Question Seeking passenger side headlight mount illustration

My passenger side headlight seems to be aimed too high. Anyone have a link to an illustration showing how to manually adjust the angle of the light beam? The passenger side headlight mount is difficult to access.

Re: Seeking passenger side headlight mount illustration

If you look just behind the head light from above (lift bonnet and stand in front of headlight, lean over and look down), there is a silver 6mm hex/allen socket in what looks like a plastic cone. Tip, if you use a 6mm bit in an extension, tape the join between bit and extension! The socket is in a slight angle back toward the headlight assembly and tends to grab the bit and when you pull it out it falls in half and the peices drop into unreachable places...

And heres a pic. I am standing in front of the middle of the vehicle, camera is sitting above the bonnet latch and looking to my left (passenger side of a US vehicle). Just below the tip of my finger is the 6mm hex socket.



Actually this might be easier, I put an alan key into the socket. Thisnis between the aircleaner and the front of the vehicle.

No probs

For those with export vehicles you will notice in that last pic about a third of the way up the shaft of the allan key and then to the right slightly is a second allen socket. This is for the export model left/right adjustments. The reason US models dont have them is your beam pattern is flat. Ours kicks up to the passenger side to light up more if the side of the road (euro pattern). We need left to right adjustment to make sure the kick up is further to the passenger side than straight ahead so as not to blind oncoming traffic. Personally I dont like it as when you overtake another vehicle it lights up the insides!!
