Headlight adjustment

Post by Markkelsall » Fri Jan 12, 2018 3:11 pm

With the recent fog we have had I have noticed that the left headlamp (as you sit in the car) is pointing over to the right (into oncoming cars) on my Astra J you could adjust the beam with an Allen Key up and down and left to right is there a way of doing this on the K as have had a bloke look at the units and can't see any adjustment? any help would be appreciated

Mine are completely different to the pic attached but now have found two knurled plastic adjusters right at the bottom so will sort them out this evening, many thanks for the prompt reposting of the photo, cheers Mark

I had a different problem, I noticed bringing my wife back from a evening hospital appointment on a B road, discovered the dip beam was not all it could be when I hit a pothole bringing a couple of warning lights up (cleared when I cycled the ignition) and knocked the tracking out. I've fitted Osram Nightbreakers now, but I've noticed Vauxhall, from the Vectra onwards, tend to set them a little too low.
Read this, didn't have the blue ones shown, but did have twin black ones as Markkel said. Adjusted mine up 2 levels, still under my wife's number plate @ 1 1/2 car lengths, will see how I get on now :)
