    Individual headlight adjustment.

    Hoping someone can help as I couldn't find the answer using the search function ...
    Is there any way to adjust each headlight individually ?  My left light is much lower than the right. I know I can electronically adjust both and I can see they can both be adjusted horizontally but I can find no way to adjust only 1 light vertically. Any solutions ?  Thanks !

    What happens if you switch the H4 bulbs, left to right and VV?
    Are thy the same brand?

    They are the same brand ... but I see where you are coming from. Will reverse them and see if it is a globe issue. Thanks.

    The most liklely cause is that one of the bulbs has not been seated correctly in it's housing,
    especially as they are a litttle bit awkward to access.

    You might be able to tell this, and see which one needs re-seating
    by looking in through the front of the headlamp lense  :028:

    Cheers  :821:

    Thank you Coconut. Will check to see if they are seated correctly as well. I believe thanks are also in order for your contribution to the ignition wiring recall.

    Normally, the right headlight is higher than the left, so as not to dazzle vehicles traveling in the opposite direction and, at the same time, the right side gives more light to the right side of the road.

    But if you want to adjust manually, you can do it.

    If not a problem than what Coconut just said.

    In the UK the thing is surely the opposite.

    You can see the horizontal and vertical adjustments.

    There are manual adjustments for horizontal and vertical.

    I put both photos and you will see it better than if I explained it to you. Hahaha.
