Question about 1999 Volkswagen Passat
The driver's side headlight keeps going out, when I tap on the rubber boot over the bulb the light will come back on. i have replaced the electrical connector to the bulb and still get this same problem with the bulb going out. The two wires going to the bulb seem like they are burnt, like it is getting hot and melting the plastic connector. Have anyone noticed a wire problem with this car?
I would replace the wires with a lower gauge wire (thus thicker) this may help this issue

Fig. On some models, a rubber cover is removed to access the bulb-1.8L Passat model shown
Fig. Once the cover is removed the wiring can be accessed and disconnected-1.8L Passat model shown
Fig. The bulb is retained by metal bracket. The ends are squeezed toward one another to release them from their retainers-1.8L Passat shown
NOTE Do NOT touch the glass portion of the new bulb. This will shorten the life of the bulb.
