2006 Volkswagon Beetle, drivers side headlight, high beam not working


Instructions
    • Turn the headlight switch on and inspect the headlights. Make sure to check both low- and high-beam lights, and then note the position of the bulb in the headlight assembly. Low-beams are in the top cavity of the assembly and high-beams are in the lower cavity.
    • 2Turn off the headlight switch and then remove the keys from the ignition.
    • 3
    • Open the hood and locate the seam to the headlight assembly and the side fender. Locate the headlight assembly release lever and push in on it slightly to unlock it and then pull it all the way up until it stops.
    • 4Place a blanket or pillow on the ground in front of the headlight assembly. Push the assembly outward from behind with one hand while being ready to catch the assembly with the other. The New Beetles use an adhesive sealant to protect the back of the headlights from exposure to moisture, so you'll have to give the assembly a push from behind.
    • 5Pull the wire harness plugs off from both the high- and low-beam blades of the respective bulbs.
    • 6Place the assembly on the blanket or pillow. Release the wire clip to the faulty headlight and then remove the headlight bulb.
    • 7Open the package of the new H1 bulb replacement without touching the glass portion of the bulb with your bare skin. Oils in human skin will damage the bulb. Handle it only by the metal base of the bulb insert.
    • 8Insert the new bulb in the appropriate headlight-assembly cavity and reattach the bulb retaining clip to lock the bulb in place.
    • 9Lift the assembly up and plug the wire harness plugs back into the respective blades of the bulbs.
    • 10Push the headlight assembly into its cavity, but before locking it in place, check the lights by turning on the headlight switch.

How to set auto headlights


Ford Requires a special tool to adjust headlights, you can buy from ford or Mac or snap-on tools. Car must be level and you need it to be slightly dark outside so you can see what your doing. Adjust driver head light on low beam, as you are turning adjustment screw turn the screw for raising the head light and raise the head light up or down till it is 30 feet in front of you. you can take steps and measure it this way which would be 10 steps or ten yards on a normal person that is 5.8ins tall. then adjust the side adjuster so that when looking at the head light spot on the ground it is pointing to the passenger car side about one foot away from straight on. Meaning if you were going down the highway that the light would point down and slightly to the right not on the center road painted lines. Next adjust the passenger side to where it is the same height as the driver side, then hit your high beams. it should be aimed so that the lights do not shine into on com-ming drivers eyes. If you have a garage or a building that you can get thirty feet away and the car is level it will make it easier for you to see what your adjusting. Afterwords you may have to make a minor adjustment to both lights. I like to set them so that the passenger is slightly higher and a little to the right so you can see going down the road at night an avoid or see a deer or person to the right side of the road. Some states requires that a certified light mechanic to do this so be sure you are not voilating any laws when doing this. Thanks for using fix-ya and rate if this was helpful.

AUDI A4 2003 1.9TDI HOW TO ADJUST THE HEADLIGHT


There are two adjustment points (screws). For example left headlight: you will see one point near the end of left wing, at bottom side through a wing hole. This is for vertical plane headlight beam adjustment (up-down). Another one point is against water radiator side. This is for horizontal plane headlight beam adjustment (left-right).

How to replace blub in headlight


The entire headlight comes out from the exterior of the car. When you open your hood, there is a lever that you need to slide up. The light will then pop out and you will be able to replace the bulb and then pop the light back in. You will have to push hard inorder to get the lever to go back down. We had better luck with two of us doing it... one pushing... the other working the lever.

Headlight problem


first off if you paid to have it replaced then i would take it back to them for the adjustment if not there will be some sort of adjustment screws on the whole lamp assembly not sure exactly where on a focus but if you are persistant you will find them. then find a spot to park car close to a wall so you can see the lights projected on the wall and adjust to the driver side level
