Problems with lights, again.

I've been having a terrible time with my lights on the 330. First, I had all four front bulbs replaced. One of the high beam bulbs actually came loose and fell out of the headlight. Tonight on my way home, my passenger's side low beam went out. Also, for ages now it has been saying I have a light out on the passenger's side in the rear. I've checked EVERY light and none are out. I noticed that while no bulb is actually out, the entire tail-light, including brake lights, turn signal and reverse light, are all much dimmer than the other side. I checked all the bulbs, none are loose. Could it be a fuse or something?

could it perhaps be the connector between the lights and the car?

How long did you have the new bulbs in before the passneger side low beam went out again?

Yeah - sounds more like a connector problem than a fuse. If it was a fuse, the lights would be out completely. Try tightening all your lights connectors, front and back - at least those you can find and reach. GL Joel and let us know how it goes!

I checked the connectors tonight. There was a TON of dirt in there.. I live on a dirt road.. go figure. Anyways, I cleared out the dirt and they're working fine now. Thanks for the advice, everyone!
