I'm assuming globe means bulb. I have replaced many bulbs that look fine, and that turns out to be the problem. But to stop you from chasing down a problem that isn't there, test the connector that attaches to the bulb. Should be power there with the head lights on. There should be a fuse, and a relay. The fuse is under the dash or on the side of the dash near the door hinges, I'm just not sure if this car would have seperate fuses for L headlight and R headlight. But you should check power first at the connector.

I own a 1990 Mazda MX5 and the headlights need adjusting - how do you adjust them please. The housing is flush with the bonnet so no need to adjust this just the aim.

After taking off the covers which suround the head lamps. There are two screws 1 in the 6 0`clock position to adjust the up and down position and one in the 9 0`clock position to adjust side to side position
