Headlight Adjustment 2015 CR
on: September 10, 2020, 07:35:16 PM
Hi All,

Getting 'flashed' a lot, even in daylight, my headlights are obviously annoying people (despite having recent MOT)

Went to adjust down, located both (white) knobs but really difficult to get fingers in and turn, searched forum but no real answers as to what might ease things.

Is there a locking screw? A cunning tip for getting hold of the knobs at fingertip reach? Any tools help, anything to lubricate?

My assumption, though not yet clear is that one will do full beam and one dipped.

Is clockwise beam up or beam down?

I am most grateful for info from those who have gone before!

ATB, Barney

I assume you've looked at the Owners Manual? Clearly shows which way to turn the adjusters. If you can't reach them, you may need to move the tank or the dash.

Cheers for the pic, went to the right draw for the service manual to find it AWOL,!

Still be good to get any tips on making the adjustment easy, moving tanks and fairing not a 10 min job!

Cheers
