  1. Hello Guys. This is just a quick update to let you know how I got on. The adjusting screw is mounted towards the bottom of the light units between the two lenses. You have to turn it anti-clockwise to raise the headlight beam and it works in tiny increments so be prepared for your arms to ache when you have finished. It is a bit awkward to get to the screws as on one side the battery is in the way (there is just enough room to work) and on the other side the air filter housing is in the way (I removed this to make life easier). The end result is that now my headlights are back to where they should be. I went out for a drive in the dark and no one flashed me so they don't seem to be dazzling oncoming traffic and I can see where I am going. Thanks to Steve for the picture. Steve.
  2. Thanks Steve. After looking at the picture in your link I think I have located the adjusting screw. In your picture it is shown at the top of the headlight but as mine are HIDs it seems to be at the bottom of the unit. I will give it a go at the weekend when I have a bit more time and I can trial what I am doing in the dark. I will keep you posted as to how I get on. Once again, thanks for your help. Steve.
  3. Thanks Pete, hopefully someone will be able to help us out.
  4. Hello guys. I recently had to have the automatic headlight levelling sensor bracket thingy welded up as it had broken. Since it was done I am pretty sure my headlight beams are now pointing down more than they used to. Is there any manual adjustment on the headlights to raise the light beam or do I have to get the bracket thingy re-welded in a different position? Thanks. Steve.
  5. Air filter

    Hello Norman. I assume your air filter is positioned just behind the headlight. If so, you are probably not doing anything wrong, it can just be a real pain to get the big round clip located properly. I can remember I changed my filter once and I took me almost half an hour to get the clip seated right. Thankfully it is not like that every time, sometimes I get lucky and it seats properly first time. Just have another go, if you start getting frustrated walk away and go back in 10 minutes, you will succeed in the end. Steve

  9. Hi Simon. Nice idea to give us the WTF fixes, they never seem to be in any of the How To Guides that I find. As far as your seized calliper bolt goes this is what I did. I put the socket on the bolt and chose the longest ratchet I had that would fit in the space that I had. I then put a jack under the ratchet and VERY SLOWLY and in tiny increments wound the jack up to provide the leverage. I had struggled for a few days to get the bolt undone but with this trick I had it done in about two minutes. I hope this helps. Happy New Year. Steve.
  10. Hello Guys. I have the DHP package on my 2000 LS and found the 245 tyres ridiculously expensive so I went down to 235/50/17. I have had about 4 sets of Falken tyres on the car since I have owned it and I can't really fault them. The Pirelli tyres that were on the car when I bought it were only half worn but they were causing the car to tramline all over the place. Since I have changed to the Falkens I can run the tyres right down to the limit and still feel confident that the car will go where I want it to. One thing to consider about the profile of the tyres with the DHP package is that if the front springs are starting to get a bit tired then there isn't much clearance between the tyres and the inner wheel arch on full lock so you might want to reduce the profile to give yourself a bit of wiggle room. I didn't notice any difference in ride comfort by reducing the width of the tyres and no noticeable reduction in grip either. I hope this helps. Steve.
  11. A switchable valve in the exhaust would be nice. It is nowhere near as loud in the car, the microphone was mounted just above the rear number plate. Apart from the lack of silencers the car is standard with 230,000 miles on the clock.
  12. Hello Guys. I know this isn't to everyone's taste but it makes me smile.

    I made it to 222222 last October on my way to work. I thought I would take a picture of all my ducks in a row.

  15. Hello Denis. I have just noticed you have a 1995 LS, the diagram above is for a 1998-2000 LS so I am not sure if yours will be the same. Steve.
