Had a warning message that came up. check headlights. Which I have & they are all working.

The only thing I noticed was that one of the Xenons flickered slightly - is this an early stage of failure or do they just pop?

Anyone had this warning? or a headlight problem?

thx

Thanks, Scottie.

Booked the car in for an examination of the headlight & the seat adjuster thingy.

I haven't got the xenon lights but had a dash warning about "check lights" about 3 weeks into ownership...went round the front and noticed the N/S headlight was out...and the technical adjustment I tried (thump) didn't fix it.

"Oh bugg*r" I thought...and as it was late decided to fix matters the next day. The next day came & the light was working again and has done for the subsequent 2 months...(I'm tempting fate now, I know).

At least I didn't have to try & follow the headlight removal instructions from the handbook!

That's what I thought too...done just over 3,500 miles now. At this rate it should be another 12 months before it goes in

Just had both Xenon bulbs changed & it seems to have cured the flicker.
There is a VW dealer bulletin about this problem apparently.
