156 Headlamp - MOT Failure

Hi Guys,

My car failed its MOT on Nearside headlamp aim aimed so that it dazzles other road users.
Same with offside headlamp.

Being a complete mechanical misfit, and having no idea on these matters could someone tell me how the headlamps are adjusted so that they don't dazzle other road users??

there should be some sort of adjusting mechanism on the headlight itself(usually a pair of bolts/screws for horizontal and vertical adjustment)...it's recommended though that headlights are set up with specialist equipment...or in front of a decent sized flat wall and by somebody who knows what he's doing

Ask the MOT station to adjust them for you. It should be a straightforward, low cost job.
