Hi Yusuf, do you have a small circular adjuster to the right of the steering column, this raises and lowers the height of the headlights for various load settings. Just a thought but it may be set too low.

Hi Leroy

It does have an adjuster but it doesnt do to much for it, you hardly notice any change.

If I park mine against a wall or garage door and use the switch there is a fair bit of movement definatly enough to notice so I would suggest getting the missus to use the switch while you listen to see if the motors are working they are the black bits on top the headlights with a white plastic hex sticking out(this is for manual adjustment)

When I had a Laguna 1 the bars that connect the motor to the headlight lens had come off and was rattling inside the headlight easy fix though

She just tells me what colour :D

I fitted a xenon kit to my wifes espace today. Fantastic. I recommend everyone to get one. It's a full xenon kit, not just bulbs. Got it from ebay , £85 including post .


Ill post some photos if anyone wants to see. Cant show before conversion though, as i didn't take any pictures.

Your headlamps might need adjusting. I've fitted Osram Silverstars to mine and am quite surprised and the sharp beam pattern - very unlike the Laguna I had which believe shares the same headlamps as the Espace.

Has anyone tried to retro-fit the later headlights to the Espace? I believe the later ones came with projector lights?
