Where to find tail light socket?

Hello all. The bulb sockets for each of my rear tail lights needs to be replaced, and for the life of me I cannot find a replacement part. Auto parts stores and dealerships were of no help, and I've also struck out at the local junkyards.

Anyone have a solution to this?

1. Look in the HELP! section of most auto parts stores, they're fairly generic.
2. Rockauto.com
3. Ebay

You're going to have to fabricate using replacement generic parts. The other alternative is to get the aftermarket LED fixtures and install them.

I was able to find one 3 wire in the HELP section at the local AutoZone (part number 85823 - says it's for older Fords), ordered two more from the local Napa, part numbers LS6458 and LS6459 (one a two wire, one 3 - don't remember which was which). None of these part numbers were tied to the XJ in the parts computers at either store.

AutoZone does/did carry the 2 wire socket in their HELP section as well, they were just out of stock that day and Napa got them for me that afternoon, so I went with them to get my heep driveable again for work that night.
