Wife got this message driving the CTT today. I did some preliminary research and it appears it could be a bulb or potentially the housing for the bulb itself.

Does anyone have any experience fixing these at all?

Exactly. Sometimes the contacts burn and the housing needs to be replaced.
Pro rednech hacker tip coming from someone owning two cayennes - use tin foil to repair the burned out contacts, it saves you around $400.

Finally got around to working on this today and wow, what should have been easy turned into more confusion for me.

The manual says the bulb to use is an H11. This is anything but an H11 as the plug is completely different!

What I don't understand is how to get this bulb out. In the first picture I am using the arrow to point to what I believe to be the cornering light. Is that correct?

If so then in the second picture you can see what it looks like with the red arrow. How the heck do I remove this?!? The second light with the yellow arrow is I believe the auxiliary high beam which is easy to remove. But the right arrow is the bulb that I think I should be removing and I can't figure out how to do it.

Anyone have any ideas? Again 2011 Turbo.

Thanks I'll bring the bulb but it sure seems like this isn't the right one.

Look forward to meeting soon!

Definitely looks more straightforward on a 955/957. Hmm, I'll be interested to see the result......I know it's only a matter of time before my wife calls me and says "my car is beeping again".

Enjoy the meet up. Wish the norcal contingent here was a little more social in the real world.

Very helpful! This was a pain to replace and shouldn't be that difficult. Porsche designed these to be hard to work with as the main bulb is simple but this cornering light is a hassle.

Tim would have gotten it done for me but I had the wrong bulb because it was different than what was mentioned in the manual. Thankfully it's done and should be good for many more years.
