2005 Malibu right rear blinker?


Is there a weak spot in connections on a 2005 Malibu? My sons car I am trying to help fix for him. We played with this once before and it started working again,,however not sure what we moved or wiggled to get it to. We was woking inside the trunk,,thats all I can remember. its sorta cold to be outside working on it now,but in a month or so we will!!! Is there a place we can dialectic grease that would give better connections??

You will prolly need to replace the "connector plate" about $45.00 from dealer or check AZ for availability. VERY common problem with newer GMs.

This is true. And YES, a dielectric grease is available at most parts stores. But-the "connector plate" is the likely problem. We sell many of these. Some connector plates fit many models. David

felt real stupid but bet others have same problem.

bulb fits in socket same both ways. one way it slips in and slips out.

other way it sort of 'clicks' in place and doesnt rattle out down the road,like the other way.

Somebody before me replaced it and got it backwards i spect.

Didnt know it COULD fit both ways and only stay in one way. thanks for the replies and hope this helps others.
