Xenon headlight wire problem

So one of my headlights went out, i found the wire and fixed it for the time being. now it came out again with no extra wire to fix it. anyone know the name of the harness or a DIY on this fix? thanks in advance.

Anyone else looking for that wire the ebay seller "factory_oem_xenon" (http://www.ebay.com/usr/factory_oem_xenon) has it, and they are located in Cerritos, CA so no overseas shipping or anything like that. cheers!!!
