dipped beam height adjustment

3 posts in this topic

Hi All

I bought a focus a few months ago. It is a 2001 model so it has the newer double headlight. It has a button on the dashboard to adjust the height of the dipped beam, but when I use this nothing seems to happen. Does anyone know what could be the problem and how it can be fixed?

many thanks

Hi, a bit late in sending this but..... If you remove the headlight cover on the back of the headlight you will see one of two things 1] right in the centre their is a " plastic butter fly - key type". or 2] an oblong box, the later is the motor that drives the headlight up & down if you have the plastic key then you need to replace with the motor, had this happend to a friend of mine when he bought a focus.

The motors arent cheap either. About £70 each IIRC. Might be better to source a couple from scrap yards if you can, but be very careful they are a sod to get out without breaking the little ball off the end.
