Source for PC912 Third Brake Light Bulb?

I need to replace a third brake light bulb in a 2007 Pontiac G6 base model four door. The plastic base on the bulb is melted so I can't just buy a regular 912 bulb and bend the leads into the old base.

I tried the dealership and various autozone type stores and they don't have it. The junkyard will only sell the whole assembly for $50. No one is parting out a G6 on craigslist right now.

I would be happy with either finding a place where I can buy the bulb (and ideally some spares) or, if I have to, replacing all three bulbs with an LED strip. Do you know where I can buy the PC912 bulb?

Thanks!

I have bought the T15 wedge style 912 bulb and bend the electrodes out to connect to the plastic 1/4 turn base. However I have never ran into a melted/damaged plastic base and have not seen them sold separately. Have you tried OEM, going to a GM dealer? Have to be options out there to buy bulbs instead of entire three light bulb assembly and base.
Good luck!

I did try a dealership. They had the bare bulb but not the bulb in a base or the base by itself. I'm curious how they would fix a customer's car if it had this problem but I didn't want to make them mad by asking.

I'm going to try the other dealer in town soon.

Thanks! I just ordered the socket and bulb from RockAuto. Too bad the dealer didn't know about that part.

The RockAuto part worked great! It's an ACDelco part, number 19256987. It was $9.18 for one. http://www.rockauto.com/en/moreinfo....433575&jsn=397

Again, too bad that the dealer didn't know about this and too bad the car used this odd design in the first place.

I'm not sure why the pics aren't showing up. Apparently I can't edit my post to fix it either.
