      I've checked around but could not find a source for it (Euro headlight plug). Also need the clip ends.

      You've been chasing the same thing I've been. That may have other uses but it's the used on Rallye Golf headlights. It is one of those things that's NLA / Obsolete. Of course, like anything else there may be an identical part with a different part # available. If I find a lot of them I'll give you a heads up. Post the part . My car's still in the shop. The one listed on eBay is a two wire and this is a four.

      I just talked with Christian (EPP) about these. He's the source of NLA / Obsolete info. It was the same conversation that verified LED Corrado tail lights were no longer being produced. It's new / old stock only right now. Christian had a supplier that made a nice uprated Rallye Golf Harness with those connectors on them. There were two available but can't make anymore since there's no source for the parts now.

      FYI: http://forums.tdiclub.com/showthread.php?t=245319

      Here ya go: They're the same as a Passat built from 1988 to 1997 (B3 / Type 35). No shortage of those around

      Talked to tyco about these since they were the original supplier. Said they won't sell them to anyone.

      IIRC Passat used the same plug

      Thanks everyone for the overwhelming support! I've got a couple of leads I'm checking out. I've got the entire harness but had to pull of the ends and reposition the wires so all I need are those plugs and the metal clips that go on the end of the wires.

      Weird, aren't those the plugs that go onto the ecodes (all corrado years/ models)? Are there no more relayed ecode harnesses being made/ sold then? That looks like what the PO used on my car to make a custom relayed harness. I sure hope my plugs never go bad... I might be buying a couple of those 20...

      Exactly my thoughts....what are people going to do when buying used ecode headlights? I've got the plugs now but no wires/connectors. Spent 45 minutes at the dealer today trying to find the part AND trying to get the pins out of my old one. The wires were pulled and the pins still suck in them The hunt continues.....

      Put some of these in your tool box. They're inexpensive on eBay. Make sure you get the crimpers that roll the terminal ends in an M like the ones below. I'd list the links but afraid I'll upset some since it may not seem relevant to a corrado

      Schwaben pin removal tool is about $70

      Generic off eBay is about $36
      http://www.ebay.com/itm/VW-Audi-Conn...87409782712559

      The All in one tool I pictured is nice since it's an all in one. It's no fun if you need to apply pressure though

      I bought the lilse tool (multi-tool-red and green shown above) from ebay. Works like a charm. I'm not sure what the more expensive tools do, but this works.
