Edit:
Ok i replaced the globe, now this is really weird to me...
When i put the lights on parkers, there are no lights... the light doesnt show at all... So there must be something wrong with the relay or something
can anyone point me in the right direction as i am almost certain this is the problem.

cheers

---------------
Original:
i just noticed this the other day... on my ef xr6, when i have the driving lights on, it seems to me that the rhs driving light is much brighter than the lhs..

it almost looks like the rhs is on 'high beam'. anyone point me in the right direction?

can it be linked to my lhs brake light not working? (has anyone got diagrams on how to remove the taillights to replace globe? thanks)

cheers guys

Dodgy or corroded electrical connections?
Why not just replace the taillight globe and then see if that is related? I don't see the globe being hard to do, you prolly just open the boot remove and plastic pannel, remove the globe holder and remove globe from that.

Check the aligment on the headlight assemblies. The rhs might be aimed too high which will look like high beam.

thats what i thought.. but basically when i press high beam... the light doesnt change brightness... the other side does though.. and when u let go.. it stays the same on the right, and the left changes back to original.

there only single filament globes (h1 in outter and H3 in inner) in each housing so it should not change when you go from high beam to low beam. When your on low beam the outside housings should be illuminated, when you turn on high beam, the outside housings should remain illuminated as they were before, the only difference being that the inner housings are now also illuminated.

Check that you haven't accidently knocked the plug off the parkers when replacing the headlight globes.
