      The only person that can tell if you have HID (xenon) lamps is you. Do your headlights look like normal headlights or is the light that comes out of there really blue and bright like daylight? These have problems with failing bulbs that cause this so I'd be weary of that diagnosis. I've usually seen the bulbs cause this problems although the technical bulliten that deals with it does say the connector can cause it. Regardless VW probably doesn't just sell the connector most likely you have to replace part of the harness if that truly is the problem. I would live with the flickering until you can swap the bulb from the drivers to the passenger side and see if the flicker stays on the driver's side or not.

      Another thing I've seen cause this is where the headlight isn't completely seated into the car and you can get out and push against the headlight assembly and it stops flickering.

      Anyway, heres how to do it

      Check the ECM under the windshield. ECM is right behind the grill under the window wiper.

      You can have the OBD II (on-board diagnostics) system scanned - for free - at any local auto parts store. You can also purchase a handheld scanner for around $30-$50.00; I purchased mine from Amazon - and it came with the PC DVD for the various codes. Plus it has free on-line upgrades for the software and related codes. Paid for itself the first time I used it nearly three years ago.
