Dim Dip failure - resistor failure?

Recommended Posts

Evening all,

Just noticed today that my dim dipped feature has failed. Normal dipped beam still works in the headlight switch position but the sidelight switch position only brings on the two small sidelights not the dim headlights. I have looked in the Haynes manual which describes a resistor limiting the headlights to sixth power when in sidelight mode. Could it be this that has failed and if so where is it?

Any ideas much appreciated.

Usually in Tdi's mounted under the RH wing, screwed to the galvanised inner wing panel.

you may have better luck getting to it by removing the wing-top vent blanking plate and reaching your hand in. it's usually gold colour, about 2~3" long
