Have a 2016 Renegade Trailhawk that has had issues with the passenger side light. I've changed the bulb a couple times and it always looks like one of the contacts on the bulb has lost some solder. Bulb is still good. Last time I cleaned the contacts on the socket and bent the prongs out a little and applied dielectric grease. It lasted a couple months. I tried to get a new socket at two auto parts stores and dealership. Dealership quoted me a price of $244.20 for just the socket. Someone must sell one cheaper than this? The bulb number is a 1157 and the brand was "Phillips". The socket looks like a $10.00 part that costs them 50 cents. It is a two filament bulb with two contacts on the bottom. I don't have any salvage yards nearby either, but may have to find one

68576890AA and another below it gpc97580 The parts guy seemed to be knowledgeable, but I can't see any reason why it should be that expensive.

I found one at 1A auto for about $100.00. for the light assembly. Of course I would have liked it cheaper, but much better than $244.20. Hope it cures our issue.
