Renault Espace - Front Sidelight Intermittant*FIXED*

The other day my o/s/f side light was not working (espace iv). Anyway thought I would get a new bulb once I had worked out how to access it.

Just before I did I gave the headlight unit a light tap and it suddenly came on - has been working since.

Do you think it is the bulb on the way out or a loose connection at the bulb or something else. I was going to take the cover off behind the bulb and check the connection.

But maybe I should leave it alone and see if the light eventually stops working again. Then check the connection.

Funnily enough I did have a bulb in the kitchen that intermittadently went off - check all electrics - it ended up being the bulb itself!

Any ideas/thoughts appreciated?
