    Looks like they are in the fuse box under the bonnet. That's where the headlight fuses are I think.

    I am not sure without looking in the manual, I found a pic of the fusebox mate. Hopefully somebody can point out the exact relay which controls the main beam

    In the meantime, does the stalk still make the noise when pressed and does the blue light come on the dash?

    its the dipped beam i think he means, as he said high beam is ok, you need to get a test light mate and actualy check the fuses as ivd found not all cars are as per diagram

    Yes, I think you're right. Main beam to me has always meant the same as high beam.
