F250 clearance lights...

On my '00 F250, I have two clearance lights that are dim due to a bad ground. I was unable to lift the light up far enough to see how the leading screw actually grounds the light and am wondering if anyone has a remedy for this. I was able to determine that the ground issue is between the screw and the cab itself as opposed to being between the screw and the light fixture. Any thoughts on the issue and advice is appreciated!

usually items that use the mounting screw for a ground use the metal to metal contact of the screw to the body for the ground path.
There are no rules. You have to think!
