Day time driving light issue

I thought I had a burnt out day time driving light on the drivers side. Seemed premature while the car only has 26K miles on it. When I pulled the unit out I found the socket all black and the bulb end melted. The bulb was not burnt out but the plastic melted to it could not make good contact - this does not make me feel good.

Re: Day time driving light issue

Im in Australia and is a common problem here as well, my headlights are going to be replaced under warranty. When they have been done i will put leds in for the drl/parking globe.
