Hi Jamie if they are xenon lights it sounds like either a duff bulb or ballast - water ingress can cause a short in the system
Worth checking out although it means removing the front bumper to get at it properly
Agreed. If it turns out to be the bulb you may need to replace both if you want an exact colour match.
These lamps are D2R type. You can get a pair from e-bay for about £60. Original Philips types cost about the same for a single lamp.
One thing to note is the colour temperature of the lamp. Original factory fitted units are usually 4300Kelvin (which gives a relatively natural white light).
A 6000Kelvin lamp looks decidely blue. You can even get 8000K or more (which in my view are way too blue).
