Insrtalled headlight assembly [dirver's] but light is focused on painted lines instead of straight aheasd ['08 Impala] no method of adjustemnt. defect by manufacture?

In over 40 years I have not yet seen a headlamp with no facility for adjustment, though sometimes the adjustment is not easy to find.

A car bodyshell would need to be manufactured much more accurately than currently for headlamps not to be adjustable.

I suggest you check with the dealer, the headlamp supplier or a specialist forum...

As a matter of incidental interest, headlamps with the asymmetric beam pattern are aimed on the dipped beam while the British/American beam pattern is aimed on main beam. If electric motors are fitted they should be set to the highest position before aiming the headlights.
Correct headlamp aim is more about the (legal) requirement of not dazzling oncoming traffic than anything else though clearly if they are adjusted so low they are inefficient that would also be against the law.

My SV6 VE 6 speed auto commodore holds 3rd gear longer than other gears peak traffic - any advice greatly accepted. At the front of the queue - the gearbox changes through all gears perfect - thanks

I would try servicing the transmission, that means a new fluid filter and a fluid drain and refill, it may help. You may have a sticking pressure check valve.

Dip beam

The main beam isn't designed to "dip" to oncoming traffic. When you "dip" the beams, it's the high beam that drops out until you click it back to high again. If you have the optional automatic vehicle approach system (NOT just auto headlights) the high beams will dip automatically to oncoming traffic and then go back to high beam again after the oncoming traffic passes.

How do i ajust ford transit headlights 2001 2001 Y transit swb 100TD. i have clear leanses on my headlights and i am driving in france can i ajust the bulb so i dont blind on coming traffic. As the lenses...

There is a conflict with your vehicle and the listing you made for the type of vehicle. But several things to point out. First, if you drive on the opposite side of the road in France versus the United States, the headlight aim would be reversed.

The aim of the headlights can be different in the United States depending on State rules. In general, the curbside light is adjusted higher and the light on the oncoming traffic side is lower. The traffic side is adjusted more towards the center of the vehicle and the curbside is slightly over the curb. You do not want a dark area in the middle of your travel direction.

The vehicle is between 25 and 30 feet from a flat surface The light is adjusted a certain height from the ground. These specs vary and the height of your lights can come into play. Cover the opposite headlight to isolate the beam from the one you are adjusting. A simple towel can cover a lens.

There may be specs in France to cover this.

Dipping headlights to right instead of left

Remove the lens. There should be two to 4 screws for adjusting. .

Adjust headlights on a 2004 Saab 9-3

Check the fuse box under the hood on drivers side, it will be number 17 and a 10 amp. this vehicle has automatic headlight adustment when you crank the car. If the fuse is blown the lights will point down to keep from blinding oncoming traffic.
