    I have just spent two hours searching the Internet for a pair of Parking Light sockets for the front headlight assembly of our new '03 T4R. If you've ever changed out your headlights bulbs, you will have noticed there is a bulb for high beams. A bulb for low beams. And way up in the outside corner, a bulb for your Parking Lights (aka Running Lights, Marker lights ... but Toyota calls them Parking lights). They take a mini-bulb (161 or 168). Anyhow ... both my sockets are shot. One is burned and melted. The other has some form a substitute socket that was never even wired. I easily got new wiring harnesses for the high and low beams. No one on the planet Earth seems to carry the Parking light harness/socket.

    Aside from a trip to the scrap yard, does anyone have a suggestion or link?

    Thanks.

    I did see that. It might work. Unfortunately the diagram bares no resemblance to my headlight assembly. I'll hold out for another day before I take the $7.57 gamble. Thanks for helping.
