Where is the earth point?

for the rear lights?

My N/S/R side light was dimmer then the O/S/R

I changed the bulb as it had gone black. I did the same to the N/S/F side light bulb as it had done the same.... bit odd being the same side.

anyway, my question is where is the earth point for the N/S/R light? Because when i have the indicators on the rear side light is slightly flashing with the indicator. Its only slight but will get worse id imagine.
I've had a look behind the light unit when changing the bulb but can only see the connector for the lights.

Silver, they were clean. I was expecting to see dirt or staining but no. They are ZR trophie lights not standard.
