Water has made its way into my brake lights and corroded one of the brake light sockets to the point where the bulb only works when the brake pedal is pressed. I blasted the socket with contact cleaner and used a steel brush but it didn't fix it. I might be able to get it working if I can pull it apart so I can give it a thorough clean. Does anyone know if the socket can be disassembled?

Hmmm. You might be right. Thanks for the information. How would have they got the wires inside in the first place though? I was looking for a way to reverse that procedure without needing to cut any wires.

For the socket where the bulb goes in you can clear the rust out with a dremel and some attachment that acts like sandpaper. The back is harder. You'd have to cut off the plastic on the back, remove the wires, clear out all the rust, then solder/weld/glue the wires back onto the socket. If that doesn't work out I do have a spare tail light harness I could send you.
