Headlights. Traffic L/R setting plz help

Recommended Posts

 

It adjusts your headlights according to whether you are driving on the left hand side of the road or the right.

Have you not looked in the owners book?

The setting is for which side of the car you drive on and also for which side of the road. UK is right hand drive and EU continent is left hand drive.

It should be on left hand as we drive on the left.

It's left hand traffic, not about where the steering wheel is.

Thanks Alex

I will change it to "Left"

its a little bit ambiguous that one, I mean, Traffic R/L could be taken for which side is the oncoming traffic on, to your left, or to your right, in which case it would be on the "Right" (of you) but I suspect Alex is right, its what side do you drive on

So does that change your actual pattern then? or just direct it a bit to the left or right of centre?

When you set it to left traffic from right, it dips the drivers side headlight slightly and pushes the passengers side up and left a bit.

Easiest thing is to park in front of a wall and fiddle, then it becomes more obvious.

Have you played with it in your car ?

Yep. :)

Worth doing for your own peace of mind as I was confused when I first got the car.

I don't think it is in the owners manual, hence peoples confusion.  Just checked the latest Ford "online" version and couldn't find any mention of it.  FORD UK =  :wallbash:
