Did I say headlight pull? I meant the connector...

Sorry about the last post, maybe I wasn't too clear. My problem is not with the pull, per se, but with the connector that the pull seats into. I'd like to keep my pull (it's black with the chrome surround), but the connector that it sits in is the part (I'm assuming) that is going bad.

Does anyone have a part number, price or schematic? I don't know wether or not to order the entire assembly or the actual connector, so a little input is appreciated. Thanks!

OK, sounds like your switch is gone, common problem. The switch is easy to change. The knob comes off, screws I think. Then you will see a collar that has two knotches in it. This unscrews. You should be able to use a pair of nnedle nose plyers, but ron stygar makes a tool. The switch them comes out the bottom of the dash, you remove the panel covering the bottom of the dash. The switch snaps off the connector, then reverse the process. Hope that helps.

If its the connector or the pins in the connector we need your car model and year to look it up.

Pull?

If your "Pull" is the knob as I call it. well you sound like you love that little part,we all have parts we love, you can keep it and install it on a new switch. I'm pritty sure the switch comes with out the knob.
