Ive ruled out the bulb, unless im unlucky over 3 bulbs haha, but the passenger side light's high beam does not work, regular beam does and the other light works in both modes, the wiring visible at the back of the light looks fine as does the fuses so im stumped as to where to look next?


anyone know a likely weak spotto check or am i at the point of sending a sparky on a chase?

Almost certainly the indicator/light stalk.


Jiggle it.


Take it out. Clean the contacts (WD40 and a cotton bud will work). Make sure they're all touching where they should.


If all else fails, replace with a gazelle/pulsar/exa stalk from same era.

i was sceptical since it was just one highbeam but turns out that is indeed the case, after some banging and jiggling the second high beam flickered to life, only breifly though, cleaned all the things and such but now none of them work lol time for a new stalk
