How to remove Porsche 996 Headlights? Porsche 911 Litronic Headlight Removal
If you have a UK Porsche 996 Carrera with litronic headlights then you can remove the headlights easily using the instructions below. This may also work for removing standard Porsche 996 headlights.
When I removed the headlights on my Porsche 996 Carrera I found that the Litronic units were set to the T (Tourist) mode rather than the default for the UK. It would explain why I thought that the lights weren't that bright for night driving as the beam was being partially obscurred by the internal mechanism.

At some point a previous owner has presumably driven in Europe but forgotten to reset the lights to the O setting on their return so as soon as I get back switching the Litronic units from T to O will be the first thing on my To Do list!
