I bought a 2001 WS6 6 speed with 60k miles.

The inner headlights do not come on, just the outer headlights, and I wonder if the inner headlights are the low beams?

Wanting to buy 2 new ones to see if that's the problem and want to make sure I buy the correct ones.

They do look like they have moisture in them.

The dimmer switch doesn't feel the smoothest either, but it clicks and lets the fog lights come on off as I click it, with the outer headlights staying on the whole time.

Thanks

I'm at work right now; the car is home covered up.

Looking at the front of the car with the headlights up, you got 2 square headlights on each side.

The ones on the outside of each side work, but the ones inside each side don't work.

The two headlights closest to the center of the hood aren't working.

Thanks

That would be your high and low beams.

The outside is low, and the inside is high, and for both to be out doesn't seem right with a car with only 60K.

Have you checked the level on the steering column?

Thank you,

I do notice quite a bit of moisture inside the inner headlights tho

We mean, did you pull the high and low beam switch to see if the headlights turn on.

Thank you,

Ohh ok.

Yes, I did.

It has been a long time since I've been in a vehicle old enough to have a switch like that, but it seems somewhat rough to me, but it does click, and no, the inner headlights do not come on, but the outer lights stay on, and the fog lights come on and off as I use the switch.

Thanks alot.

I'm sure I will be asking for help alot on here as the car needs a lot of little things done to it.

Like it needs headlight motor gears, it sounds like all speakers are blown but one, and it needs a new clutch.

It runs and pulls hard, but if I try to launch it even a little, it smokes the clutch.
