Headlight connector / plug

I am unable to find this connector anywhere looking for the black plug housing and the internal connectors. This is the plug for headlights. The internal push on connectors are a bit wider than standard connectors I have seen. Any suggestions on where to buy this?

Got a bunch of those on junk harnesses, but you are going to have to splice the wires if you are missing the connectors.

You can probably replace ther terminals in the connector instead of splicing. The terminals usually (haven't done headlamps) have a little retainer tab that you have to depress with a brad nail or other long slender object. Get a new terminal and crimp it onto your existing harness.

Re: headlight connector / plug

American Auto Wire sell those larger terminals. The rest of these cars use a Packard 56 series, but these headlamp terminals are Packard 59 series and are part number 500188. $4 buys 10.
The 3-terminal plastic connectors are part number 500196 and they're $4 each. (..but you can re-use your existing connestors af you want buy removing the terminals. Use a tiny flat blade the flatten the tang within.)

See page 41 of.. http://www.americanautowire.com/catalogs/2009AAW.pdf

You'll need the right crimpiners (see page 55), but MSD sell these too and are modular with different jaws available to suit the one pliers.. I have these and I love them!
See pg 132 of the MSD catalog. 35051 with 3506 are the jaws you need.
