Exclamation Strange Headlight Issue (2013 S60)

Hey all -

New to this forum, so thanks in advance for your patience. I love this car, but ... I can't figure this one out:

1. Passenger low beam fails. High beams fine.
2. I tap it with my fist and it pops back on.
3. Fails again a few hours later.
4. I remove the assembly, look for loose wiring, reinstall.
5. Works fine, but a week later the driver low beam fails. Passenger low beam and high beam works fine.
6. The old bang on it with your hand trick does not work.

No fuse for the headlights, it seems ... at least not listed in the fuse diagram. Bad relay???? Any thoughts?

Halogen or hid lamps? Did you swap out the bulb or inspect the contacts? The relay would likely be in the CEM but not sure for your model. Sounds like a connection issue....
