Taillight problem?

My passenger side brake light/blinker doesn't work most of the time. If I give the taillight a good knock, it'll work for a while again. I posted about this a while back and someone said something about a ground, but when I put my corners on last weekend I looked for what they were talking about and couldn't find it. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks

Well the stock lights ground to the tub. I found this out the hard way. Maybe some of the insulation is gone off of a wire some where and it will rub on metal and ground out?

So I replaced the bulb and it only worked the first time I tried the blinker; enough to make me happy about fixing the problem. Then I got in and drove it. And the blinker didn't work. Again. Where is the taillight grounded to the tub? Could it be a bad connection in the taillight housing itself, since if I just knock on the thing like a door once, it works again for a minute. I don't think that knock would be moving any wires around even if they did have insualtion gone..Any ideas? Thanks
