    I bought a set of Eurolite beam adaptors months ago and now I've come to fit them I can't find the instructions. The website isn't much help as it tells you to refer to a digram but doesn't feature it :cry: My van isn't listed - 2000 Fiat Ducato and of course I've left it until the last minute as we bog off on Saturday :Angry: Can anyone help?

    You can always do what I have done for the past 11 years..
    Throw them in the glove box.. In the unlikely event someone takes you to task pull em out and say sorry ! :Blush: Forgot.. will do it now.. You can slap em on anyhow as they ( the person taking you to task ) will know even less about them than you ! :Rofl1:

    The are only for the dipped beam. Look where that is ( I think you have two separate bulbs ) and stick them in front.

    They seem to do just about F.All so hardly matters exactly where you stick them.

    If you want to do a bit better job, work in the dark and experiment on blocking the dip-left bit that is into the eyes of Johnny Foreigner.

    or ask a friendly mot tester to put them in the right place for you which is what i did as my headlights have no markings on them (plastic glass) unlike the old headlights made with glass

    Sorry about the size :Doh:.had to re size 5 times before it would upload
    If you can see it, the left side is what you will see standard and the right side is what your after:thumb:
    Drive upto a wall or garage door or get someone to hold a board in front of the head lights one at a time, about 2 foot away, switch on lights and locate the image with the kick off to the left, without removing the sticky back protection place mask in various places on the lens untill you create a straight top line in the light beam, with no visable kick off as shown in the right hand side diagram,
    That is the place to stick your mask:thumb:
    Beam Bender is a bit of a miss namer as all you are doing is maskig the kick off
    If when you check you already have a straight line top edge to your light image, you have no use for the mask,( modern lamps are found like this) a kick off to the right indicates you have European lamps fitted already
    As suggested any Mot Staion should help you out if your unsure
