Hi there,

The only real way to tell if it is the bulb that has gone is to swap it to the other headlight.

Now comes the bad bit, the bulbs are expensive. If you was to buy one from Renault it would cost you near 100.

When one of my bulbs went (it was giving off a pink light and the output was way reduced) i got two 6000K bulbs from for 60. You can also by a Philips OEM (same as what is in your car now) bulb for 70, but I bought the two for 60 as you dont know when the other one is going to give up the ghost.

I then got Renault to fit them at a price of 35. But that may of been my dealer being kind or unkind depending on how you look at it. By far the easiest way to fit Xenon bulbs yourself is to take the front bumper off and get the lights out that way. There is a thread on here somewhere on how to do that.

Also may be worth looking
