Default 98 + turn signal & DRL socket repair

Here's the easy and better way to repair your turn signal and daytime running light bulb sockets.

No splicing required!

These sockets have two tabs on the sides. Depress these tabs and the socket guts come out from the bulb housing.

Remove your burned socket gut.

Remove the socket gut from a new socket and insert it into the original bulb housing.

Done! No splicing required!
