Stuck headlight Assembly

Recommended Posts

I need to change the turn signal lamp. When I insert the tool to release the assembly, it will not turn. Any ideas as to why the mechanism won't turn, and how to remove the assembly?

I'm not sure  why it would jam like that. It's possible that the plastic tray that the cam (the part that the wrench tool connects to) rides in is broken and the cam is jammed up under the light unit. You may want to remove the wheel and plastic wheel well liner and see if you can shine a light in from the wheel well side and see what's going on. The part I'm speaking of is # 16 in the following drawing  http://www.autoatlanta.com/porsche-parts/hardparts.php?dir=996-99-05&section=905-01  Good Luck

Are you turning it the right way?  If you use a T bar with a 5mm socket the top of the wrench turns towards the back of the car.  There are quite a few videos on YouTube and here's one:

If you do use a socket, tape the socket to the driver bar so that it doesn't fall out inside.
