Default Front passenger turn signal not working

Took my 99 SF5 to a body shop to have some work done on the upper radiator support and to have the passenger front fender changed for one in better condition. When I took it in, both front turn signal were working but when I got it back, the passenger front turn signal was not working. That is the side, I had the fender swapped for a new one. I changed the bulb, twice, and still not working; the rear signal blinks and I get a rapid blinking on the interior dash light. The parking light portion of the bulb works but the bulb feels very loose in the socket. It's the same light housing as before I took it to the shop so I'm confused as to a solution.Any suggestions???

Since the bulb is loose in the socket then I would suspect that the socket has been damaged somehow. I assume that the correct bulb is being used. To make sure that power is getting to the socket you could use a test light probe to verify that the socket is getting the signal power to it.

I agree that it is probably the socket but I'm trying to avoid splicing in a new socket ( just not in the mood). Will just squeezing the socket do any good? Can't hurt something that needs to be replaced. Thanks for the help.

If the socket is too wide around then it should work okay by bending the sides in slightly. Make sure the electrical contact surfaces are clean.
