This is a discussion on Headlight Wiring within the Firebird / WS6 forums, part of the Vehicle Specific category; I actually just noticed mine are corroded a little too. Gonna have to go back in there later and rewire....

I have some good news on this. I was at the dealer yesterday and they have a bin with all kinds of pins for inside connectors. I was able to narrow it down to three that could work to replace the pin that broke. I don't think they have actual part numbers for these. Tonight I am going to try nad fix that pin and see if it works.

You will most likely have to replace all of the pins, and definately both the male and female side. When I took apart my connector, the pins were intact. They were just so corroded, they wouldn't make contact. They are very brittle and trying to clean them will most likely destroy them.

I may be mistaken, but I thought the parts stores now carried weatherpack connectors for repairs like this. Granted, you would need to splice both ends into your harness, but it would maintain a removeable connection and still look fairly factory-ish.

Out of the three pins I had grabbed one one the perfect match. Was able to get it put into the conntector. I then spray electric contact cleaner on both connectors, took one of the other pins, which was the same thickness and length pin just a different connection to the wire and slid it into each of the female connectors just incase any corrosion had built up. plugged the connectors together and it works fine.
