Afternoon chaps.
Just joined the site, and I have a question for the floor that Mr Ford cannot answer.

If I'm covering old ground, bear with me.

I've got a Kuga Titanium x on order which is fitted with xenon lights.

We intend to do lots of travelling around Europe and in fact have such a jaunt booked for July.

I cannot find out from anyone what provisions the lights have to be used for the left dip to right dip.

ford have mentioned a few things to do..
Change the light units at Dover by their technician and be billed for lots of money.
Download a schematic from the ETIS site and colour in or tape the relevant area. What on 30k vehicle!!
And finally one said there is no requirement to do anything unless it's a preeminent export.

So what the answer. Postcards only please to this site.

Maybe the xenon beam is a flat one? I have asked Mr Ford that should. I be stopped and fined many gazillion euros for not changing them over, would they pay the bill. Anyway after he stopped laughing, they have no idea what to do on a product they build.

Is there anyone who can give a definitive answer.

Phill in Wakefield.

Thanks.
Thought there would have been more replies, especially from Ford technicians.
There must be other Kuga owners who go abroad, what they do?

So my question has been answered by the nice people at the AA. They called Ford and were informed that the xenon lights have a flat been and no adjustment is required for driving in Europe on a non permanent basis.

I had cancelled my order bit resigned up and got another £500 off. So well happy.
