Replace bulbs you can still get at any auto parts store. If you need new sockets that's a different story

If that bad I'd just get a new rear light harness.

The bulb broke off in the socket, I cant tell if I need a new socket yet. I saw a whole new assembly on ebay for 300 dollars for a pair!

Get some PB Blaster or WD40 and squirt some around the bulb base in the socket. Use a piece of rubber hose or fuel line just small enough to fit in the base of the bulb, use that hose to push and twist the broken base out.

Another option is to use a pair of expanding snap-ring pliers to get the broken base out of the socket

WD 40 or BP blaster, soak then push the bulb's base in to the socket. It will turn Counter clock wise to remove.
Bulb #1156.

Ok to late with this information except the bulbs number #1156.
If the rubber hose trick slips, find a wood dowel rod or a bolt slid into the hose to stiffen it and keep it tight in the bulbs base.
I guess I type s-l-o-w.

I forget the hair dryer trick, warm the socket on the outside, socket expands first and the base second, letting oils draw down between both parts.

Summit Racing must sell a cheap modern replacement-- or Napa-- or go to wreckers -- & customize in something that works--  Tongue Tongue Tongue PE--I have some Dry wall screws holding in parts of my dash--nice & black & 95% of folks never notice--
