1988 944 TurboS Headlights

Electrical

Vehicle Information: Model(924/944/968): 944 Turbo S; Year: 1988; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 81,000;

The headlights on my car are malfunctioning by repeatedly going up and down when turned on. I switch them on and after a few miles they start going up and down on their own. This frequently (but not always) is triggered by hitting a small bump in the road. I've changed the fuse, changed the relay on the motor and had the contacts cleaned -- to no avail. Oddly enough, this has happened on three of the four 944s I've owned (plain, S2 and Turbo. Mechanics can't figure it out. Now to add to the mystery, this a.m. the right headlight didn't shine when opened, but it came on when I depressed the clutch. Help (or get me some of the non-moving lights from the old race car)!
