Tail Light Socket

So I had the wire problem in the trunk some time ago and I fixed that but then I started getting more issues with my rear light on the SID coming on and it seems that the socket board and the plug were shorting out. I went to a few yards today and it seems that this is a common problem to have the wiring and the plug and the board to have issues.

My issue right now is, I cannot source a replacement socket for the rear driver tail light. Has any one else had this issue? I found the part number but I see discontinued all across the board. Here is the part number 32017838. If another saab or euro car has this style socket, that would be great because in the picture, one of the pins is fried and I don't feel like going back to my Kspec fab work lol

That's the ground. Run a screw through the back of the board, into the ground circuit and attach the wire to the screw. (same fix you'd see on a c900 convertible or sedan)

I think I am going to go at it a little more legit but it is nice to know that this is a ground wire.
