Hi there maxers...........



Does anyone out there know how to adjust xenon headlights so that i can legally drive on the continent as i have just learned that the so called beam deflectors dont actually work on this type of headlight. Both the RAC and the AA seem to think that that there may be shutters built into the units but i'm not sure can anyone out there help as i dont really want to pay some obscene amount of money to dealer to adjust them. Plus when i get back from france its likely to be dark so they will need readjusting straight away


look forward to some helpful advice (Please !!!)

There is an adjustment lever within the H/Lamp assy itself that you move for RH / LH drive traffic. You have to remove the whole headlamp assy and then the cover as though you were going to change a bulb.

I'd practice changing the bulb part of this in the daylight and the dry rather than on the side of a foreign motorway in a thunderstorm at three in the morning
