Is200 - Mot Failed Due To Headlights Pointing Wrong Way

Recommended Posts

Hi - does anyone know if the headlights can be adjusted to point to the left intead of to the right which mine do and has just failed MOT due to this. It ws imported from Germany, is right hand drive and everything else appears standard. Do I have to buy two new headlight units and if so any idea how much please.

thanks

John :duh:

Sorry fella, but methinks you'll have to dig deep for RHD lamps. Don't think you can alter the Euro kit.

You should be able to get the stickers from Halfords or similar plases that will flatten the beam. It should pass the MOT with these, ask the tester to see and he may help you stick them in the right place. Even though they are fro RHD to convert to LHD you can turn them round to do the job.

thought so - ironic thing is that I off to France in it in 2 week and need to replace the lights for mot then put on deflectors to drive on rights etc..

Do they come cheaper if I upgraded to loc gold etc?

hay-ho

:crybaby:

Mine failed last week as well, but due to the headlight aim, rather than direction.

£12.50 + VAT just to adjust it!

Surely its like a 5 minute job???

Oh well.
