Please Help Me Find What Part This Is

Hi! I am finishing up an HIG retrofit. After I made all the connections, I tested out the lights and found that the high and low beams were reversed. After a little searching, I found that I may need to switch the pins around that connect to the stock harness, similar to this video:
When trying to remove these pins to switch them around, I ended up busting one. The local auto parts store did not have a suitable replacement. Can anyone point me in the right direction on what part this is, exactly, so that I can order it and finally finish up my project? Many thanks for the help.

I don't see any pictures. But, maybe you can jump the two wires without going through the socket.

The part you need is a male 9007 Headlight socket with pigtails, just cut off the one you messed up and splice this one in. Technically the pins can be replaced but unless you have professional tool for making the pin to wire connection it's a better idea to just buy it with that already done.

If the pins are fine I wouldn't even cut it off. I'd finish depinning it and repin in a new blank one.
