    Hello,

    Believe my headlights are angled too high, have had a few people flashing to suggest full beams are on when they aren't.

    Had a brief look in the car setting but there doesn't seem anything to adjust them. Is this a take to the garage job or is it simple enough to do?

    Thanks

    If you pop your bonnet, prize out the black plastic trim that fits between the back of the grill you will be able to see one of the fixing points for the headlamps. Loosen the screw then turn the larger disc behind it. Lock the screw back in and try it. If you can park close to a wall or garage door you can mark where your beam hits to compare.

    There should be two plastic adjusters on each lamp which require an allen key to adjust.
    Does your car have xenon or halogen lights?
    If you have xenon and haven't done any work on the headlights, your self adjusters may not be working correctly.

    Okay will have a look, they are xenon. Only work I have done is replacing the sidelights and the DRL's. That was accessing them from the back so don't imagine they will have moved with that.
