    The right side headlight socket is burned, please help me to identify the part, just the socket only if possible. An entire head lamp is expensive. I need to part number and instruction how to, thanks.

    I'm pretty sure you will need to replace the entire headlight assembly with a new or used one. Maybe you can get lucky and find one at a salvage yard for much less than a new one.

    The bulb wasn't installed right and it melted the plastic around the housing. You can do a mickey mouse job on it by gluing it, but to fix it properly, you would need to replace it. Buy a used one if you can
