Re: [DML] Left directional woes

You might try a piece of copper foil as a shim between the bulb and socket rather than trying to pinch the socket. Also, some dielectric grease will prevent corrosion. I live near the ocean too.

Also try sanding the contact surface of the bulbs. Front and rear. I live close to the ocean and have to do this routinely to mine to keep them working as they build up corrosion resistance.

I cannot seem to find a way to get my left rear directional bulb to 
stay in the socket. I'm now on my third citcuit board (a "new one" 
from DMC). It works fine for a time but after a while I get the fast 
blink again. The bulb is fine and I don't really want to get another 
circuit board. I have tried pushing the connector on the board up and 
down with a pencil eraser and I have tried squeezing the clamps around 
the bulb a bit but performance is still intermittent. Any thoughts?
