Outside lights question

The other day we went and checked all lights around our 2012 357QS, I had 3 clearance lights out, went back 2 days later to take a look and they were working again. I then checked all turn signals etc and they (the turn signals) were out, a slap with my hand and back on again so I took off a few lenses and found the bulbs were moving around and sometimes not making contact. My question is has anybody else had this problem and if so what was the fix? I was hesitan to pull the bulbs out because they weren't coming out very easily but I could wiggle them and they would go off and on. They are all working now but I'm sure some driving and bumps will change that.

Thanks again for any help.

Immediate, cheap fix is to remove bulbs and sand the inside of the light socket and the metal end of the bulbs.

I will check again but the inside of the lens was clean and dry with no visible signs of any thing that would cause corrosion. Does anybody know how to remove the turn signal lens, the only thing I see is they have a couple of nuts on studs on the inside of the bumper.
