I noticed a white knob on the back of the headlight housing (looks like a cog-wheel) but turning this doesn't seem to make a difference.

Is it, at all, possible to do any mechanical adjustments of the low beam angle, or is it all in software?

If yes, then where do I find the adjustment screws?

Do I need to remove any cover to reach them?

I'd be really thankful for any advice.

On my Laguna with xenons there is a light coloured plastic adjuster nut which you can use to set each headlight manually, it is above the centre of each headlight in a recessed hole in the cross member.

A problem well stated is a problem half solved !
