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

I have 67 plate bmw with xenon lights what do I have to do for driving in europe

Hi, Most of europe drive on right hand side excluding U/K. France wants your headlight to be yellow, as a visitor they do not normally bother about this rule to much. However should you want to yellow you headlights, most car spare shops sell a small spray that you can use, This is accepted all over Europe. For U/K at spares shop they sell a kit that you stick onto your headlights which moves main beam to left hand driving it sticks on front outside of headlights. Please leave me feed back Malcolm Campbell, Thanks.

Can the headlights on 2006 range rover be adjusted for europe

If your car is right hand drive and you're taking it to another location that is right hand drive, then it will be fine the way it is.
However, if your car is right hand drive and you take it to another location that is left hand drive, then you cannot use those headlights. The reflector and projector assembly of a right hand drive car is designed to throw more light towards the passenger side of the vehicle (where your road signs would be)

02/03 C220 headlights electronic adjustment

rtcasper Clarification Request; It is the electrical adjustment (Thumb wheel Adj on facia panel) that is not functioning not the mechanical adjustment on the head lights (Plastic cross head screw adjust L/R and U/D). The thumb wheel is usually a potentiometre adjusting a control voltage applied to the head light motor. On the Merc I can't see the motor and wonder if vertical head light adjustment is vacumme operated, where the vacumme pump is located or where i can get access to the wire loom to trace it though as I don't see how to get behind the facia. ANy suggestions as to how to get to and proove which bits are working? At the moment the headlights are adjusted to point correctly by the mechanical adjustment but this does not enable me to lower the lamps easily when I put a load in the boot.
