Hi,

 

I've searched the forum and couldn't find an answer and am posting here for your help.  Let me know if this isn't the right place for this question.

 

I'm  searching for my first 911 and am confused about the headlights.  On one 911 targa (2002) the options sticker does not list Litronic headlights but the owner and ppi shop said it does.  Another 2002 targa lists the option on the sticker.

 

Do some 2002s have Litronic/bi-xenon headlights as standard equipment?

Regards,

Mike

FWIW.  My 2002 Targa includes code 601 in the option list (Litronic Headlights).  I'm pretty sure it is possible to install Litronic headlights afterwards so the car might just have been upgraded later.  But they aren't cheap.

A 2002 would have Litronics, either from the factory or as an aftermarket kit that Porsche offered at the time which was very popular.   If the car bears the 601 code, the Lits should be factory and include auto leveling and diagnostic capabilities, while the aftermarket units would have auto fill in (low beams swing up to fill in the high beams) but no auto level or diagnostics.  This can be verified during a PPI.

      My drivers' side headlight was replaced by the dealership after an accident. It has worked fine for two years since, but recently decided to stop working. I get a "check dipped beam" message on the cluster as a result. The turn signals work, as does a single little light on the outer side of the assembly. The main and high beam do not.
       
      After taking it out to inspect, I noticed that the electrical harness connector on the back was the problem. When I could force it into the headlights socket, the lights all powered up and worked fine, as did the high beam. So a poor connection is the culprit.
       
      One of the tabs on the side of the white connector was broken off, so the connector wiggles in its place. I imagine that the force of the headlight being pushed back wiggled it just enough that it wouldnt' seat into the headlight assembly. But getting that white connector into the socket and then back into its place without being able to get my hand in from the rear of the light was not apparent.  I also noted that the insulation on all the wires was terribly frayed and coming off in my hands as I examined it.
       
      But with a new connector in hand, I don't see how to wiggle the old one out. It slides in from the side on the back of the tray holding the headlight assembly, but is blocked from sliding out all the way.
       
      How do I rectify this?

      If you have a 996 Targa you'll know that the little rubber piece that covers the rear glass' latch tends to degrade and fall apart. I designed a replacement piece that you can 3D print. Just make sure that you use PETG or ABS plastic so it doesn't melt when your car is sitting out in the sun. I'll probably get some filler primer and some matte black paint to make it match the rest of the trim, but I think it turned out pretty well.

      I don't know how much a genuine replacement costs, but it was a fun little exercise for me.

      Hello
      Im working on a unique porsche project and as part of it im looking to use the current (>2016) generation 95B Macan LED HeadLights. 
      What im looking for is the Wiring Diagram from the service manual program, so i can trace what needs to be connected to where relative to my 997.1 wiring harness.
      Yes, im aware this will be difficult. Im not looking to just plug and play.
      I already have all the wiring for the 997.1 and 997.2 cars (and a few others)
      Can anyone help
       
      Regards

      This is a vid that shows removal of a Panamera headlight.  Easy but useful to refer to, by those not frequent to fixing vehicles themselves.  Can definitely save money here by DIY.

      Hey everyone! I’m not sure if this is the right place to post this but here’s my problem!
      So I have two problems both I would love to fix
      1. When driving at low speeds (specifically 13 MPH) my engine; or what sounds like my engine, makes an awful grinding/ whining noise. The noise goes away after I switch from first to second.
      2. When driving sometimes it makes a similar noise but is seems to happen when the car is cold and specifically during acceleration. 
      Thanks for the help!
