09 Parking Light Trouble

Looking for some advice...

I noticed that my 09 passenger side front parking light was out a few weeks ago. I purchased a new bulb and went to switch it out. When I checked out the old bulb, it looked ok. I plugged it back in and it still worked when I turned the lights on.

A week or so later, the light was out again. I got it to go back on by just tapping on the headlight assembly. Then it was fine for a while.

That was happening more and more so I put the new bulb in anyways. It is still happening.

Thoughts? Loose wire maybe? As far as I can tell, it looks ok.

I dont know, it is kind of annoying. Anyone else had this problem? All other bulbs and fuses are ok. I would rather not take it in to the shop for something like this.

Connection in the harness. Possibly where the harness plugs into the bulb socket.

It can be a bit of a pain to separate, but get it apart (take your time) and put some tune-up grease on the pins.
