Well I've never had to replace it so not sure, but from the attached list, it looks like either one of these in the engine compartment fuse box:

FL8 50A BC1 (X332 20) Headlight
or
FL12 50A BC1 (X332 17) Headlight

You could also try this from the passenger compartment fuse box:
F8 5A Turn indicator/low beam switch

I'm only guessing it's a fuse as both lights went at the same time and nothing else is broken.

Of course it could be a problem with the switch on the stalk?
