GT Xenon Headlamp (nearside)

Hello all,

The main beam has failed on my nearside (passenger side) Xenon Headlamp.
I'm told that water ingress is the issue but I'm also aware that the solution is to replace the transformer, rather than the whole assembly.
The gauling fact about the failure is that this is the second time that the main beam has failed and it was the main dealer who did not seal the assembly correctly and thus allowed water to contaminate the electronics.
I pointed this out to them originally but the matter was waived away with a few words.
Plumber's silicone sealant at the pricely sum of 3.95 would have prevented this issue from ever happening!
Does anyone have experience of this issue or can offer a solution or perhaps have spares available to cure the issue?
The motor is one year out of warranty and thus no luck there.

Thanx Serb
