Yeah...I know it's a dumb little thing to be on the hunt for, but I can't seem to find one at any of the auto parts stores. Anyone have a spare or know where I can buy a new one?

Thanks, but I've already talked to that guy on facebook. Everything is melted.

I managed to get one from a guy I've done business with before on Instagram. Phew!

They used to keep these in stock at all the local auto parts stores too, just FYI in case you ever need another.

Well that blows. They used to, but I guess the older vehicles are going the way of the dinosaur these days. Kids these days only want to deal with Hondas and other garbage.

A few of them had connectors I could've used to rig something together but it would've made changing a bulb from outside the van a potential hassle because they wouldn't fit the light assembly correctly and would need to be held from inside while twisting the bulb.

Once my interior walls and benches go in I'm not trying to take my interior apart to change a bulb.

Yeah I remember the Help section at Madison Auto Parts was a whole isle by itself. Now they relegate these parts to a shelf.

That's one that I found at all the local places. Because it won't clip in to the tail light the way the stock one does, I wouldn't be able to install a bulb because it doesn't make contact with the bulb base behind the assembly.

I ended up getting a complete tail light wiring harness from a fellow vanner, so it's all good.
