    Mk5 Headlamp Adustment

    Does anyone know how to adjust the headlamps on mk5 [not found on search]
    I have found 4 adjusters [hex key] that stick out from the back of the lamps at the top both sides. 1 under and another proud from the slam panel.
    These only seem to adjust left to right not up and down.

    how do you adjust the up and down. Just move the light unit?

    the 4 adjusters you found should move them
    (a) up and down and
    (b) left to right

    Sometimes its hard to do it yourself and see whats actually moving therefore its always advisory to let the pro's do it with the correct beam setting equipment.

    **dont just move the light unit**

    The adjuster nearest the side (on the slam panel, by the headlight lens) does the verticle alignment, and the inboard one does the horizontal
