Seicento sporting lights

Hi. My mum had her lights changed when she moved to France 15years ago. This year it failed its mot as the levelling motors were not fitted. I can't seem to find any anywhere. Any help would be much appreciated.

If it doesn't have levering motor system then the level is set manually.

Did it fail control technic on beam too high or too low?

Has the car had a bump on the front?

Re: Seicento sporting lights

The lamps are now getting expensive.. but the motors are probably a common..'bolt.on' part

Maybe common with punto..?

Re: Seicento sporting lights

I'm wondering how it passed for 14 years without levelling motors?

Re: Seicento sporting lights

The headlamps fitted should have levelling motors but the bloke who fitted them fixed them in place. I've no idea what happened to the original motors. What about a stilo motor? . Do you think they could use them.?

Re: Seicento sporting lights

It is likely the basic setting of aim is part of motor
So yes looks like you need replacement head lights with motors

EBay.fr?

Re: Seicento sporting lights

Ah I think there is a problem here.
Just looked at fiatdalys on line catalogue.
Appears that the adjustable headlights were hydraulically adjusted , electrically adjusted or just manual adjust.


If you can find a headlamp with manual adjuster . Then that will work just needs fitting and aiming.
