so this is what happens when your "orange" bulb is really old
and the contact point is all melted

the bulb was out on the driver side ... but replacing the bulb didn't fix it
i put in new bulbs for both sides but original problem socket won't light up unless if i push the bulb in and hold it in with some pressure
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
Those sockets are known to go bad. It's like $10 for a replacement.
