Dash bulbs sockets broken

Hey guys, I'm replacing all the dash bulbs on my 95 with leds. As I pull the dash bezel, I'm finding that the little "wings" on the black 1/4 turn sockets that hold the socket into the housing are broken. I know it's a dumb question and should replace the sockets, but does anybody have any other ideas how to hold them in place? They're the rocker switch bulbs, and hvac bulb. I haven't gotten behind the instrument cluster yet. Thx

Re: Dash bulbs sockets broken

there are none of those kind of sockets behind the cluster. you can try and get creative with rtv, but makes it a mess later. i'd go to a jy and cutt some good bulb sockets out of a donor car. there are 5 in total. 2 left of wheel, 2 right of wheel, 1 hvac.
