Q: Headlights

asked by on

Will 1996 Porsche boxter headlights fit 2000 boxter

Hello, thank you for writing in. Without knowing the sub-model, and if you are replacing the entire headlight assembly, it is difficult to say. While some 2000 Boxster headlight assemblies do fit 1999-2004 models, it does not cover 1996 models. If you have both the vehicles available to you, you can always do a visual inspection of them to see if they are the same shape and size. You will also want to make sure the mounting bolts will align on both sets. The last determining factor is the electrical connection. You will want to make sure the older versions will make a clean connection. For more help replacing the headlights, contact our service department.
