electrical problems / strange noises??

hi everyone

my clio 1.5 dci (2003 with 48k on clock) has had a few probs lately, wondering if they could be related...

1) the electrics been playing up - rear foglight flashing on dash when brakes applied and indicating. comes and goes. radio dispay fading but coming back with a quick thump...etc

2) the two front headlights went at the same time, replaced bulbs and they worked, altho old bulbs didnt actually look blown...but the new ones appear to have worked fine since

3) when i turn steering wheel i have noticed that the headlights fade slightly

4) the last wee while there has been a strange vibrating noise happening when the engine started from cold, goes once engine warmed up... also appears to less of a noise when i turn steering wheel to full lock. only really heard inside car, not from inside engine..

have seen posts with people with similar problems, but not all together...or not with a solution...

gona check the earthing on rear light cluster at weekend for light problems...

other people have mentioned auxillary belt, alternator, worn bearings in alternator...

i'll prob have to take to garage, but wanted to just check with you's whaat you thought? dont know if to tell garage all above...they always look at me like the daft female!

any suggestions would be great... thanks!
