As per title - I'm looking for two (2) side marker bulb holders and plugs w/ wiring for an E30.

Bulb holders look like this:

And the plugs attach to those and are wired into the car.

dude their cheap - buy sockets at the dealer. most are rotted out.

I know the sockets are cheap - what I actually need are the plugs & wiring connectors and I can't find them on realoem to ask the dealer for them.

The socket number: 63141380562 As far as the plugs on the wire, you're best to just make them yourself... just solder the wire to the plugs and wrap them with heat shrink. The wires are part of the chasis harness... they don't plug and play. You've gotta cut and paste.

Yeah, I know I'll need to solder stuff - it's just that I have two plugs that have the contacts inside rotted away. So I need two plugs with contacts in decent shape and ~3 inches of wiring attached so I can splice them back into my harness.

I'd get them new if I could figure out what "plug housing" or whatever it is that I need.

Let me check my stash, I think I have the plugs with about 5 inches of wiring cut off. Probably no bulb holders though.

I've cut the wires out of my parts car, not sure if they're all good... I know that I need two of them, so if I have two left over, they're yours. I can't spare any of the holders.

I think cirrusblau has some that I can pick up. Just have to confirm that they're good after he cuts them out.

Thanks for the offers, guys - will send PMs if I can't get them off cirrusblau.
