76 cherokee tail light socket

i keep having trouble with one side.the contacts are worn way down and i dont think it has any spring left to it to push outward.i see autozone sells a socket for the 1157 bulb.can i put this in from the outside without removing the housing?
ill need to be quick about this tomorrow at lunchtime at work.or do you have any ideas on how to get the current one to work?

The ones I've gotten from the parts store push in from the back side.

i couldnt even get the bulb out.i was afraid it was going to break in my fingers.its a new bulb and i didnt have another so i shoved a couple of sheetmetal slivers alongside the bulb in the socket in a spot where it got good contact.all good for now!

I have a socket I took out for LED conversion.. It's a bit mangled where it seats, but could be put back into a stock housing. from a 77. yours for shipping cost if you want it. has the stock pigtails on the wire still.
