    It's not the lamps!
    It's probably not the fuses, as it seems there's one for each lamp.
    Both main beams work properly.
    Both parking lights, and both tail lights, work.

    I suspect a relay, but as there is no indication of which relay or fuse does what on the fusebox lid then I will have to check every fuse and relay sequentially unless some kind soul can point me towards the location of an online wiring diagram.

    It could be a column switch fault too.

    Thanks for your inputs.
    @baldykev there is a fuse for each dipped headlight, so the chances of both failing is remote.

    On further inspection during daylight hours I found that one lamp had indeed blown, the other having a poor electrical connection. Both now cured, both headlights working again.:idea:
    that was not a correct statement.
