    If it's anything like the 8l s3's you need to set them to learn mode using vagcom, then get the garage to adjust them and then take it out of learn mode!

    As for the height, they are self leveling so there isn't a way of manually adjusting them.

    You need vagcom to disable the self level mechanism and then you can manually adjust the beam via the back of the headlight unit, then go back into vagcom and re enable the auto adjust and it's done.

    You can adjust them manually, using the plastic Allen head screws on the headlamp housing, I think they are 8mm from memory, word of warning though, if you don't do it right you could fail the mot if they're not aligned properly and then the garage will charge you to re align them and a retest if your unlucky.
