Yes I know how you feel. I'm in the process of sorting mine. Turned out to be the headlamp switch. Good luck cos I know they can be a pain. Still can't get my rear fog goin.

I got same problem, Rear passenger light not working and bulb is ok. Now after testing loads of times I think my headlight switch is broken. It didn't want to turn passed the sidelight positions.

Any help or advice would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Darren

I had a problem last month with mine. Some of the lights would work and some wouldnt and some were very dim. Fisrt thing you should do is clean the rear contacts and check and clean your earths. All worked perfectly after that.

The rear contacts were corroded. I got the dremel out with a wire brush end and made them like new.
