So I see I'm not alone having problems with my dip beam. I don't have a VAG tester so no idea whats wrong. I'm not a complete nugget but don't claim to be an expert either so any advice is welcome.
The passenger side Xenon dip beam has never worked at all since I bought the car, not even a flicker. I've removed the ballast and just had a general inspection for damage and nothing obvious to see. Checked fuses and all is good. As you will be aware getting access to the drivers head light is a nightmare so if I decide to swap the igniter and ballast then the bumper will have to come off. (not the end of the world I guess)
Any advice? any simple checks I can do before pulling the car apart. Anyone got a good wiring diagram? The igniter has a thicker red and blue wire going to it. Daft question, is this a power supply? the two cables disappear into the headlight and I can't find the source ?? I have a volt meter but don't know where to start??
