Hello,

I've got a 2005 Focus with xenon headlights. The lights seem to shine too close to the car. This isn't noticeable in a 30 area, but the second I'm on a 40 or National road I find the area of illumination too small and find it difficult to keep up to speed and still feel safe.

I can't find anything anywhere about adjusting them. Is this something that a garage would be able to do?

Cheers,

Brian.

On headlights there's normally a couple of adjuster screws on the top, but to be honest, its a 'mare of a job. You can get them aligned for next to nothing at any garage that has the alignment checking equipment (MOT testing stations are a good place to start).

Xenon headlights aren't adjustable manually , they're controlled electronically by 2 sensors on the suspension.
