Place the car on level ground approx 3metres away from a blank wall or similar. Measure the distance from the ground to centre of headlight and mark this height on the wall. Turn on dipped beam and you should see a pattern that has a straight vertical line that slopes up at about 45 degrees. Adjust the headlights so the staight portion of line is approx 10mm below the line marked on the wall. That is close enough to be legal. Then get them checked at local garage.

I am doing a head gasket setting alignment


you will find two bright links on the chain that correspond to the dots on the cam shaft and the key ways on both cams should line up with the top of the head facing back towards the firewall IE parallel with the top surface of the head ( where the tappet cover bolts on), with the crank on TDC (top dead center)

Gitting gti lights


The wiring is different, if your Golf had headlights with H4 bulbs then changing to high beam turns dip off. The GTi has separate dip and high lights, on high beam dip stays on (all 4 bulbs on).

u need an air compressor ( prefferably) an air gun or really good ratchet, a VERY long extension for ur ratchet/ air gun and a torx bit. Cant remember which size bit it is by heart.

Need an air gun to remove the wheel lug nuts, and then the center bolt from the axle. (think its 32mm)

Then with ur torx bit, remove the 6 bolts around the axle, they are about 4 inches from the tranny.

The extension for ur ratchet needs to be about 30 inches long.
Good luck.
