Question about Scion Cars & Trucks
The wiring to the headlight seems to be loose. The light keeps going out, but the bulb is fine. I was able to jiggle wires at one point to make it work, but it seems more extensive than that. Is there a DIY way to fix/replace the wiring assembly for a headlight? TIA

It is a real pain. You have to remove the whole front bumper cover. I work for a GM dealer and we hate to change those bulbs. Sorry. Is it not still under warranty? Good Luck.

Get yourself to a junkyard and pack yourself a light lunch while you're at it. Take a leisurely stroll through the junk that closely resembles the one you need parts for. Go to the closest wiring harness to the headlight assembly, take your time and don't go trying to **** it, and unplug it from the bulbs up front. Make a simple and straight forward swap and do take the time to stop and smell the junkers, it's quite relaxing! Then, you should seriously make sure your new wiring harness is properly grounded (!), which I suspect to have been a contribing factor to your problem of overheating the bulb socket. Do take the time to go over the stuff that should be grounded and make it so. Th e job is quite simple and well worth you taking the time to do it yourself.
