    Might be worth take the bulb out and making sure it is making proper contact.

    may have started to melt the connector on the bulb housing.

    The bulb is on it's way out, they show a fault before the bulb actually goes. Change the bulb and all will be well.

    I am getting something similar for my front left hand parking light - do i really have to remove the headlight to change this bulb?

    Ok had a play with the bulbs yesterday - it's hard getting your hand in between the light and the metal brace of the engine bay, but the bulb requires gentle pull straight back to remove ir
