    Angry Problem headlights

    Apologise in advance if im in the wrong section

    well got some SRi headlights from a vectra-c.com member in Feb...fitted and had nothing but problems since.

    first the lights wouldnt slot into the white round bits for the adjustment, once that had been done i fitted them to the car. Now after visiting 2 garages and paying to have them aligned both garages have said - 'something suspect about the lights' and another said 'they must be faulty'
    - as they cant align them properly.

    The motors work, the lights go up and down they can be adjusted left and right but below is how the lights shine.

    is it possible one of them has been switched over for continential driving? There is a lever in the back somewhere for lhd/rhd countries. You might have knocked it while fitting them.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Hmmm, if you have a manual i think its in there, but I believe there is a small white lever behind the bulb access cover somewhere. It just looks to me that they are both pointing into the middle, Passenger side one looks to be the one thats out. its where i would start
