    Hi guys,

    Noticed lately that when I start my car for the first 1-2 minutes the headlights go dim and then back to full brightness again. Its quite hard to see sometimes but it is accompanied with a gentle clicking noise from the dash?


    Its a 2006 2.0tdi cabriolet S-line



    Cheers, James

    Could be the headlight control unit under the steering column, need to go on VCDS first to check voltage to see if it is at fault.
