FS: a Pair of Headlight Weather Seals
 
These were removed from my original 2001 Boxster S headlights. The rubber is in great shape and the bonded plastic reinforcements at the ends are in perfect shape. I carefully removed them to make sure I didn't tear any of the mounting holes.

Part number on the right one is: 996.631.172.00
Part number on the left one is: 996.631.171.00

Porsche doesn't sell these separately (they are sold as part of the headlight). I searched the internet and no one seems to have used ones so I have no idea what to ask for them. I thought I'd throw them on here and take offers.

Shipping would be very cheap, they weigh practically nothing.

Any money I get from selling these will go towards what I had to spend to repair my car from the accident I had last month.

I'll tell you what they worth:

I've checked: Cheapest I found for the two-part injection mold for the left here in SH (small shop price) is $3000 and the right is $500. Min order is 500pcs each which is dead cheap anyway but regardless, add x1,000 rubbers and the order is minimum $6,500. So....

Anyone who are going to get these "unique" rubber for <$6,499 is a winner :D

Bird dog I am right here in Marietta and need these for some nine8six headlights I bought over two years ago and haven't installed because I need the seals. Can you PM me a price and maybe we can meet today/this weekend ?

I'll pm my offer also just in case.

The big question is why these seals are in such good shape? They are 15 years old and should have turned all goopy by now.

BirdDog 08-21-2016 11:44 AM

The headlight seals have been sold.

rfuerst911sc 08-21-2016 12:05 PM

Yep snagged these today thanks Bill. I have no idea why these are in such great shape but they are . Now what should I treat/coat them with so they stay that way ?
