My headlights has gone suddenly. Quick investogation led to totally burnt connector:

Is it possible to find it?

Or PlanB: to cut it off and make a custom connector.
But what is wiring plan?

You should of course change both sides.
If it was my car, wouldn't bother to find this same type of connector.
Any will do as long as it is a proper connection.
You still see from the connectors wich wire went where.


You might try to google the part number of the manual and download it from the interweb..
Stay off the spooky adresses in your google result.. keep your antivirus properly updated and scan whatever you download.

Take care to use your VIN-number to find the correct manual section and wiring.

I agree with everything Yakusa said but...

If you cannot find the correct wiring you could just swap each connector one at a time! Remember you will have to remove the damaged wiring before fitting the new connector which may look a bit messy unless you shorten each wire by the same.

Lastly, check earth and live voltage drop thru the connector, blown bulbs and condition of the loom along that section of wiring after you have repaired the connector.
Damage like this can be a symptom to a problem rather than the actual problem. The only thing worse than repairing wiring is repairing wiring you have just repaired!
