    Default Main Beam Adjustment

    I have searched the threads but cannot seem to find an answer to this question:

    How do you adjust the Main Beam lights?

    I have seen items on adjusting the dipped lights but not the main (high) beam.

    The ones on my 04 Signum throw the light too far to the left. On dark country lanes that is fine if you are going round a left hand bend but useless on a right hander.

    Any ideas?

    BTW - Put HIDs in my dipped and they are 1000% better than the old halogens. Well worth the money!!

    There should be no need to adjust the main beam
    If they are indeed out of alignment then that suggests the headlamp assembly needs adjusting

    you cannot adjust the main beam on its own, as it is adjusted when you set up the dip beam. follow the how 2 for setting up the dip beam and all will be well.

    Adjusting the dipped beam only alters the angle of the 'bulls-eye' lens (dipped).

    It does not adjust the headlight unit itself and so has no effcct on the main beam alignment.

    +1 on that you can't adjust the main beam separately.

    But you could do what I did - the main beam on my 2002 GSi (factory fit Xenons) was way too high, so I tipped both complete headlamp units down by wedging bits of plastic in various places. The main beam came down to something much more acceptable and then re-adjusted the dipped Xenons so that they were back at the right height. I guess I may have been lucky in that I had just enought dipped beam adjustment left to achieve this.

    This may work if your main beam is too low as well by shimming the units the other way.
