Hi,

My 2012 Ceed just developed the known flickering DRL lights issue (2012-2018 model) on the passenger side. The car just hit 100,000 miles (100,070), and is thus out of warranty. I'd read there was a software update to fix the issue, but only for 2013 and later Ceeds, that the only fix is to replace the entire headlamp unit. Is this correct?

I've been quoted £450 for the one unit (bit expensive just to correct a flickering bulb), so just wondering are there any other methods of correcting this issue without needing to buy and replace the whole unit? I've also read the same flickering issue can occur again, and the unit may need replaced a few years down the road. Is there a more permanent fix for this issue?

Thanks.

Hi Lee

Please be assured we still absorb the costs of the flickering DRL issue even if the cee'd is out of warranty. There would be nothing for you to pay. The issue just needs presenting to a dealer to confirm it's the known defect and we'll do the rest. The dealer may ask you to underwrite the diagnostic charge but we'd cover this if it's found to be the known defect. If the dealer's communication suggests otherwise, please PM us with the dealer name, reg and confirming if you're the registered keeper so we can follow up.
