Jaguar XF 2014, Headlamp issue


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Recently, I noticed the passenger side headlamp stopped working (both low / high beam, but turn signal light is working). I took it to nearly auto repair shop - where they changed the Xenon bulb (D3S Hid) and it didn't work. They asked to take to some other shop to fix it as they don't know whats going on. I checked over phone with another British Auto repair shop where they quoted 850$+tax - saying some controller issue - which would cost 450$ for the parts and remaining for the labor - as they need to remove the front bumper. (I think the first shop didn't remove the bumpers)

I would like to know
1. Whether this is something I can do it myself? (Referring to this forum and like this[1],[2])
2. What are the parts I need to buy? I couldn't find proper description of headlamp parts.
3. Is it a good idea to remove both the headlights and exchange the parts to compare which is the faulty?

Thanks in advance for your tips/help. I'm a noobie with no experience on repairing cars. (except for engine/cabin air filter change! :P)

Assume you checked the fuses, worth checking if you have not. Controllers are expensive, would be surprised for the age if it has gone already. Dont know much about they are wired sorry.
