How to mask RHD headlamps for right hand traffic

Recommended Posts

This DIY is only for RHD pre-face lift 996 or 986 cars driven in countries where traffic drives on the right. In those countries it is necessary to mask your RHD headlamps so that oncoming traffic is not blinded by your headlamps. In most EEC coutries it is "compulsary" to mask your headlamps and on-the-spot fines may be given to RHD cars that do not comply with this regulation.

If you have Litronic lamps then you do not need to apply this DIY. Your vehicles user manual will tell you how to configure the lamps for driving on the right or left. Otherwise you will have to purchase or make these masking stickers.

Porsche sell a set (2) of these masking stickers. Part # 996.631.137.00

While they are only £20 to purchase, they are only stickers and are very easy to make.

I suggest you choose a stcking material that you can easily peel off when you return your car to LHD traffic. Unlike the ones supplied by Porsche which are a real pain to get off!

The two pictures provide the measurements of the masking stickers and where they are placed.

The scan is real size and you should be able to simply print it off (twice) to make your stickers.
