9004 Bulb Connectors, Where to buy?

The left hand side connector to my 9004 headlight bulb appears to have gone bad. It looks like it was too hot at some point in its career. It currently has standard 9004 bulbs in it, not sure if at one point it had higher wattage bulbs in it though. Replacing the connector looks easy enough, only would have to splice in the three conductor connector.
Does anyone know if these connectors are available new anywhere? Id like to repair this rather than replacing the whole headlamp assembly. Thanks.

Said it before... I'll say it again. Save your pennies and get ecodes. 9004 powered fixtures have terrible beam control. A set of cheap chinese ecodes will do better then the DOT lights.

Your local auto parts store should have a connector, I believe 9007 lamps use the same plug.
