Even if you find one, it's socket will probably be in rough shape also.

I *think* you can get new ones without wires in them from the dealer, 
but it would have to be a good dealer.

The dealer, obviously, but also I think the headlight switch might be 
available through the aftermarket sellers.

If you can't find a terminal, you can try to piece together crimp-on 
terminals on each wire (of the correct size) and hook them each up 
individually.  Be careful to avoid shorts.

Also, it is a very good idea to install relays for your headlights to 
take the load off the switch.  And perhaps the parking circuits as well 
- trigger the relay with one of the three outputs, and hook up all 3 
circuits to the relay output.
