166 Headlights - dull...

I seem to have a small problem with one of the headlamps to my 2001 166
The left side lamp seems to have gone dull, not so much power as the right side lamp....can this be the case ?
When switching on the headlights there is the normal 'wake up flash', then the levelling and then here you see the difference in brightness
You really notice it when driving on the dark, its awful
Is there a remedy ?
Or is it off to the AR dealer....?
Thanks Neil

Re: 166 Headlights - dull...

I have no answer for you only solidarity!!! My 166 has recently developed the exact same issue?? !! Any clues from others would be very welcome..
As we drive on the left hand side I assumed it was just the additional build up of grit and dirt tat would come on the ditch/road side and intended investigating cleaning out the lenses..... however your moniker suggests driving on the right and so the left isn't as close to the dirt as mine ?
