i swapped the turn signal sockets for now since i need a visible LEFT turn signal in the front, not so much for the right
nah, it's not because the bulb is old. it's because the bulb is running too hot. just pull the metal tab up on the bottom with a flat. that should give it enough contact for it to work.
