I think it would be worth adding the removal steps. For me, I just re-soldered the joints for the plug, they were clearly cracked and I could wiggle them around, no wonder the lights flickered. I live on a few miles of washboard gravel, so I'm curious how long my soldering holds up.
I need to do the VIC, guess I'll be doing this repair as well... first day driving to work in the morning, lights on auto. Got the strobe effect until I switched the lights from "auto" to "on" and they quit freaking out, hasn't done it since, but wifey will be DD this 5.9 and need it as calm as possible... she is blonde... LOL. Thanks to everyone who has contributed info on this subject!!!
