my rear running light (right below turn signal on the body of the car) has been out since i don't know when so when my headlight blew, i decided to pick up a bulb and take care of that rear light too. headlight went in no muss no fuss. i went to remove the rear light assembly and what do i find? first, the bulb is shattered (good reason why it don't work), second, almost the entire assembly is full of water. how the turn signal didn't fizzle, i don't know. anyhow, the socket for the broken tail light is now rusted all to hell and won't budge. i was able to detach the wiring for both (one piece with two wires) and went to NAPA to get a replacement but was told i'm out of luck. i gotta think this removable part is available somewheres? i checked an online chain and came up with a bunch of stuff that looks like the same thing but can't verify. i'm sure, worst case scenario, if i can get the name of the part, i can solder in a new socket on the old wires? anyone have the parts or numbers. i'd much appreciate it. thanks!

I'd go to a local salvage yard and just cut the pigtail. If they want more than a few $, I'd go internet. Google. or Amazon.
