    Hi,

    A quick an urgent one please.

    My headlight bulb has been working intermittently due to the loose connecter behind it. I changed the bulb yesterday as it was blown and the new bulb does not work. Also checked the fuse and all is OK. The new bulb is fine and seems OK.

    What else should I be looking at? Should I try another new bulb?

    Cheers

    You really need to check for 12 volts at the connector. But you could try another bulb.
    If the connector is loose you need to gently bend the metal connector with a small flat screwdriver.

    Get some dieelectric grease and coat the connector to keep copper blueish corrosion at bay.

    Was the fuse you pulled out of the recommended rating as per the fuse box lid? All likehood is people pull other fuses which are insignificant to get things working.
