156 Headlight Adjusters

My 2002 Sportwagon just failed the MoT on headlight adjustment. Too high they said and that will be 15 please for 30 seconds work to adjust them.

Well it failed on a couple of other things too so I brought it home as the cracked windscreen could not be done till tomorrow.

I found the elevation adjuster on the back of the light clusters and did the adjustment myself against the garage door. It may not be right but should be down enough to pass.

My question is :- what is the second adjuster, white and lower down behind the cluster with a bevel gear passing drive (adjustment) into the cluster? Turning this seemed to make little difference to the beam setting.

Normal halogen lights by the way. I have searched here to no avail and the CD manual I got off eBay is about as much use as a chocolate teapot in this instance but I suppose "what can you expect for 7.50??"

Thanks for advice. Jerry

The other adjuster is left/right, the one you adjusted being up/down

Re: 156 Headlight Adjusters

Thanks David. Curious. I had expected there would be L/R adjustment but my dealer told me there was none. ?? Now I will be able to swing the RH light to give me some light in the dark spot to the right which has ticked me off for some time.

Cheers, Jerry
