Just noticed one of my front dlr lights is out.

Car is only 2 months old.

Is there an easy fix or should I take back to dealer

The headlight units are sealed and drl's can't be swapped out, so it guess it will be a trip back to the dealer for a whole new headlight unit under warranty of course.

Im surprised that these don't fail more often, being on all the time. Maybe they should just be on in the daytime.

The life of a LED light is suppose to last around 50 years and that's being on 24/7.

 

The flickering issue has been happening on the focus, it could be link, take it back to your dealer don't mess with it they might try to worm their way out
