Problem With Wiring On Front O/S.

Evening all,

Hope everyone had a nice christmas.

Anyways I seem to be having a constant problem with wiring on the front o/s, the basics of the problem is that the front o/s indicator works fine for a while then all of a sudden for no reason the o/s indicator light stops working.

We can use the right turn indicator with no problem still however it flashes as normal once or twice before going like a bat out of hell. Initially thought it was a problem with the bulb however after going through a few bulbs in a very short period of time, I pulled out and replaced the headlight and bulb however this has not sorted out the problem. :banghead :banghead

Does anyone know what the problem could be as not only is a hazard but both a problem for both us and other road users.

Our car is a 3 dr 53 plate 1.6 Megane Dynamique.

Many Thanks

Remove the bumper, then the headlight, and investigate. Be prepared to repair a connector, so have a needle file and silver conducting paint at hand. Removing the headlight and putting everything back together takes under half an hour, another half an hour will be spent on fiddling with the contacts.
