My Driver Side, low beam headlight is burnt out, I tried replacing the bulb and nothing, checked fuses appears ok, can anyone tell me what fuse number is the low beam light (since mines in German) or what the problem could be?

Fyi I fixed the problem by replacing the 7.5 fuses with 10 amps, now it works.
So I installed the Phillips blue low beams.
