Welcome everyone to another installment highlighting the wonderful world of fragile Porsche parts!
Have both 17" and 18" wheels and have recently lost the metal Center Cap logo medallion off of one wheel of each size.
While removing the other center caps every remaining medallion fell right off in my hand.
Metal medallion secured with a random dab of some type of adhesive.
We have reached the end of lifespan of whatever adhesive the Center Cap supplier used to keep precious colored metal medallions stuck to those cheap plastic caps.
Anyone know how to remove old adhesive?
Anyone have any idea what adhesive to replace it with?
Anyone know how much the Porsche/Piech families made selling replacement center caps last year?
Remember when paying through the nose for your precious replacement Center Caps that the Porsche and Piech families are the 7th wealthiest oligarchs in the world per Wikipedia.

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?
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
Hi - I am looking for some help. The headlights are the litronic ones.
I don't drive the car very often - maybe once a month and often this is in the daylight.
I had a headlight globe 'fail' about 12 months ago. I replaced it and everything seemed good. Then it stopped working. Then it started working. Then both headlights stopped working - some of the time. I am beginning to think that this is possibly not a globe problem.
