    Default headlight question.

    I fitted new bulbs in the main and dipped beam's today. Tonight i went out in the dark and the driver's side headlight is shining very very low. It's only when you park up against a wall that you can see the beam.

    It was a real pain installing this bulb. I did fit it what i thought was OK. But could i have miss aligned the bulb ?
    I'll need to sort it tomorrow as it's like driving in the dark

    Yep, easily done mate.

    When I changed mine I went to have them aligned, one was pointing 6 feet in front of me, the other one was searching for aircraft....

    Any MOT place will do it for a fiver, but make sure you turn the headlight level control down to 2 first

    ..and then turn it back to zero when driving. Now I wonder where you got that idea from?

    That would be the "Lawson Technique" , a very useful modification

    Got mine aligned at VX the other day after fitting my Vauxhall Xenons (ooh I do love saying that). They dont seem to have done a good job or if they have they are very low to the road in front. Going to get them checked again and see what they say. Got a strange feeling they done the handbrake recall and forgot to do the lights!
