    Depo Angels?

    Hi was just wondering what this silver rods are in these angels eyes (pic below)? Am i suppose to take them off? it does mention it in the manual how to remove them, just wondering if i should? Aslo how do i make the lights point abit down, as i have HIDs and seems to been shining abit high?
    thanks

    not sure what that little bar is for, but to align them, there's 2 torx screws on top of the unit twist the one nearest the indicator does up/down and the other screw left/right

    90% of these lights dont adjust cororectly, the rods are there to hold the incert inplace untill you fit your auto ajuster into the light

    Oh so do i need to fit the auto adjuster? so will that help bring the beam down, is it also a simple job of taking out that twisty thing and putting the adjuster in like the original light?
    thanks

    swap it straight over from your original lights and you will have some control at least

    Swapped the adjuster over, did lower the bean bit but not enough, then tried spinning the torx on the inner side of the light and that one managed to move the beam up and down not the torx near the indicator. So waiting for it to go dark and adjust them properly.
    thanks all
