    Default Front Fogs Cable broken

    I've had on and off problems with the f/n/s fog light on my Vec 'c' for a while due to condensation build up causing issues with the lens.

    Yesterday I had the bulb warning light come on and so spen some time today trying to fix it. It wasn't the bulb but a problem with the white wire than runs to the bulb from up and behind the housing. The connector looks like it has corroded and broken off (so guessing that's my answer) but I can't seem to see inside enough to be able to replace the connector. Has anyone else had this problem with some advice on best how to fix it? Thanks

    Scrap yards? Also get a new wire, unless you are good with a soldering gun and make up the cable yourself. When you say having a job get it out, is it rattling insode the unit or still pluuged in? Pair of good nbeedle nose pliers can normally help pull out broken connectors.
