Self Levelling Headlights


Recommended Posts

I had a problem with mine aswell. Mine was down to the sensor on the n/s rear, when my coilovers where installed the sensor was put back the wrong way, it's hard to explain. I have a link to another thread about this on my laptop at home, I'll post it up later.

Snap!

After checking all fuses (the lamp fuses are separate, so the lights coming on OK is not a clue), the first move is to open the bonnet and take off each of the connectors on the headlight assemblies in turn (the ones not obviously going to the lamps), clean them up if they are corroded and put them back on. Often just taking connectors off and putting them back on will clear a bad contact. If the self levelling is working ok, with headlights in auto, switch igntion on when it is dark so you can see the beams - each beam will move up and down before settling in the correct position, and if either doesn't, it is probably the positional sensor in the headlight assembly or the motor that moves the reflector. It is up to you how adventurous you then are in taking the assembly apart to try to fix it, but it could be worth the effort because they are not cheap.
