Hi Macphil. It is definetely an earth problem.

Have you cleaned all the contacts, both on the multi plug and the light board? have you tried gently bending the pins in the multi plug connectors to "strengthen" the connection between the two?

If all else fails the best way to resolve this is to make up a new earth lead from the lamp boards to the car body. The earth for both clusters on these cars is very weak so a new earth should hopefully do the trick
