Default Re: The Drum Taillight electrical assembly

I don't really have an answer for you, but I can tell you what I've seen and maybe some choices. First off, I've tried to put a socket into the rear housing/license plate bracket, and I don't see any way to do it without bending, shortening one leg of the tab, or removing the rivet.
The little tail that goes under the post in the socket must have been installed by riveting that part of the assembly. I think they slipped the tab under the post and installed the rivet for that assembly.
I've seen where that tab has been bent into an S or U shape to help remove it.
I also have a few that have one little leg of the tab shortened (see photos) but I haven't tried that method in removing, or installing, the socket.
