HELP! That low beam is important!

Some times it can be a stupid little thing. On my whole trip to Utah in September I had a intermittent low beam, but reliable high beam. I push/pulled on the wiring inside the headlight, changed bulbs, cleaned connections, nothing. Finally at home I found that at the main plug-in where the harness connects to the headlight the springclip was lost, and the connection to the low beam was intermittent but high beam was OK.
