    Changed head light bulb but...

    it seems to be pointing far to low. Is there way of changing the leveling on them? I know there's the dial inside the car but the other headlight is fine.

    It points down to about 3-4 metres in front of the car and it's annoying lol.

    I wouldn't start adjusting the headlight.
    Sounds like the holders not located in the back of the headlight properly.

    If it was right with the old bulb, it'll be right with the new one.

    it seems to be located in the back of the headlight properly, but still points considerably lower than than the left headlight.

    any other ideas?

    cheers

    no! seemed fine before. It's also securely in the holder etc. It's just annoying cos I can't see things to the right hand side properly at night lol!
