headlight issue

Preface - I am a complete moron...
My original problem - My drivers side headlight was really messed up. All the tabs were broke and the lense was cracked.
My solution - I got new blackened DEPO headlights.
My new problem - I tossed the factory headlight out without taking the male "plugs" out. (where the female wire harness connects to)
Besides all 5th gen Preludes, is there any other Honda that has the same "plugs"?
...sorry for the "plugs", but I don't know the technical name...
If any of you guys cold help me out, I'd really appreciate it!

Re: headlight issue

So I suppose you are talking about the part that the actual bulb plugs into, inside the rubber cover?



Are you talking about Part #2 in this image? If so, you can order it online, or contact a local junkyard and see if they have any 97-01 Preludes. Hopefully they still have the headlights (and sockets).

Re: headlight issue

Yeah, I am talking about number 2.
The only problem is the local junk yards don't have any 5th gen preludes... a bunch of other Honda's...
Would any of you know if any other Honda's have the same socket?

I agree on this. I've been on the same boat for the past six months but has already solved the issue with the help of a diagnostic tool. My mechanic has referred me to a local junk however the ones i got for the sockets and lights were aftermarket but now looking forward to anzo headlights installation instructions and do some mods on my vehicle.
