Hello and thank you for your question,

Is the connector actually coming off the headlamp at the bulb?

If the connector is coming off then in most cases the fix is going to be to purchase a new connector and cut the old one out of the circuit and install the new one. When doing this you will want to solider the new connections and use the shrink tube to assure a good connection. There are only two wire for the connector and its a fairly easy repair. You should be able to purchase a new connector at your dealer to make this repair.
