Default Headlights acting up

Anyone else seen this?
'98 Integra GLS - the headlights periodically stop working - ususlly one at
a time, but this morning both were out. Bulbs are OK - all I have to do to
get them working again is wiggle them, or take the socket out of the
fixture. I disconnected both & checked the connections - they look good (no
corrosion) - so I'm puzzled.

Should I replace connectors, bulbs, wiring?

I had that kind of a problem with the halogens in my Audi. Replacing the
bulbs fixed it. Apparently the filament can fracture, while still making
connection some of the time. Can't hurt to try. If that's not it you can
just keep the old ones for spares.
