    Default Headlamp beam adjustment for europe

    Am taking the car and caravan over to france this year,
    Its a legal requirement to have the headlamp beams reconfigured for euro roads.

    Does any one have any info on how to do this APART from fitted stick beam adjusters?

    Many thanks

    Yes, it is a legal requirement.
    My pre facelift, normal headlight car has levers under the rear headlight assembly cover. Little plastic white levers that adjust the beam pattern. Work well, and easy to do, and no mess from stickers.

    Goonturbo,

    I note from your profile you have a facelift Vectra. On the assumption that the lighting is the same on this as it was on my facelift Siggy, I was informed that there is NO adjustment for the headlights - and therefore I had to buy the beam deflectors when I went over to Spain the last couple of times.

    I know there have been a number of threads about this previously so have a good look at old posts - you may find you have to just use the stick on ones after all!

    Dave
