    Hi there,

    My right low beam has flickered on and off twice during short journeys this evening. When I turn the lights off and on again it recovers for a while and then goes off. Any idea what is causing this?

    Thanks,
    Andy

    There are only really 3 components involved in this. A control unit, an ignitor and a bulb.

    A plug in should be able to tell you which one it is although none are a joy to replace!

    It's so ironic - I only had my inspection II done today and it was fine before then!

    Just had a quick call with the garage. He said it was probably a dodgy bulb - that the bulb is easy to replace and only costs about a fiver to buy. Is he right? Sounds too cheap...
