I am trying to replace the bulb in the L right rear quarter area and the test light shows I'm getting voltage here but the mating piece is trashed. Where can I purchase a new one and what is it actually called. I attached a picture.

This is available from GM. The part number is 16524383. In the US, the dealership will be looking for about $24. If you're lucky enough to live in Canada, that price almost doubles. I've already replaced one of mine due to corrosion on the terminals.

Pulling up that part number reveals its called a socket.

What kind of shape is the connector attached to the wiring harness in? My problem was corrosion on the bulb side of the socket. It looks like your problem is on the side which the harness plugs into. Depending on how that connector looks, you might need to replace the wiring harness connector with a pigtail in addition to a new socket.
