Brake Light Not Working Due to Melted Bulb Holder Housing on Mercedes-Benz E430

Brake lamp housings can melt, resulting in a loss of contact for the brake light bulb holder. If this happens, the brake light will not work. Replacement of the damaged lamp housing should correct this problem.

This has to be my problem. I've replaced the bulb several times,works for a while, then get the "lamp defective" warning inn dash
Where can I find lamp housing because I think that is my problem. I replaced the bulb and it works for awhile, but its occurring more frequently. I've looked on line for the part but I must be calling it something different because when they show a pic of it its not what I am looking for. So tell me where I can find this part, how much, and how difficult is to replace.
