MG ZR ZS ZT Technical - ZT Headlamp wires

Just a warning to prevent anybody else having worse problems!!

It started as an intermittent warning on the dash telling me the sidelamp bulb had gone. On inspection it appeared still to be working. After 3 - 4 weeks it started staying on so I changed the bulb only to find that it would go on and off if you pushed on the whole headlamp unit. Looking at the manual there is an earth point under the RH headlamp unit so I suspected this was the problem as the headlamp also became intermittent. Anyway the car was due a service at a new garage I was trying the following day (usual dealers Edwards of Stratford had gone bust unfortunately, so had to try somebody else!)so, as it was a front end off job to get at it, I thought I'd leave it to them. Anyway it came back just the same in spite of them charging me
