Removing Headlights on Boxster


Recommended Posts

I have a problem in that my headlights are stuck. The bolt that you are supposed to be able to

twist to unlock the headlight seems to have recessed into the fixture. Someone local told me that

the locking fixture was probably broken inside.

So, is there any other way to get the headlight out, short of breaking it! It looks like removing

the fender would do it, but that seems like a fairly complicated task. Any ideas? If removing

the fender is the only way in, then instructions/guidelines would be appreciated.

Oh yeah, all I really need to do is replace a bulb (low beam).

Thanks in advance...

Try a 5 mm six point socket as sometimes the factory tool is a sloppy fit.. Also make sure you turn the tool in the correct direction. Clockwise to unlock the passenger side and counter on the drivers I seem to remember. It takes some effort.
