In my experience the plastic part is only to physically hold to the printed circuit board.  The bulb has 2 looped wire connectors that plug into the plastic socket.  Pull the bulb a go look for a replacement.  As to the cracked plastic try epoxy.  Yours just might work as is.

Get 2 worn out small diameter drill bits.  Clamp the 2 parts in correct alignment.  Take a new drill bit the same or just slightly larger in diameter to the 2 hanger queens.  Drill 2 holes through the clamped up remnant.  Squirt a LITTLE epoxy into the holes.  Dip the worn out drill bits in epoxy and slam them into the 2 drilled holes.  The spirals will provide enough "grip" to secure the joints. Go away until tomorrow.  Take your best Dremel tool cut-off wheels and trim the drill bit shafts as close as you have the nerve to do.  Install with or without finish grinding on the cut off surface, I think you will have enough clearance without grinding.  Good Luck!

Have you checked with Evans Upholstery in Gardena?  Corner of Artesia and Youkon.  They have a ton of reupholstery materials.  They even matched my 1967 RL411 pattern many many years ago.  It was "Wallaby" as in Kangaroo and was an exact match to the factory vinyl fabric,

Oh!  I forgot to add "FREE ! "  I would have taken this set to the JCCS, but I will be in Japan that day.  If you are close to Southern Calif I will ship free.  If you are in Tibet, lots of luck!
