Hi All,
My 2016 Ocean with H7 headlights has a fault with the right daylight running light. I had the bulb replaced, and it was OK for a week or so, but it's off again!
I haven't changed it again, so I can't yet confirm if it's the bulb again, but as it was only intermittent at the beginning, I'm starting to think it's a bad wire or connector.
Does anyone have a diagram of how the cables are run from the headlights into the cab, and where any connector are?
TIA
Ian

I've been having similar, I think it is the holder. I've cleaned it up and it has been ok, but the bulb actually went today!
Yes I've got a beach, but I have the H7 light upgrade.

I can't even get to bulb holder! I guess I need to remove the complete headlight unit?

No, the holder is just about accessible though better if you take off the air filter box.
Have you checked the manual?
Good description here
The holder is behind the cover at the rear of the headlight. Find it, towards the bottom, then twist to unlock.

Many thanks for that @Stoneybroke
It was just the holder and that link you posted helped a lot.
My manual is in German and confused me more than it helped me! o_O
