    Anyone know the relative fuse numbers? Not listed on the plastic flap on my car so I'm a bit lost

    Fuses are listed in the user manual.

    Russo, according to my Haynes manual, it is fuse 'FC5' which controls the headlight leveling. This fuse is located in the internal (passenger-side) fuse-box, and is 5 amps capacity. Hope this helps. Cheers, Geraldy212

    Checked my manual and headlight range level is f38 10 amp red fuse. Checked it and it was fine. What else could be a problem?

    Must be different between 2004 and 2006

    My headlight range control fuse is number 5 in the fusebox to the right of the steering wheel RHD model (in the box behind the end dash panel) and is 10 amp

    Mike is this for manual adjustment? Not auto levelling model? For toggle switch next to dash illumination adjuster?

    Yes - description in the book says - Fuse 5-Automatic headlight range control, AFS control unit (advanced front lighting system)/manual headlight range control 5/10 amps.

    Therefore I can assume that the manual adjustment is 10 amps.

    Just checked the driver side fuse box and number 5 was empty although behind the cover it says brake clutch switch. So I take it that it has changed. Mines a 53 plate

    Ok - so if your fuse is ok then you need to get a diagnostic scan to find the problem.

    There will be an error message that will point towards the problem. If you clear the error message and try the range control again if it doesn't work then another error message will appear.

    Then we go from there.

    Agreed - F38 is the fuse. Totally different from my set up.

    So you need a scan.

    Check out this list and see if anyone near to you. Otherwise you could always buy from NHN (member on this forum). About 240 I think.

    Could even be the switch itself, ideally you need vcds to see if it has a measuring block to ascertain if its seeing the switch adjustments being made, this is one option.

    the reostats sometimes go. I will have a spare headlight switch after i've fitted my xenons. Its basic one with headlight adjuster, side/dipped, front & back fogs.

    New one hasn't got aim adjuster as its for xenons.
