    If they are filling with water they are most likely cracked. You can buy the housings on ebay and the socket at autozone. Very easy to replace

    Yep.

    Most likely the housing got too warm, cracked, let in water and has fried the socket

    yeah that is a common problem with T/A's, it should only take you about 2 hours at most to fix very easy fix.
