    Hi Guys,

    i had my wheels off for the first time yesterday (just got the car recently) and noticed this and wondered if u could shed some light as to what it might be, its in the front near side wheel arch

    it worrys me a bit because its bent like that

    No images for me mate. Not sure if it's the images, or my connection.

    However, from your description, sounds like the headlight adjuster. There is only one on the passenger side, and yes it should look bent.

    hhhmmm weird, the pics are showing up for me. aye well that sounds like the one as it goes up to a wee lever.
    that's ok as long as its meant to be bent, ill move onto the finding the next thing now hehe

    noe back to the nightmare task of wheel cleaning, i don't think the previous owner touched the insides of the wheels :-S

    Thanks

    Its the xenon levelling sensor, one on each axle, when doing suspension work make sure that is either undone from lower arm so doesnt snap or the arms dont drop to snap it of.

    It's suppose to be bent, if that's what you are worried about.

    Just checking, but you know it's for the headlights and not the suspension?
