Headlight connection is loose

The plug for my drivers side headlight is loose. I was stumped as to how to fix it after swapping the bulb and checking the fuses and finally figured out if I moved the plug to just the right position the headlight would come on. What part should I replace to fix this? Do I just need a new x-clip or do I need a to replace the plug (which seems like it would be a huge job)?

Do you mean the actual connector is loose? If so, you could just look for another Honda with the same bulb at a junkyard and swap the connectors. Just leave a bit of wire on there and solder it to your existing harness.

I have to push the connector on with my hand to get the headlight to turn on, it seems like the female part of the connector isn't as snug as it needs to be. I really don't want to cut into the wiring and try to solder on a new connector. Has anyone else had this problem and solved it without cutting into the wiring?
