There should be plenty of these available at a salvage yard for cheap if
you can harvest them yourself.  Several models used the same bulb
holder for backup and rear fog lights.  Get an extra.

The cause is a leaking taillight cover because of a leak through a
cracked lens or lock cylinder gasket.  The lens for the center  
section uses
a rope type sealant that usually doesn't leak unless someone tried to  
a dirty or badly torn piece.  If you have a cracked lens, look for a  
at the same time.  Any C4 part works for the center sections.
