Thank you for your help to lower what way does the screw need to go right or left to lower them?alandl said:There is in the top of each headlight unit a white screw head that you can turn to lower or higher the beam.
The screw is shown below in the red circle in picture 1 and a close up in picture 2 - it needs to Philips screwdriver to turn.
Did any of those cars have LED headlights?stottycabanas said:This seems crazy! I'm pretty sure every car I've owned over the last 30 years or so has had the ability to adjust the headlamp level from inside the car.
I agree with Speedysteven, the default setting for the dipped beam level does seem to be higher than it should be.
Ah - good point, Nigel. No they didn't.nigel58 said:Did any of those cars have LED headlights?
As far as I know only halogen headlights have manual height adjustment within the car.
I lowered mine just hope there at a legal height for UK roads :?alandl said:Just done some testing in a garage.
So about 50 meters from a wall with the headlights on, I turned the screw and set the right hand headlight to its highest level.
I marked the wall where the beam faded from light to dark horizontatly and switched the engine off. When I switched the engine on the lights lowered then raised themselevs up to the mark on the wall.
I also turned the screw fully the other way to its lowest point and I marked the wall. I then switched off and on again and the beam lower and raised up to the new lower mark.
So it seams that the white screw in the top of the LED unit sets the height of the beam.
