    Default Headlight help plz

    My vectra has blown a bulb and when i went to change it today i have notice the plastic around the wiring adaptor has melted, what would cause this? whats the best option to do, maybe get a new adaptor and wire that in? i think its due to a loose conection as last week the light went out and came back on by itself but as said, this time the plastic is melted, i have disconnected the bulb and put insulation tape around the wiring as i dont want it harking out on anything.

    any help will be appreciated.

    thanks.

    i think its due to a loose conection.
    Correct. Also known as a high resistance joint.
    The female spade connectors need cleaning and possibly closing up a bit to grip the male spade terminals a bit tighter.
