'02 slk Corner lights

I purchased the clear corner lights recently..(had to replace one that flew off the car @#_)[email protected]_#)[email protected]$_). anyways, they came in today, but the bulb holder isn't the kind I use. (in the pic, you will see where it is for a single filament lamp...has plastic prong and two metal prongs). well, my '02 230 slk uses double filament lamp, so it has a plastic prong with THREE metal prongs. I need to get a replacement bulb holder to be able to use the new light. (Does anyone have any idea...where I can get this lamp holder?) BESIDES THE DEALER?

any and all help would be MOST appreciated.. Thanks, guys!

As far I I know they are the same single filament in all??

If yours is different just use the original sockets in your new light housings.

I would have, but when the light housing flew off while on the freeway, it took the socket as well. So, I only have one original socket left. (which is why I was wondering if there were any place to get it)

I would try the dealer. Price may only be $20 or so.
Not worth the time searching.
