    Headlights

    I drive a Mk5 Sxi and both my main headlights have went (at the same time), so I'm left with no option but to drive with my full beam on at night.

    I am getting conflicting opinions regarding the cause of the problem - some say its my fuse and others tell me its the bulbs.

    Anyone got any ideas?

    I have exactly the same problem. Both main headlights have stopped working at the same time.
    First thoughts was fuse but cannot seem to locate one which operates the headlights.
    Any ideas?

    Given it's illegal to drive (even in daylight) with faulty headlights, I'd be getting them checked ASAP - you're just asking to be pulled over...

    For a few quid, changing the bulbs is the first port of call...
