Sounds like the bulb is on it's way out, you might have a bulb that the filament hasn't quite parted thus bounces on and off when going down the road, had this on a dash light in a old golf it lasted months until it finally blew...

Xenon bulbs don't have a filament they are filled with gas and Wilma do you know how much they are!!!!

A replacement bulb is probably £60-£80 each!!!

Didn't think the 2007 version came with HID xenons, just thought they came with normal H7 xenons which are about £15.00Edited by: Pondpaul

I had a similar thing happen to my Volvo XC70. When the dealer checked it out it turned out to be a broken engine mount. It seemed both the engine and the Xenon light unit shared the same mounting bracket. Took almost 3 full days to fix. Fortunately it was fixed under warranty.

Those are replacement bulbs to fit standard lights not Xenon bulbs to fit the Antara. As Paul pointed out the OP probably only has standard bulbs anyway.
