The one i have pointed out is for the height adjustment. Not sure where the sideways adjustment is, possibly on the back. Or possibly non-exsistant

There is no sideways adjustment.

Here is a clearer picture of the height adjuster, should be a yellow colour.

Good posts squeak.

Hopefully another Lag 2 owner will confirm on how to adjust the aim.
hi there

just back in doors from doing the adjustment and did exactly what you said and it worked great. tell me does it have to be exactly spot on to a mm or will my judgment be OK will it go on a test machine ?!!!

Yep,thats right,it's not millimetre perfect so you should be OK.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
