Re: Meganne III adjusting headlight postition

Are they standard bulbs?
Are the bulbs fitted correctly?
Are the bulbs old?

Non standard bulbs (LEDs ect) may not have the correct light pattern for the reflectors so the beam is not being focussed properly.

If the bulbs are fitted at an angle, tab in wrong place, then the pattern starts out incorrect.

If old bulbs, the silvering on the ends may be "worn" off.
Again, an unfocussed pattern that adjustment will not cure.

Silly questions otherwise.
Have you taken headlamps out and not refitted correctly?
Had a shunt?
Lowered springs?
Got a heavy weight in the boot?
Xenons and the self adjust isn't working?
