Bad fuel pump relay/socket

Recent difficult starting and poor running problems in my '89
200TQ have been traced to the fuel pump relay.  The relay has
been replaced but I'm still having some problems with the car. 
This AM it fired for about 5 revolutions of the engine and that
was it.  Attempted restart was futile.  I removed the cover for
the fuse box and wiggled the relay in its socket and the  car
started right up and ran O.K. after that.  Methinks I gotta bad
socket for the relay.

What's involved with replacing the relay socket?  Do I need to
replace the entire fuse box as my fiendly (sic)  Audi Dealer
tells me or can I just replace the socket?  Any tricks or
incantations I should be aware of?
