Hi, check the relays underneath the glovebox on he passenger side are all the way in, theses can come loose and cause the dipped beam to cut in and out. Or grab the black multi plug on the uch unit and move it to see if the fault occurs, if so a new uch is required
Just changed my Front Headlight bulbs on a 2012 Clio RS Raider / Ange & Demon. Brought the bulbs from HIDS Direct in the UK. All done without removing anything but 2 nuts holding the rubber airflow pipe on next to the battery and twisting the hose to enable me to put my hand between the battery and the front light unit. The other side was even easier ! It is a tight squeeze to get your hand in there. Remove the rubber cap protecting the bulbs, pull the supply plug off the back of the bulb, then unclip the U clip holding the bulb in place and safely remove the bulb. You may need a torch to see where your going when putting the bulb back in and you might end up with some cuts on your hand from the tight squeeze. BUT its a 10 minute job Vs a hour job removing the bumber alone and light fitting :)
If both lights do not work it is unlikely to be a fuse or even the bulbs, although that cannot be completely discounted. The more probable cause would be the headlight relay which has gone faulty or even the headlight switch which is not selecting the low beams. Fuses are easiest to check, and there is probably one for each light. Bulbs are a bit trickier and really need a continuity tester to check, or try other bulbs. (Remember not to touch the glass part of the bulb). The relay can only be checkec by replacement and the switch can be checked by seeing if there is power at the low beam terminals when the switch is selected that way.
Are u sure that the bulbs are OK? I had no dipped lights on mine, & thought it must be a fuse or another electrical fault. It turned out, both bulbs had gone. I think this often happens when one side goes, the other soon follows.
