This is not good on your plastic headlamp mountings!

Top tips: Some Defenders(300Tdi/Td5/Tdci) have Dim dip headlamps this is when the side light is turned on the little lamp next to the headlamp turns on but when the ignition is turned on the dipped beam part of the headlamp also comes on at a lower brightness, this is called dim dip, this is done with a resistor fitted inline to the dipped beam circuit which put approx 6 volts to the headlamp.
The UK government were prosecuted over this and is now made illegal on new vehicles so can be removed from existing vehicles the RDX LED headlamp will use this 6 volts to power up, to remove this function, open bonnet, put hand between brake servo and inner wing, adjacent to the areial mast will be a connector the same as a sidelight/indicator plug, simply disconnect this plug, to remove dim dip!
