    Does anyone know the part # for the connector (with or without pigtail) that plugs into the front Turn Signal / Parking Light socket? For reference, I am looking for the connector that matches the socket below. I have an intermitent connection for the turn signal on the passenger side and the parking light on the driver side, and it is driving me nuts!

    4F9Z-13411-A is the socket, you're right. What I am looking for is a pigtail to replace the one on the harness. The little locking tabs are broken on mine and keep working themselves lose (at least that's what I think is happening). I looks what I need is a 6U2Z14S411AB (WPT1025), like below, but different sites have different pictures for that part #. I don't really want to waste $40 :mad: for the wrong part.

    Jeebus, would you pay $40.00 for the "right part"? Call me a butcher, hack or cheapskate, but I'm pretty certain I could sock those up tight with about three small cable ties each. Broke six out of eight of the fuel injector connectors on one of my cars. Instead of paying $15-$20 each for replacements, I used a few cable ties. Cost near nothing and worked fine. Ghetto? Maybe, but it worked and it's done!

    Edit That particular connector wouldn't lend itself to attaching a cable tie. Instead, my other ghetto solution would be a dab of silicone in the latching area. It acts like a glue, but you can still pull it apart if needed.

    I'm with you, I wouldn't pay $40 each, no way, but $40 for a pair, I'm considering it... I tried some hotglue, but that didn't really hold up either. I think the connection is a little too finicky. Nothing against "ghetto fix", it's only ghetto if you can see it :)
    Another reason for a "real" connector is that I am working on a 3rd HID retrofit, so I don't want anything too permanent since I will be taking the current assemblies off and on a few times.

    Forgot the most important fix for this issue! Here's $20.00 well spent: Caig DeoxIT® D-Series

    Brush that on the connector's male and female parts. Then, use a tiny brush to clean out the female connector. You can find these in the drug store dental isle:

    Then, silicone or glue the connector in place. That should be the end of that problem!

    Oh yeah, I always forget about that stuff when I put thing back together! Thanks for the reminder.
