Thats because it IS just a big bunch of wires :o

 

There are two plugs behind the headlights, one each side of the radiator in some plastic covers. They are right in the middle of those two pics. Earth wires are green and yellow so they're easy to spot.

 

Find them then do this (as described in that other thread...):

 

Remove waterproof cover.

Unplug cables.

Cut ends off cables

Re-terminate with Ring terminations

Remove earthing block

Bolt re-terminated cables to stud that once held the earthing block.

 

Hey presto, lights brighter, horn and wiper washer work all the time!

 

Do the same on the other side!

also clean up or replace the yellow connectors for the spot lamps.

I had a very similar problem recently - one headlight would only work on dipped, and only one driving light would work. As I expected, it was due to bad earths in the places mentioned above :D
