Why does the left head light not work unless its on highbeam on 2008 passat

Asked by Mar 28, 2012 at 11:36 AM about the 2008 Volkswagen Passat

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer

I believe the Passat has dual filament bulbs. That is to say that one bulb does both the bright and the dim settings. Its one bulb with two filaments so if either burns out the other will still work.
