WTB: Headlight Removal "Tool" for 97 Boxster

Hi folks,

I misplaced the tool and need to replace one of the bulbs. Dealership sells it with the tool kit but not separate - cheaper to drive it in and have them service the lights.

Thank you,
Marty

Pretty sure it's just a 5mm hex, you can use any normal long 5mm hex bit that'll reach in there.

Several options.
  1. Buy a 5mm 6 point socket from your local store.
  2. Buy the tool from an online vendor such as ECSTuning (I didn't see them at Pelican Parts - The forum sponsor.)
  3. PM me and I'll send you a used (with a little corrosion) one for $10 shipped.
  4. Itsnotanova - AKA Woody - probably has a box of them. http://986forum.com/forums/boxster-parts-sale-wanted/52469-parting-out-whole-lot-boxsters.html
