Headlight Wiring

My passenger side headlight has been driving me crazy. The connector (the wiring within the connector) that plugs into the bulb is loose and every time I turn on my headlights, that one is very dim. I have to open the hood and jiggle the wiring harness around until it lights and usually it will have vibrated loose again in a few miles. Does anyone know if it's possible to find the light bulb holder, connector, and some length of the harness so I can splice a new one in? I feel like a salvage yard is going to be my only choice... Thanks!

Thanks and Gig 'Em!

I had the same issue and I bent the bulb prongs just a tad so the plug would tighten up and it worked for me so far

I can get you a repair kit or a all new USA made harness that will allow using 80/100w 4k Kelvin bulbs so you can SEE!
