    A lot of car manufacturers don't supply bulb holders or harness connectors. Best chance is to go to a wrecking yard. When trying to locate or find second hand parts, the best way post a request to many wrecking yards at the same time is to Google the words "wrecking yard parts" or "used auto parts" if you want to be a little more specific enter the manufacturer of your vehicle example "Toyota used parts". May links apear that allow you to enter the details of your vehicle and the parts you are looking for. This request is then sent out to thousands of wrecking yards through out the country and they then send you an email or give you a call with the price and availability of hte part. it is the wrecking yard that pays a small commision for the service.
