09 Camry headlamp socket

Piet Bywater

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

i was driving along tonight and noticed my driver side headlight was not on, figuring it was blown I decided to get a new bulb and try to put it in, on further inspection I have discovered that the socket the globe plugs into has partially melted and needs to be replaced, I've tirelessly searched google to find a replacement source but can't seem to find one anywhere. 

Where should I go to get a replacement socket?

its an 09 Camry and takes standard h7 gloves(it's the normal headlight beam)

Go to a wrecker and cut one off a donor car and do some minor surgery. Are you handy with a soldering iron ?

Will probably cost no more than around 10 bucks.

Just make sure to wrap the join with electrical tape  or heat shrink to avoid moisture and possibility of a short to earth.
