    Default Headlamp adjustment message after lowering

    Had my Vec lowered today (Eibachs & B4's), now got the headlamp range adjustment warning light showing on the dash. I know there is a sensor for it on one of the suspension arms. Does this need to be adjusted or is it duff?

    Any help appreciated.

    I'm guessing that during the shock/spring change, the adjuster arm for the levelling on the n/s/f or n/s/r has been bent or broken.

    Check all the bits associated with the levelling and I'll put money on it that, unless its snapped right off, you won't need a new levelling assembly.

    Well had a play around today, this is what I've found:

    -Jacking up the car makes the warning light go out.

    -After disconnecting the arms on the sensors and moving them around, I've worked out it's the rear sensor bringing the warning light on.

    -After measuring the ride height before and after it has lowered 25mm. Which is just like having 3 people in the back.

    -The headlight beams don't adjust when the lights are turned on. They used to move up and down.

    Will have to give the garage who fitted the stuff a ring and see what they say. Although at the moment might be dazzling other drivers if the lights aren't adjusting properly

    Well after searching the forum a bit more last night, found a thread with the same problem. And after bending the bracket holding the rear sensor back into shape the warning light has gone out.

    Disconnected the sensor arm as well to check the lights go up and down when the sensor is moved, and they do.

    Super relieved now, can enjoy the look and ride of the shocks and springs.

    Yeah, might ring the local dealer and see what they say. How much do you reckon they would they charge for this?
