If there is no mention of it in the drivers handbook, you may need to get some stick on patches which go on the glass surface of the headlights to overcome the problem. You will find these in most auto accessory shops.

SOURCE: How to adjust UK headlights in jeep grand cherokee

The adjustment screws/nuts should be located either on the top of the headlamp assembly, behind the headlamp assembly, or near the frame rail by the radiator support.

You will have vertical adjustment screws for each independent beam (separate highs and separate lows, but will be same screw if highs and lows are the same bulb). You may also have additional horizontal adjustment screws as well

Park your car on a level ground 30 feet from a wall and measure the height from the ground to the bulb and mark on a wall (do this for highs beams and low beams if the bulbs are separate, if highs and lows are the same bulb, only do it for the lows)

For Low Beams: If the headlights read VOR, then aim the brightest part or cutoff part just below the mark on the wall. If it says VOL or nothing, aim them 2 inches below the mark on the wall.

For High Beams (if separate from low beams): Aim the headlight directly at the line you marked on the wall.

The lenses themselves cannot be adjusted to conform between left hand and right hand drive. The reflector or projector of a left hand drive vehicle is designed to throw more light towards the right side of the vehicle and vice versa for right hand drive vehicles.

Find level ground with a wall. Drive up to the wall and mark where the centre of your headlights are on the wall with a piece of tape. Back up 20 feet and turn your headlights on high beam. Using the adjusting knobs make each light shine directly on the spot. Low beam adjusts itself down and to the left/right (away from oncoming traffic depending on what side of the road you drive on)

Headlights adjustment


Open the hood and look for adjusting screws right behind the headlights. Park the car on a level surface facing a wall or garage door so you can see the height of the beams of light. Adjust them up or down, or left or right and make sure they are both the same height. Drive the car at night to check your adustment, then change it if you need to.

How to Adjust a Mercedes' Headlights

In the U.S. the type, adjustments, and illumination factors of all automobile lighting devices are regulated by the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 108. The headlights must function and be adjusted correctly. Your high beams must disperse their beams straight forward and low beams down and to the right while safely providing illumination without too much or too little glare. It is wise to check the headlight adjustment on your Mercedes at least every year. Doing it yourself will save you time and money. It will also make driving safer for you and others you may meet on the road at night. All it takes is time, some basic tools and a little patience.

Things You'll Need
  • ratchet set
  • 1/4-inch screwdriver, at least 8 inches long
  • flashlight (if needed)
Show More Instructions
    • 1 Open the hood and prop it up.
    • 2 Remove components if necessary to allow access to the left/right and up/down adjustment knobs. They are on top of the rear side of the headlight. The upper knob adjusts the beam to the left and right. The lower knob controls up/down adjustments.
    • 3 Park with the passenger side of the car parallel to a solid fence or wall and about four feet from it. When there is dim light or darkness, turn on the lights and use your screwdriver to adjust the up/down knob on the passenger-side headlight until the light beam is parallel to the ground (you can see the beam of light against the surface of the wall).
    • 4 Turn the car so that it faces the wall approximately one car length away. Adjust the up/down knob on the driver-side headlight until it is at the same level as the passenger side headlight. Then adjust both sides until the small groove on top of the beam cutoff is directly in front of the light.
    • 5 Reinstall any components that you removed. Close the hood.
Tips & Warnings
  • This is method is generic for Mercedes models. Some may differ, as there are many models out there.

Adjusting the headlights on a Mercerdes Benz ML280 (08)


in theory, the headlights are adjusted forward, and centered . so no matter where you drive the illumination should be the same. but there are adjustment screws on all vehicles. so i would say yes, if needed. the lights can be adjusted opposite with the turn of a screw

Can i adjust the headlights on a Merc. B Class myself for driving in europe?


on each headlamp assembly, there will be either one or two plastic nuts that you can turn.

If you only have one nut on each, that will adjust the vertical aim of the headlights.

If you have two nuts on each, one will adjust the vertical and the other will adjust the horizontal.

Park your car on a level ground 30 feet from a wall and measure the height from the ground to the bulb and mark on a wall (do this for highs beams and low beams if the bulbs are separate, if highs and lows are the same bulb, only do it for the lows)

If the headlights read VOR, then aim the brightest part or cutoff part just below the mark on the wall. If it says VOL or nothing, aim them 2 inches below the mark on the wall.

Also, when you said for driving in Europe, is this a European car or are you importing this car? If you are importing, you will have to change your headlight assembly to conform with ECE specs and not DOT (North American) specs
