Default Turn signal / blinker socket source

Does anyone know where I can purchase a front turn signal bulb socket/holder? This is the socket which has two wires (black and brown) coming off of it going to a small connector a few inches away on the headlight assembly. I'm having intermittent turn signal failures on my '99 cabriolet (fast blink on passenger side).

I have spent a bunch of time diagnosing this and believe the issue is with the two-pin female connector that plugs into the headlight assembly near the bulb holder but figured I would replace the bulb holder at the same time.

Seems that Porsche does not sell the bulb holder separately, I was able to find the two-pin female pin connector on a Mercedes site (the male side is on the headlight assembly) but am having a hard time finding the bulb holder itself (it twists into the headlight assembly and holds the bulb).

Anyone? Ideas? This is for Non-Lintronic. Just the standard lights. Really need to fix this turn-signal issue.

Just bend the metal spring contacts out a bit with a small screwdriver ... Fixed mine and has been working for a year now

Bump. I'm possibly having the same issue. The insulation on both the black and brown wires is cracking.
