The link above shows a similar style light bar that I am trying to
repair. One of the light sockets got snapped loose. Tried to affix
using JB Weld but that didn't work.
Is it possible to get replacement sockets for light bars? Or is
replacement of the entire assembly the only option?
If the rivet came loose it can be pop riveted back on. By the time you buy
a gun and rivets you could toss and extra 20 in and buy the whole thing at
Lowes or Home Depot. Oh and you could also find a sheet metal screw and
fix it that way if the socket leg isn't broken.
It isn't at my house so I'll try to recall more detail. The base of the
socket appeared to be plastic. My guess is when the buld was being
removed the owner twisted right instead of left as the plastic itself
appears to have sheared.
Been looking at lighting assemblies via the web. See everything from
under $10 to over $200. If the project get that far I guess the biggest
concern the owner will have to deal with is how close a match to the
original is desired.
