WTB 944 center tail light

I am looking to replace my rear lighted tail light. As you can see, mine is warped and bowed out at the middle. Anyone have one they want to part with? Please give a price with shipping included to 93012 ( Camarillo, Ca.) Thanks, Tim

You can epoxy 2 center studs in the middle to repair the buldging

There are no center studs to affix. I messed up by trying to low heat in oven which fixed the warp but trashed the raised lettering. Now it is a straight polished turd

I have had 2 cars with that aftermarket light.
Both warped and separated just like yours.
I recommend getting rid of it as another will do the same.

I know there are no center studs this is why they bow in the center with time and the heat.

That s why I said you can epoxy some studs on. that's what I do on my clients cars with the same issue .

You can also remove the oem light bulbs and use a lower watt set up to reduce heat

Any Idea where to find a NEW replacement? I have scoured all the Porsche sites and parts places. No one seems to carry them anymore

That will happen to any one you install thus if you add the extra center studs and the low heat leds it will stop the bowing from the heat as well as the unsecured center
