    Your headlights should be adjustable to a flat beam

    Yes they are adjustable just take the rubber cover of the back of the dip beam unit and push the lever round.

    :) Ok if you've got double jointed wrists...I gave up and just put deflectors on when we went to France recently.

    Have to say I was disappointed with Hymer for not having an easy method eg adjustable from dash board switch, but maybe recent high end cars have spoilt me...

    Realy easy on the Exsis, when I picked my van up the dealer did one side I did the other, bonnet back on in 5 min, loads of room for access only thing I would say is don't do it with bare arms the edge of the bonnet is really sharp.

    Hi thanks for the photos Hubby asks if you don't have zenon bulbs there should be 2 levers he thinks they are not zenon but we only have 1 lever on each headlamp unit ? and on the sec pic the white curly thanks piping thingy ( that's my Speak ! ) is right up on top of where you say the lever is making access difficulty any thoughts on how we proceed please ?

    Mine are just standard lamps with single lever, the LH side (with the curly bit) is a bit harder but still plenty of room.

    Just remembered there maybe 2 levers I think they are joined so doesn't matter which one you turn.
