Re: Xenon Headlights - solved?
Your solution gave me the clue to sorting out normal headlights, which have been causing me a problem. This wrinkle does not appear in the service manual CD and I believe causes dealers to mis-diagnose so that a complete lamp assembly is the solution to a problem of loss of adjustment. Many thanks for this it has been invaluable.
So the proceedure is
remove the plastic shield above the radiator, it makes access easier
take of the cover behind the dipped lamps
Remove the adjstment motors, if they are a tight fit then there is probably no problem
Extend the yellow adjustment rod to its full extent by turning the allen key socket on the motor housing
put downward pressure on the lamp holder in the dipped lamp. and hold. offer up the ball joint on the adjustment rod and press; there is a discenable clich as the two connect together.
Inset the motor into the housing, relase the pressure on the buld holder and twist the motor into place. The bulb holder will now feel firm. The lamp height can be adjusted using the allen socket on the motor housing. replace the plastic covers. In addition I have replaced the bulbs using xenon filled halogen units, excellent.
