Sorry Speedysteven I should have said mine are LED's, and they do self level when the car is started.
So even if we change it with the screw it will put them as before?

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.

Just so I've got this clear in my mind - No matter whether the headlights are LED or not, there is still adjustment via the "white screw". Where there is auto adjustment for the LED lights, then these will continue to adjust but within the new physical parameters set via the "white screw" Have I got this right :?:

Had the car now for 2 weeks and last night was first use of headlights. Had to adjust n/s down half turn as i was pissing off anyone in front of me.
Just to confirm clockwise to lower, anti clockwise to raise.

They do not self level.. they cycle the motor to a preset location.... They still need adjusting to the correct height, which should have been done at the factory.. but given the pile of problems arona has, I doubt it was ever carried out !
I'd find a wall, and chalk the beam then adjust one lamp with maybe a coat over the other and drop the beam a little, then try on the road.
Rinse and repeat !
