2002 996 Headlight; Plastic Oval Chrome Trim Piece?

Recommended Posts

Hello to all,
I am looking for a part for my right headlight. It's the plastic chrome looking oval plug that sits in the middle of a 2002 911 headlight assembly. It snaps in and out easily, but, the plastic prongs on the back of mine broke.
I've attached a few pix to show what I'm talking about.
It is stamped as part number 153 034-00, however, that doesn't seem to come up with anything when I search. I've made some calls and people seem to only want to sell this piece with the entire headlight assembly--which is obviously a pricey fix.
Does anyone know the name of this piece?
Does anyone know where to find a replacement?
Thanks in advance!

Suncoast Porsche does sell that part separately. I bought two last year. There is a stem attached that fits into the nozzle on the headlight. Other dealers told me I had to buy the entire assembly for over 200 bucks per side. Suncoast took care of for 40 bucks a piece. Just explain to them that you just need the trim piece.

Easy install. I had my wife activate the washer. The nozzle will shoot out and you have to grab it to hold it out long enough to slide the new trim cap with stem on.

Just a quick clarification. A male stem, with teeth, is attached to the cover disc. Odds are, that stem is still in the car. The disc typically breaks off from the stem. Remove the male stem from the female one in the washer assembly the push on the new one.

Your new part will be the silver disc with the male stem with teeth already attached. Hope that makes sense. Don't settle for the dealer saying they can't get the part. Suncoast can.

New to this Forum and to P cars, I have a '04 CS4. So this plastic chrome piece hides the headlight washer? My manual didnt cover this

in fact I believe it stated it had someting to do with aiming the fog light. So if this is a stupid ? i should already know the answer to.

All replies are appreciated. Thx
