Checking the earth on GT sidelights
Can anybody help.
I've recently bought a 07 plate GT. Love the car and have enjoyed every minute of ownership so far (although it's only been a week).
One small niggly problem though...the front near side side-light has gone twice in a week. Everybody I have discussed this with has concluded 'sounds like a bad earth' and I 'should check it against a known good connection' or similar. At this point I nod sagely and mutter something about checking that out.
The truth is I have no idea what to do, I can change a bulb and that's about it - I re-enter the house like a hunter/gatherer with suitably oily hands and feeling very manly.
Using the anonymity that the internet offers, I now issue a plea for help - can anybody tell me how I would check the earth on the sidelight? I've looked through the forums and this seems to be a fairly regular problem so I'm hoping that there is a fairly easy solution that will also allow me to recharge my testosterone.
