    Set the interior knob at 0 before aiming the headlights

    0 is the highest setting and it's where the MOT man will set the lights before checking the alignment

    AFAIK theree are no numbers on them, maybe an 8P expert can tell you different. But tbh its not good you setting it the same as someone else as the light could be fitted slightly differently, or your suspension different
