Tail lights for sale

Recommended Posts

I recently had to buy a pair of tail lights for my 2000 Cab in order to get the one I needed. As a result of this deal, I have 2 extra tail lights in my garage:

1. Photo on right: a perfect, "like new" unit for the right side. No amber as in the 1999 unit. This one is OEM from 2000 to at least 2003, I believe. Do your own check first to be sure. 996.631.416.00. New from Porsche: $600. Like new on eBay: $250. From me: $150 + shipping.

2. Photo on left: an almost perfect unit for the left side. Same description as above, 996.631.415.00. but a small triangle, approximately 1/2" on a side, is missing on the bottom, inside corner (next to the engine hood) See photo. This is the perfect part for an owner with a ruined left tail light, but a limited budget with which to replace it. $50 + shipping. If you don't like it, you can send it back for a refund, but you pay shipping both ways.

PM me for more pics and/or details.

Yes, I am sure of the part #. Factory yellow parts tags are on both my old and new tail lights. If yours says "496, perhaps you have a turbo. I believe that body style uses a different tail light unit.

Its a mystery for which I have no explanation. Could it make a difference that my MY00 is a cab?

When I google 996.631.416.00, I get returns that state "2003 996 tail light" as well as Pelican Parts ads saying "996 01 and up Passenger Side Tail Light Assembly".

My car is an MY 00 Cab, never in the body shop (where something else might have been installed) ... and each of the original units has a yellow Valeo tag affixed with the part numbers I listed above.

The two new (to me) units that I have come from an MY 02, and have the exact same yellow tags.

I believe that is a "sub-assembly" part number tag - not the whole light.

Certainly could be. I examined both units closely and found no typical part numbers among those embossed in the black plastic (other than bulb IDs). Also, there is no way in which I can see the unit could be broken down further.

Oh well, the German's love a mystery, I guess.

KimI'm interested in the right side tail light for my '04 C2. Could you post a pic of the back side of the light?

Yes. I'm traveling today, but will get it up by tonight. Will also email it directly to you if you PM me an email address.
