    Hi guys,
    Need your assistance in locating a simple part.
    One of the sockets of the taillight of my 98 is bad, it's not making a good connection. The problem is in the socket itself, you know the part: light bulb goes in one end, three wires come out the other.
    I need a replacement, but CJ Ponyparts doesn't carry that item (customer support told me). If I look on Ebay I see a million different designs and all of them say they fit the Mustang - and I don't believe them.
    Who can give me a link to the right part, for a company/seller that will ship to Europe?

    Autozone does not even mention international shipping.

    Ebay might be an option but I can't decide what is a trustworthy seller selling me quality goods and which sends me something that burns my car down.
    [MENTION=11896]ttocs[/MENTION]: I might take you up on that offer, but on the Autozone website it doesn't find a taillight socket for a 1998 Mustang GT. I'll search some more, see if I can find it. Probably next weekend I can take my light apart to see exactly how it looks.

    I would be happy to help and send it. Now funny enough I was looking at that very harness just a few weeks ago for another project of mine. The strange part about that piece is there is a harness that plugs into it, but autozone doesn't sell the harness lol. See if your stock piece can be separated right at the end and you might be in luck otherwise I will look into it a little more since I know where it is.

    Yeah, I'll have to check how to connect the wires into the new socket. Will do that this weekend.

    That is actually also a good tip because they seem to ship to the Netherlands. Also the socket already has wired attached.

    However:

    Thanks, I'll look into that.

    Sorry [MENTION=11896]ttocs[/MENTION] I haven't gotten around to looking at the lights yet.
