Left brake light keeps going out

Seems like a loose connection between the wiring harness and the bulb holder. I can pull it apart and tighten the connection then shut the hatch and it will go out again. Has anyone had any similar issues? Wondering if maybe replacing the bulb holder could fix the issue?

Have the same exact issue on my car. Usually comes back on if I restart my car. Didn't have the problem until I got a dogbone insert, and anti lift kit. Really annoying. Subbed for solutions.

Yeah this is quite annoying trying to figure out if it's a wire issue or possibly the connection between the harness and the pins on the bulb holder.

Fixed (for now) the bulb had a small amount of play in the socket so every bump or closing the hatch it's losing connection. Switched the bulb and seems to be fine. Ordered a new holder off ecs anyways, maybe new part will fix the problem for good.
