.... alow for any weight that may be in the back? Ie adjusted low, so that when your landy is loaded they come up level?

Cause although i have good light it seems to point straight down at the road, my high beam light, lights the equivalent of road/distence as my low beam on the van..


Cheers
 
Prob set too low.
Turn it around in your parking space [front to the wall] and driving it tight to the wall, put a big chalk cross on the wall where the centre of each headlight is.
Back away approx 6 feet [2 metres for you :p ]
Turn on dipped beam. The beam pattern should be a couple of inches below and left the centre cross.

Wont be dead right, but a good rough estimate. ;)

............." don't do it in the daylight tho...":D
 
And if you can't reach the centre of the headlights, stand on your tool box :rotfl:

I know im going to regret this BUT......

I have already broken the lid of my tool box using it to stand on to lean over the wing....................



(now if that dont declair the season open, I dont know what does)


Cheers

And with regards to the lights.. i nkow they are a bit low.. but adjusting will require me spending a fair bit of cash :(

I have the opposite problem. I think that my lights are aligned just fine when I don't have a load, however I've been cartin' aggregate to and fro' of late, often in the dark and I'm flashed constantly by folks who think I'm on full beam. My 1994 Vauxhall 'Chav'alier' has a dial on the dash for adjusting beam height whilst on the move... surely newer Land Rovers must have this?
