    Default Factory fit xenons adjustment.

    Does anyone know if the standard xenon headlights with auto leveling can be adjusted manually, the auto leveling has stopped working and my headlight aim is too low and because the suspension is only part sorted i just want a temp fix until its done.

    I,m sure a section within op-com can do it as i was looking at it the other day as you have 2 leveling sensors on the front and rear axle i had one break on me

    When me and my mate fitted the coilovers we didn't know about the sensor on the rear lower arm so we must of knocked all the percentages out pulling on the rear arm to remove the original spring.
    Was going to get Vauxhall to look at it whilst in for the service tomorrow but it's going to be a waste of money at the mo as coilovers are in the process of coming off (at the mo i've got coilovers on the front and standard shocks with PI's on the rear).

    If i remember correctly when Plasma connected his Tech2 to the car it was reading 45 degrees at the front and 2 degrees at the rear, sensors are still working so don't know if they might just need recalibrating.

    don't know for certain about the normal xenons, but for AFL equipped cars there are two manual adjustment point on top of the headlight to allow setting of a 'neutral' for the motors to work from. Might be the same on the normal xenons too...

    Yes, they can be adjusted. Lift the bonnet and look at the top of the headlamp assembles. Towards the rear, you should see a female cream/white coloured allen key socket. This, IIRC, adjusts the up/down movement. http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showth...ght=adjustment

    Thanks for that fella, just been out and had a go and it's lovely now i can actually see where i'm driving.
    Least now i can wait to see why the self leveling has stopped working since changing the suspension.
