I recently replaced my bulb for the third time and the insulator had grown brittle I am guessing from the heat and it broke. I can't seem to find this part for sale anywhere. Does anyone know if is possible to purchase it?

The screws in step 8 are extremely hard to get off. I went and bought proper screwdrivers before even attempting since theyre small, but in a day I've only managed to get one off and I'm having to resort to other tactics, even using a drill to just grind the heads off.
