Adjusting Headlights

The car - 3 door Stilo 1.9JTD, not that I think it makes much difference though

How do I adjust the angle of the lights, I'm getting car drivers flashing me cos they think I am on high beam

Am I missing something blindingly obvious? I need to do it engine bay end rather than using the in-car 0/1/2 scale thing.

Cheers

Re: Adjusting Headlights

Think back, is there a reason why your headlight should be out of line? Replaced a headlight, a bulb, lowered your suspension, do you have a bulb not working, are your aligning headlight motors adjusting properly?

If they do need adjusting then it's not worth just guessing where to put the beam when a quick trip to your MOT station will align them for you for a £5 and then you know they're set up just right.

Might just be wasting your time, maybe people are flashing you because they like your car

Yeah maybe

I haven't had anything done to the car, and it isn't lowered or anything. Maybe a previous owner changed a bulb. Its been like that for quite a while just never got round to sorting it. Maybe the bulbs not quite sat right and I should take the bulb out and put it back in.

Re: Adjusting Headlights

There seems to have been a lot of people experiencing finger trouble when replacing the headlight bulbs, access is pretty dire though.
Know a good gynocologist?

The Stilos have a button on the dashboard to adjust the headlight angle.
