Headlight wiring problem

I have a 97 Nissan Altima, and one of my headlights has gone out. Since my brights wouldn't work on that side either I figured it wasn't a bulb. When I dug around I found a female end of a light socket (sorry, I don't know the technical name) that plugged into my headlight. This piece was cracked pretty badly, and the prongs wouldn't stay in. How difficult would this be to replace myself? Also, what is the technical name of the part I'm looking for? Thanks in advance.

This should be an easy fix. Just cut the old one out and splice the new one in with weather tight butt connectors. This is probably going to be a dealer part for this vehicle. What you are looking for is the headlight wiring pigtail.

Thanks. I was hoping that was all there was to it.
