Not really but if you do not feel comfortable about doing it yourself take it to a good mechanic it does not have to be the dealer.

You can usually do it yourself with the right tools. It does however have to be tight, not just sort-of tight. If you are unable to get it properly tightened for some reason than you will need a technician to do it. Your electrical system will not operate properly if connections are loose. If the problems you describe persist after tightening the connections and driving the car for a few days then I would suspect bad front wheel bearings and/or axle shafts.
