SID Indicating Rear Brake Light Failure

I have a cracked rear lens and apparently water has gotten in and totally corroded the bulb holder and base of the old bulb. I am going to replace the lens. I replaced both bulbs in the holder but apparently the corrosion is too much and I am not getting any contact so no joy when it comes to getting the brake light to come on. How difficult is it to replace the actual bulb holder and how do you go about doing that? I don't want to break anything or make this worse. Thanks.

Changing out the bulb holder is actually really easy. Just go in through the trunk, pull down the trunk liner, and reveal the bulb holder. It just snaps in and out, super easy.
