Why do the front turn signal bulbs burn out so often???? on 2005 Cadillac SRX

I'll now have to replace the left front turn signal bulb for the second time.... Bulb only cost $1.50 but it takes 2 hours to replace it.... Before I do this again does anyone know of a fix that will last????

Any moisture in light assem.? Also check the bulb socket for rust. Bulb may still be ok.

There must be a problem/fix, for everyone that I've ever spoken too that has a SRX has the same problem.... By-the-way, no moisture and zero rust....

Are you touching the bulbs with your fingers? If so, the bulbs may not last long...you need to wear gloves.
