You can try holding the socket part in a cup of boiling water for a few seconds and then popping it back in. Be very careful. You don't want it to melt or you to get burned.

Hope it works for you!

Are you open to glue or hot glue?

I would use some putty around the arm opening and put the arm back in.

I think there is a small elastic that is missing that holds this in place if I am not mistaken. I know you can't use glue or puddy because the arm is to move up and down.

This would restrict the movement of the arm. I would check on adding a reall small piece of string or a tiny elastic band to the joint and putting it back in.
