Boxster 987 Headlamp change from RHD to LHD

Boxster 987 Headlamp change from RHD to LHD

Hi there,

I am new in here and need your help!

I bought a 987 S with Xenon lights in the UK and take her back to Germany and there I need to adjust the headlamp to LHD.

The Porsche dealer in Germany say I find this in the handbook how to do it? There should be a switch inside but I did not see him until now and I don't want to brake the Xenon lamps......

I had a look at the English one and I did not found any thing in there.

I hope that someone of you have the 987 manual to send me a copy of the DIY change from the headlamps???

Cheers and thank you for your help,

Hi Volker.

First you need to remove the headlamp from the front of the car. There is a metal tool for doing this in the tool kit in the front luggage trunk behind the cover where the warning triangle is located. To remove the headlight you need to open the front hood and remove the rubber bung in the bulkhead next to each headlight. Insert the tool and rotate by 90 degrees and the headlight will become free to remove. Take the headlight out and remove the 4 screws on the rear cover. Looking inside the headlight you will see a small metal tag on the rear of the headlamp reflector, next to the tag are two stamped letters O and T. O is set for the country of origin (in this case RHD ) T is for touring (IE LHD). You need to move the lever/ tag on both headlights to the T setting.
