brake light

My 68 912 has an intermittant brake light on the driver's side that won'y stay working. Every thing looks clean and fits tight and works for a few stops and then quits. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks!

If all the other lights (rear light, turn signal, backup) in the unit have the same problem, its likely a bad ground. If only the brake light intermits, check the lamp fitting. Clean the contact surfaces with some fine steel wool.
