You do have to remove the drain tubes in order to get the housing out, but it will still wobble around even with the tube still installed.

There isn't anything else holding the housing in other than the seal around the perimeter. Perhaps your PO glued the seal.

I just pulled on the sides of the housing, and the seal let go. I still need to get the harness disconnected, however.

Does anyone know the part number for the long seal that goes underneath both housings and the "PORSCHE" lens?

Should be 911 503 085 05.

EDIT: Assuming you're asking about your '86.

That's it, thanks.

Also, does anyone know the difference between "Tail Lamp Bulb - 12-volt, 21-watt" and "Tail Lamp Bulb (12-volt, 21/5-watt)" on 1986 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe - Lights and Lenses - Page 2 ?

Hi, the 21.5 - 1157 - is a brake light bulb. The other, 21 is a 1156 tail light bulb.

Got it, thanks.

Also, I want to reiterate the importance of taping the bumper before taking the housing out. I thought I would be gentle and that would be enough to avoid scratches. Now I have a scratched bumper.

Cool No problems with replacement

After reading the blogs I had significant concerns about starting the replacement of lenses and gaskets. After reading several different threads, I got started and everything went perfectly...screws came out without issues, assembly was in good shape and gaskets were replaced without issues. Gaskets were 30+ years old, but total time to replace both sets was less than an hour. I suspect I was lucky! Only issue was one drain tube was pretty deteriorated.

Thanks to all who have shared their knowledge regarding the difficult tedious task of removing a tail light assembly.
I found the screws needed for the lock nut (part #99950731212). The part# N10081801 you can call your local Porsche dealer and they will order them for you. The screw is a M5x0.08x16 SS

I just picked up the screws art a local McMaster Carr. Way less expensive. I had to get the nut from the dealer, though. Pricy. The threaded insert looked to be made of bronze or similar? Perhaps that explains why I managed to just unscrew three with no issues and only had to struggle with the one closest to the oil tank. Of course it was the most difficult to access. It required lots of swearing.

I did eventually manage to get a vise grip on the nut enough to gently drill out the screw.
oh boy, exact same situation for me tonight - so happy to have found this thread but to makes things even more interesting, the pilot hole was drilled without issue but the second drill bit broke off inside the screw! Now looking for a way to cut off the captive clip / nut and hoping a pair of narrow bolt cutters will do the trick!

Replace the tail light seals, I thought. It'll be easy, I though! D'oh!
lol, you are me, I am you - but in the future, as in tonight

once the 2 small screws holding the backing plate in place are removed which went much better than the housing fasteners, you can use a flathead screw driver and some gentle persuasion to “pry” the two sections apart which reveals the amazing sealer still in relatively good shape after all these years (31, my car is an 87’).
