    Headlight Fuse - Where?

    Hi guys

    My headlight bulb went the other day, so after a bit of playing around, I put the 'duff' bulb in the other side, and it worked - So the bulb actually works

    So, next I tried to find the Fuse for it - But, no idea where it is

    The owners manual says NOTHING about the headlight fuse, its all about adjustment and washers, but nothing for the actual fuse....

    Does anyone know? Its a 57 reg 1.6 3 door sxi...

    Thanks
    Tom

    Tom I can't find anything for fuses in the diagrams either, maybe i'm looking in the wrong place but I went through every under bonnet fuse

    It may be because it's computer controled the computer monitors the current drawn by the bulb so if it's to much or to little just cuts power to it

    I just had a quick look again, the bulbs that are in the car are 80w bulbs, both worked perfectly until yesterday

    I tried a good old standard bulb in it as well, and still didnt work?

    I think its a fuse, but if there isnt a fuse what do I do!

    Try fuse FE23, FE31 & FE33 in the underbonnet fuse box. All 3 are listed as being connected with front lights
