    mk5 adaptive headlights question...

    hi all, first of all i would like to mention that this is my first ever post as i am a newbie!!

    I have a 06 astra which has the adaptive xenons, i noticed that sometimes when i switch the headlights on, the light moves upwards before it settles into position. But other times it doesnt move around and just flashes on.

    Is there any reason why this happens sometimes and not all the time?

    cheers

    Welcome to the club, get some pictures posted up in the general astra section when you can

    IIRC the adapative lights are meant to move around before settling into the correct position on every start up of the engine etc. I could be wrong though so best wait for someone else to confirm!

    The adaptive forward lighting not only moves side to side, but up and down. They are self levelling. It could be that they were not in the right position when you last parked up and they are adjusting themselves to the correct position.

    I wouldn't worry about it - it's only if they start moving around wildly while you're driving that you should be concerned.
