This is the plastic socket that is behind the headlight switch on your Vanagon. This particular socket is only for the very later model headlight switches that were used from 89-91 in the Vanagon. The headlight switch this mates with is the 251941531T version only! Please check your switch part number or the part number that is on the socket before ordering. It will NOT work on the earlier version of the headlight switch. If your socket has melted, why not buy one of these NOS replacements while they are available? Does not come with any wiring, just the plastic socket itself.
