Headlight Problem

So my right headlight (sitting in the car) went out and I replaced both bulbs. After I did that, my right light gets extremely dim and will not stay bright, however when I put some pressure on the plug it lights up bright. I think my problem is the blue connector that the actual light plugs into (it seems to be melted slightly. Does anyone know the part number for that socket? I looked it up online but I cant find it on the diagram. Also I imagine this would be an easy job for a shop to do, is that true?

Very easy for a shop to do, as well as easy for you...
