manual beam adjustment
« on: April 13, 2013, 08:10:46 PM »
The electric headlight adjuster, next to the instrument light adjuster, seems to not be working. I need to lower the o/s light, on low beam, for the mot. Is there a way to do this by hand?

The adjustment affects both main and dipped so if the main beam is correct and its just the dipped beam then its far more likely some numpty's changed the lamp and not installed it correctly.

You can manually align the headlights using the cream coloured plastic hex bits on each lamp (one for horizontal, one for vertical) but you may also need to get the leveller working for the MoT as I "think" its now tested as well.

nice one mirez. the tester said they would just need adjusting on the ramps for the mot. it only failed on dim number plate lght and an indicator showing white instead of orange. best car ive had, now if i could just stop the small leak on n/s front. done the drivers side.

looks like xenon/Led lights only for levelling motor.

I have replaced my faulty unit for the mot (normal headlights)


p.s. anyone found different?
