Good advice!!!I wouldn`t be surprised if some tech`s forget to include it since a tool kit like that is usually included during PDI`s if not right from the dealer. ON that note anyone who hasn`t taken delivery of a 718 as yet should double check. Better to check now than to find out when you most need it.
I am glad you bring this up. I'm getting Xpel put on my Boxster when it comes in April. I will have to ask the installer about this.The paint protection (Xpel) shop said that they have done many Caymans. The installer said that they remove the headlights so that they can wrap the film behind the headlight. He thought that the tool for removing the headlights was going to be in the included toolkit. That's why I started this thread.
Wait until I tell him that the bumper cover has to be removed to get the headlight out on 2017 Cayman/Boxster.
No way I going to let them remove the bumper cover on my car!
Bumping this old thread.I was reading the 718 technical manual. The headlights are now screwed to the body frame. The front bumper must be removed to remove the headlights. Its shame, the old design with the tool was way better.
I'd be really interested in the DIY bumper removal.In reference to the bumper removal;
I have since had the front bumper off.
I will be making a DIY post when I get a few free moments.
Regarding a technical service manual, I haven't found anything yet.
Great upgrade but just be aware you come in from the wheel wells. No need to remove the bumper for the HID 35W upgrade.I'll be doing my headlights soon. I have the 35w lamps, ballasts and new cables for doing so. I just need the time to do it I'll post back with some pics during the process.
