Is it possible to change the headlight dipping from dipping to the left as at present for driving on the left of the road, to dipping to the right for driving on the right of the road as I am moving countries and taking my Wrangler with me? Do I need to buy fresh lights or is an adjustment of the present ones all that is necessary?

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.
It's not a fuse problem....
The car has at least 4 fuses for headlights. one for each Dip left + right hand side (10A mp approx) and 2 more Main left + right. Your front fog and sidelights are also seperate fuses. A doggy connection or relay is a high suspect instead.
Check up dipped beam headlights fuse inside fuse box. For Audi A4 the fuse box is located on the left side of dashboard behind a plastic cover (for left hand steering wheel vehicle). On inner face of the plastic cover you will find the fuse diagram. If the dipped beam headlights fuse is OK, check up dipped beam headlights bulbs.
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.
