I have an 89 325i and at random, the left turn signal indicator on the dash stops working. Is there a easy fix for this?

Does it work and then it'll start clicking fast like a light is out or does it blink and then not blink? There's a big difference.

No, the blinker works normally and the front and rear lights blink fine. The dash indicator doesn't always work. It appears to be a loose connection or maybe the filament on the bulb is ready to break. Before I start taking apart the dash, I though I would ask if anyone else had fixed this problem.

To get the cluster out of an E30 isn't that hard. 30min tops with basic hand tools and a haynes/bently manual.
