Fender light keeps burning out

As the subject reads, my drivers side fender parking light continues to burn out. Third bulb.. What gives? Nothing looks broken. In an effort to avoid the stealership.. Got any ideas?

I had one on my 11 that kept blowing bulbs, figured out that the socket got wet and the inside was corroded.

Was it cleanable? Or had to replace it?

I see you're in greensburg. I'm in monroeville. What dealerships would you not go to for work? Or do you go to the one that sold you the jeep?

Sorry to bring this to the top again, but mine also burnt out. What is the part number for the bulb? Will my local auto parts store have it? Thanks?
