Hi folks,
Just got the car back from a main dealer who has fitted a new headlamp and set it up (joke) :angry: looking about 1 metre in front of the car. Before I take it back and throw a wobbler, is it easier to adjust yourself?

Have something to contribute?

There is an adjuster on the top of the headlamp. I Carnot remember if it is a nut or an alen key.
You should really take it to the dealer so they can put it on a beam tester.(it needs to be the right to pass an MOT)
In the mean time if you park it in front of a wall, when you do the adjustment, You should be able to see the light rise up on the wall as you higher it.
They will flick up on the left hand side. this is normal. Its so that you can see any possible hazards at the side of the road in the pitch black of night.
