    2008 s3 head lights problems

    Hi, I have a 2008 audi s3 3dr and am having a lot of trouble with the headlights, I seams when driving at night with the lights on low beam they just are not looking forward enough.
    I just cant find am adjuster anywhere?? i know they are auto adjust but its actually hard to drive at the minute. are the lights broken or fuse out maybe?

    Any ideas would be great thanks

    Ben

    There are adjusters on the lights but from what I remeber they have to be put into an adjustment mode using VCDS before doing it otherwise it gets confused.

    As Leon states, best option is to get someone with vcds & goto an mot bay & set the adjustment mode in module 55 using basic settings, then adjust manually via the 2 hex white plastic fixings on the top of the headlights.

    Suspension work usually throws this out & also possibly broken arms due to suspension or that area work done.

    Happy days! Does that mean the car was always thinking there was some fat tw@ in the back?

    £36 is very cheap if the rear sensor wasn't under warranty, as they're usually £114+
