This problem remains perplexingly odd.  The car's computer system show no faults, yet it seems to be registering a fault on the instrument display.  If you had a headlight servo motor issue, where should be faults, if wiring was shorted or disconnected, there should be faults.  But there aren't any.

You guys are awesome, i took it to a place and we are missing #18 from the back diagram that JFP put in the thread.


I need the part number, they will install it and we are golden!


If anyone can help me that would be awesome.

It looks like 6 and 7. I tend to over buy and then return if needed. Especially on cheap parts like the connectors that seem to be broken here. If you speak the the parts department and show them the pictures you should be fine. Also you can search the internet for 997 Katalog and you will be able to find a diagram of all of the parts along with part numbers.

i just do not know what part to buy! I think it is the other side from the one we are thinking


Call Sunset, tell them which side you need (although I think one fits both sides) and they will confirm what you need.

Looking at the photo again, you might be correct, which would explain why the car has no codes (the sensor is still connected electrically but not mechanically).  If that is the case, the part is a $5 "support", 99634137103.

unreal, bought the part had it installed and the stupid failure still appears!


Any ideas?  I also had the tires replaced and was getting the TPM warning and thought that was it,but got that fixed and still the failure of headlinghts still there?


Perhaps a fuse? anyone knows which one to look at?

      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

      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.

      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.
      Any suggestions?
