Lightbulb for 2002 Jag X-type headlight melted into harness.
My driver's side headlight went out. I tried to replace the bulb, but can not get it out of the socket. It appears to have melted or corroded. I need to know the part number for the socket (I think some people call it a pigtail) and where I can order a new one.

Talk to your dealership and/or your vehicle manufacture. However, the dealer - it's parts department - should know because your problem can't be unique - and if they don't know, then the manufacture definitely will know.

Only thing you can do yourself is with an electrical resistance testing, You would do wiggle testing at the connectors to see if something makes the meter change. The squeeze the connectors tighter. Or wiggle wires around the problem bulb with the lights on and watch for a flicker.
Check the actual harness for power once you turn the lights on. It should be about 12volts. Unplug the light bulb and test for power. Sometimes the harness gets dirty or corroded. Wiggle the new lightbulb around in the harness and see if it wants to turn on, if so the wire harness needs cleaning. If not, try the new bulb on the working side and see if it turns on. Also, not only test the harness, but the wires themselves for power. Test inside the harness, then on the wires themselves.
I use to have the same problem, you may need someone with thin hands and large fingers, I went to mechanic, he uses a large curved tweezers, it´s very difficult to do it yourself, I spend several hours trying, but I abort the job and went to mechanic he fix the problem in 10 mins.
when you got the spark chances are you shorted the receptacle for the bulb on the low side you should check the fuse for this . the drivers side low beam worked before so i would say you blew the fuse. on the passenger side check for broken ,frayed ,or loose wires in the light harness and the plugs them selves chances are you will find a short in them. please rate this solution
