Wink Headlights adjustment Panda Cross

Hi!

Can anyone help me? I have a brand new Panda Cross, and although the headlights can be lowered or raised from inside the car, even at the highest setting it is still too low for me. How do I (manually) adjust it to be even higher, or is this something the dealer workshop should rather do? I am quite good at DIY, but if it is too finicky I'd rather not. It is also soo tiny around this engine, can't get a hand in there!

Thanks for any advice!

Don't adjust headlamp beam yourself, it needs garage equipment to do it properly. In the UK you could fail the MOT if not done correctly, don't know where you are based but similar laws/tests could cause problems.

It's perfectly possible to do on your own in a DIY state, the problem will come from getting the headlights alligned equally and at exactly the correct level to stop them from dazzling on coming drivers.

Local MOT station will do them for not very much money. Nice and easy to adjust if just halogen lights, a bit more complicated if you have xenons....

Thanks as always guys!

However, it looks a wee bit complicated in there, do they have the tools and expertise to do this?
