Litnonic Headlights

Not sure what the problem is

Near Side (LEFT) Main beam headlight not working

Checked the Fuse - OK

Replaced the Bulb


I think its the connector as the Indicator did not work till I removed the Light Unit and put it back
Am I right in saying the connector is the one that is fixed to the Body

Any other Ideas please

Will try WD40 or a connection cleaner
 
The unit has a separate  connector that unclips and another that is fixed to the body at the back of the light unit

It does not seem to be fixed properly and may move back when the light unit is refitted
 
There are two yellow clips and I am not sure how these are removed to unclip the connector from the body?

    I had a problem with my indicator not working on my lights then started to work again.  It was caused by the locking bar below the light having had the hex head stripped which meant it was not locking in place and was allowing the light to move forward.  A simple job to replace and not expensive from Porsche for the bar.
    If that's not it, hopefully someone else has an idea.

    Yes I am sure its something like this
    The light pushes into a fixed connector and the near side one doesn't look as far forward as the offside
     
    Looking at it today
    Will have to remove the wheel and underside wheel arch cover maybe even the PU

    Will advise

    THANKS

    Removed the wheel and the Underside wheel arch cover Pushed the light socket into the headlight and at all works
    (Found my TRack rod end rubber was damaged so not exactly a waste of time)

    I can see how you remove the socket from its holder so I can make sure it can be retitted has any body any idea how it can be removed there are two yellow clips

    Thanks
