hello there, if you pull off the cover on the r/h/s of the dash - accessible with the door open - you will find a folded fuse chart. the fuses you are looking for ARE in the front fuse box though...

also, have you checked the bulb? is there an alternative bulb being used by the control unit? when some bulbs blow the feed is cut by the front/rear sam until the bulb is fixed.

Thanks for the replies, I have conventional bulbs and if I unplug the five pin plug to the headlight unit, there is no electrical feed coming from the wiring loom. The fuse position chart is missing.
All the other bulbs in the headlight unit are working and the info display on the dash is saying that the left hand dip beam is not working

Which fuse's feed the dip beams (what ampage?)

if the dash says it is not working, why not remove the bulb and inspect it, or fit a new one. as i said it can cut the feed to the bulb. also the fuse will only blow if the bulb blows. the fuse will be at the front of the front fuse control unit.

just checked, fuse no. 62+63 for dipped beams.
