First i would remove the main fuse box and clean all the connectors, then i would remove the steering column cowling and lightly clean the contacts for the switches for the full beams. This will likely solve the vast majority of the issues.

Common fault and usually the fuse box but you need to clean the back of it up or best to replace. Take a photo/make notes/label all the wires on the fuse box, take it off the car and give the back a good clean, and use a wire brush to clean all the contacts. Make sure you put all wires back where they're supposed to be. Ideally replace the fuse box with a new one.
There are many cheap copies on the market but this is the real thing from Minispares:-

Poor earth connections are responsible for lots of misbehaving electrics, make sure all earthing points are clean, rust free and apply a little grease or vaseline over them.
