Head light adjustments 1800

Post by rowland » Tue May 29, 2018 6:28 am



Hi
Can anyone help with advice on the headlights of my 2007 . At the moment the headlights are ajusted for Uk driving on the left. I need to change them over so that the comply with the EU system who drive on the same side as the USA, on the right side. Can the headlight be adjusted or does one need to change the whole light unit. UGH!

If you look up under the front at the headlights, there are two manual adjustments on each side. One for vertical adjustment and one for horizontal.
Should be 12mm plastic nuts.

:?

I didn't know I bought a right handed Wing. I thought they were ambidextrous.

The 12mm hex head is vertical.
Philips screw is horizontal.
