Wiring for Xenon/ALC headlights

My wires for my headlight have deteriorated and my light will not turn on. I cannot find where to buy new wires. Does anyone on here know where I can buy them (online preferably)?

This is the type of headlight that I have.

You cannot buy new wiring for the headlight internals. Your only options are to buy a new headlight, scavenge used good ones, or repair the current wiring. You probably won't find any used lights with good wiring since they will be subject to the same aging as yours. I opted to repair mine. Go out and buy a lot of heat shrink tubing and some 16 AWG automotive wire and splice it in.

Re: Wiring for Xenon/ALC headlights

Thanks. I'll give that a try.
