flasher relay

My 1995 e320 has had flasher/hazard/intermittent wiper problems. Basically all of the above come and go. I figure it is the combo relay, but I don't think the part has failed because all of the above work about 40% of the time. I checked the relay -- it seems to not sit tightly in its socket. If i wiggle the relay, i can get the flashers to both work and not work. Will the problem likely be fixed with a new relay in the same socket? Does it matter if my temp. fix is a piece of paper towel jammed between relays to hold this one tightly in place? Don't know if that is safe or not, but it seems to do the trick.

Thanks in advance.
