Switching Porsche 911 to LED Lights
One of the most amazing changes we've made to the car is to switch over to LED tailights. The change over was very easy.
We purchased Spyder Auto ALT-ON-P99699-LED-RC Porsche 996 Red/Clear LED Tail Light
They were delivered within a week, and were packed/boxed such that there was no damage.
Only one minor modification was needed to make the lights work and took about 5 minutes to do with a Dremel
The new unit required only one minor modification, the notching of plastic. This photo is of a light insertion hole on the new unit. Notice it has 2 notches in it.
The original unit's same light hole is shown. Notice it has 3 notches? So the new one had to be notched to match.
To wire in the new unit, I (Bill) decided to pull the old unit out of the car but leave it wired. Then I put the new unit next to it, and transferred one light or wire at a time. With each movement, the lights were checked to ensure I didn't screw anything up.
The unit purchased did not have any instructions, so the use of logical deduction was applied to figure out what went where. For the wires that are questionable, look carefully at the sockets inside of the unit to figure out what goes were.
Here is the back end of the car, with the old light assembly and new LED light assembly installed.
Damn! The result looks SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO good. :) Well worth it.
