  1. European Driving

    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. Phill
  2. Thanks for the reply. I don't have the kuga yet... But the dealer say there's nothing in the book and there is no switch on the headlamp according to ford tech guys. Thanks
  3. Dear all Can anyone answer this question. We've got a new titanium x kuga on order and it comes with xenon lights. Now the French are quite keen in obtaining our money with on the spot fines and we will be going over twice this year. I called Mr Ford and asked the question on how to change the left dip to right and thee answers were many and varied. They were.... Don't bother. Have the lights changed at Dover by one of our technicians. Print out from the ETIS site a headlamp data form mark the headlamp and either tape it up or marker pen the selected area to block out the dip. Don't use beam benders as they can cause the light to overheat and it won't be covered by warranty. So is there anyone one who actually knows the easiest way to alter them or are the beams flat and I don't need to bother at all. Even the tech guys at Ford are unsure. So a car that cost 30k can't be driven abroad without the fear of the local Feds "taxing" me. Help!!!!!!

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

    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.
