Default C6 Tail Light Socket

One of the tail light sockets on my C6 has given up the ghost and I thought it would be a simple matter to replace it. The socket plugs onto the wire, the bulb push loads into the socket and then the socket twist locks into the tail light lens assembly. I cannot find a replacement socket. GM wants to sell me the entire assembly for about $170. This is not more than a $10 part all over the web for most any other car. Any leads would be appreciated. The numbers on the back of the socket are 4SPX 13411_CA 040911009

I used to find parts like this for my C4 in junkyards. Specifically headlight sockets. GM used the same ones on the vette as the impala, caprice, malibu etc.

I had the same problem and went with these:
Amazon Amazon

Not exactly OEM but with a little cut and splice my problem is gone.

Good luck...

Look in the C6 parts for sale section, I saw some members parting cars out might be able to get a couple sockets.

There are some Corvette recyclers that have anything that you want especially for the C5 and C6.
