I have a Volvo XC90, left hand drive. Is it possible to change the dipped headlights from right to left for use in the UK. Or do I need a new headlight set?

Can the headlights be adjusted in 2013 Camry


Yes they should be adjustable because people change tyre profiles front to rear and this alters the drive angle.The adjustment screws are in the headlamp housing behind lamps accessed from the hood/ bonnet side.you do need to do this properly so they align together at the legal height for full beam.there is plenty of online information on the correct height for full beam...once you have made sure all Your tyres are at the right pressure....park on level ground ...at least 3 meters from front of a wall ....and at right angles to the wall....measure the height to the centre of headlight to ground .......mark the right light horizontal line for correct height on the wall and make sure you put lights on full beam....they should shine slightly below (say an inch )to the marked the measurement of height of lamp on the vehicle....adjust until the right hand light horizon is an inch below...now mark vertical line to cross centre of reflected light....this will give you a register point to mark where the left light should fall ...this will be exact distance apart as on vehicle and again adjust left until it falls below 1inch of the measured height line of lamp on car......mark distance from right to left light and mark the same height in chalk....then adjust left light to pinpoint marked chalk cross.adjust the beams by turning the spring loaded screws behind the lights.once you are happy check dipped positions....on right hand drive the lights should dip below and left.left hand drive dip below and right.you probably didn't need so much info but ...hey it's free and it saves any misunderstanding.hope this is of help...please vote.thankyou.

Headlamp inclination too high up


There are two adjusting screws on the back of each headlight, as a rough check for the alignment, on flat ground, drive the vehicle right up to a wall, mark the centre of the light on the wall, reverse the car straight back about ten feet. Switch on main beam and the beam should shine straight at the mark you made on the wall. Dip the lights the beam should drop and go left by about two inches (UK). Left hand drive the beam should go to the right and down (US).

Adjusting bi-xenon headlights on Volvo S40


This guys don't know what they are talking about. If you have self leveling head lights and they are way out of alignment, yes there is adjustment screws but those mess with a different light bulb (daytime running light) instead of the main bulb alignment.

So what is a man to do? go to the dealer and have them adjust them for you. Believe it or not everytime you get an aliment done you have to recalibrate your headlights because they change the way the vehicle sits. Do it enough times and the headlight will go out of wack (because of the self leveling function)


In other words, they headlights are adjusted by means of a Computer. You could do it your self but you have to buy the DICE VIDA adjustment tool and the proper software from Volvo. Not cheap, just go to the dealership.

I am driving to spain soon, can I adjust the main beam dipping direction from left to right hand dipping without replacing the headlight unit?.


Unfortunately you cannot. The beam pattern itself is different. On left hand drive cars, the actual beam is designed to throw the least amount of light into oncoming cars and will look something like this.
_________
________/


you can't change the pattern as the housing unit itself is what depicts the pattern projected.

How do you replace a front parking light on a volvo 2003xc90?


Hi! I have already changed one.
1. Open engine hood
2. take the headlight unit out (pull out two hooks)
3. you have to disconnect the unit's electric wire (use a screwdriver)
3. change the bulb - it's place lower size of headlight unit (If I remember right, it is a W5W bulb)
4. reassemble :-)
