Unplugged from the original globe and inserted spade terminals into stock loom which then go to the HID's also had to add extra grounds for the HID's. The left hand one flickers on and off dimly if this helps at all? The third green wire on the original plug does not have anything plugged into it if that all makes sense

Well you've obviously got a wiring problem, sadly my mind reading is a little rusty these days.

How about some details/pics/diagrams etc...

Yeah I knew there was a wiring issue I've now sorted it out. Turns out that if I put the ground wire into the the terminal for the high beams on the H4 plug as opposed to putting it into the ground terminal the high beams will function
Thanks guys
