    Hi everyone,

    While i was fiddling about with my car i took out the passenger side adjuster that moves the beam up and down by mistake! This meant having to take the whole unit out, remove the glass and fit the adjuster back in but what i have noticed is that the passenger side beam of light is a bit lower than the drivers side, i can blatantly tell when looking at the beam pattern when sitting in the car! Does this mean I have to take out the unit and glass again and refit the adjuster? Or is there another way i can align the lights?

    thanks

    I would just take it to a local garage and get them to align it properly - shouldn't cost more than a tenner tops.

    good idea, especially with this freezing weather. Knowing me i'd probably drop the glass from having numb hands

    thanks
