D4 Headlamp adjustment

Post by Hobgoblin » Tue Dec 11, 2018 3:40 pm

Hi All,

I am in the process of matriculating my D4 in Spain, as a result it needed an ITV (MOT) they wanted to fail it as the lights were quote "Well Out", would anyone know if they can be adjusted? Because the handbook says:

From the handbook, p58 for 2016MY:


The headlamps have a beam pattern that eliminates the need to mechanically adjust the lamps or add any external stick-on decals.

To configure the Auto high beam system for the side of the road on which you are driving, proceed as follows:

1. Using the menu control on the steering wheel, select Vehicle Set-Up via the Message centre.

2. Select Auto High Beam setting.

3. Select Drive on Left or Drive on Right, for the side of the road that you are driving.

Hi Paul,

I wouldn't know for sure, but I would expect there to be two adjusters inside the headlamp unit - one for up/down one for left/right - as there has to be some way of adjusting the base setting surely!
