I need a license plate bulb housing...where to find?

Does anyone know where I can find one of these little guys? It seems the local auto part stores do not carry them. Am I stuck having to deal with the dealer?

TIA.

Go to any Ford dealer. IIRC, it is about $7.

As we're on the topic of the license plate lights.......here's a good tid bit of information for everyone. When one of those little bulbs break, use tools to remove the bulb and NOT your fingers. I went to replace a bulb and the tip was cracked so I tried to pull it out of the tight harness with my forefinger and thumb....yes the pain was coming. I squeezed it a little too hard and the bulb broke causing my finger and thumb to be stuck with shards of broken glass. Talk about a pretty deep, very painfull, bloody mess.

Moral of the story, never use your bare hands.

Yes this would be why I either wear gloves or use a rag when pulling lights that require some squeazing.
