Gear indicator light problem

On my Arrow, my right main gear indicator light seems to be giving me some trouble. It lights up, but extremely dim so hard to see during daylight while the the front and left main gear indicator lights are bright green. It isn't the bulb as when I swap out the lights with another position, the bulb is full brightness. I've recently had some avionics work done so while they had the panel apart, I asked them to check the wires for looseness but no issues were noted (the problem existed before the work was done). I had my mechanic try cleaning the switch around the gear itself thinking it may be a switch problem but no luck.

Any ideas? Thought about having my mechanic replace that entire right gear socket or is there something else that could be wrong?
