  • Have you got electric level adjusters on your lights?

    Either way, the up and down adjustment is on the back of the lights, in the bottom outside of the back. So that would be bottom left for passenger side, bottom right for drivers.

    It's and adjustment screw diagonally on the back of the light, you should be able to get a philips screw driver on it.

    Left and right adjustment is on the top oof the light (bonnet open looking down at light unit) a whithe plastic hexagonal screw.

    I had electric level adjusment on my old MX, the motors went nuts and poped the adjusters off the lense, beams were every where! Check the lenses inside unit are on tight.
