Anyone has a good solution for fixing a loose light fuse. When I'm driving the alfa, the shaking of the engine or going over a bump will loosen the fuse for the turn signal. Is there a better way to fix this beside me trying to squeeze the two end together?

Bullet fuses?

Squeezing is about it as over time and heat, the contacts lose thier spring properties.

If you've a pre~86 S3, you can upgrade to the late S3 blade fusebox with very little effort.
(straight up wire swapping once the cover of the older has been put in place of the release handle of the newer)

If dealing with an older S1~S2 version, I believe some of the vendors sell repro's, or you can keep what you have and put small rubber bands or stretched o-rings if you want something heavier across the terminals once the fuse is installed. (sounds dumb but works quite well)
