I arrived back from a run today to notice that both the offside front lamps had stopped working, wing lamps and headlamps/side lamps. I looked at the fuses but all seems fine, nearside lights are all working - this seems strange, any one out there with ideas on this?

Have a look at the earth connections for the offside?

Also check the condition of the wiring under the wing. It is a tough environment. I replaced the bullet connectors on mine as they were badly corroded and intermittent lighting issues., I had to cut them off as they were solid. Replaced and sealed the new spade ones with shrink tubing.

Proper electrical test of the relevant fuse necessary. Often visual checks are insufficient.
If it has blown you will want to find why - did you have anything plugged into the accessory socket (which may well be on the same fuse)?

It's not the fuse if it affects both headlamp and sidelights, but likely a common earth. There is a four way connector behind offside headlamp bowl. The wiring diagram suggests this is in a bag taped to back of bowl. Check the black earth wire integrity here. If ok then check the actual chassis earth by tracing the black wire that runs to 5mm ring connector bolted to chassis/wing.

OK much appreciate the information. I will take a look tomorrow morning and see if it might be within my limited capability, otherwise a trip to Bell and Colvill for a warranty fix.
Yesterday I took it to them for a diff leak investigation, on the way the engine warning light came on which they reset. Today it came on again and so I imagine that something is going on in the labyrinth.
As you can probably sense I’m less than a novice at anything to do with cars and especially electrics which of course is a form of magic.

Check the connections next to the wiper motor.
If connections got loose there some strange effects may be the result.

The Golden rule with Morgans regarding electrical issues is first check the Earths. The Prince of Darkness lurks everywhere!!
