LED Experts..please chime in !!

So apparently one of my LEDs(Racing Dash) came loose and isnt making contact,so its not lighting up.When it does makes contact,it lights up.

Upon inspection,it seems like it needs some kinda of thermal compound.

Is there any particular compound I should use to fix it ?

here's a pic..

Looks like the solder came loose, you could resolder it but IMO, I would trash them. The RD units are not the greatest quality, we had to stop carrying them because of quality issues.

Yeah,I just dont know what I need to do to fix it.If I can't fix them i'll trash them,but I like to try to fix things before anything.I've had them for a while,and never had any issues until this.

Personally I've always liked my RD's..they look really nice.Sure they suck ass in direct sunlight,but it doesnt bother me that much.I love the color,i've yet to see some other LEDs that have that nice white/bluish led (other than OSS).They all look pure white.
