Just replaced the tail lights on my 99 XJ with a set of Aftermarket ones, and upon removing the passenger tail light, found that the previous owner had replaced the bulbs at some point, and when reinstalling the sockets, used some rubber gasket or sealant on the socket before twisting it in to the tail light housing, in place of the factory gasket/bushing/anti-rattle washer that is normally there. Needless to say, the rubber or sealant melted in the hot weather we've been having, and turned to tar.
In trying to clean the tar off the sockets, I broke the clips in both the reverse light and turn signal / running light sockets, both 2 wire plugs, with different types of "retainers" on them to hold them in to the housing.
I spoke with our local Chrysler/Jeep dealership today, and they had no luck tracing down just the sockets, instead requiring me to purchase a wiring harness, although I didnt find out how much of a harness it is, or how far into the XJ it goes.
Also had no luck with Napa, after digging through all of their Wiring/Socket books, nothing that lists for Jeep in the years or styles that I need, or in Chrysler/Dodge for that matter.
So looking to see if anyone has any part numbers, either Chrysler or Aftermarket #'s, or anything that will work in place of the factory sockets.
The numbers I did pull off of my sockets, that didn't seem to be able to be crossed anywhere, are:
These were the numbers stamped into the sockets themselves.
(The one Dodge application I found at Napa had the same 90523L on it, followed by a 12 I believe?)
Also, two of the sockets had the numbers stamped on them in white:
8160 1 (The 1 was below the 8160) and 7342 3 (The 3 was below the 7342), also no good as numbers to cross through Napa or Chrysler.
The top light, Parking/Brake, is a 3 wire socket
The middle light, Parking/Turn is a 2 wire socket
The bottom light, Reverse, is a 2 wire socket
So before I go start raiding the junkyards in hopes of finding the sockets I need, hoping to find someone who's been through this before!
Thanks in advance!
