Broken Headlight Housing Clip (Photos)
When I was replacing them, I accidentally broke one of the little plastic clips on the power cable. (See photos below.)
The headlight still slides into the underlying metal connector quite firmly, but there's no more plastic clip on the cable. The bulb still installed successfully since there is an auxiliary arm that holds the whole assembly into place.
I wrapped the connection with the broken clip in 221 degF rated electrical tape.
Questions for RFD:
1. Is the an OK / safe thing to do?
2. Is it worth it trying to get a replacement plastic clip?
