The dipped headlight can fail on the vehicle named above.
The cause can be a defect in the connection between the light switch and the cable plug.
Friction can wear the coating on the contacts between the light switch and the cable plug which can result in increased resistance. In extreme cases, the high temperatures can melt the connection with the plug and the dipped headlight can fail.
The vehicle manufacturer has already recognized the problem. The 16-pole plug on the combi light switch is being checked in the garages and replaced where necessary.
