The tail lamps on my 1999 were replaced before I purchased it. I tried soldering the plastic connectors, but this fix only worked a few months for me. I got a little more aggressive by drilling a hole through the smaller plastic guide and the inner plastic base itself. I installed a sheet metal screw in the hole to form a more solid connection between the bulb circuit board and the plastic assembly. a $1 repair.
