plastic bracket base. Apparently the screws were so tight that cracked the plastic base. There's any solution for this or I had to replace the entire tail light?

Thanks for the help!

Haven't seen that happen before unless... over-torqued or someone hit the car from behind.

Sorry, you can only order the whole lens assembly from Porsche ( MSRP $540 each) or try a salvage yard for a good set of used lens.

wow....okay....so I would wait then for the led tail light to come out. In the mid time I'll look some glue <_<

Thanks, Loren!

Similar issue here. My guess is that it happened during some of my... trackdays. When the group gathers to listen at an instructor's speech, people often sit (or lean) on the car's comfy hips. Some probably don't really pay attention and might sit on the light itself, which of course might damage it. Just a guess...

You can use modeling plastic and putty and form or reinforce the broken areas. Takes time and patience but definitely doable and a heck of a lot less expensive. I also use rubber washers to help prevent over torqueing

Hoping for a release soon.

The Light Savers are in production and a batch of "Lucky-13" will be placed on eBay Monday afternoon.  A link to the listing will be posted here on 6speed. Once the initial 13 promotionally priced units are gone, the Light Savers can be purchased from my website www.ycccdiy.com for the regular price of $79.95. Those who get the promo "Thank You" price please post  pics and reviews of product for others to see. We already have some happy customers:
 
 
 
Thank you
