This is yet another Jeep Thing

So, got myself (what I thought to be) a small electrical issue on my TJ....

A while ago my indicators stop to work, replacing everything from flasher relay to fuses did not solve this... So today trying to ensure, again, that all the bulbs are working, earths etc, something else came up...

Now, when I switch the headlights on, I can hear a banging/tapping noise coming from the engine bay.. Having a peek under the bonnet I realise it's the left headlight making this noise. Come on, why would the headlight make a tapping noise, I can actually feel it when I put my hand on it...

Now hows that for an interesting issue..

Any ideas.. Is this the indicator/headlight switch going, is it the auto levelling motor in the headlight that's going, or is this a dodgy ground somewhere...

Any thoughts/ideas as to what surprise is awaiting me now..??
