The head lights are fine just when i try to flick onto full beam... nothing... basically the inner "spots" dont work so when i flick the full beam on the head lights just switch to side lights rather than both sets coming on "head lights and spots"

Bugging me. Shocked

I arent running high wattage bulbs... It is a uprated tidy wiring loom. I think relay possibly, but as you may well know looking under the bonnet of a mk2 golf the wiring isnt really easy to sus. I need someone with know how to either come have a look or explain what im looking for im useless as i say with wiring. Give me a spanner to work with im fine but if its voltmeters etc forget it! lol
