hey all just hoping someone on here has had a similar problem and know the quick fix? my low beam headlights have recently decided they dont like going anymore, i hoped in the car the other day and turned my lights on to find it rather dark :? my high beams and fog lights still work so i just checked a few under dash fuses and in the engine bay but nothing was blown that i could see? does anyone know which is the fuse for them our possibly relay?

cheers nick

Stupid question time: You've checked the bulbs, right?

Also check the bulb socket. I think water got into mine and they basically melted to bits.
