Xenon Fault

Hi, I'm having a fault with the Passenger Xenon Headlight on my 05 R53 MCS. Both lights were working fine up unitl about a week ago. then the passenger headlight started to act up. At first it didnt come on on start up, would give give a flicker like a florence tube light, but would go out, then as driving sometimes it would come on but wasnt as bright as the driver side. Then it started to work for a cpl days from start up but again not as bright as the drivers (slightly dimmer). Now it's not coming on atall, giving the odd flicker at start up but thats it. Any ideas what i need to do to get this fixed, havent much experience with Xenon's, thanks.

Ronnie

I am no expert but suspect you may need a new Xenon bulb. This is a dealer fit and the bulb is not cheap, plus labour.

I would suggest popping into your garage and let them check it out.
