What is this piece and where to get replacement?

In the attached photo you will see the light fixture above the sink in our motorhome's bathroom. Today I tried replacing the factory incandescent bald with an LED bulb I got on Amazon. The LED bayonet is quite a bit thicker than the original glass bulb and I really had to push it and force it to get it in. Consequently the little receptacle was slightly distorted and is now too big for the glass bulb.

I decided the LED bulb was too damn, so I don't wish to use it in this location, but the glass bald won't fit. So I feel like I should replace that little receptacle piece. It looks like it comes out.

Is it replaceable? What it is called?

Just get a small flat screwdriver and bend the tabs back together.

Try turning the bulb over?

The LED pad wires are keyed and the socket may be flatted by the LED pad you had previously.

You could try spreading the bulb leads if the socket is too loose.
