Headlights setup

Post by Rfenyvesi » Fri Sep 14, 2018 5:28 pm

Hi!

My headlight's light is too short, only 20-25m.
The headlight level switch is on zero position so i can't set upper the headlights.
Where can i set the lamp's degree to upper?
I searched setup screws on the lamp, but i do not know which is the correct? (I do not want to try them...)
Regards,
Robert

Take the car back to vauxhall saying this. I had this issue last week (also mentioned in several other posts). I rung vauxhall and said I think the headlights are too short / pointing downwards. They said bring the car to them as it is a common problem and they will set it up correctly. They said not to set them up myself with as it may end up failing it's mot due being incorrectly set. It took them 15 mins to do and the headlights are instantly higher.

Just take the car back to garage and they should sort it for you 👍🏾

Your picture disappeared... (but i saw it before :) )
The pictere helped to assign the adjuster screws!
I use the Astra J workshop manual to set the correct angle. It was very useful!
