    My mom's 76 C-10 has some bad wiring on the driver's side light... It's really dim and sometimes it'll be bright for a minute... She bought a new lamp and I put it in and had the same problems, so I jiggled the wires around and think that's the problem... In some positions the light is bright, and some really dim... How would I go about re-wiring this lamp? I kinda followed the wires and they went into one of those black hose things that keep wires all together, so is this a difficult thing? Could I just cut the wires where they come out of the hose and connect the new wires to that? /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    Sounds like all you really need to do is splice in new headlamp connectors that plug into the back of the headlamp.

    it sounds like there is some corrosion on the terminals that the light bulb plugs into, i do not think it is in the wiring itself.
