||To install the headlight modules, if you have done the wiring change,
then just plug the new wire into the socket on the module. If not, just go to the next
step and slide the module in.
||Then slide the module into the car. Be careful that the rubber cap on
the bottom side doesn't rub against the bumper. It will leave a mark that you can easily
rub off, but no need to risk it.
Then you just use the tool to lock the light module
in. I wish there were a way to check to be sure that it is installed properly, but there
isn't. Porsche's only advice is to listen for a popping sound when it locks in place. I
can tell you from experience that this sound is not always a reliable indicator. Shortly
after installing this, I drove around town and when I hit the brakes aggressively, the
right headlight module shot out of the car and down the street. That's a BAD thing. I have
no advice at this time except to be careful. Good luck!
After doing all of this work, don't
forget to change the fuses! Fuses A9 and A10 need to be
15 amp fuses. Mine came that way, but it seems that some cars come with 7.5 amp fuses. I
don't know why there's a difference, but Porsche's instructions are clear. Also field
reports from others who have corresponded with me verify that the 7.5 amp fuses will blow.
Change them now before turning anything on.
My car had some special problems. The right side was not
assembled properly after some body work was done. I had to rebuild the mounting plate. You
should not normally need to do this, but if you do, you might save some head scratching by
