    Just a quick one folks!

    I just realised couple of days that my cut-off line has 2 steps.

    I swear it should be just the one step; right?

    Both lower lines should be level so the left is too high or the right is too low

    Don't try and correct them yourself take it to an mot place its far easier

    On flat ground, i'm sure the line should be same height as the bulb from 10meters.
    Something like that anyway.

    Looks like the nearside light is set a bit high. The "line" of the lights should be the same height for both, and it will obviously kick up on the left for a lhd car.

    Their very simple to adjust, use the inner most adjuster (parked facing a wall as you are) and either raise the offside light, or lower the nearside one.

    my 1st view says your right side is too low and your left side is ok, get it to an mot place and get them to level them up for you,

    Oh and make sure your headlight range adjuster is on 0 before they are set up
