    DRL Socket

    Whereabouts does one find a replacement DRL socket for our cars? I had an issue yesterday with my driver side turn signal and upon checking the bulbs my socket is just a bit on the "toasty" side. I installed a new bulb with a generous coating of dielectric grease and now have working signals. Looks like it is time to change them out.

    I tried Autozone and Advance and couldn't come up with anything. Even let the guy at the counter try and he struck out. Got a link?

    I bought mine from oreilly and installed them without cutting any wires.

    You can push in and remove the insides. The wires then slide out. Reverse to install back on the car.

    I think I just found one on Napa's site -- ECH EC1644. Can't get their vehicle specific search to pull up anything. Have to look at the mounting tabs to ensure that they are properly spaced.

    forget all that go to the junk yard I got two of them for 4 bucks.
    Oh and Saturns, I think caviliers, some impalas all have the same housing and theyre like brand new since they dont have our moisture problem. TRUST ME on this one guys I almost paid the dealer cost and I had just happened to look at a saturn and noticed they were the exact same.

    I just cut and re-soldered them on, they work awesome so that was the best 2 bucks i've spent on those damn lights.
