Disco headlight dim

One headlight on my D1 is way dim, and I think it is a ground issue although I cannot find the location for the headlight ground. Thought it was the actual connector, cleaned, tightened, and adjusted but not one bit of light output increase or flicker from halogen bulb.

Wiring from lights enter loom and travel back into bigger loom headed to the bulkhead. If I had a damn lift I might have better luck, but doing the sanford and son garage skills I am trying to locate the right ground location for the headlights. Anyone know?

Wires at connector appear fine, no burn marks, wire & connector look completely fine. Other headlight works great, no issue.

Found crap ground. Cleaned up and repositioned and all is well. Went ahead and cleaned other grounds while at it.

We had to do this on my kid's D1 twice. Second time around I filled the headlight connection with dialectic grease. One year or so out and still doing well. Had to do the same with the brake switch and the gear select wiring. He got stuck out without being able to get out of park. This is all on a cherry D1. Time kills electronics.
