It could be a question of lighting, but I do get the impression the heads of the Phillips screws have been poorly chromed.
Check if they're the same size as on the large headlights.Grommet substitution thoughts?
This grommet isn't available anywhere I've looked. This one is pretty bad and the other one is gone. Any thoughts on substitutions? I could put a standard firewall style grommet and then silicone the wires into it.
Good idea. I have a set of the Cicognani ones for the headlights, I will test them for size but I bet it's the same. However I will need to drill an extra hole as the turn/fog lamps get three wires. Thanks!
I haven't seen them available anywhere. Matt Jones at Reoriginals sells single-contact (L0239X) and dual-contact (L0238X) repair sockets here. I found them to be too expensive and opted for inexpensive sockets from a generic auto parts store (which probably was about the same trouble to make them fit).Tail Light Sockets - Are these available somewhere?
Good afternoon. After digging out the 6 tail light sockets, I find that 4 of the 6 tail light sockets have broken attachment tabs. I can't seem to find these for sale at the big 3. Any idea where I can get these? I need 2 of the single filaments and 2 of the double filaments.
yep. That’s what I meant by adjusting screw on the door striker. You’ll note some wear on the headsof your screws indicating a contact point.I believe your two long round headed mystery screws might be the push rods for the door handles. These are not normally chromed, but that doesn't really matter-it just makes them trickier to identify. Mine are M5x0.8 with end-end length of 54.3 mm, for comparison.

Thanks for this, I will confirm it is in place, as I have found two of these in my parts.This is where the square wire piece belongs, on the trunk lock/license plate assembly. It has been awhile since I disassembled my car, so its actual function escapes me at the moment.
Thanks Steve, I will measure these, but based on Don's observation I believe you and Don are right and we have solved this one. No idea why we chromed them.I believe your two long round headed mystery screws might be the push rods for the door handles.

I had the same issue with my rear light sockets (2600) but I believe they are the same. I found some generic light sockets that work well. I will look in my box of spares when I get home and let you know.Anyone know how I can repair the spring tabs on my tail light sockets? Thanks!
Wow Don, that's great! I'd love to get two of the singles, and the original double that you have. I have a complete set of boots from Cicognani. In fact I've got two extra by accident. I will message you about this. Thanks!I've got about four of the single-connector originals sockets, but only one original two-connector sockets. I also have a NAPA socket that should work, after you snip off three of the tangs. I bought a handful of modern sockets, but don't recall that I ended up using them. It would have been a decade or so ago. The original sockets are in quite good condition.
