Occasionally, About three times now, my left front turn signal stops working. I take it apart and re position the bulb and it now works until it stops again.

It seems that the bulb just does not make a solid connection and vibration makes it come loose.

Anyone else have this problem? Guess the next time it happens I will change out the bulb. However, the bulb works when repositioned.

May need to change the socket and short pigtail to it.
Try a new bulb first. Could be the internal part of the bulb.

Kit could be right... The socket may be sloppy. Try to bend the contacts in the socket in to the middle a tad with a scribe or ice pick ( something small and pointed ) or bend the tabs on the light bulb out some and then put it back in the socket. That works some times, but have another bulb in-case the wires on the bulb are brittle from heat, and break off......
