    Hi I replaced my rear tie bars for adjustable ones last year but never attached the Xenon headlight level sensor just wondering if it will effect my car when it comes to MOT time and should I need to have it fitted on to the new tie bar?

    hi
    dont know if they check selfleveling in the mot just yet?.
    However my front sensor was nacked and lights were poo.
    Replaced the sensor, lights now level and are much better, i would reconnect thesensor anyway.

    Worth getting it done mate, it can be checked on your MOT and will fail if its not working, also if your lights are not levelled, you could end up dazzling others and there is nothing more annoying that xenons dazzling you.

    My headlights are pointing up a bit and I have had some oncoming traffic flashing their lights at me thinking I was driving with full beams on does anyone know what the actual part is called?

    I think it is actually headlight level sensor.

    Im sure you can manually adjust them as well, if you pop your bonnet, next to the hadlight, there is a white plastic screw, you need a star screwdriver and you can adjust it using this.

    From the diagram it looks like it is the&nbsp;&nbsp;Rear left vehicle level sender -G76 this was snapped snapped off at the connection on the original tie bars have a picture here if it helps<br>

    Could always try and adjust the lights from the white plastic screws that are on the lights
