Sometimes the printed circuit the socket makes contact with gets torn or folded back.

It's probably easier to drop the steering column, unscrew the speedo cable, take the screws out of the cluster (5?) pull it forward a little and squeeze the electrical connector sides to unplug it. Then you can see what the back looks like.

The socket contacts also get bent "down" and don't make good contact with the circuit board. Most people just bend them up away from the socket a bit to make better contact when installed. Sometimes the contacts in the socket itself (to bulb) need some help, too. Just about all of mine needed some kind of tweeking...
