Red face Espace Xenon lights.

Just an update on what I found.

Removed the lights, not hard to do, did'nt have to take bumper off just the headlight and grill trim above it. Got to the end clips by taking out the indicators that were only held in by a retaining spring at the back of them.
Once I had light units on the bench, removed control cover and checked for water, but they were dry. The bulbs (Philips D2S) looked a bit black in the centre. Bought a set from 'autobulbsdirect' on the net, 69 for the pair including delivery. Built it back up and have not had the fault since. Strange, guess the bulbs were tired.
The job only took an hour and a half all in, albeit I did it twice waiting for the bulbs to arrive ))
Thanks to you all for your help and advice and pointing me in the right direction.
