Replace the light socket. you can get them at your auto parts store. Get some heat shrink tube at the same time. It seals better than tape on the joints. Hope this helps.

If the bulb socket is melted you will want to replace the socket then use the socket grease (diaelectric) to keep the bulb socket clean of dirt and moisture. The diaelectric grease will help disipate the heat also.
If the bulb base was melted, you will want to clean the socket thuroughly and make sure no plastic has melted on the contacts causing a bad electrical contact.

make sure that you do not have an over rated fuse protecting that circuit, if you do replace it accordingly
