    #2 by the way: my 3057 bulb was fried brown and green on the contacts (one of 4 contact points especially) as I think I used way too much di-electric bulb grease last time I fixed in 2015. Partly due Scotty Kilmer and other bad i fo, I thought such grease WAS e-conductive, and I slathered all in socket and on contacts. I now know such Bulb Grease is NON-conductive and should be used on plastic/rubber parts of socket but try avoid getting right on contacts as can cause overheating of contact.

    If they are that badly corroded then I just get a replacement from RockAuto or any parts store and just swap out.

    I did the drill mod on the bottom edge of the light housing 10 yrs ago and haven't had one single issue since. I also swapped over to LED's about 3-4 yrs ago and haven't replaced a single bulb since.
