engine bay light

Recommended Posts

So here's a strange one for y'all.

Friend was over last night. He has a boxter but he came in his wife's car.

Anyway, hew was admiring my car and when he looked into the engine bay the

first thing he said was where's the light. Search me I said? I have had the car

almost 4 years and I guess since its never had one I didn't know it's supposed to be there.

So my question is where is the light supposed to be in the rear engine bay?

Why would it be missing? Probably forgot to add it on the manufacturing line.

Pictures would be cool. Part numbers and wiring diag would be even better.

The light is attached to the outside of the circular fan frame on the engine compartment lid, at about the 5:00 position, sticking out to the right. Perhaps the bulb burned out--the clear bulb cover faces straight down, so it's easy to miss if the bulb doesn't light.

Thanks Poursha. I checked it and I see the connector but no light.

No wonder I never missed it tucked under that fan housing. Just a completely empty slot where the light should be.

Loren I need to order this. The wiring is there and I checked with a voltmeter andpower is there at the connector. Any ideas on part number?
