non-working socket in 70's builder grade bathroom lighting with 6 total sockets


One of the 6 sockets in my master bathroom fixture does not work. I don't want to spend the $ to replace the entire fixture, so I'd like to just replace or fix the one socket, but I don't know how. To complicate my situation, I can't find anything on the fixture to loosen, unbolt, adjust, ... to get it off of the wall, so I need help with that as well.
Any suggestions?

You have to undo the porcelain pieces behind the bulbs if there are any, then once off, you should either be able to pry the cover off, or there should be screws either on top, or the bottom, or somewhere on the face holding it. From there, you can remove, and then put up the new fixture.
