One of the brake lights is not working, slapping the pod makes it work for a bit then it goes again

Now I have had the pod off and the brake bulb base and socket contacts are all shiny clean, so I dont think it's a bad connect in there

The pod connects to the body with 2 hex screws at the boot and two 'poles' at the other end.

Could it be bad earth at those poles? except the indicators work fine.

I can fix most things on the car but these electrical things drive me crazy!

Thx

Nick,

Light bulbs which come back on after a slap, to me indicate that the filament has parted slightly and the vibration of the hit makes them flutter about and they sometimes touch and fuse together again, allowing it to work for a short while. Replace the bulb.
