  2. ICE & Blue&Me

    Hi! Does somebody know how to adjust the hights of the low beam on a 159? The right side points way too low and the left side is normal. Haven't realized it until I changed the low beams to h7 xenon. I have checked that the bulb is firmly in place. I tried to turn the long bolt coming from the...
