Porsche Repair for $1.00

My 2001 Headlight corner lense fell off due to age as the backing had dry rot.

Buy a new one for $62.99 + shipping, or go to the dollar store for Super-glue Gel; has to be Gel for $1.07. FIXED!

OEM super glue would cost $11.17.

i broke mine almost 4 years ago. "fixed" it with super glue. it's still there after 40k miles and 4 years, even after taking the headlight out and putting it back in 3, maybe 4 times.

I prefer Hot Glue as if you need to you can remove them later...and no stuck fingers!

+1 to Tony Carreon for the super glue fix. I did the same when I broke mine.
