It would explain the funny squeak at 3000rpm

I've been pottering around in the Dacia for a few days and the starting issues are definitely improving.  It sometimes starts first time, though it is often 3rd or 4th.  I drove it down to a friendly breakers earlier as they are generally good for finding a part that fits.  The gaffer explained that I couldn't just wander round anymore and wasn't really supposed to go into the yard but still found someone to escort me in.  The lad said there weren't any suitable headlight donors in the yard so led the way into a shed stuffed with lights for shite.  We found one round headlight that was too big, one the right size which was a foglight and then struck slightly rusty gold.

Labelled 'capri' it should cut down to provide adjustable mounting for dipped beam lights on each side.  The main beams can stay as they are.  Best £5 I've spent in ages.

 

On the way home the Dacia played its party trick of loosing power to the dash.  Apart from the speedo all the gauges fell to zero and all warning lights stopped working.  It did it for long enough this time that I could find the problem.  One of the fuses had corroded,  if wriggled everything comes back on.

 

What does the AS massive think of these?

Are those the generic replacements everyone suggested to start with & got shot down?

Quite possibly but when they were suggested we didn't have a way to mount them.  I've stayed out of the headlight discussion up till now as I couldn't work out what to do from a photo.  With the rusty lump in front of me I could see if the Ford part would fit,  it won't but I can chop it up to provide bits to make the generic lamps fit.

Indeed. The shooting down was mostly because people kept on, in several places, recommending lamps that did not fit easily. At that time, I was still hoping to find a set that would plumb straight in. Cats has more skills, so more options. I suspect relays might be an idea given what we already know about quality* electrics...

And not remove the motif either.
